PC specs

I'm super new to the game. Just coming off my first bartop build with an rpi. Still not convinced I totally understand everything I did with it, but it works. Anyway, please forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask, or a question that has been answered elsewhere. I looked through the forum and couldn't find it.

Are there some bottom-line specs for running CoinOps on PC? Of course I'd like something better than bottom-line,  but just to get an idea. I'd like to pick up a used tower on marketplace to do my first PC cab and run CoinOps, but I want to make sure I'm looking for the right thing and asking the right questions.

Thanks for any help!

I often find these questions odd....

Why not download it and the donor PC you have ready , copy it onto and see if it runs it well ?

or if your buying a PC for it then remember it plays latest PC games too, so depending on  your requirements depends on the spec you want/need

 

Anything current gen will run CoinOps.... but the games......thats another thing....

*you're

Being a newb, I dont find the question that odd, but I see what you're saying completely. It's not Coinops that would be the issue but how taxing each game would be. Thank you sir! I'm starting to understand things a bit better.

YOUR a prick...

I find it odd because there is literally a 4gb CoinOps release you could EASILY test on the PC, but you are doubting the games? MAME games are playable on vintage stuff. I also find it odd as you are clearly competent (seeing as you loaded a pi) and  asking a wide answerable question, if you intend to emulate Sega Master system you are good to go , it'll work, you will be fine - but if you want to emulate PS3 you will need something beefier, surely you are aware that the emulators will be machine dependant - or are you just being cautious ?

I think I was just asking the question incorrectly, but your answer put me on the right track.
