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. Adrian Hanna on August 27, 2019 at 1:47 pm

    You’re a legend and inspired me to build an emulation rig. My childhood memories of playing classic games will become a reality. A million thanks I’m sending your way.



  3. The CassiKa on August 27, 2019 at 1:48 pm

  4. Zhihan Zhang on August 27, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    0% ummmm…



  5. Allen West on August 27, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    You can add emulators in Steam , and use a Raspberry pi to pull up Steam on your t.v. … or

    >> You can install Retropie on a Desktop computer running Ubuntu Linux , and run any emulator on it up to the Wii / GameCube …
    Retropie on a Laptop >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_pivT9KxEg



  6. Billy Walsh on August 27, 2019 at 1:49 pm

  13. Derbysquirtle Ba on August 27, 2019 at 1:56 pm

  14. K1ng Carlton on August 27, 2019 at 1:58 pm

    2:14-2:19 Man how many more of us out there?



  15. Steve Eric Jordan on August 27, 2019 at 1:59 pm

    hahaha i love your passion mate. you say the same things over and over again at least 10 times and this video could easily be 20 minutes long but somehow i love the fact lol. i know the feeling when you’re just really hyped by something great and want the world to feel what you feel about it.



  16. Leo on August 27, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    Question is where can I buy this whole setup?



  17. Chloe H on August 27, 2019 at 2:03 pm

    Wowzers, now that’s crazy ;-;, launchbox is good with a 360 controller?



  18. Jezreel Del Rosario on August 27, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Hi Austin! Are you dead already? Coz it’s been 8 months since your last video upload.



  19. Ninja o clock on August 27, 2019 at 2:07 pm

    Souljaboy saw this and said yeah I’ll try that



  20. ONYOURWAYTOOBLIVION on August 27, 2019 at 2:10 pm

    i dont watch videos more than 20 mins long.



  21. Raylight on August 27, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    You can’t hide that you are doing launchbox lots of advertising, so, stop lying.



  22. cesar lopez on August 27, 2019 at 2:12 pm

    Please let me buy one when is ready



  23. Green Cappy on August 27, 2019 at 2:13 pm

  25. Chandler Combs on August 27, 2019 at 2:17 pm

    I would just say, please make a separate video of you making the build that is shorter and simpler so we can see how you made it faster and easier! Great vid tho!



  26. 1 hp Bg on August 27, 2019 at 2:18 pm

    Fortnite sucks



  27. RUBBADUBS on August 27, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    What is a substitute for the h77n mobo? I have been scouring every website known to man and haven’t found it



  28. Billy Walsh on August 27, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    21:40 "nintendo has never been on the cutting edge technology "

    *FUCKING WHAT?!?!?!?!* this thing could play high end pc games before it could play nintendo switch games but thats not "cutting edge" enough for you is it?



  29. Allen West on August 27, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    I have steamlink installed on Retropie … It can pull up all games ,and emulators on my t.v. by steaming steam in retropie, plus I can play all my raspberry pi stuff … So …
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7DKWHmgF7I



  30. Abel Alvarez on August 27, 2019 at 2:21 pm

    Please test more emulators from the PS3,Xbox OG, and Xbox 360!!!



  31. r1skt8k3r on August 27, 2019 at 2:21 pm

    If I want to play mario 64, I would put the cartridge in the n64 console!!! If I want to play Wipeout I insert the disk in the PlayStation!!! I know nothing about emulators, how to put new ones on, what type of system to use!!! I am intrigued to get every game available for every system out there for my daughters who are toddlers and into video games. I’m getting a cabinet built with arcade sticks, a steering wheel attachment thru USB & light guns thru USB attachment!!! But the computer aspect is where I’m clueless!!!



  32. Simply Austin on August 27, 2019 at 2:22 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!

  36. Bulkierpond 281 on August 27, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    Ah yes, my favorite console Mario’s cap



  37. Greg McDaniel Jr on August 27, 2019 at 2:26 pm

    Where is the more powerful and cheaper version of this as mentioned in the end?



  38. shane opie on August 27, 2019 at 2:28 pm

    Can a pc like this play vr ?



  39. MiracleMaster &GoatsLaaLaaOoh on August 27, 2019 at 2:30 pm

    Any sources on the Sega Master System and Sega Saturn intro remakes seen?



  40. alberto vizcaino on August 27, 2019 at 2:34 pm

    Can this build work with the Ryzen 5 3400G? (I’m new to This pc building. Good with software bad with hardware.)



  41. Boss Man on August 27, 2019 at 2:35 pm

    sell it to me m8 🙂



  42. krysala on August 27, 2019 at 2:36 pm

    For the most bang for your buck, I recommend the 2TB Seagate Firecuda. Plenty of space for overhead and the Hybrid Drive interface will give you the read/write speed you need to run modern PC games with no issues. The plus size is if you look around you can get one for $100US or less.



  43. Jr C on August 27, 2019 at 2:37 pm

    Did the guy die or just nothing to make tut’s for? I hope that its the later.Really miss the tut’s from this channel.



  44. DeadlyHallowed 420 on August 27, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    awesome build great video enjoyed subbed 10/10 cant wait to watch next build



  45. Abel Alvarez on August 27, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    I can’t wait till one day we’ll have a mini pc that can run emulators from the atari 2600 to the PS4,Switch, and Xbox one (4k since that’ll be the norm in the future). From that point I’ll be happy to just have that and never really upgrade.



  46. Jersey Shakur on August 27, 2019 at 2:40 pm

    The into sold me



  47. cesar lopez on August 27, 2019 at 2:40 pm

  48. Jose Diaz on August 27, 2019 at 2:41 pm
