I plan to use a PC as a dedicated arcade emulator using Hyperspin - I was wondering what CPU would have the best performance-money ratio out of the FX-6200 ($143 aud) or the FX-8120 ($165 aud). As of now - the current setup goes as of the following:
-ASUS M5A97 Evo (this can be changed to suit another CPU - still unpurchased)
-4GB of cheap ram
-A rubbishy CM 700w PSU
-Asus ENGTX460 (of course I didn't buy it to play metal slug - it came from my sig machine
-a WD 1TB Black (^^^)
I'd be willing to switch the CPU and the board or go Intel if there's a better equivalent.
Oh - and yes, I do know a quad core is overkill for Pacman
