Title: Arcade/PC items for sale (Cheap desktops/laptops - Windows 10 ready)
Post by: TKW4rr10r on August 15, 2013, 09:18:04 am
Located in Upstate SC if looking for a local pickup. PM me any offers for cash or trade.
PMs will always take priority over any responses in this thread.


Looking for Ė
Cabinets: (Any condition considered)
Nintendo VS Red Tent,  Nintendo PlayChoice 10 Bar-top, Golden Tee Complete, Q-Bert, Capcom 'Big Blue', NeoGeo 6-Slot, Pac-Man Cabaret, Dig Dug Cabaret
PCBs: (if not working/tested, PM me details so we can work something out)
Millepede, Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, RadarScope, Popeye, PlayChoice 10, Nintendo VS, TMNT (any 4 player), Simpsons (4 player)

Currently Selling Ė

17"/19" LCDs. 4:3 Ratio, most without bases, but with VESA mounts. Still all in mint perfect condition for builds. ($10 for 17", $20 for 19")
This does NOT include shipping, will quote best rate dependent on Qty / address.


PCs:

The Basic: This is the same model PC that has been sold before in the promo run.
-   i5 CPU ( model  660 Ė 3.33 GHz )
-   8GB DDR3 RAM (Can use 16GB Maximum)
-   250GB HDD
-   DVD Drive
-   VGA and DisplayPort out
-   Windows 7 Pro 64-bit pre-installed and activated
-   Shipped with new USB keyboard and mouse, power and network cables.
-   Small Form Factor (SFF) casing. This is not as small as the tiny form factor PCs I sold a while back. But are still smaller than your average desktop. Dimensions are 12x4x14. Or de-case the PC for even tighter installations.

As the name suggests, this is the bare bones (for being an i5 chip set) system at a cheap price. These will be sold with just 2GB Ram to start (this was how they were deployed a couple years ago) with the option to have this upgraded to 8GB MAX from me if needed. I simply do not have enough spare memory to offer them all with additional sticks, and wanted to keep these as close to that original promo rate as possible.[/s]
Price will be $110 including shipping for 8GB, more than half off the price at Newegg.


As of 1/4/2016, out of stock of the 'Modder' will update thread on a first come / first severed basis once final inventory is done.
The Modder: This desktop is a step above the Basic.
-   i5 CPU (model 2500 Ė 3.3GHz)
-   8GB DDR3 RAM
-   All other specs similar to Basic model above

The name is in reference to the parts used in this model. While the parts in the basic are designed for the case it ships in, the Modder is built with using industry standard ATX parts. This means the mainboard has a standard ATX PSU connection and can be transferred to any standard PC case that supports a Mini-ATX board.  If you plan on adding a PCI-Express video card and eventually upgrading the PSU, this would be the model to look at.
Price will be $150 including shipping for 8 GB, an additional 8GB is $30. Again more than  half the price of what Newegg would charge.


As of 3/7/2016, out of stock of the standard 'Portable'. I do have limited quantities of a newer model and will update thread on a first come / first severed basis once final inventory is done.
Portable: Some of you were asking if my next ĎItemí would be a laptop. Well ask and you shall receive!
-   i5 CPU ( model M 240 Ė 2.4 GHz)
-   4GB DDR3 SoDimm RAM (Upgradeable to 8GB)
-   160GB HDD ( NOT SSD )
-   14" LCD (resolution 1440 x 900)
-   Windows 7 Pro 64-bit pre-installed and activated
-   Will ship with extra power brick (2 total)
-   Laptop Bags, cable locks, or other accessories available upon request/quote


Again, Iím very limited on extra memory, so itís priced down due to that fact. Iím not offering memory upgrades in house until this changes. The only exception is the docking station port on the bottom of the unit. I do not have a spare dock to fully test this port, so I cannot guarantee that function at time of shipment. Most would not be using this so I do not see this being an issue.
Price will be $150 including shipping. $100 shipped for a limited time. Upgrade to 8GB for an additional $30. This at least $100 cheaper than the lowest sketchy prices I found online for this model.




Terms:
- What is described is the PC being shipped out. These are PCs coming off a business contract and will have very little warranty left or be out of warranty. I will provide 30 days support if there are any issues. Due to me not knowing how in the heck these are used once they leave my sight, I really can't offer anymore than that. But ask anyone who has bought from me before. My goal is happy friends in the hobby. If something should happen down the line, failed HDD, need a new fan, etc. just reach out. If more details are needed I'll respond to PMs and responses in the thread and update the main post as needed.
- These will ship ONLY with a preloaded and pre-activated  copy of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. No other software is implied or offered at this time.
- Do not ask me what emulator / game / software will run on this PC. You have the specs and can talk to our friend Google for any of your own research prior to purchase. Others in the thread here as well can tell you what they have tested.
- Paypal is preferred payment and this will not be asked for until the shipment is ready to be sent out. Tracking # will be provided once payment is verified.
- Please provide full name and shipping address on PM order requests to speed up the process.

Shipping:
I will ship either UPS or USPS if you have a preference. If the items require a quote on shipping (such as LCDs) pleae don't ask for a quote unless you have a genuine interest in making a purcahse. I make no profit on shipping in these cases so I will do my best to get you the best rate available at that time. PC prices listed above with shipping included are only valid for the continental United States. This does not mean I wonít ship to Canada or elsewhere, but quotes will need to be worked out first. To be honest, Iíve told people in these scenarios in the past youíll be better off looking for local deals in C-List or eBay. But I wonít turn those away that prefer to get their parts from me ;-)

I'll re-list anything arcade related I'm selling once I'm unpacked and settled from our move. Then I'll have a better idea what I'm selling/keeping.

Thanks for looking.  :cheers:

I have to double check, but I believe I have to to 50, a mix of HP and Viewsonic.
The joys of everyone wanting new widescreens, I guess.

Well then. I know my source when I need them. And by need them, I mean shortly, when I unleash my new hoarde of bartops and mini-pins onto the world.

Good on ya, man! (And by that, I mean "damn, I hope I get a bulk discount!")

Can get discounted UPS ground shipping to lower those costs. Bulk orders get a discount and prices are negotiable. Make me an offer.

Do those PCs use an external power supply?

Nevermind - just re-read the original desciption and saw it includes a power brick.

Yeah, external power adapters included. Not "original xbox360" crazy big size, either  :lol Would easily fit in tight builds no problem.

Got your PM and responded. Thanks.

Was able to grab some Ultra-slims for the first orders. Didn't realize a difference in Ram between my dc7800s and dc7900s. Updated the listing with the difference in specs between the two. They are upgradable to 8GB, but I do not have the parts currently to upgrade them above stock.

Because of this, I discounted the dc7800s even more. $65 per PC!!!  :o I'm digging up power bricks for any additional orders so let me know if you are interested. Have about 20 left, a mix of 7800s and 7900s. First come first served.

I want to thank those that PM'ed me about current orders and interest for the PCs. For those who already contacted me about possible PC orders, I'll have shipping quotes done and ready for tomorrow. I needed to wrangle my company's courier so I could get some quotes on UPS ground. They get a discount, so I'd rather wait until I get their quote to save you some money, than make a run to the UPS store or USPS.

Make sure this is ok with your employer! I worked for Purolator, and while we were permitted an employee discount for shipping, we were not permitted if the items we were shipping were 'for profit' items. They have a pretty hard line on that, to the point that people did get fired for shipping even their E-Bay sales via the company discount.

Just watching out for you!

Thanks for the lookout. I checked it with them ahead of time. I'm paying the shipping, and no issues with them so all good.

Sending out a bump in case there is anymore interest in the mini-PCs. Sold a few so far, and have plenty more waiting. Will need to order some more power supplies for the next batch, so holding off until I get some more interest in them.

No shipping is extra, but I get a good discount on UPS ground. When placing an order I need an address for the shipping quote. So far most quotes were 1/2 the price I would normally have to pay in shipping.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr. :timebomb:

Just received word of one of the power bricks I ordered for the PCs arrived DOA. The first few orders shipped with my bricks and understandably worked fine. The last 4 or so were shipped with the replacement (but still OEM) bricks, so I'm awaiting word back if this was just a one time mishap or if they all have issues.

The PCs are fine, they are thoroughly tested before shipped. But the cords on my workbench are permanently wired, so not the same ones shipped in box. Trying to have some boxes per-staged for shipment was my mistake, so I'll be testing these bricks going forward.

Until I hear back from my other orders, I'm temporarily pausing any new orders of mini-pcs. I want to make sure everyone is properly taken care of (and my supplier of the power bricks strung up if needed) before proceeding. First goal is full-filling my previous commitments and making these forum members happy. Will update when I can start taking new orders.

Everything else, including LCDs and such is still up for grabs.

As soon as I get the power brick issue investigated/resolved, I'll let you know. So far it's just been one shipped out and one here with the issue, but waiting to hear back from another order to be sure. I don't want to send anything out until every previous customer is fully taken care of and I can be sure no more issues remain. I'm still livid with this vendor  :angry:  I will definitely be getting a refund and looking elsewhere for any future power brick orders.

I'm still livid with this vendor  :angry:  I will definitely be getting a refund and looking elsewhere for any future power brick orders.

Just an update of events of the past week to those interested in the PCs:
- I've already shipped working units (some from my personal PCs in my home network) to take care of any previous customers effected. As stated previously my first priority was to quickly take care of any forum members and make sure everyone was happy before even thinking of processing any new orders.
- My first vendor for power bricks finally responded and will give me a refund once he gets the defective units back. I'll be sending return labels to the 2 effected orders to have those sent back to me.
- In the meantime I ordered 10 more bricks from a 2nd vendor, only to be burned AGAIN by shoddy equipment.  :angry:  Already getting an RMA on those, but frustrating nonetheless. Of course like Vendor #1, I'll have to pay for shipping these back for a refund.
- Trying a 3rd vendor and will be getting those bricks mid next week. Only ordered 5 from him, since I already spent almost $300 on bad power bricks so far. These were supposedly "tech tested" before being shipped out and carry a warranty, so we'll see once I get a hold of them and do some burn in testing sessions on my equipment. Once I can be sure of their quality I'll process the first 5 orders I got via PM and place another order through this vendor.

I already have the PCs tested and imaged for those needed an OS, so as before just waiting on extra power bricks. I do apologies for any delays in those interested, I just don't want to process any orders until I can be sure those will be absolutely happy with their PCs.

Good news:

Finally got some working power bricks from the 3rd vendor mentioned previously. Between that and hopefully getting refunds soon from my last two failed attempts, I can start processing more orders again. I'll reach out to those I can ship with these and start the process going again. Doing first PM'ed, first served, but will get to everyone interested as I get more in.

I appreciate the understanding and patience you guys showed me in the PM's. For those not 'lucky' enough to be burned by anyone on eBay, I hope you don't have to deal with what my last couple weeks were.

Who's got two thumbs, and just received two near-mint condition 17" LCD's at a great price, and in record time??? THIS GUY! Damn, they even had the proper screws in the back for the VESA mounts. That just saved me a) a trip to Home Depot and b) about $5 per monitor.

Now, if only I had some bartops to put them in...

;)

Definitely recommend TKW4rr10r for all of your LCD needs!!!

Update:

As of 10/8/2013, I'm pulling the 7900s off the for-sale thread. 7800s are still for sale.

I have to thank the community for the response and positive feedback to the PCs so far. At this point, I'm dwindling down to the last of the 7900s, so in order to honor any PMs I got to this point, and to get a hard count of what I have left (not to mention I wanted a couple for my own projects  >:D), I'm removing the listing of that model.

-IF- I find out I had more left then I thought and/or some people back out of their orders, I'll post however many I have left willing to sell in a first PM, first sold basis. The 7800s are still a great model and the only "downside" I see is the lower amount of Ram, depending on your application. Again, these are upgradable to 8GB Ram (really, 4GB is plenty) I just do not carry those parts. Get a cheap PC and buy some memory from newegg/amazon and call it a day  ;)


Again, anyone who PM'ed me interested in a 7900 BEFORE I removed the listing today still have the amount they were interested on hold for them. Don't worry. I'll reply with shipping quotes as I get orders ready to ship and some more tested power bricks in.

Thanks for never PMing me.

