  1. Any retro gamers here? What is your favorite system.

    I've been trying t o get my Atari 5200 going but stuff is really hard to find for it.

    I've  got a Wii going also. hard to believe its nearly 2 decades old now

    I am a Computer Repair Specialist. My recommendations at this time may be a little lack luster since this is a price vs. quality build. One that will last a long time for money spent.
    This Build list is a BUDGET build, but it can still run Battlefield, Warzone, MC Optifine CUDA Shaders at high quality. (prices may vary depending on area. Do NOT get PC parts from amazon. Get them from newegg.com)
    Motherboard: ASRock B450M/AC - $85.99
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700x - $309.99
    GPU - GTX 970 - High Price atm.
    PowerSupply: Thermaltake Smart BX1 750W - $75.99
    Memory: G.Skill Trident 32gig - $189.99
    Storage: 500gb SSD (Bootdrive or M.2) 2TB HDD - Prices Vary and Change
    Cooling: Thermaltake TH120 ARGB - $75.99
    Case: LIAN LI PC-O11 Dynamic - $159.99 
    Thermalpaste: Corsair brand - Prices Vary and Change

    The case can be reused over and over, and it's aluminum so it's heat wont be trapped by steel like most cases. It IS a more expensive case but you wont thermal throttle from overheating because of it.
    These parts are NOT the greatest, but for their prices they get the job done REALLY WELL. The GPU is one I also use at this time. And I can run Escape From Tarkov without lag, and run a modpack I created at 190fps.
    Again. BUDGET build

    I am not an avid gamer like some, but I do a lot of tech stuff, and really it is kinda crazy just how much you can spend on a "budget" machine. I shudder to think of the cost of an "excellent" one
