Pc recommendations for launchbox

Recommended Posts

Morning all

i used to use an emulator front end on android however I am looking to purchase a new family pc that I’ll use launchbox on. The pc will primarily be used to emulate SNES, mega drive, n64, and perhaps ps1 and wii games. It’ll also be used to play football manager and also used by my daughter for her school work.


having owned an iMac for many years I’m unsure as to what spec I need to be looking for in the pc. Not wanting to spend a fortune if it can be helped but happy to get a tower with a monitor. I’d like to use my ps5 on the monitor too.


any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.


thanks all

Hi really appreciate the response. So something like the following spec would work a treat:


i5-2400 processor

16gb ram

1tb plus 240gb ssd storage

4gb gtx1650 graphics card


look forward to the response

I would think a 4th gen intel i5 or newer based PC would be fine.

Like dell 3020/7020/9020


8 GB Ram


GT 1030 should work for video with advanced shaders

This is sorta a minimum.  I use this config for MAME, SNES, NES, Sega with no problems. But my Main desktop is a lot beefier.