Looking to raise some funds for current projects. Prices are negotiable. Location is upstate SC if looking for local pickup. PM me any offers for cash or trade.


I could say the same, sir.

Most who post items for sale are looking at their PM's first for orders / questions, before constantly checking the thread. That's to make things fair for everyone (PM's are permanent, comments on the thread are not).

How much RAM can the 7900 handle?
How many USB ports does it have?

Send me a PM, thanks.

Also, you didn't ask about placing an order, just questions on the product, that Rick already answered for me.
If you intended on ordering one and stated such I'd have no problem holding one aside for you.

But like I stated before, I'll post any amount of 7900s I have left willing to sell when I'm done current orders for them. I'll be sure to post them here since PMs are out of the question  ;)

Just wanted to share that I purchased (3) of the 7900 PCs w/19" monitors and stands and am very happy.  I held off on any feedback as we had some power supply issues to work out, but with the replacement units on-hand and everything working, I am pleased as punch.  Great communication all along the way.  Now there's nothing in the way of building my first bartop...thanks again!

Who ordered before they get their questions answered so they know if it's what they need?!

It's your job as the seller to respond & sell the product to me. Not the other way around.

Stop acting like an entitled ---tallywhacker--- and do your homework. It is NOT the seller's responsibility to give you information on a product you want on your terms.

Google, ---maternal-smurf---! Do you speak it??!

The seller isn't a store. He's just a guy selling some ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- he has lying around. He's been nothing but honorable in his dealings with me.

I feel like I shouldn't need to respond, since so many have already. But....
Who ordered before they get their questions answered so they know if it's what they need?!

It's your job as the seller to respond & sell the product to me. Not the other way around.

So is the issue that Rick's answer to your questions was not good enough, or that I didn't elaborate on it? Or was it that you feel somehow hurt that I did not personally reach out to you and ask about your interest in a PC before taking a model off the thread, when you only asked for details on the product and showed absolutely zero interest in buying either in the thread or lack of requested PM? :dunno

Look, all the joking around from others here aside: It's not my place or "job" to hand-hold anyone through the process of buying something from me. And I wouldn't expect that looking to buy from someone else here. You're either interested or not, plain and simple. I have no problem answering questions, but within reason. I cannot test every emulator/program people want to know if it works or not. The PC specs are listed at the top for a reason. And as Rick so elegantly posted, Google is your friend for more details. I would have responded with the exact details, but he beat me to the punch. Like most others here I have a life outside the thread and couldn't get to that question sooner. Sorry.

But obviously others here were interested enough to PM me, since I had to remove the 7900s off the post from depleting my stock. You snooze you loose. Happens to all of us. But don't go making some snarky comment and think you are doing yourself any favors with me or anyone else. Seriously, are you going to complain to Game Stop when they sell out of PS4s while they didn't take the time to answer all your questions?  :cry: :hissy: :cry:

 :blah: Moving on....

I've purchased a 7900 and 19" LCD.  It has been folding in the basement for about a week.  This was the first thing I could think of to test it.  Not that it is the prime candidate for folding.  One of these days I'll try to play some games on it.

I am a happy camper.

Great to hear!  :cheers: Never thought about folding, but that's as good a test as any I guess.

I also got a dozen more power bricks in recently, so I can get some out quickly to anyone looking to purchase some 7800s. I'm prepping one myself for a dedicated build soon.

Posting for a  :bump

Also here to state anyone looking for a 7900 still, I have 3 left willing to sell from supplies. Since these are the last I'm selling of this model prices are $80+Shipping per PC. That's for the PC and power brick, if adding a LCD and stand look at the first post for combo pricing. Any others will be spoken for personal projects, so get these while they last.

First to PM for them gets them.

Plenty of 7800s and LCDs left as well.

OK, calling the 7900s SOLD OUT while I work on current PMs and requests. Been pretty under the whether lately but working so should be able to answer everyone's questions today. If you already contacted me about the 7900s before the posting of this message then you are fine, no worries. Thanks again for the support.

Post by: TKW4rr10r on January 19, 2015, 03:59:00 pm
1/19/2015:
Major update on my FS/FT thread. Life pulled me away for a while ( http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,143118.msg1484201.html#msg1484201 (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,143118.msg1484201.html#msg1484201) ) but hopefully I can start getting to some projects in 2015. I also have what I hope is a good deal for anyone looking for equipment:

Iíve been sitting on literally a mountain of equipment that Iíve been poked and prodded at getting rid of. And the aforementioned Ďlife outside the hobbyí has been doing a good job at keeping me with little free-time to tackle it.

Well a friend of mine recently came on hard times and his situation finally gave me the fire under my seat to get started. My current home life has me with very little liquid funds of my own, so Iím doing a run of 20-25 PCs steeply discounted so I can drum up funds to help them out. He helps me in getting the ball rolling in selling equipment off so I donít have to stare at it anymore, and I help him in his current situation.

After the 20-25 I will need to take a break to tackle things back at home. It actually takes more time than most realize to coordinate things like this besides all the work in making sure everyone stays happy. And this first round is really just me helping someone else out. I have another kid due beginning of April so time right now is a hot commodity. But if interest is there Iíll use this experience to make some permanent low prices for anyone who is still in need. I just canít promise the same price/spec, but Iíll keep it as close to this as possible. By then Iíll also have some exciting additions to give an actual Ėselection-.

I also updated the Ėwhat Iím looking for- section. If I do any trades towards any items it wonít affect the discounted run. Thatís purely the charitable side as mentioned before so getting arcade equipment wonít help them, lol. I encourage anyone needing PC equipment besides that run to PM me directly, as I do have other items Iím not ready to make available to everyone until I have more free-time to handle the requests.

As always, thanks for looking.  :cheers:

This looks like a good deal. I will need a pair of machines for two projects I am working on shortly. Are these HPs? 8200-8300 from the spec/vintage I would guess. I need to check with the boss (wife) and I'll get back to you tomorrow.

These are actually IBM (Lenovo is the new name if I recall). I don't know the exact model # off hand but I can provide that to anyone who needs more details then the specs posted in the main post.

Donít worry I got your PM and have you locked in. As soon as I hear back from my courier on the current price quotes I'll PM your price.

No problem, bud. Let me know what type and what capacity you are looking for per stick. PM me details.

Like I stated before, I do have a lot, and I mean a lot of other parts. But right now I'm advertising those PCs until I have more time to manage other inventory. But anyone with a special request can PM me and I'll do my best to help you out.

Another reminder:

I deal in primarily PMs to keep orders fair and in order for first come / first serve basis. I'll be checking the thread when I can, but it's too easy for someone to change posts after the fact, not so with PMs. Just trying to keep it fair. And C.Y.A. for myself  ;) By all means post here as well if you want and I'll answer when I can as shown above.

Also, PLEASE read the main post about shipping before PM-ing me. I need a name+full address to get a discounted shipping quote. Only half of the orders so far gave me an actual address, so they are getting quotes today. My courier cannot quote me on just a zip code.

Thanks guys for the support, so far we have about 10 PCs accounted for if all the orders go through.

I fail to see what is wrong with the question.  Gauntlet Legends is a demanding game and an excellent benchmark of PC performance in this hobby.  I've been able to emulate PacMan and Samurai Showdown for 15 years, I don't need another "good for old games" device.

Waiting to hear back from my courier on the first round of shipping quotes. Did not want to bombard him with them all at once.

After I gets those, PMs will be going out to those to confirm they want to order. I'll then hit him up with the next round of shipping quotes.

The plan is to have my first batch of PCs (6-12) ready to ship withing the next couple days. 2nd round very soon after.

Also had one follow-up question. The intel i5 processor, do you know if its the i5-2500, i5-3550 or the i5-4590. There is a decent difference between the 3 of them. (Looking at passmark's site, those are the 3 i5 they have listed at 3.3ghz)

Good lord, I thought this would gather interest but had know idea it would blow up so quickly.  :dizzy:

If (and that's a huge IF from past experience here) the current parties interested follow through on their orders, I'm just about out of this promo run of PCs. I haven't collected any funds yet from anyone, since I don't believe in charging until these are boxed up and ready to head out the door. Unfortunately (or fortunate depending on your view) work has been extremely busy this week and I have a very pregnant wife at home who needs the rest of my time. The goal is to have them all ready by week's end or Monday.

Those who I haven't quoted shipping to yet should get this sometime today.

As of right -now-  I'm not taking anymore guaranteed orders on the promo run. If anyone backs out and more free up, I will take those who still PM me and let them know first in order of messages received.

This does not mean I'm out of equipment, not by a long shot. But I will need to gauge how much I can let stock go for after this run. As stated previously this run was done as a favor, and I have limited parts to make everyone contain 8GB of Ram. I'd like to keep them as close to $50 still as possible, though. I'll update once I can make the figures work. I also hope to add more variety in stock soon.


The two newbies above have their spots held, but do some posts, damnit, I'm not posting anyone's personal info in this thread so hit me up on PM once you get your 5 in.

As some have mentioned above first payments were requested since orders are getting ready. first 10 boxes got prepped last night for pickup this am (currently 1AM here). Trying to get to these as time allows since work has been crazy. Tracking #s PM'ed to those who paid.

A few more shipping quotes going out via PMs, and will get the remaining tomorrow from the courier hopefully. Again, I don't ask for payment until I have the order ready to be shipped out the door, so don't get anxious if I don't respond right away. Anyone I communicated with is still locked in.

Once I know of any remainders of the run I'll be responding to those you showed interest in order. Anyone who doesn't respond in 24hrs goes to the next in line. Just trying to keep it fair. Some were custom orders so I'm not counting those against the run. If we run out of names I'll post a first come first served update in the thread.

OK. All remaining orders (but a couple I'm waiting on shipping quotes on) were set for ship Friday PM/ Monday AM (depening on when the UPS guy takes them). Tracking #s were provided to anyone who paid.

Going through my PMs, everyone should be accounted for except for shipping quotes to jpS14 and Anpanman, which I'll have Monday. IF I'm mistaken let me know and I'll make sure to accommodate anyone I may have missed.

That leaves 6 more I can do in this promo run.

Again, PMs are taken first, so fist 6 in will take priority, and any other will be in line if any fall through.

Due to the quick response on this I'm working on making more available, but do not have the specifics yet. But I simply cannot do them all under the same price / spec, but trying to work on keeping it as close to the promo rate as possible.

Malenko, please test Gauntlet Legends.  Thanks.

you are such a pain in my dick, but I love you so here goes:

During *ACTUAL* game play (ie not during the intro or CGI scenes)
with the dip set to medium res (512x384) the game runs mostly at about 95%  , it goes as low as 87% but as high as 100%.
with the dip set to standard res (512x256) the game runs 100%

Im sure adding any non super crummy video card will allow it to play 100% even at medium res.

Now do NFL Blitz

ran Blitz 2k, 100% even at medium res.  Cant do any more testing while at work, sry boo. I'd assume it'll run 100% on earlier versions of blitz.



Things of note(!):

Ran on Win 7 64 Pro
Used MAMEUI64 0.148 (jan 11, 2013 build)
As you know Blitz2k freezes at the first match up screen, so I based the test on the game demo of game play, not videos/CGI  I dont feel like downloading the regular blitz roms/chd while Im at work.

You realize you are now the official 'tester' now, right?

PM'ed about an additional 2.

Yeah they have a PCIe 16x card slot, so any low profile card that's not a power suck should work fine. Or full height card if you decide to de-case it. Thinking about doing that for a bartop build myself.

prolly a GeForce 8XXX series (like an 8800GT)

I hate ATI and their drivers, and the 9XXX series requires a 400w power supply.   I just cant say how great or bad it'll perform for PS2 emulation but it should be ok

Thanks. PS2 is really on the low end of the emulating I want to do. Demul and lower is really in my wheel house along with maybe a game of SF4 or two.

OK,

Had a few extra PMs and since I didn't have time to post this yet I'm grandfathering them in. But as of right..........

.... now the promo units are over. :cry: Anyone who reached out to me before this post have a unit held for them.

I want to thank everyone for their support. The funds form these will be going to a good cause and I'm blown away that I got such a quick response. Thought it would take several weeks to sells through the allotment. Those who came through on orders please keep me posted and let me know if I can be of any further help. If you can take a moment for a good trade mention after testing your PC(s) that would be swell.

