You will never torrent every game in existence onto a Batocera PC for under £100 and laugh at all the console peasants who paid full price for all their games and for consoles that can barely play a fraction of the games you now have access to
Get a not-way-too-ancient Xeon and you'll be able to do ps3 emulation as well.Now I know the Phenom II's and Core2Quads are done for.
What kind of xeon? When I looked up Xeons I saw ones priced 500-2000.
E3-1220 v2/v3 are consistently priced at 25 dollars. Only downside is, they don't have igpu.
The phenoms don't have them either. So I'm waiting for a Xeon at the moment. It is just as cheap as an old core-I3, so I figured it would be a better deal when I already have a cheap gpu, which is faster than most igpu's.
