The ULTIMATE Budget Gaming System 2018

The ULTIMATE Budget Gaming System 2018

We love games and we love to play them. But in 2018 we can surly have ONE gaming system that can play everything? Dedicated to gaming and completely controllable with a controller? ONE system that can play old, new, PC games, Console games… EVERYTHING! ….ALL FOR LESS THAN £300!?!?! ($380 USD)

So I am making it my mission to build one and this is the first one out the gates. The video is 50 mins long… terrilong I know, but I have allot of information and games to get through. I asked if you wanted it split or full and you said full… here you go!

**TIMESTAMPS**
03:33 – SOFTWARE
06:46 – PC GAMES BENCHMARKS
17:41 – EMULATED GAME BENCHMARKS
33:29 – THE PARTS USED AND WHY
44:52 – BREAKDOWN AND TOTALS

More videos and builds like this on the way… Some cheaper, some more expensive. It’s all thanks to you guys helping and making this channel what it is that gives me the chance to do this kind of thing. Thank you to everyone who has helped and those of you who even donated parts to make some of these happen and of course those of you who donated to my Patreon… I hope I did you all justice and you will all have the credits for all your help.

Please be aware that in the capturing of these videos the framerate and bitrate has been changed for them to show properly in this video. This means that the footage is not identical in quality to the original gameplay. I am not saying I have improved them, if anything they may seem choppy due to variable 30-60fps games being handbraked to a static 60 to be usable in my software and YouTube.

You will need Windows 10. I am not including this in the budget as worst case scenario you can use fully fledged Windows 10, even Pro if you wanted to for free as long as you dont mind the WaterMark. But, in 2018, I am sure you can source a full version of Windows for free if you look hard enough.

WARNING!:
This video in regards to Emulation is made to encourage you to play your BACKUPS. In other words, THE GAMES WHICH YOU ALREADY OWN!. Please do not emulate any games which you do not already have on any systems which you do not own. Unless of course they are abandon/free-ware due to license or age.

Emulation for me is not about playing games I do not own. It is about playing games on another platform. In fact on my PC at 4k internal resolution 60fps with one controller… not having 200+ consoles set up with 600+ controllers tangled up!

ESPECIALLY, do not sell anything to do with this scene or be stupid enough to buy anything from this scene. Support Developers (especially SEGA) and pay for what you play!

  2. CJ Rhoades on November 1, 2018 at 4:56 pm

    Im attempting something similar to this, all I want to know is how Xenia progress is coming along? Id imagine it will still need a very powerful GPU still



  3. Siera (The Chosen One) on November 1, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    Excellent channel, I love this so much!



  4. Cr4zy Rogue on November 1, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    So does this launchbox actually launch the game with the right emulator in full screen?



  5. Pedro VGM on November 1, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    Thanks for loving and sharing so much Austin shall Jesus guide you.



  6. Joseph Pascua on November 1, 2018 at 5:01 pm

    Me: dont. just dont. You have no money
    Also me: Let it consume you



  7. Mustang WTS on November 1, 2018 at 5:01 pm

    Hi Simply Austin 🙂 I would like more arcade system in test on your builds : taito type EX, nesicaxlive, moderne 3D arcade (ghost squad and other) etc. I build my arcade room only for those games, so if you can test some of them on your budeget build it would be appreciated becaus the choice of PC parts is a huge question for me. Thanks !
    Where is the updated build (what is the new cpu ?



  8. adrenalinex4 on November 1, 2018 at 5:03 pm

    this channel is awesome!



  9. Greatest Ever on November 1, 2018 at 5:04 pm

    Meh honestly I’d say gamecube is prolly the hardest system to emulate on systems and is widely used as a benchmarker. Ps2 ps3 and psp emulators are written so well that they dont tax the system nearly as hard as dolphin does especially when pushing it 1080p or higher. Either way I guess the fx8350 is better than the i5 2500. Getting 50ish fps in zelda at 1440p



  10. Dion Davis on November 1, 2018 at 5:06 pm

    A htpc does this



  11. Abyssal Hope on November 1, 2018 at 5:07 pm

    Where do you get the catalogue for isos/roms? It’s so annoying to have to download them one by one.

    Cheers.



  12. Henry Tetreault on November 1, 2018 at 5:07 pm

    42:20 what’s wrong with keeping my humongous family photos library on my HDD? Any better idea where to put them lol

    45:45 looking forward to these upcoming pc specs for emulation

    49:57 think it’s 3 bells not 5 for all video notifications



  13. Simpson on November 1, 2018 at 5:08 pm

    want a challenge? try to get an acceptable framerate (minimum stable 30) on cemu with amd hardware, good luck.



  14. mthwr on November 1, 2018 at 5:13 pm

    Amazing



  15. enigma on November 1, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    Lots of work! Isn’t it simpler to buy a LattePanda Alpha? Similar price and quite good quality…



  16. Wyman and Brad on November 1, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    24:56 What game is this?



  17. Dallas Dal on November 1, 2018 at 5:17 pm

    Why do you have a evil hate monger right wing terrorist organization for a sponsor, pragerU?