This is not to say there are no more PCs. Issue is I simply do not have enough spare RAM to make them all 8GB (they originally deployed with just 2GB). I thought I would be working on these until the baby came, but since I have some weeks left I will look into selling more. Just working out a fair price for the equipment+time going into this.

Those talking about specifics on standard vs. non-standard parts -  the next model up (m91p) uses a standard mATX mainboard and PSU connections. So it can easily be  transferred to any standard case and use other PSUs, if that's what you are going for. Something to think about depending on your needs, but I'm not "officially" selling that model yet  ;)

I'm also prepping on another item to offer, but will be reaching out to a few who already placed orders on their opinion on a fair price.

I'll update once I have some news. This will be hopefully in the next week. Anyone still looking for a PC please PM me and I'll take care of ya.

Yeah it counted. Still trying to get shipping quotes on the last couple orders but my courier was out sick the last couple days. Should have them Monday, Everything else has been shipped out this afternoon.

Also still waiting on confirmation on an order, if I can't get word from him the first person ordering the revised rate/spec will just get a free RAM upgrade  :lol

Should have those details ironed out soon. I'll PM some of you that ordered from me your opinion on pricing of my next item. Want to keep it BYOAC 'Bro' pricing, but paying for my time in this too....

Post by: TKW4rr10r on February 26, 2015, 05:27:42 pm
OK guys,

Between the wife needing bed rest on the pregnancy, crazy work hours, and insane weather, Iím finally getting around to doing an official update on parts availability.

I need to thank the BYOAC community again for the support in the limited PC run earlier this year. As mentioned previously this was mainly to help a friend in tough times and also light a fire under my butt in getting some of this old stock some new homes. The positive feed-back and overwhelming interest is spurring me to keep going until my schedule just cannot permit it.

The limited run has also taught me much in the process and experience, so Iím adjusting things a bit to make this easier for everyone:

- Prices will now be listed as including shipping. While I was able to get discounted shipping going through a 3rd party, many of the delays and headaches were tied to not having complete control over the transaction process end-to-end. Iíve started my own accounts with UPS and USPS, so now people know up front what the total cost Iím charging will be. However, this will be for the continental US ONLY. This does not mean I wonít ship to Canada or elsewhere, but quotes will need to be worked out first. To be honest, Iíve told people in these scenarios in the past youíll be better off looking for local deals in C-List or eBay. But I wonít turn those away that prefer to get their parts from me ;-)

- Iím listing 3 models to start: The Basic, The Modder, and the Portable.  See the main post for details.

Anyone who tried to reach out to me a little while ago asking about end of promo run PCs, I will get back to you in the next day or so. I have your names down and I will honor anyone I told via PM that I would be sending you one at that old promo rate.

I can't speak for the emulation questions but as stated in the original post if looking to upgrade video I would personally go with the Modder. They both have PCI express x16 slots, but the modder uses standard ATX parts, so would be much easier to upgrade over time.

I've personally used a cheap MonoPrice Display Port to HDMI adapter on a Modder to connect to a TV in the past. It was also able to do audio pass-through that adaptor, so just one cable from the PC - TV. I can't say for sure if the Basic can do the same, since it uses a different mainboard, but it also has displayport out video and the standard 3.5mm out for audio. I'll have to test it to be sure.

Side Note:

Didn't place this in the main post as this doesn't apply for most. But if anyone is looking for something even cheaper than the Basic, I have some older Core 2 Duo boxes I can setup. I don't have many of these and was going to scrap them, if anyone has a particular need for something of that vintage let me know. Wasn't going to go through the trouble of cleaning some up and creating a base Windows 7 image unless it was worth it to anyone.

The one I got is about the equivalent of a modern i3 CPU.  It ran NFL Blitz at about 95% when in medium res, and 100% at standard res. Of the machines I bought only 1 was actually for me and is the new Plex server in my house. I dont see any issue with running hyperspin, but I can put a DC emu on there this weekend and see what it does. Playstation emulation should be fine, the system is well over what is needed for that.

These results are based on the 1st run of desktops TK offered. My desktop version has 16 GB of RAM , and I removed the optical drive in favor of a second hard drive. Other than that, no extra hardware is installed
 
SuperNES : ZSNES ran every game at 100% StarFox, SFA2, SuperMario RPG , etc I was trying to test games with special chips.

Sega Genesis\CD: KGEN\Fusion ran every game at 100%  VectorMan, Virua Racing, Super SF2

Sega 32X\CD : KGEN\Fusion ran everything at 100%  Toughman Contest , Sonic CD, Supreme Warrior 32x

vivanonno : couldnt get it running

Model 2 : Ran Daytona, Sega Rally etc without any issue.

Model 3 : Super Model, couldn't get it to run

PSX: ePSXe ran everything 100% , from RidgeRacer and Gran Turismo to Grand Theft auto and SFAlpha 3

PS2 : PCSX2 : Did better than I thought!   MegaManX collection ran perfect, but 3D games like Vice City,  Soul Calibur 3, etc didnt run fast enough for my liking. Im sure with tweaks games could be made more playable, or by adding on a video card.

PSP: PPSSPP  Ran the games that do run, at 100% with no issue.

MAME: Did the standard test of Gauntlet Legends (90-95% medium res, 100% standard res) , NFL Blitz ran 99% at medium res, 100% at standard

PCE /PCE-CD : Magic Engine ran everything Blazing Lasers, Bonk, SFII, Rondo of Blood

Dreamcast : Demul  Ran Gauntlet Legends fine, no issues with 2D fighters like MvC2, CvS2, but 3D games like Dead or Alive and NHL2K had some slow down issues.

These results are based on the 1st run of desktops TK offered. My desktop version has 16 GB of RAM , and I removed the optical drive in favor of a second hard drive. Other than that, no extra hardware is installed
 
SuperNES : ZSNES ran every game at 100% StarFox, SFA2, SuperMario RPG , etc I was trying to test games with special chips.

Sega Genesis\CD: KGEN\Fusion ran every game at 100%  VectorMan, Virua Racing, Super SF2

Sega 32X\CD : KGEN\Fusion ran everything at 100%  Toughman Contest , Sonic CD, Supreme Warrior 32x

vivanonno : couldnt get it running

Model 2 : Ran Daytona, Sega Rally etc without any issue.

Model 3 : Super Model, couldn't get it to run

PSX: ePSXe ran everything 100% , from RidgeRacer and Gran Turismo to Grand Theft auto and SFAlpha 3

PS2 : PCSX2 : Did better than I thought!   MegaManX collection ran perfect, but 3D games like Vice City,  Soul Calibur 3, etc didnt run fast enough for my liking. Im sure with tweaks games could be made more playable, or by adding on a video card.

PSP: PPSSPP  Ran the games that do run, at 100% with no issue.

MAME: Did the standard test of Gauntlet Legends (90-95% medium res, 100% standard res) , NFL Blitz ran 99% at medium res, 100% at standard

PCE /PCE-CD : Magic Engine ran everything Blazing Lasers, Bonk, SFII, Rondo of Blood

Dreamcast : Demul  Ran Gauntlet Legends fine, no issues with 2D fighters like MvC2, CvS2, but 3D games like Dead or Alive and NHL2K had some slow down issues.


did not test anything that runs just peachy on much older hardware, like NES, SMS, gameboy, GBA, etc  The constant theme in testing is anything that doesnt need a lot of GPU runs awesome and anything that needs GPU doesnt run as great.  Didnt have time / energy to test anything else like Sega Saturn or 3DO, I dont have any saturn or 3DO emulators configured and didnt feel like learning how to set those up just for testing.   Hope this is helpful!

Thanks for your time Malenko!

Welp, the PC I got doesn't have a standard power supply, so it couldn't be easily upgraded. If you also get one that doesnt have the standard power supply, I'd suggest the best nVidia based card that doesnt require another power connector to the rear of the card (prolly 8XXX series GeForce or a 440GT). In all honesty if you plan to run more demanding emulators, Id suggest the "modder" PC as you can easily replace the existing power supply with something beefier that will support the power requirements of the video card. For the price its a pretty great little machine.

I've now bought 6 PCs in total with no issues. As for your quote from TK, the prices listed include shipping so unless youre outside the cont. US, just PM him with how many you want :)

Sorry for lack of updates - processed orders that came in and getting things ready for the arrival of baby #2, so it's been nuts around here.

Still taking orders but will notify everyone when the little money pit arrives, lol. Will take a couple week hiatus at that time, and will most likely return with a "Damn, babies are expensive" sale  :lol

I bought the I5 setup (he one below the portable one).. and I am overly surprised! It runs, Dreamcast, Naomi, Modeler, all retro consoles, PSX, Majority of mame including Carnevil, NFL Blitz, Cruisin USA full speed! Heck I even tried PS2 and Contra ran perfect!! I haven't tried any other PS2 games yet but the PS2 was very smooth!

I am very happy with my purchase and plan on buying a second one.  Anyone in Canada do not worry about shipping etc.. I received mine with only $40 duty/taxes extra. (that is very low)

Item is as described and beyond! Seller is fantastic and was very helpful to me! (even now after transaction is over!)

I will definitely buy from him again!

It is an incredible value.  The laptop is in very good shape with a few cosmetic scratched (that is totally normal) on the outside case.  The machine itself is clean and works perfectly.  Jump on these people...it's a good laptop.

If anyone is wanting to upgrade from the onboard graphics (some games play slow with the onboard on these pc's), here are a few options:

These should all run with the smaller power supplies in these computers and fit in the small form factor cases (basic or modder pc's listed by op):

Best two options:

Radeon R7 250:   http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J06F4HE/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=#Ask (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J06F4HE/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=#Ask)

Radeon 7750 : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008RLHFQ6/ref=pd_luc_rh_sbs_01_03_t_ttl_lh?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008RLHFQ6/ref=pd_luc_rh_sbs_01_03_t_ttl_lh?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Lesser options:

Radeon 6450 : http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Profile-PCI-Express-R6450-MD1GD3-LP/dp/B004X6ABTM/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1428262663&sr=1-2&keywords=radeon+6450+low+profile (http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Profile-PCI-Express-R6450-MD1GD3-LP/dp/B004X6ABTM/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1428262663&sr=1-2&keywords=radeon+6450+low+profile)

Radeon 5450 : http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-100292DDR3L/dp/B004N3BH0C/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1428262696&sr=1-3&keywords=radeon+5450+low+profile (http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-100292DDR3L/dp/B004N3BH0C/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1428262696&sr=1-3&keywords=radeon+5450+low+profile)

I bought one of the 5450's originally, and when overclocking it some, it was able to speed up games like street fighter 4, but I think I'm going to get one of the r7 250's since it seems the best price to performance card for these computers.   You just have to make sure you go into the bios first and change the video option from the onboard to pci-express, then install the card and software/driver.

If going the r7 250 route check Newegg instead of Amazon ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150713&cm_re=r7_250-_-14-150-713-_-Product (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150713&cm_re=r7_250-_-14-150-713-_-Product) ) here's a low profile r7 250 2GB Ram model for $72 shipped after $20 MIR ( $92 before Rebate) vs $110 1GB Ram model in amazon link !

Very odd.... I literally just bought one a little while ago on amazon, and it was $84-$10 rebate, so $74... now clicking on it, the price has went up.  Strange but yeah, if it's cheaper on newegg, buy it there.  haha

Yeah that's what I hate about Amazon -- they sometimes update prices several times a day if an item starts selling they increase the price based on popularity of the item sometimes even when you have the item in the cart it will change before you can check out.

I dunno if they've changed the algorithms but the best is private sellers through Amazon using bots to manipulate price.  I remember seeing some random no-name books that two bots got into a pissing match over that were listed for $100k, stuff like that.  I remember reading that Amazon actually tracks purchasing habits/history to the point that they will preemptively ship products to regional distribution centers because they know what you're going to buy before you buy it.

Them Amazon folks r smart! I feel like within 20 years we'll be telepathically linked to Amazon and if we think "dammit I'm out of hand sanitizer" there's going to be a huge cannon in Seattle that's already launching a case directly onto our front porch before we can blink.

I got my sapphire r7 250 video card in today and put it into one of the basic pc's from the OP, and man, what a difference.   the 5450 and 6450 were a step up from the onboard graphics, but once I installed the r7 250, I saw how much better the more graphic intensive games ran.   I played street fighter 4, and it was much faster than either the 5450 or 6450 before.

