I have a question. I am new to the MAME construction. I have a golden tee 2005 and was thinking of getting a x-arcade and hooking it up to a motherboard. Does anyone know if you can run front end software on that motherboard with that monitor?
After ready the post over let me be a little more clear. Does anyone know if I will need to replace the board and the monitor to run front end software to make it a mame cabinet or can I just hook up a Windows hard drive and use the existing board and video card. The monitor doesn't look like it has normal vga hookups. Thanks.

Those monitors require some "hacking" and can be very dangerous since they retain voltage at a fatal level. I would be VERY CAREFUL with this. Due to the safety issue, Admins and myself will not make suggestions on this. You can buy monitors from x-gaming that will work with a PC.usins17 wrote:Does anyone know if you can run front end software on that motherboard with that monitor?
If you want a frontend, you need a PC and a monitor that will hook up to a PC using VGA/DVI/HDMI , depending on your video card.
