Been away for while. Bought a second home in the mountains and it drained me of time and energy. Finally getting back to normal and decided to build a cab for the house. My house is on the small side so i'm building this unit to house my home theater/gaming pc , home theater reciever, wii, ps3 and xbox 360. I also put sega model 3 on this on and i'm still working out some of the controls. :)

Just have to get the tmolding on and make up a door for the bottom. The computer is a dual core 2.4 with a 2tb drive for movies and another tb made up of several hd's to store music, mame etc.

I'm drywalling all the walls so all the wiring will be hidden once done. Only thing i want to do is add a tinted plexi door to the bottom.

I have a pc with all my game and all my movies in the cab. I ran the pc to a hdmi switching reciever and i have it setup as a dual screen. The video games play on the cab and movies play on the tv. I also have ps3, xbox360, and wii in the cab. :)

Hoping to start work on my completely new cab for my basement in the next week. I'm going to do a full cab from scratch and a complete custom control panel with spinner and trackball.

I think i'm going to build my own cp. I worked on a homemade one the other day and it was pretty sweet. Especially since i want a spinner.

I build my own CP using tankstick parts. Works good for me.

Also, you should (If you dont already) put a video card in there that allow dual monitors so your friends can watch you play on the Big Tv there. :evilgrin:

It is a dual card. I play movies from the computer as well and i can set it up to mirror the game system :)
