    Hi to all Project DIVA Arcade Future Tone gamers :)
    I have very important question for you all.
    I planning to build my own arcade cabinet and one of the important things inside that cabinet is it's "brain", a PC with certain parameters, but there may be deviations in one or another direction and that possible deviations I planning to define, because:

    SEGA NU SPECIFICATIONS:
    • CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.30 GHz
    • Main RAM: 4GB DDR3 SDRAM PC3‑12800 @ 800 MHz (12.8 GB/sec)
    • Storage: SATA
      • 64GB SSD
      • 500GB HDD
    • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX650 Ti @ 980–1033 MHz
      • VRAM: 1GB GDDR5 @ 6.002 GHz (192‑bit, 144.2 GB/sec)
      • Features: Supports DirectX 11.1 and Open GL 4.3 with two screens in full HD
      • Core units: 768 unified shaders, 64 TMU, 24 ROP
      • Fillrate: 23.5 Gpixels/sec, 62.7 Gtexels/sec
      • Floating-point performance: 1.50528 GFLOPS
    I going to use totally same PC, but there is still no graphical card.

    So. that I mean?
    Because of that damn mining hysteria it's very problematic to find videocards at all (and at a reasonable price even more hard), so I want to figure out what exactly card can be used and to find best card from the worsts :D

    ONLY NVIDIA, but other cards info welcomed too.
    For example:
    I suspect that GTX560 Ti can be somehow better then GTX650 Ti, but does someone used it to play? No info about that in internet.
    Another variant:
    I suspect that GT1030 can be somehow better then GTX650 Ti, but someone said that it has some problems with pre-rendered videos (I do not know why).

    i hope you understand what I mean, because in network no info about that all.

    So please tell what card do you use and with what problems do you face (may be it works good on 720p but have huge framedrops on 1080p, or I heard somewhere that some cards works better on 1080p, whatever), if you use card something like this.
    Thank you very much! :)

    If I remember something - I'll update thread, because from the start hard to formulate everything properly.

    When I first got the arcade rip I was using my 3gb 1060, which is fast enough for 1080p (and more I expect but I only have a 1080p monitor).

    In my cab I use a 750Ti which runs the game full speed at 720p (native for the game), for some songs there is slight frame drops with normal v-sync enabled, mainly on heavy glowing effects, if I turn on adaptive v-sync it's perfect.

    I've tried a 1050ti too and was able to play fine at 1080p I only tested it breifly as the card I had was too big to fit in the Nu case properly so I sold it on.

    GT 1030s don't support NVENC, which I thought was for Encoding videos not decoding. so unless somone has one to test I can't be sure of compatibility. However a 1030 is apparently slower than the 650Ti https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-650-Ti-vs-Nvidia-GT-1030/2189vsm283726

    I would say use 650Ti as a reference since it's stock, and just use whatever >= that that fits your budget. Although under the current GPU price, even 1030 is way too overpriced so I wouldn't recommend anything currently.

    That's very important nuance, because at first I was totally orientated on original Sega Nu configuration, but now think that for Full LG it needs more powerful card. May be, if I'll be lucky - I'll grab GTX760 in days (but I'm not sure), and that's can be great.

    Yeah, that's true, that is why I created this thread to understand some nuances of possible variants, because, as was written above, I thought that in graphical case power of 1030 can be nearly same, but it's not supports NVENC, that I didn't know, and it was pretty important remark.

    I thought 1050ti is somehow smaller :) But maybe not all variants are small :(

    Most are but the one I had was a gigabyte one and the cooler prevented the lid going on properly, the good thing about 1050s is they are one of the most powerful cards that doesn't need extra power from a 6-pin etc.

    The 1030 is a GT, not a GTX so loses a few features to make it cheaper.
