Recommended system to run BigBox smoothly


Recommended Posts

I know that this is a bit of an open ended question, but as I install and set up more and more platforms and games onto my system, it is becoming apparent that my system is just a bit to old and slow to cope. My end goal is to have a fully functioning arcade machine, running BigBox with Coverflow (running fast and smooth!)

I have tried various things that have been suggested (from a previous topic I started), but all to no avail.

My current system is:-

Windows 7 Enterprise (x64)

Intel core i3-550 (3.2Ghz)

8mb Memory (2 x paired 4mb)

NVidia GeForce GTS 250 GPU

Soundblaster Audigy card

2TB SETA HDD (Solely for LaunchBox)

150GB SETA HDD, for Windows etc.

Platforms to run:- ZX Spectrum, Amiga, NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Gamecube, Master System, MegaDrive, etc etc, and MAME, CPS 1,2,3, Atomiswave etc etc. (Basically, everything)

Roughly, what would be the recommended spec of a system capable of running Coverflow etc perfectly, or any upgrades that would bring my system 'upto' spec?

Any help, or suggestions much appreciated!
