ULTIMATE EMUALTOR PC

I am no clairvoyance but you don't need a high-end system for an actual PS4 emulation to work. The PS5 isn't supposed to have much higher requirements for the cpu or graphics card, but it should allow for quicker loading times by using nvme/ssd drives.

So, you probably don't need any better than the Ryzen 3700x anytime soon, and a rx 5600xt/rtx 2060(S) is more than sufficient for any actual gamesystem and very likely for the upcoming systems as well. 16gb of memory is enough, but you should go with a 2tb+ harddisk for the system(s) and any older emulation environment,  plus a large nvme (qlc does suffice) for the upcoming generation.

You want it compact, so maybe go with a micro-atx mainboard and a compact case, like for example the Thermaltake Armor A30 which also allows to add a blue-ray and some hotswap-storage to it.

Hello!
 

Today I will be starting planning and searching for information about what I need for building the ULTIMATE pc for emulation of games and consoles like ps2, ps3 and etc...
What I am aiming at is that I want to build a pc that is compact (A compact case) but has good cooling compatibility and really really high processing power, much storage, and a good graphic card!

What would you recommend with a budget of around 2000€

He's from Sweden if I'm not mistaken, and prices/availability isn't the same throughout the EU. Just have a look at the prices in Ireland or - in this case - Sweden. So, your €2000+- list is pretty much useless for the TS.

 

@BamseSverige

What is the highest emulated system you would like to achieve?

I would like to achieve a build that can handle without problems in the next 5 years of emulation! 
Nintendo switch and ps4 when it comes out and all the other below those!