If you all are going to upgrade video cards, I would definitely go with either the 7750 or the r7 250 (I think they are fairly close, the r7 being cheaper though).   

The only issue I ran into was that the sapphire card had a micro hdmi port instead of a full size one.   It came with the adapter cable, but if not in just the right position, the video would cut out.   Not sure if it's the port itself not making good contact, or the adapter cable.   Either way, I would go with one that has a full size HDMI port on the card just to avoid that issue.   This visiontek one has a full size hdmi :
http://www.amazon.com/VisionTek-Products-Express-Graphics-900702/dp/B00JXQ0K70/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428609541&sr=8-1&keywords=visiontek+r7+250 (http://www.amazon.com/VisionTek-Products-Express-Graphics-900702/dp/B00JXQ0K70/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428609541&sr=8-1&keywords=visiontek+r7+250)

So far it looks to be the same price on amazon and newegg unless amazon jacks up the price.... currently it's $99.99

With the video card upgraded, these pc's, even the basic one, should be able to run most anything very well.    Very good deal on these pc's.... get one if you can.    Thanks to the OP for the deal on them!

If that's true, then I'm sure with the r7 250 video card, it will run it 100%.    I haven't tried that game, but I can try it this weekend and let ya know so the poor guy can stop asking.  haha

Let me type slowly so you can understand.  You tested it and confirmed it was almost good enough. 

This guy splashed out some cash on a video card and we're gonna see if these systems have upgraded from worthless to something to consider.

They weren't worthless previously.   They have been a very good deal throughout, even if someone just wanted a basic internet browsing pc.    As a gaming system, it depends on what all games you like to play.    Saying it the way you did is disrespectful to the OP who is giving us an excellent deal on these pc's.   

As I mentioned though, it's a huge upgrade with this video card, and if previously reported posts stated GL ran well on medium on the onboard video, I can't imagine it wouldn't run flawlessly with this card.    I will check the game out that you are dying to know about though so you can have peace of mind.

Let me type slowly so you can understand.  You tested it and confirmed it was almost good enough. 

This guy splashed out some cash on a video card and we're gonna see if these systems have upgraded from worthless to something to consider.

No see, I got an actual Gauntlet Legends PCB as part of a package deal, I got it specifically to sell to PBJ for what I paid for it. He didn't want it, I sold it for profit so it was no big deal. But that's when I stopped really caring about getting him the game or a system to run it. I only ran GL on the previous system so others could see and maybe a little to try and motivate Jim to buy one.

If he loved the game that much he'd have bought the PCB, or burned/bought the Dreamcast version, XBOX version, PS2 version, or play the MAME Rom in standard res.

That being said, TK, I just paypalled you for 4 more systems.  :cheers:

He left out the part where he did all that without asking me if I was interested first.  I'm happy it worked out in the end, though. 

Dreamcast version is wonky.  Xbox version is Dark Legacy, though I have a custom set of secondary mapping on a Kade to play the Xbox version with six buttons and a joystick.  Admittedly I have not tried the PS2 version.  I purchased a N64 specifically to play this game in the 90s, but that system is long gone and I've yet to encounter an N64 emulator that plays anything properly.

Frankly, I'm excited we're finally on the cusp of cheap computers being able to run this ROM.  I have been waiting YEARS for this.

Well, I never said you were interested in it before I bought it. I bought it as part of a package and thought I'd hook you up. It was a risk free investment because if you didn't want it, I knew I wouldn't have a problem selling it. You said you didn't want it, and it sold less than 24 hours later. My point was you didn't want the actual arcade PCB , not the risk on buying one for you.

as for XBOX , Dark Legacy > Seven Sorrows

I have a spare N64 I can send ya, it lacks a controller and a video cable though (can use a SNES  or GC one)

EDIT: it also appears GL came out on PSX,  and PSX emulation is pretty much perfect. Go for that one

Played the mame version of Gauntlet Legends, not sure if that's the version you were inquiring about, but it ran with no issues.   Didn't see a setting to change the game quality (high, medium, etc)... but whatever it was, it ran it no problem, no slowdowns or anything.   I also played it as 2 players to see if it would cause it to slow at all, and it was all good.

A really brutal test on that game is just to make it through character selection and start in the mountain kingdom.

Malenko's got jokes but I've tested this game on a Core 2 Duo 3.16 GHz, I5 3.10 GHz, and I5 3.33 GHz and found the performance to be unacceptable.

No jokes or wit, I tested the system he's selling (the model  660 Ė 3.33 GHz ) and got through the select screen and a bit of the first level (playing on a keyboard sucks) ran between 93% and 100% you said it wasnt good enough.  I ordered up 4 of the modder systems, and I'll test it again with the model 2500 see if it makes a difference.

ok, had to configure the fps for f11 in my mame setup menu, then got it to display... but yeah, it won't work for pbj then, because it dips down to 80%-90% on the mountain.   The game plays fine, no lags or issues, but if it's perfection he's seeking, he needs to look for something other than a budget pc build.

Ok, so new day, new test.....

I have one of the modder pc's that I just got in last week from the OP and I got in the visontek r7 250 card yesterday (have a sapphire one in the basic pc), so installed that card in the modder pc and checked gauntlet legends again.   Very short dip at the selection page, less than a second it dipped to like 75%-80%, then right back up to 100%... then on the game play, 100% the entire time on the mountain, at times going to 105%.    Also noticed the cpu usage was lower on the modder pc (about 25% lower).    This is all with zero overclocking set on the video card, just the factory settings (same as the basic pc test earlier).

So looks like the modder pc was solid with the r7 250 card.

Want to thank everyone again for their continued support. Between the newborn, craziness at work, and just overall lack of rest/sleep, been trying to be as quick as I can in getting questions answered and parts out the door in a timely manner. Your patience is greatly appreciated.  :cheers:

Very little time lately to spend in the forums so again, please PM me any inquiries / order requests. Since I'll get e-mailed about those, rather then waiting on a time to check the thread.

HUGE props to those doing their testing and posting the results in the thread. Was hoping to have some details myself when looking at my projects. But anyone who's gone through the baby drill while in this hobby knows my projects are shelved until this little guy is less of a handfull.

Anyone still on the fence about a portable reach out. I have a surplus of these and would be willing to work with you if a little discount or added accessories can help getting these out of my way in storage.

As always, if interested in a trade for any arcade related goods, let me know what you are looking for vs what you are offering.

Set up:
Modder with 16 GB RAM
Win 7 Pro 64 Bit
MAME .148 64 bit
Nothing else running in the background

ROCK SOLID 100% frame rate, never dropped, not even once.

I've got a PM in to TKW already, but maybe someone can answer this faster: I know they come with Win7 pre-installed, but do the Modder systems come with a valid Win product key, or an OEM key sticker on the case?  He doesn't mention in the original post.

I've been saying it for some time that the i5-2500 (I have the K variant, but I'm running it stock) can handle anything that's currently capable of running at 100% in Mame.  The only area where it will choke is when you try to run multi-monitor games (Punch-Out, Ninja Warriors, etc.) with HLSL enabled.  Add a capable discreet GPU and that solves that problem.

This offer is worth it for the CPU alone, frankly.

I had GL running on an i5 3570 at %100 and %120 a few times. that CPU is just a tic faster than the modder PC you are all testing.

unfortunately it was a work PC so I couldn't take it home & the damn things cost so much.
These deals are great & since I plan to use a big 'ole CRT TV with component in i just need a pcie card with TV out and won't have to worry about scaling anything.

Yup - responded via PM about the OEM stickers: Unless I otherwise tell anyone ordering  -  the OEM sticker on the case is the code I use when activating / updating / testing the machine. Most had a corporate client previously, so the stickers were never used. I'll provide an alternate if I had to use one, but it will still be an OEM code, single license to that machine.

I recommend Belarc Advisor for a program to pull any current info on a machine as discussed above. It's great for pulling all your current licenses, not just Microsoft's.

Got my gear the other day, haven't had a chance to put the desktops through the paces yet but typing this up from my Portable.  Really diggin' it, nice and snappy, clean, everything works nice, so assuming it doesn't spontaneously combust in the next hour or two, it's a fantastic deal.  It's becoming a general use work/school box so I don't have any fun stuff to test out, but I guess I have a moral obligation to benchmark GL on it now so we'll see :)  I dunno how many people are looking for these things for projects/builds, but def thumbs up for the unit at the price.

Just wanted to thank all you guys posting reviews of this MODDER PC. It really made me feel confident on pulling the trigger, so you are really helping out the OP and potential buyers.

Can't wait to get mine in on monday. I had a couple questions if anyone is willing to help me out.

1- Can this run tekken tag? I would assume an r7 250 GPU would help with this, but i am new to MAME and was not sure

2- Would i need to up the PSU for that? And what Watt PSU comes with the modder?

3- Would i be able to run HLSL? And would i need a GPU for that. Again i assume it would definitely help.

4- And what version of MAME should i be using? The latest version .160?


My goals are to play mostly 2d games.
MK 1,2,3 
SF 2 and third strike
2d beat em ups
Tekken 1,2,3 and tag
80's classics
And Blitz and MK4 would be a bonus.

Thanks again guys, really appreciate it

Joe

1. Yeah, you should have no problem running TTT, but you should understand that Mame only uses GPU for HLSL at this point. Everything else is on the CPU, which is why the 2500, with it's high IPC and multiple cores (yes, Mame does use multiple cores now with certain drivers...) is a great choice for Mame.

2. No idea yet as to what comes with the Modder, haven't rec'd mine yet. PSU requirements will of course vary based on your GPU, and I'm not familiar with the AMD options. Sorry!

3. For the vast majority of games, you should be able to run with HLSL no problem, even with just the onboard GPU of the 2500. (EDIT - I forgot to mention: you will likely need to fiddle with the various features within HLSL. Bloom effects will bog down this iGPU. I always forget I've turned that option off...)  That said, you will likely only run into significant issues when running multi-monitor games (Punch-Out, Ninja Warriors, etc.) while also having HLSL enabled (again, that's only if you're using the onboard graphics. Put a discreet GPU in there and HLSL isn't a problem.)

4. Personally, I'm at .155 because it's pretty stable and they haven't added anything tremendously exciting since then. Raiden II becoming playable was the most recent "big addition."

You should be well served with the Modder, based on the games you listed.

Thanks a bunch man, i appreciate the answers!

I definitely will pop an r7 250 in there at some point then, at 60-70 bucks seems to be worth it. Hopefully the PSU it comes with can handle it, i don't see why not. I would think even 300W PSU could handle this system.

Looks like as long as you've got 300-350watts, you're probably fine. It's not like you're ever going to peg out both the CPU and GPU at the same time if all you're doing with the system is Mame. YMMV.

As I mentioned earlier in this thread, and in pm, that video card will work fine in these pc's.   Myself and several friends have the r7 250 installed already and it works fine.   Feel free to ask again if it will work though.   The guys will start lumping you in with PBJ asking about Gauntlet Legends.  haha

The power supplies in these are not that high and those cards still work fine.   the 5450, 6450, r7 250, etc all work fine with power supplies lower than what the required listing for them is.

As I mentioned earlier, the 5450 and 6450 are slightly better than the onboard video, especially on the basic pc's with the slower cpu, but those two didn't run street fighter 4 at full speed.  The r7 250 did.   I wouldn't go any lower than that card if you're going to upgrade.   the 7750 should work fine as well, but is more expensive.

Dude, i made ONE post asking a few questions that i didn't PM you about and didn't see in the thread already. Which seemed to annoy you judging by your passive aggressive attitude and jab even though i was extremely polite with you. maybe i am reading to much into it, but since i am new here i don't know members personalities yet, so it's hard to tell whose serious and whose not. 

Also i am reading everywhere that the recommended PSU is 300-350 for this GPU and you are saying it's okay to use less than that. I hope you can understand why i would want to double check with a second opinion on that one.

Thanks a bunch man, i appreciate the answers!

I definitely will pop an r7 250 in there at some point then, at 60-70 bucks seems to be worth it. Hopefully the PSU it comes with can handle it, i don't see why not. I would think even 300W PSU could handle this system.

