In today’s video I’m going to show you how to take one of those inexpensive mini PCs you can find on Amazon and transform it into a retro gaming console. All in all, this setup can give you the most bang for your buck, and a lot of flexibility.
When shopping for Mini PCs, the current standard for affordable (sub-$200) new PCs will have typically have either the J3455 or J4125 CPUs. The mini PC featured in this video, the Geekplus mini PC, has a J3455, which can support PSP at 3x resolution and about 75% of GameCube games. Mini PCs with J4125 CPUs are a bit faster, and can handle 95% of GameCube games, PSP at 4x resolution, and even a few PS2 games.