  18. Daniele Fedele on November 1, 2018 at 5:20 pm

    Hello. I am Italian and I would be REALLY interested in this machine and its operation, but, unfortunately, I do not have your same skills. Could you give me some advice for a possible purchase and to enjoy this "console"?
    Thanks you in advance.
    😉



  19. ᴛᴀʏʏɪʙ sʜᴀʜ on November 1, 2018 at 5:20 pm

    Hey Austin, this is guys.

    Wait, _this isn’t Austin…_



  20. Frank Seidel on November 1, 2018 at 5:21 pm

    Nice Video as always from you Austin. It would be real nice if you could Talk to the Ĺaunchbox Guys to get Bigbox licence maybe with an code from you. I would take the Lifetime licence for little less than 50$ at once. Big Box is the best when it comes to Präsentation ion large TV’s !!!!! Thanks for spend all your Time making good Tutorials 🤩



  21. Ethan Bowman on November 1, 2018 at 5:22 pm

    Wait is there a Xbox one emulator?



  22. King .N5 on November 1, 2018 at 5:23 pm

    PC



  23. Dr. Bright on November 1, 2018 at 5:26 pm

    Id love to see everything running at 4k 70fps thats my peak expectations lol



  24. Siddhesh Thorat on November 1, 2018 at 5:27 pm

  25. Mauricio Sansores on November 1, 2018 at 5:27 pm

  26. Dick Riley The Conquistador on November 1, 2018 at 5:28 pm

    3DO company tried creating an ALL IN ONE console, but, some console companies refused to go along with it, cough, NINTENDO, cough.



  27. Laser Crunch on November 1, 2018 at 5:29 pm

    im beginning to think you choose the most rare unobtainable parts, like the damn Indiana Jones of the pc world or something, so I cant find that mobo or gpu anywhere. Great video though!! Thanks.



  28. Tarso on November 1, 2018 at 5:30 pm

    thats a 3k+ pc in Brazil… yey….>.>



  29. Camilo Hernandez Triana on November 1, 2018 at 5:30 pm

    Amazing work, greetings from Colombia



  30. HellLordBR on November 1, 2018 at 5:30 pm

  31. Dallas Dal on November 1, 2018 at 5:31 pm

  32. tony worrell on November 1, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    Great Video There I’m Building My Own Gaming PC



  33. Simply Austin on November 1, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    FINALLY! I got this puppy up and running 😀 If there is any emulators or games you would like me to add for future videos like this let me know. On this one I just tried to get the more demanding ones. But … its your content just as much as mine so you decide 😀 Also next Build already underway. Next video like this I will take you through actually BUILDING it and installing the software you need to make the magic happen!

    Thanks for all your support, you are all AMAZING!



  34. Tony Haboush on November 1, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    Sounds fun how do I set it up??



  35. Fomushi Mboni on November 1, 2018 at 5:33 pm

    33:29



  36. yomezzy on November 1, 2018 at 5:35 pm

    Sell me one please!!!!!



  37. Rob Harris on November 1, 2018 at 5:37 pm

    GTX 1080, 16 gigs of RAM, ryzen 5 1600 CPU. How am I looking? How hard can I push?



  38. on November 1, 2018 at 5:38 pm

    Sir, is NVIDIA GTX 960 4GB + i3 6100 still compatible for emulator PS 3 ?



  39. R Sanchez on November 1, 2018 at 5:39 pm

    Great video, good info but OMG do you love to talk sheeesh.



  40. ArchieIM on November 1, 2018 at 5:40 pm

    Would I be safe using an AMD CPU for emulation? Might go for the Ryzen 1600



  41. Caden Hugg on November 1, 2018 at 5:40 pm

    CLICKBAIT



  42. Andrew Horton on November 1, 2018 at 5:42 pm

  46. Wouter Veeneman on November 1, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    Now make it portable



  47. ofek zelig on November 1, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    Was literally just thinking about this yesterday. The tech’s out for it. Let’s get it going on!



  48. John Williams on November 1, 2018 at 5:53 pm

    This guy🙄🙄



  49. J. Roc on November 1, 2018 at 5:53 pm

    How’d you get the BIOS from Launchbox.



  50. Andres Hernandez on November 1, 2018 at 5:54 pm

    Hey Austin! I´ve been trying to do something like this for years. My current PC is perfectly capable of running any game at 1080p in medium, high or ultra settings, as well as almost any emulator. The thing is I’ve been running out of disk space and I´m too lazy to get another HDD hehehe.

    As you say, and many others agree, the best and easier way to organize a huge collection is the LaunchBox software, maybe the premium version. I think I would follow your steps and finally, after many years, organize and clean "the house".

    Recently I built a Raspberry Pi micro console to emulate the oldest systems. My Idea is use this cutie for the less demanding games and the PC for PS One and newer hardware, to save some money in the eletricity bill.

    Anywho. Great job! Congrats.