As I mentioned earlier in this thread, and in pm, that video card will work fine in these pc's.   Myself and several friends have the r7 250 installed already and it works fine.   Feel free to ask again if it will work though.   The guys will start lumping you in with PBJ asking about Gauntlet Legends.  haha

Dude, i made ONE post asking a few questions that i didn't PM you about and didn't see in the thread already. Which seemed to annoy you judging by your passive aggressive attitude and jab even though i was extremely polite with you. maybe i am reading to much into it, but since i am new here i don't know members personalities yet, so it's hard to tell whose serious and whose not. 

Also i am reading everywhere that the recommended PSU is 300-350 for this GPU and you are saying it's okay to use less than that. I hope you can understand why i would want to double check with a second opinion on that one.

Yeah you're reading too much into it.   I was responding to you and joking with you about lumping you in with pbj, that's why I put the "haha" after it, to let you know it was a joke.

I know you're reading everywhere what the "recommended"  psu is for these cards.....read the reviews on them on amazon and newegg.  They work with psu's lower than that.   I bought them based on those reviews from other people, and from what I've seen, all those people were correct... they work fine with a power supply lower than the recommended.   They don't draw much power, which makes them perfect.   Small form factor cards that will run on these small power supplies.   

But what does my passive aggressive self know... haha   (this is a joke too, so don't get all worked up)

Can't wait to get mine in on monday. I had a couple questions if anyone is willing to help me out.

1- Can this run tekken tag? I would assume an r7 250 GPU would help with this, but i am new to MAME and was not sure

My goals are to play mostly 2d games.
MK 1,2,3 
SF 2 and third strike
2d beat em ups
Tekken 1,2,3 and tag
80's classics
And Blitz and MK4 would be a bonus.

Thanks again guys, really appreciate it

Joe

In a few days I'll be able to answer these even better when I finally find some time to get my modder set up (and other smarter people than me can already probably answer better) but with the exception of Blitz/MK4 and the HLSL issue, that list was pretty much 100% on my old first-gen core i3, integrated graphics POS budget laptop on 1.51.  (I played a LOT of TTT on that thing.)  The modder should handle that stuff like a champ, afaik.

You are reading too much into it.

The modders come with a 240W power supply. If you want to replace the power supply in it with a standard ATX one, you'll have to put the guts in a new case. Same thing goes if you want to put a full sized PCIe card in there. You either have to mode the case or get a 1/2 height card.

Hey folks with the Modder systems, just out of curiousity: what speed is the RAM onboard? DDR3-1066? 1333? Can't imagine it'd be 1600. 

Hopefully TK gets my set shipped today. Looking forward to this!  ;D

Same here man! Can't wait to get everything installed and programmed and test a few games out. Not coming until monday though! :(

I decided i will add a gpu after i at least try it out as is. Might not need it.

My Modder systems arrived this afternoon, earlier than I expected. TK had said he'd get them shipped by Friday at the latest - he didn't even get a chance to send me tracking info. 

I won't get a chance to play with them until I'm back in town on the 30th, but so far this process has been an absolute pleasure.

Got my modder yesterday! Got everything all installed and set up and i was highly impressed.

It came in it's factory box, with a mouse and keyboard that were virtually brand new, as well as a brand new ethernet cable. Mine happened to be lenovo M series.

The PC itself looks great, minor scuffs and stuff but nothing crazy. It booted right up and has been able to play every rom i have thrown at it so far, the most intense being tekken tag. Will test others soon.

Extremely happy and for 125 shipped YOU CAN'T beat this deal. The CPU alone goes for that much. If you were hesitating, DON'T. Just buy one, you will not regret it.

Thanks TKwarrior

So after finally getting around to setting HLSL, the modder lags like crazy. I expected this though.

Do you guys know if a GPU would fix this? i was going to buy the R7 250. i assume it will run HLSL full speed since HLSL runs solely off the GPU.

yeah, the GPU on board is great for MAME since the CPU does all the work. the r7 250 should be fine for HLSL but thats just a theoretical reply, I dont have the card to test it.

Thanks man. I would like to get the 6450 if possible as the r7 250 is $90 and the 6450 is only $35.

Does anyone know if the 6450 performs well with HLSL with 90's games like MK, SF2, double dragon, etc. ? Just trying to save some money if i can, i did some google searches but not much is coming up. I just need it for basic HLSL, all my other games play fine off the I5, just when HLSL is on it lags like crazy.

Will not be playing any newer games or any emulators besides MAME

Thanks again

If it helps I can run most non 3d games with Timothy Lotte's CRT shader on radeon 4650 and 3ghz celeron d on 64 bit Linux at 1280x1024 on Mame .157.
When I tried a game like Jojo's venture I was only getting about 80% speed with glsl turned on but all the classics are 100%.
I don't know how that translates into windows though the newest Mame uses glsl now.

I just ordered my modder.
I suspect it will be twice as fast as my current daily driver system which is an a10 amd setup.
Which is fine.
Its fast enough for my daily work and I don't want to play legends and golden t at my computer desk anyways.

I tested 3 cards on Street Fighter 4:

5450 - a slight improvement over the onboard graphics - Character movements still pretty slow in fighting sequences with all graphic options on.
6450 - an improvment over the 5450 - About 50% faster in fighting sequences, but still slower than it should be with all graphic options on
r7 250 - A big improvement - all fighting sequences were 100% full speed even with all graphics enabled.

Now granted, those tests were with the basic pc, not the modder (maybe the modder will run that 6450 better than the basic did).   Once I went through the testing on those cards when I bought modder pc's, I just went with the r7 250, and that's why I have told anyone who has asked to go with the r7 250, it's a better value than the 7750, and ran everything 100% so far that I have tried with no lagging.

My buddy's basic pc, I initially installed a 6450 for him, then told him to come over and try out the r7 250 when I got it in... his reaction was "Oh man, yeah... now this is what I'm talking about, now it's running perfectly."

Damm that's nice of you. Well it will be here today so i can hopefully can find out by tonight.

Also if it didn't work it, i wouldn't feel right selling it for 35, i think 25 is fair. It's a 1gb MSI low profile. Hopefully it works though :p i don't want to spend $90 on a GPU right now lol 

There is just surprisingly little information on what GPU's work well with HLSL, and the info that can be found is always on the same 2 graphics cards. the 750 ti and i forgot the other.

See this is where i get a little confused in how that information translates to how well the card will process HLSL for 90's MAME games. I would imagine if the 6450 could almost run SF4 it should be able to run HLSL on basic games. BUt i honestly am not sure.

Yeah the r7 250 seems great, i just didn't have the $90 to spend on it right now. And if it's overkill for what i wanted and the 6450 would work i would have rather spent the 35. I guess i shall find out.

The only other game I was trying at the time was NBA Jam TE in MAME, and it ran a bit slow on the 6450.   Get one of the 6450's and give it a try.   It may work better on the modder pc than the basic.  You have an offer to get rid of it if it doesn't work for you, so you're out no money... can't beat that.

Was HLSL enabled? Because I can run NBA JAM with HLSL off at full speed using just the onboard graphics. Just was curious.

I can also run blitz full speed, it's amazing how fast this little computer is for 125 bucks.

Yeah fortunately i am not stuck with it. Knowing amazon i could probably even return it, but i'd rather it go to Malenko if he actually needs it.

But docholiday said he wasn't using hlsl when he tried those different video cards yet somehow he saw a speed increase with a faster video card?

The only other game I was trying at the time was NBA Jam TE in MAME, and it ran a bit slow on the 6450.   Get one of the 6450's and give it a try.   It may work better on the modder pc than the basic.  You have an offer to get rid of it if it doesn't work for you, so you're out no money... can't beat that.

You can run JAM on an old P4 , I find it very unlikely NBA Jam TE ran less than 100% with any video card. I have one of the original basic systems and it ran Jam TE 100% and ran Gauntlet Legends at about 85%, or if I put the game in standard res, 100%.

Correct.
But docholiday said he wasn't using hlsl when he tried those different video cards yet somehow he saw a speed increase with a faster video card?
That's where I'm confused.

Well most of that testing was done on Street Fighter 4... the only MAME one I played at that time was NBA Jam TE, and it had some lagging for me... unless hyperspin or mame had some other issue that was causing it to slow, it very clearly was compared to the many other times I have played it on my main arcade system.

Well just wanted to update. I got HLSL working full speed now. I thought it was lagging in Street fighter 2 CE when i threw a Hadouken with RYU, but after looking up videos thats just how the game is. I never remember it being that laggy. It also says 100% speed and 0/10 frameskip for every game i tossed at it.

I got an PNY GT 730 1Gb because i hate AMD cards. It was 55, 65 before rebates.

It's not as powerful as the R7 250, but is on par or better than the R7 240.


Just wanted to update for anyone interested in just upping the GPU for HLSL or other light graphics needs and don't want to spend 80+ on a card.

MODDER PC running Hyperspin and Mame with HLSL enabled.

Runs fantastic. Get one of these PC's if you can. HLSL looks so nice.

Is there a better power supply that can be put directly into the modder system without a new case?

I threw in my old video card which seems to work fine but I didn't even realize that it requires 300w.  I have a newer card that also requires 300w but I'm not sure if it's worth trying on the 240w supply. I have a power supply that will fit in the case, but the main connection for the motherboard is larger than what's on the modder board.

the modder motherboard takes a standard ATX connection and the 4 pin extra connection.

The modder I got takes a 14 pin connection. My motherboard takes the connector on the right:

(https://www.adventuresindiy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/24-pin-standard-next-to-14-pin-power.jpg)

I see they make a 24 pin to 14 pin adapter.  I might have to get one of those.

I'll take a picture later but yes, it is a modder machine. I'm pretty sure it is different though because the chip is not a 2500.  It's  something more like a 3500.

Finally getting around to testing these guys (I bought 4 Modders) and I'm definitely happy with them for MAME purposes.  All i5-2500 cpus, but I also noticed they're all 8GB of RAM, which I appreciate, but didn't pay for! Uh... thanks for the free upgrade, TKW?  ;D

I didn't know until this morning, when I started tinkering, that the base i5-2500 only has "HD 2000" graphics on-board (the 2500K that I've been running for years has HD 3000).  I was having trouble running blitz, ttt, gauntleg, etc. at 100%, with HLSL, at the native 1280x1024 resolution of my Dell 1908fp monitor...

Fortunately, the quick and easy solution was to run at lower desktop resolution (1024x768) At that point the i5-2500 is definitely able to keep up 100% speed, with the tougher single-monitor games with HLSL running, and the games look fantastic. I imagine it'll still choke on multi-monitor games, but I haven't played with that yet.

In other news, we just put down a deposit on a new rental in Harrison, NJ! No more living in Manhattan! No more alleyway builds! I will have SPAAAAACE! Many projects already in the queue, if the 4 Modders didn't already give that away...

Damm you are lucky. One guy gets a 3500 CPU and you get 4GB of extra ram, i am jealous! lol

I have been waiting for days after sending TKwarrior payment for an extra 4gb Ram stick for a response. Honestly not even sure it will do anything at this point. Just figured for how cheap it is, could be good to have. Hopefully he gets around to answering his emails and sends that bad boy out.

Yeah, his communication isn't the absolute best, but I cut him some slack since he's definitely delivered for everyone who has ordered up to this point. The new baby thing probably accounts for a lot of that.

There are worse "retail" vendors out there (Divemaster, for example, is just really, really bad at communicating quickly, but that said, he has never, ever failed me) and TKW is doing this just for BYOAC, as I understood it.

I think, personally, I've been really spoiled by Newegg (and to a lesser extent, Amazon) delivery speed - huge companies with huge distribution chains - so I give our "local" guys the benefit of the doubt!  ;D

So I bought this video card for the modder system and can't get it to work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150713 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150713). I went into the bios and changed the video to auto which is supposed to boot video from pci-e first. Then I put the video card in. But when I put the video card in and turn on the computer, I get no video even before windows boots (i.e. bios startup) and the keyboard and mouse don't seem to be detected. I take the video card out and everything boots fine with the video connected to the onboard again. Any ideas why it is doing this and is there a solution that anyone knows about? I have tried it with the bios set to both auto and pge (which is the pci-e setting) and get the same results.

