PC build for Emulators

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What would the specs of a PC that is made for GameCube emulation look like?


Obviously other consoles would be emulated like super Nintendo, N64, Sega Genesis, but the most demanding emulator would be a GameCube emulator.


I've been thinking about starting up a project like this soon, what would be ideal hardware specs look like?

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600

GPU: Zotac RTX 2060

RAM: 16GB 3200mHz Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO


STORAGE: 500gb 7200rpm boot drive, 2tb USB 3.0 Seagate game drive

PSU: 650w Corsair CX

For retro emulation, you probably wouldn't need much more than probably a Ryzen 5 APU. Those aren't terribly graphically demanding, they'll run on a Raspberry Pi.

I'll recommend a ryzen 3 2200g. It should be plenty for running those emulated games.
