    The cabinet and the controls are worth a lot more than you think. But yeah, pretty much.

    Super neat prize!!! [​IMG]. I'm a bit jealous but thats so cool. Are you going to use it? Or sell it? Not that I'm interested in buying it, just curious as to what you'd do with that prize.

    I'm going to use it. I'll probably load it with a current MAME full set and no-intro sets for a bunch of other systems.

    Still no good knowing where, no matter how much I lube it up I'd never be able to sneak it out. [​IMG]

    Nice setup though. I'd love to have something like that in my place. I couldn't find the actual PC specs, do you know what they are? Do you know what the latest era of games are you're going to be able to play?

    Doesn't really matter, even if the PC specs aren't the most up to date it's stll a result and a half. The PC stuff is always upgradeable in bits and pieces when you've got spare cash but getting the money together for a cabinet is a different matter. Nice win mate.