No. I bought a 500 watt power supply. This one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H33SFJU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H33SFJU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

I should note, all fans come on when I boot with the video card in it including the fan on the video card itself. There are no system error beeps. I also tried updating the system bios to see if that helped. Still no video or peripherals working when video card is connected.

Edit: So I tested the video card in another machine and it was doing the same thing. I guess it's bad since it didn't work in two machines. I'll try to exchange at new egg.

This.
but i'm glad i'm not the only one.
I somehow over paid him $20 \fail_math :) and when he told me and asked if I wanted a refund or more ram I asked how much to ship a monitor to me & I got no response.
Thought I insulted him or he thought I was trying to get a dirt cheap monitor or something.
I also said he could just refund me but still haven't gotten a response.
ill just wait.
It's only $20.

anyway I got to test Gauntlet legends on mine and very happy.
I also picked up low profile gforce 9400 and a component dongle for testing a 20" CRT TV I have with component out
looks damn good.
I plan to use this PC/video card on a 32" 4:3 CRT with component in that I have for a 4 player pedestal so I don't need the shader but can test it on this cheapo card if anyone is interested.
HLSL or GLSL with latest mame.

In all seriousness, I normally stay off the forum because if I let my eyes wander, my productivity it shot for half the day. I've already seen a few projects mirror my own ideas from the past year or so, and I get depressed not being able to work on them for a while yet. Plus I get notifications when I get PMs and they are more secure.

I was inundated by questions via PM and was trying to reply when I could. The last week has been insane, so I have already replied to everyone I thought was pending correspondence this evening. If you didn't get a PM from me reach out so I can take care of you.

Just to re-iterate, I'm NOT a 'retail' seller here. This was a side way to help the community and help with the insanity costs of getting a new home and baby. My prices are low since it's more paying for my time than anything else, which unfortunately is in short supply as of late. I had to reduce to doing shipments once a week since getting these cleaned/ prepped/ shipped can just wear on me if I try to devote time to this every day.

I greatly appreciate everyone's patience. Thankfully I try not to arrange any payments until I have the equipment ready to ship. Just please keep in mind that until things calm down (at work and home) I'll be going on a once a week shipping plan and will do my best to stay on top of PMs going forward.

Feel free to thank whoever switched it for me! I got the adapter last night and it works like a charm with my 400w supply and better video card. The extra ten bucks for the adapter was worth it for a better processor.  Not sure if there's much difference in MAME. Gauntlet Legends seems like it runs exactly as others have reported though I haven't tried with my newly installed video card (if that even makes a difference). I'm not sure what the other games are that people use to test the performance in MAME. The usual suspects like Cruis'n, Ridge Racer and San Francisco Rush work perfectly.

Mine was an M91 i believe.

Also just wanted to publicly thank TKwarrior. I ordered 4gb of ram from him for $15, and not only was the ram brand new, but he included an extra 4gb of ram for free because i am assuming he felt bad it took him a few days longer to ship.

Just wanted to say thank you, that was incredibly nice of you.

I bought the 1gb GT 730 because i like nvidia. But there is a better AMD card that will work  AMD R7 250 low profile. Its more expensive though.

I put a Zotac Geforce GT 610 2GB Synergy Edition in mine:

It's low profile but I had to put a 400w power supply in that fit right into the case.

So I bought this video card for the modder system and can't get it to work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150713 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150713). I went into the bios and changed the video to auto which is supposed to boot video from pci-e first. Then I put the video card in. But when I put the video card in and turn on the computer, I get no video even before windows boots (i.e. bios startup) and the keyboard and mouse don't seem to be detected. I take the video card out and everything boots fine with the video connected to the onboard again. Any ideas why it is doing this and is there a solution that anyone knows about? I have tried it with the bios set to both auto and pge (which is the pci-e setting) and get the same results.

Are you using the power supply it came with?  The Newegg page says it requires 400w minimum.

No. I bought a 500 watt power supply. This one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H33SFJU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H33SFJU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

I should note, all fans come on when I boot with the video card in it including the fan on the video card itself. There are no system error beeps. I also tried updating the system bios to see if that helped. Still no video or peripherals working when video card is connected.

Edit: So I tested the video card in another machine and it was doing the same thing. I guess it's bad since it didn't work in two machines. I'll try to exchange at new egg.

Update, finally got a replacement card and it's doing the same exact thing. First card was from New Egg. I sent it back for a refund and bought it on Amazon, so it's not like a bad batch or anything. Any idea why I would be having this problem? Is there a driver I need to install to use the pcie port or something?

I tested in my main machine, which is a different machine than the other machine I tested in on the last card, and I got a picture, so the card works. Next, I disconnected my large power supply from my main computer and hooked it up to the machine I'm trying to use the card in and got the same results as before, so it's not a power supply issue. I made sure the video in the bios was set to pce which is what it said pci-e should be. So, I guess I've narrowed it down to the board not functioning correctly or the card is incompatible. Which would seem odd because the card was recommended by others in this thread. Don't think the board is malfunctioning because that first card didn't work in that other machine either. Any suggestions? Why would the card be incompatible if that is the case? It's pci-e 3.0, but I've read that cards are backwards compatible with older pci-e slots, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Are you positive the AMD card works? I'd like to get confirmation from someone that it's compatible. Otherwise I'll try to return it and buy a different one.

Edit: Decided I'm going with a different one. Can't get it to work for anything. Anyone looking, I'd recommend avoiding the R7-250A-CLF4 for this computer.

New card came in today. I put it in the computer and it fired right up. So, I'd say definitely avoid the R7-250A-CLF4 for this computer. It must not be compatible with the computer.

I've been playing Fore for the past few weeks on the modder (first time I compiled my own MAME because I couldn't wait for this game!).  As we've discovered, my modder is actually slightly faster than everyone elses but I think they'll all play it just fine.  One important note: the game will struggle pretty often on the default settings.  Change the dipswitch to low resolution and it should run near 100% at all times.  You'll get an occasional audio hiccup here and there especially if you end up in the woods, but it's very playable.

If you're looking to get all the courses, just get the first game and Golden Tee Fore Complete.  Complete has everything except two 9 hole courses from the first game (Royal Bannockburn and Rolling Acres).  Those are the only 2 games I test on the Modder but I assume they all work fine.

Another tip, make sure you press T to go into test mode after it boots up to adjust the sound.  It defaults at basically 0. I also cleared out all the records and leaderboards since some of the computer scores are almost impossible to beat.

I've tried a few but the performance really depends on the game.  Mario Galaxy runs.....OK but can be sluggish at times. Not really good enough for me to play through. I'll have to stick with the SD version on Wii for now.  Mid-range games run pretty well for the most part. The Wiiware Target Toss Pro games worked perfectly for me on 1080P.

Someone is using a GTX 730 but I need to get the GDDR version otherwise the 720 appears to be faster.
730 gddr is about $80 while 720 is $60.
not sure i'll get that much of a performance increase since performance is the wrong term to use when referencing these low power cards. :)

I should be fine.
I just checked & the old 9400 GT I have installed now is a 50W part and it boots up just fine.
The 730 is a 25W part.

I'll run some actual games though  on the 9400 first to make sure.
If it handles them without a crash i'll grab the 730.

Major Update:

Finally had the chance to post again. On top of everything else, was out sick for a bit and then had to travel for work. Actually starting a new position in my 9-5 thatís effecting the thread here (hence the post). It will require my main focus, and will be taking my attention from any side work/ contracts/ e-waste recycling help.

-   What will this mean for equipment you were selling?

Iím glad you asked ;D . I donít foresee myself in the new gig continuing any side work that allowed me bringing these to the BYOAC community. So what I have now will be the last of any stock available.

-   Whatís left?!?!?

So I still have desktops (more basics then modders), and portable units. No more LCDs, what 19Ē LCDs I have left is reserved for Rick (PM incoming Rick).

Since I wonít have a need to hold stock of extra memory beside my own needs, Iím making changes in specs. Hence, Iím also updating pricing due to the new specs / stock availability / increased costs on my end. Still trying to offer these as cheaply as possible for the forum while keeping it fair for my time involved in getting these out.

Basic/Modder: all remaining desktops I sell will be upgraded to 8GB installed. Only option for upgrades Iím making available will be for the Modder to 16GB total (while supplies last).
Basic 8GB - $110 shipping included.
Modder 8GB - $150 shipping included. Upgrade to 16GB adds $30.


Portable: all units will have 4GB standard instead of the previous 2GB. Upgrade to 8GB is available until my spare memory stock runs out.
Portable 4GB Ė still $150 shipping included. Upgrade to 8GB adds $30.

So not that bad when doing the math, about +10% on some items or less when comparing like for like memory sizes from before. Iíll hold these prices for as long as I can, hopefully until these sell out.

All previous mentioned accessories will still be packed in until stock runs out or packaging needs are adjusted. Iíll make any adjustments to pricing again at that time if needed. As always, any PM orders will be grandfathered in before any changes are made public (last couple PCs actually shipped with 8GB despite lower spec ordered already  :cheers:).

So TLDR: New job, not refurbing equipment anymore, get them while I have em!

ROFL, then the prices on my remaining stock would go WAY up, as I would be out a job!  :lol

Nah, really trying to get a better home/work life balance thing going, so cutting out my side work that allowed me bringing in these refurbs. New gig will be partially work from home eventually, so that will help too.

Answered him a while back via PM, but for FYI - all desktops use mATX style boards, but ONLY the Modder is easily transferred to another ATX standard case, if that is your intention.

Man when it rains....

So due to a unforeseen medical bill for the wife, I'm looking to offload some portables so our home budget doesn't get pimp-smaked. :hissy

For the rest of July (we'll see if I continue this after depending on response) I'm lowering portables to $100 shipped.

That's a business grade i5 laptop with 4GB ram and windows 7 professional pre-loaded and activated.

Some here already bought some and can attest to the experience. I know it's not as popular as the desktops for any builds, but most out there should know someone that could use a cheap good laptop.

As always, greatly appreciate the support and will continue to offer any deals while I have the stock.

No, the portable only takes a max of 8GB. Not a limitation of what parts I have left, but a limitation of the laptop itself.

The Modders are the best desktops I have left. That one with the 3000 series chip was a fluke mistake on my end that was an unintended 'free upgrade'.

Will PM you details on 3 portables.

As of today I no longer have any higher capacity So-Dimms for the portables. In plain English that means the only option for portables is 4GB, not 8GB. Will update the main post to reflect this. They are still, however, $100 including shipping.

Thanks for the help.

The AVGA should fit in the modder case if you drop the second dsub connection, maybe ask if they have a low profile bracket.  I didnt see power requirements for the card but since it doesnt have external power connections on it you should be ok.

If youre moving the guts of a modder into another case you should be fine, but if youre doing that you should upgrade the power supply anyway.

I just received my new SSD drive 256 GB. If I want to install do I need to just get a SATA 3 cable and a Power cable to go to the power supply? Is there room on the power supply for three drives? Thanks

Why do I feel like the FAQ guy for these?

There are 4 SATA ports, 2 are 6.0 Gb 1 is 3.0Gb and the last one is an eSATA port.  The power supply that comes with the PC only has 2 sata power connectors, the ATX connector, and the 4 pin mobo connector. The Power supply that comes with it is also an 85% 285W PS.

they have SATA power splitters but there isnt much room in the case.  If you dont plan to run the regular HD and the SSD, just disconnect the DVD drive and clone the HD to SSD then replace the HD with the SSD. Or you can be like me and just remove the DVD drive to plug in the second hard drive/SSD

Going to continue the cheap portables through August, so still just $100 for a decent laptop. I only ask that anyone doing these use the gift option in paypal, as the fees already eat into what little profit is made from these.

The modder is a great deal. It can play Ultra street fighter 4 on the lowest settings at 60 fps, and it plays model 2 games and almost every mame game at 100%. It struggles with the playstation 2 emulator(it gets about 45-55 fps on Tekken 5) , but if you get a cheap video card you should be able to play most ps2 games at 60fps.

Not one for bumps but.....  :bump

Anyone on the fence about trying out Windows 10? These cheap desktops/laptops are eligible for the free upgrade.

So... you can download Windows 10 and tinker on a spare machine. Just go HERE (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10) and you won't have to wait.

