Been working on the cabinet and the computer in parallel. Going to be a two player with trackball and probably two guns.. was Going to do a raspberry pi 3  build but Intel is giving me a Skull canyon and 1 TB SSD.

To answer your question from the other thread. I went with a 27" monitor. I made my cabinet narrower to fit in the spot I wanted it. To be honest your so close to the screen I wouldn't want it bigger. I don't have any pics of it without the bezel on my phone but here's what it looks like now.

If your posting from a mac this form doesn't seem to handle alignment correctly from phones. Open your photo in previews, then hit command + R, save it (command +S), then hit command R talked it's back in the proper alignment and hit save again than post. It took me like year to figure why my stuff was never alive properly when posted.

Looks great. Nice work. What did you use for your bezel?

Used plexiglass. Just tapped up the area where the monitor was and spray painted it black on the backside. Made some brackets and used 3m Velcro tabs to hold it in place. You can see the brackets on either side of the monitor.

Sounds like you got the hookup on a powerful setup from Intel. What do you plan on playing on it? Cab looks nice so far, btw.

Thanks.
Tha computer should give me tons of Lessway on what I can play. I'm doing a 2 person setup, trackball, and 2 aimtrak guns. Hoping to get some modern stuff in there as well like mortal Kombat x, but not sure the requirements for those yet. Working on getting hyper spin and hardware up and running first.

Just ordered a 32gb intel optane memory module to speed this computer up, another freebie.

Bought mortal Kombat xl and have that working

Almost done with my hyperspin setup.
