hey, i found a working neo geo on craigslist near me for $75! i will sell all of the original parts except for a few wires and the monitor and make money off this thing! im going to replace the control panel with a cool rotating one i found online ( heres the link :banana:http://1uparcade.rmf...nst-panels.html :banana: ) his control choice was kinda weird so im designing my own. the panel has 3 sides and so far i only have 2 designed ( 1 for racing and 1 normal arcade) and i need suggestions for the 3rd side. im going to use chrome rimmed rgb led buttons from ultimarc with a ipac and a pacled64! its going to look awesome! also planning to add this usb lcd screen to the machine for various reasons ( heres the link to this to :banana:http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1438.l2649 :banana: ) and hope that it could work with a front end and display the title of the game or the weather or some function from a front end. even if it will work, would the touchscreen part work with it too? and help is appreciated. :bunny::thanks:

$75? What a steal.

3rd side I would recommend a paperboy handlebar controller for all bicycle / motorcycle games.

I agree.  A handlebar controller would be ideal.

I had a neo geo shell once, I had to sell my house and I gave it away. I had such grand plans for it. Enjoy your project, can't wait to see how it turns out

Looks awesome! please tell me you plan to update this thread and let us know how it's going.  I've been guilty of not doing that for some of my HTPC builds.  :wacko:

Awesome deal! I am having a hard time finding cheap cabinets out here. I asked a guy at a game store if the neo geo cab was for sale and he was disgusted with me for wanting to turn it into a multicade

thats a weird cabinet to get upset over
i mean neogeo is already a multi cade :P
but there are plenty of empty cabinets in the wild

finding them is the hard part