I've been using it on my main laptop for awhile without any issues. My desktop had some hiccups, but it had some uncommon Hardware/Software (it's not one of these SFFs on the thread, it's an older machine).

and it has an odd shaped power supply but with a standard ATX connector. so if you up the power supply you'll need to upgrade the case. If you upgrade the case you are no longer limited to a 1/2 height video card.

For those looking for a graphics card for the modder, I picked up a GeForce 750ti low profile last week and it has been working awesome. I've been playing some 1080p Skyward Sword with the dolphin emulator and it looks amazing. Even though it has a higher recommended minimum psu, it has been running smooth.

You'll probably be fine without it, but I have not tried any Daphne games so far with mine.

I wanted to run MAME with HLSL on, but had a few issues with lag. I also wanted to run the Dolphin emulator, which worked, but the framerate was terrible. After the gfx card upgrade, everything seems to be running great. I did have a bit of framerate stutter w/ Naomi, but I haven't tweaked the settings much on that yet.

If it is Lenovo, i'll take one!

Thanks.

I was away on some training recently, but did my best to answer any PMs while I was away. If you PM'ed me and didn't hear back please let me know.

Yes, Portables are still available and I'm still keeping them at $100 for as long as I can.

Modders and Basics are also still available.

I'll keep the main post updated if/when anything changes.

Curious, anyone done any testing of GT Fore Complete with Windows 7 vs Windows 10..  On Medium Rez I get 96.5% on Low Rez I get 99.91%..  Just curious.

was this in the Modder or is it a half height card ????  --- the Basic is in a small form factor case so requires a half height card if you plan on keeping the MOBO inside the case - Also the laptop of course is not upgradeable like most laptops - so Saying Any PCI-e Card will work just fine is a bit misleading depending on the type of system he purchased !

As mentioned above the modder will work with pretty much any PCI-e slot card (Might also require a PSU upgrade if high powered) - the Basic is in a small case so you would need to either remove it from the case or move it to a new case to use anything other than a half height card - and the laptops are like most laptops not upgradeable.

Just a bump/update:

Yes, all options in the main post are still available. I try to get any orders from the forum out at least once a week. Unfortunately, a recent health scare from my wife (better now, thank God) and my printer dying delayed me getting orders out, but will be sending any pending out tomorrow.

Another satisfied customer right here..

I took the MODDER option with 16 gigs of ram.

What I got was a Lenovo M91P.

Looked like this:

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/phreakwars/before_zpsylu3c8ss.jpg)

Tore it apart, put it in a new case with a GTX 960, new power supply, and a Samsung 850 EVO SSD drive.

It now looks like this:

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/phreakwars/after_zpsyeb0ocx1.jpg)

And here is my final WEI (Windows Experience Index) score before moving to Windows 10

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/phreakwars/upgrade_zpsggrgbdri.jpg)

Overall, a HELLUVA deal for only $180+ upgrade cost.

Which of these cards would be the best to go with if i were to get the modder?  I'm hoping to be able to at least run something like Golden Tee and possibly Gamecube era and down and I would like to not have to replace the PSU if possible.

To answer that question for you speaking from experience. You'll want to get the GT 730. Unless you plan on changing the case. The reason being, is the case that this PC comes in is a SFF (small form factor) case so you will need to use a low profile ready video card. The GT 730 is about the best your gonna get in that category.

Just a quick note for anybody who gets one and tosses it into another case. Right above the main power connector on the motherboard, you will see a small cable plugged in that leads to the front of the case fan. This is a thermal sensor. You will need to disconnect it from the case and use the sensor in your new case or else the CPU fan will spin on high at all times. Figured that out the hard way after I had everything hooked up and running and the damn fan seemed so loud. I checked BIOS settings, took some readings and was at a loss. Thought maybe that's just the way the fan was and that I was gonna have to order a new quieter one.. did a bit of research and found out about the sensor, so I pulled it off the old case, plugged it in, problem solved. In the new case I have it mounted just above the CPU fan with some plastic ties. That way if the CPU gets a bit warm, it will know to speed up the fans... Don't really see that ACTUALLY happening though.. The new case has 3-120mm fans, 1-140mm fan and 1 huge ass 240mm fan on the side window.  ;D

Thanks for the heads up on this.   :notworthy:   We have been dealing with a noisy fan since transplanting the motherboard on ours.  We were going to try an upgraded fan but I can see now from your post that wouldn't have helped.

The computer was actually for a kid with Autism. His mom is a friend of mine back in Nebraska and doesn't really have the kind of budget it would take to buy him a gaming computer. The "modder" option was a hell of a steal at only $180 with 16 gigs of ram. She sent me the money, I ordered the PC and handled the hardware and software (Windows 10) upgrades. I did my good deed for the year and covered the cost of the new video card, case, power supply and SSD for her. He LOVES IT!!

Whelp, it finally happened.

Looks like I'm finally running out of modders.  :cry: :cry: :cry:

I'll need to do an inventory check, but until the dust settles after the current lot of orders is done this week, I'm taking them off the options list on the main post. Anyone who PM-ed me prior to this post will still be getting their modder, but I wanted to make sure this went out before anymore requests come through.

I still have portables and Basics left, and will confirm later today if the basiscs are also capable of the 16GB Ram upgrade. Now don't get me wrong, these are still great systems, especially for the price I'm giving them away for, just not as easy to transplant into other cases. Its more of a BTX style enclosure for those techy enough to know what that means.

Updates to follow soon.

Did the same thing as Phreakwars. Windows Experience of 7.4

Bought this case: Thermaltake Versa H22 Special Edition Mid Tower Case - Black
http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-CA-1B3-00M1WN-00-Mid-tower-Computer-Chassis/dp/B00J0NZ6PW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1452217344&sr=8-1&keywords=Thermaltake+Versa+H22+Special+Edition+Mid+Tower+Case+-+Black (http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-CA-1B3-00M1WN-00-Mid-tower-Computer-Chassis/dp/B00J0NZ6PW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1452217344&sr=8-1&keywords=Thermaltake+Versa+H22+Special+Edition+Mid+Tower+Case+-+Black)

Bought this hard drive as the primary: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E250B/AM)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OAJ412U?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OAJ412U?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00)

Bought two of these: Seagate 2TB Desktop HDD SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive (ST2000DM001)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005T3GRN2?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005T3GRN2?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00)

5.25" Bay accessory to connect bare drives: Kingwin Single Bay Mobile Rack for 2.5-3.5 Inches SSD and HDD (KF-255-BK)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M3WNWB2?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M3WNWB2?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00)

I already have a thermaltake 680w PSU and a Radeon XFX 677X

Bootup with the ssd is awesome.
Dual 2tb mirrored as the D: drive.
The plan was to put in a USB 3 PCIe 1x card to enable the USB 3 ports on the case, but the video card covered the only PCIe 1x slot
Wasn't able to get the pinout to work for the front audio. I'll need to rekey it, if I want those to work
Also ran into an issue getting the HD activity light to work

Overall, works great.

-=  Update =-

I recently had to fight a bad case of pneumonia. Was out of commission for a  couple weeks. Feeling better now, so will get back to testing out remaining stock and confirming orders this week.

If you tried to reach out to me in the last couple weeks I'll be responding to PMs shortly. I did have a couple previous customers paypal me for equipment without contacting me first. DO NOT DO THIS unless I confirm an order first. I am getting lower in stock and need to confirm what I have, and nobody like actually having to give funds back.

Will update the thread with inventory soon.

Since it looks like the  modders are all gone can anyone comment on the basics and how'd they be in a mame cabinet? If I threw a decent video card in there think they'd be decent enough machines? Or more importantly, can they run Golden Tee Fore! ? :)

I am new too and can't send PM's.  I am interested in the i5 desktops as well.  I assume these would be good for an arcade machine.  How many are available?  May be a month before I can buy one though.

Yeah just when I said I was on the mend, everyone else in the house gets sick.

It
Never
Ends
 :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

11 month old got it really bad (double ear infection) and had to rush him to the doctor multiple times fighting super high fevers when different antibiotics were not working. He finally got better right before this past weekend. The last few weeks have been BRUTAL. Our first born had to get tubes in his ears around 18 months, hoping we don't have the same with the little guy.

Anyway,
Anyone out there who had to take care of sick kids single handed knows I was pretty indisposed during all this chaos, so I'm taking this slow day to catch up on PMs and such. Again, DO NOT send me PAYPAL unless I confirm I can get your order done quickly so you are not waiting on me.

I'll get back to those who PM-ed me soon and will start getting orders done in the next couple days. I apologize to anyone waiting on me, it's just been a bad few weeks that I hope is now over.

106 degree fever for my oldest. Emergency room visit for us. Scary stuff. She's fine now and back to sassy.

I feel ya man.  My youngest had an ear infection as an infant that came on so suddenly and thoroughly we had no idea what was happening...  right up till her eardrum popped and the goo came out her ear.  Mind you, she instantly felt better.  We were in the ER due to not fully understanding what just happened.  Luckily, antibiotics took care of the infection and infant eardrums heal with no problems.

Another satisfied customer reporting in.
I also had the loud fan issue after I moved the board to a bigger case.  If anyone is curious to see the part you need to look for, search for Lenovo 54y9922.

I obviously spoke too soon on the feeling better part...

The baby ended up needing multiple rounds of antibiotic shots after three different oral meds didn't shake his ear infection. Then the 5 year old got sick again, then the wife, and then me for the past few days (still nowhere near 100%, but I'm powering through it).

I figure this will all be behind us just in time for allergy season  :banghead: :angry: :angry: :angry:

Anyway, I'll be responding to all PM's (for real this time, honest) today and will start getting units ready to ship for those still interested. After the dust settles from any pending orders this week, I'll update the thread on what I have left. I have quite a few Basics left, but portables may soon be out depending on how things go.

I greatly appreciate those of you who understand the situation, warmer weather can't here soon enough.

I hope everything is OK as I've been trying to purchase 2 basics for over a month. When health issues arise that has to be priority #1. I've purchased from him in the past and can say with confidence that he is a reputable seller.

It's an ongoing fight when dealing with young kids being sick. I joked to co-workers this would subside just in time for allergy season, and it looks to be that case. Apparently it's been a rough season for many, not sure what was different this winter.

I didn't want to commit to orders until I knew I could send things out. I've spent any free time I could muster this week getting a bunch of basics and portables prepped and ready to ship. Now I'll be going back and responding to requests in order of contact on getting these out on Monday. I'm only committing to the quantity I know I can ship out Monday, so if you don't hear from me today you'll hear from me early next week on the next round.

To answer the above question, I prefer PMs as they can be better organized and handled. And they are permanent, not that I had to deal too much with anyone playing shenanigans. I don't check the thread as often so orders shouldn't be placed here.

Those that reached out to me from the last post till now will be getting tracking #s via PM today and these will get shipped out this afternoon.

That aside, between repairs and having the appropriate spares, I am OUT of the standard model portables. I'll be updating the main post shortly. Anyone who placed a request with me prior to today's date is still guaranteed a portable, as long as I get payment within a week from when I confirm their order. Then any stock is up for grabs if I have any left.

Again - anyone that asked for a portable prior to this date will be getting a portable.
BUT, there may be a few that actually get a free upgrade. I do have a newer model portable in very limited quantities (limited enough that I wasn't sure if I would sell them here in the thread). And it's not fair to those waiting on me to pay more, because I didn't know my available stock.

HOWEVER, I'm freezing any further requests for portables until the dust settles with me catching up on requests. Once I'm ready to sell the remaining stock, I'll post with which model I have and the quantity left. A couple of you out there already know what this model is and know I'll most likely be selling them for $150 shipped once I'm ready.

Still have plenty of Basics, so no freeze on those.

You PM-ed me multiple times before these posts that you wouldn't be able to pay me until next Friday, so which is it? I already said I'm holding these for you whenever you can make payment, no rush. Not sure what else needs to be said. By date of contact you were in the first round of orders I worked on, so I'm upholding what you requested. They are ready to go when you are.

If you change your mind let me know, no hard feelings. I have another round of people waiting for me to start on their orders so if you don't want these I can reallocate.

Thanks yotsuya. :cheers:
 Don't know how much more transparent and open I can be on these things. Life happens and this isn't my day gig, so if I'm busy I'm not going to start taking people's money if I can't get items out quickly. I have enough stress as it is. That's why I've stated here multiple times to those that already have my info - DO NOT - send me paypal unless I told you to do so.

