Hello, I've decided I'm going to build a Hyperspin Emulation PC to run N64/SNES/NES/ etc. games on a 1080p HDTV. I know that to run hyperspin and to play n64 games at 1080p I need at least a dual core @ 2.0ghz cpu. But I'm needing help on deciding what gpu to get to run n64 games at 1080p with some ant-aliasing.
However, what I'd like to do is get a mobo with onboard video/hdmi out and said cpu to handle this task. Do you guys think theres a mobo out there that can handle n64 emulation at 1080p with onboard video? Should I look at other options? Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys
Yeah, N64 emulation isn't that GPU heavy; the CPU and emulator will affect you far more then the GPU.
PJ64 was already working fairly well on my 3GHz Northwood P4 with X700 GPU so there likely aren't any CPUs or GPUs or IGPs on the market today that would have the least bit of trouble running N64 emulation with any half-decent emulator unless you use a softGPU plugin.
N64 emulation today is about as much of a computing challenge today as SNES emulation was a dozen years ago: trivial.
If you want to give modern hardware a computing challenge, you have to step it up to at least PS2.
