Need new video card or monitor?
« on: February 12, 2022, 03:24:40 pm »
   Hello, i'm upgrading my Blitzz99 Mame cabinet. My old pc died wich had a AGP acadevga card. My new computer only hasa  PCIe slot. Looks like Ultimarc doesnt have anymore Arcade VGA 5000 cards anymore. Do i need to buy an LCD monitor now or is there anyway way to keep my existing Arcade monitor?

A Radeon/ATI card with CRT_emudriver + Groovymame:

Or maybe GroovyArcade if you prefer linux (same board as above).
Check out my completed projects!

Agreed. An ATI HD5450 is a pretty good choice and you can usually grab one off of eBay for $20 or less even with the current GPU shortage because most people see no value in them. For MAME though, it runs most excellent.

After a 15 year hiatus I'm finally working on getting a MAME PC working again.  The last ArcadeVGA card I used was the 9200 AGP card.  I also have an ArcadeVGA 5000 card I had bought a few years ago, but never got around to using.  Instead I've decided to use a Radeon 7750 with CRTEmudriver.  If you want stick with ArcadeVGA I'd sell my 5000 PCIe version.