Anyone who paid in the first round got tracking #s soon after. And after a couple all-nighters taking care of emergencies for work I delivered all the boxes to UPS today myself. (They were not going to come by for pickup until Friday and that was not going to work for me).

And again, anyone who reached out to me before I removed the portables as an option will still get a portable at the old price. The fairest ting I can do is reach out to people in the order they PM-ed me and if anyone pulls out or doesn't respond, stock will get shifted accordingly.

I know there's a few of you that haven't heard back from me yet, and that's because you are in the 2nd wave as stated before. Give me time to breathe and get more stock ready to ship and I should be ready to confirm orders early next week. Once I'm caught up I'll post what model portables I have left and pricing.

i gues there is confusion here, i got a pm from you asking me to pay for the 5 laptops, but since it was a long time i only had enough to pay for 2, thats why i asked you to waitt for me till thisnext friday, however i never got a response back with either a yes or no, thats why i wasnt sure if icould paypal you themoney this friday or not, but if you still up to, i can go ahead and send you the money on friday no problem at all. I was just expecting a clear answer.  :cheers:

I've been waiting for a portable since the beginning of January, but I have yet to receive the "payment pm."  I'm not sure where I stand in line.  Just curious how long has everyone else been waiting.  Not that I'm in any rush...just wanted to know that at least I'm in line.

I bought a modder about this time last yr also.

Both times I had a tracking number within a day of paying & both times they came so fast I had no idea what they were until I read the box because I wasn't expecting them for another week.

Abispac's is sent out. I'll be reaching out to peeps on the next wave of shipment this evening. Took time to hunt down and kill the doofus that trashed all my packing supplies. No excuse for delay but wanted to be sure I can pack everything up properly.

I'll get the next wave out within the next couple days and regroup to post remaining stock. At that time I'll start taking orders on any remaining potables.

Ok so im gonna give my review so far on my experince on this great deal.

#1.- After i got the portables i felt a bit desapointed due to the fact that i didnt did much research on this and once i gt the laptops, i got 5 t410 lenovos, wich i can easy buy for 90dlls of ebay with more ram on some or more harddrive space , but that was my mistake fr not doing research first.

#2.- Not sure if TKW4rr10r knows, but the battery on this laptops are damaged, at least on mines are,they dont last more than 20 minutes with full charge.

Far from that, the laptops run good, they run mame ok, taito type x dosnt work. Shipping and handling took way to much time and poor mesage responce for a good sale. Thanks And i wont be buyig again.

Whelp, I guess it's my fault for assuming any issues people would have with their machine would be brought to my attention via PM in/or addition to the thread. It's not like I've haven't said in the main post and many times throughout the thread to reach out to me via PM, as being EXTREMELY busy I'm more reliant on e-mail notifications via PM then checking here.  :banghead:

I think its reasonable to assume when purchasing older laptops that the batteries are of the same age unless otherwise stated. While I test the machines when setting them up, I really don't have the several hours per unit to spend going through a full charge cycle/discharge cycle. I do however verify the batteries are fully changed and confirm in Lenovo's own software the battery health and capacity (I toss any that have a 'fair' or lower rating and keep 'good/green' units in outgoing shipments). This software remains on any unit going out to check for yourself, BTW.

That is not to say that sometimes batteries degrade or drop their charge, since again, these are not new machines. I've already worked with members in the past shipping out replacement batteries or whole units if something happens either during shipment or soon after purchase. I'm sure a few here can attest to me making sure anyone who buys from me is taken care of, within reason (sorry if your laptop dies 2 years from now, not my problem ;) ). But that was when I was reached appropriately via PM, go fig. So I'm not loosing sleep with anyone wanting to bring negativity just to the thread, I got enough drama on my plate as it is.

It IS MY FAULT, however, that I have not been in constant update / communication status here. I can repeat that this isn't my 9-5, trying to do this in my non-existent spare time, blah blah blah. Add in I'm getting things in order for my one year old going into surgery next month (not getting into details here sorry don't ask) and my head has been on a constant swivel. I honestly thought things were dead not getting any PMs and didn't bother checking in here so that's my bad.

So..... besides venting I'll use this post to state I'm reaching out to anyone that PM-ed me recently asking for stock updates and update with I found some more portables if anyone is interested.  Just my luck, I gave a few people free upgrades to a newer model last round, thinking I ran out of the T410s, just to find them hiding recently  :angry:.  No changes other than I can only send ONE power adapter per unit going forward, since I'm running really low on stock. Still have plenty of basics, as well.

I'll just close out the rant by saying: anyone wanting a unit shipped to them next day after first contact, yeah look elsewhere. I don't ask for payment until I have them ready to go out the door and if UPS ground is too slow for you, shop amazon prime. Pay 2X+ times the price while you're there, too. For those of you who understand sometimes life gets nuts and family comes first, I appreciate you  :cheers: I'll be the first to admit I need to do better on comms and will continue to do what I can to get cheap equipment in the hands of bros here in a more timely manner in the mean time.

Forgot one more thing - link to thread below:

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,150490.0.html (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,150490.0.html)

I had to cancel a planned trip to the northeast next week for a yearly event called cigarfest, and have not been able to find anyone locally interested in making the trip.

http://www.cigarfest.org/ (http://www.cigarfest.org/)
It's a pretty awesome event, and you'll leave there with bags of swag and over a hundred cigars. Well worth the price of admission and I've been there about 4 times now. But family needs me here during that time.
If anyone in the area is interested please let me know. I have a Saturday admission ticket, and the event polo and hat that gets you even more goodies when you show up. I'm looking to sell them at cost and will include overnight shipping once payment is verified. I'll sell just the ticket if it comes to it, but you really get a LOT more when arriving if you bring those, too.

First one to PM me and do Paypal gets it. I would really hate to see this not get used. Thanks in advance.

For those of you who understand sometimes life gets nuts and family comes first, I appreciate you  :cheers: I'll be the first to admit I need to do better on comms and will continue to do what I can to get cheap equipment in the hands of bros here in a more timely manner in the mean time.

I love the machine I bought from you. I took it to ZapCon and used it with my EPROM burner to burn freeplay EPROMS for two Donkey Kong Jr boards right there on the show floor. It's been more than handy. I know my daughter is grateful for the one she got off you too. It's perfect for her school needs, and she saved $400-$500 easily.

I wouldn't make too much of the "complaints", they seem to come from people with unrealistic expectations.

No complaints from me as well. I've purchased a total of 4 machines. I understood the risks and as luck would have it all mine are performing well.

I know what kind of work is involved with coordinating something like this, so if there were any issues - I'd understand.

Any chance you sell Win7 COA's? If so, how much?

I appreciate it, thanks man. Truthfully, if I didn't have to worry about the stuff on my plate and the 9-5, I'd have PCs arriving at people's doors by the time they clicked "post". Well, not really, you know where I'm getting at. But I've learned the hard way people just don't know what goes into refurbishing something like a PC and getting it out the door shipped for the prices I'm offering. Especially the time invested. I try not to get jaded and a few times I wanted to just say f-it. But during times like when my wife was out of work it was a blessing to have the buffer this offered. I started at first to have this fund the hobby and at times it was just to help ourselves or some friends survive. So I try to stay as appreciative for those that think of me when needing an order, as they are for me still doing the service. I will however, breathe a heavy sigh of relief when I finally get rid of the rest of this pile.

Dude if you need 1 or 2 just PM me. During this I've come across a few machines I wouldn't / couldn't sell so I can pull some codes for you.

I can't imagine you're making a whole helluva lot doing this, as the cost to ship something the size/weight of a PC is ridiculous these days. I know many people appreciate the effort and service though. I was going to buy an i5 modder from you for a new PC for the parents, but unfortunately you didn't have them in stock so I ended up just building them a cheap AMD model. Also, I completely understand having the income as a buffer too. I'm on permanent disability from a motorcycle accident in 2009 that left me paraplegic. The button decals I sell linked in my sig, while I don't make a ton of $$ off of, helps out more than people think and adds up.

PM sent regarding the COA's.

Regarding your basic PC build, does it support booting with a keystroke? (As in, I don't have to press the power button).

Resuming from sleep, sure. But cold-booting from a keypress? Honestly have no idea. Will have to investigate that.

If it's available, it would be an option in the BIOS. This is a make-or-break feature for me; I want my arcade to be as easy to use as possible. Please let me know!

Yes, Iím still alive.

Last month+ with work has been murder, working crazy hours and sometimes overnight meetings. But Iím salary, so the lack of overtime makes up for it. WaitÖ what? :dizzy:

Between that and taking care of the kids and trying to squeeze in time to make repairs on the house, I couldnít make commitments to doing any new orders until the dust cleared from this chaos. Iíve been watching my mail for any post purchase support issues, but didnít want to comment on any new orders until I knew I can turn them around in an acceptable time-frame. I actually wanted to make this post a couple times in the past weeks, but always major drama with either the home-front or work would pull me away.

I also realized that with Microsoftís Windows 10 free offer expiring the end of this month, I wanted to make sure I made available what I could, for any still interested in that aspect of the cheap PC offers. So Iíll have a dozen Basics ready to ship by the end of this week, and more if the demand calls for it the following week.

So Iíll be replying to PMs about availability shortly. Anyone interested let me know so I can setup a queue and know what Iím prepping out. Again, Iíve been setting up about a dozen over the weekend to be ready to ship soon, but can work on more if itís called for.

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I hope to be finally past the crazy schedule demands for now.

What Slippy said. You're not a vendor, so I think most of us expect you to do this when you can. If people are impatient or uncomfortable, well, that's their business. But the rest of us know you're a stand-up guy.

I have a modder i would be willing to sell. It has an EVGA 2gb GT 730 in it and upgraded to 16gb of RAM.

Bought from Tkwarrior and has served me well. Upgrading to a custom built PC now that i have money.

230 shipped.

Will make my own thread if need be.

Was able to get the orders placed since my last post shipped despite the kids giving me their Pneumonia. Still have laptops and Basics left to any that want them. I may do some in Windows 10 just in case they are wanted after the free trial runs out.

Also provided some windows 7 COA codes, I don't have many of them but if I missed anyone that PM-ed me asking for them let me know.

Just as an FYI, I put Win 10 on my modder and tossed in an SSD. It runs great and boots up in around 7 secs. I haven't had any issues with Windows 10 on it and I've even added a decent video card. Currently using it to run a mini pinball cabinet and running arcade games on the backglass.

Sorry for the necro bump but I'm running into an issue and wanted to see if anyone else had the same experience.  I have one of the Basics (I believe it is a Thinkcentre M90) and it works great.  I tried to install a Radeon HD 5450 graphics card in it to use with GroovyMame.  The card works fine in another PC I have but when I install it in the M90 it will not boot.  I flashed the BIOS but still no luck.  I'm wondering if this motherboard doesn't support the HD 5450.  Has anybody else run across this?

Half heigh Pcie... um is there a speed or something> I thought there was pcie x16, x8 etc??   Any recommendations from amazon.ca? Is Low profile the same as half profile?

What about ram/? what type of ram is it? I have 8 right now.

Is the video upgrade worth it? Will it stop the laggy ps2.. right now its playable just lags.. I also have not updated emulator in a couple years..

Use CPU-ID to check RAM.
I believe the video card sockets in those are PCIe 8x

if you open the case you can see how many RAM slots there are. These machines top out at 8 or 16 , google is your friend.

I have one of the modder pc's that I just got in last week from the OP and I got in the visontek r7 250 card yesterday (have a sapphire one in the basic pc), so installed that card in the modder pc and checked gauntlet legends again. 

So looks like the modder pc was solid with the r7 250 card.

Hi all, I got both the modder and basic. I just a got a Sapphire R7 250 low profile video card and the box states a recommended 400watt or higher power supply. Would there be any issues popping this in either pc without changing the power supply?

Thanks!

usually if it needs an extra power connector you need to upgrade the PS, if it doesnt odds are you'll be ok.

Thanks for the reply. On one of my modders, I've installed a GTX 1050 2GB but can't get Ridge Racer/RR2/Rave Racer to run at 100% in Mame. Anyone else try these? I believe Mame relies more on the CPU, not the video card, but I could be wrong. BTW, Supermodel runs great with the video card, especially when compared to the onboard.
