emulationstation on windows PC

I am building my own image for the pie. I have learned much doing this.
Anyone did this for a PC here?
Questioning if other ROM sets become usable with more powerful CPU and much better GPU ?

Yes, my old emu box was a Broadwell i3 NUC and it ran PS2 and Gamecube fairly well - slight hangup now and then. Just had to keep them to their native resolutions and not do any upscaling. Upgrade to a Coffee Lake i3 this year and its running everything without a hiccup. CPU is the big deal, GPU is fairly irrelevant for emulation, though it does come into play when you start using shaders and stuff like that.

I am enjoying building my image on the pie.
I like how I am keeping 1UP theme. (I know ....nasty subject here  :dunno) but as I mod each cab I want to keep same theme.
So stronger builds but same theme is a win for me
