Raspberry Pi Arcade Emulator Price Out

Update #1:

Today is the day I finally ordered my raspberry pi 3 model b, power-supply, and a 32GB SD card. I had an itch to get a bigger card, but then I came across this which led me to believe a 32GB card might be it's max and I don't want to pay more money only to find out it doesn't work.

List Of Items Purchased:

$36.00 - Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

$15.10 - SanDisk Extreme 32GB microSDHC

$9.99 - CanaKit 5V 2.5A Raspberry Pi 3 Power Supply

These three items tallied up to an exact: $61.09(including sales tax)

I'll have to get a case at another point and time. The one's on amazon weren't very appealing.

Original Article:

Last week, while I was on vacation, I got inspired by my Uncle to build an arcade emulator. Then, coming back to work I found a hacker news post about an article from coding horror detailing some of the specifics about raspberry pi based emulators. I figure the first step to see if I want to take on this project is to price out all of the hardware. Then depending on how much disposable income I can afford, I'll hopefully act upon this impulse thought.

Enjoy! :)
