Hi fellow Retro Monkeys.

I am finally settled in Ireland with an awesome 500mbps connection and main Rig built and doing great for PC Gaming and everyday Work/Use. Now the time has come to build me a Retro Gaming only Micro-ATX rig. Nothing extravagant, just enough to run everything from GB all the way to GC/PS2 and maybe PS3 if emulator permits. Budget is less than 400GBP (I use Amazon UK).

So far I have a build on both PC Part Picker and Amazon UK. I already have a 4TB WD Red NAS Drive for LaunchBox and ROMs. That's my limit for now.

Use Poll to vote for best build, even though difference between the two is minimal at best, tell me what you guys think after voting.

Thanks ;)

If you can stretch the budget a little id get a 1050ti instead of the 1030, that will open up things like wii u and ps3 a little more, this one is only £40 more expensive.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-NVIDIA-1050Ti-Express-Graphic/dp/B06XCNRZN3/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=1050ti&qid=1581522271&sr=8-2

Also you could get a Ryzen 5 1600 for £89.99. It also comes with a cooler, so you could save £35 towards it by not getting the noctua.

As usual thanks buddy. Cannot use the bundled cooler as it's an HTPC Low Profile Micro-ATX Case. As for 1050ti will look it up. ;)

Also i would check out both https://www.scan.co.uk/ and https://www.aria.co.uk/ both are good for PC parts.

I know I bought half my THX 1138 PC Gaming Rig from SCAN ;)

Edit : Updated PC Part Picker build but 450GBP is a bit too high as I still have to pay in Euros since am in Ireland. xD
