    It is also more for the collecting for me also, just to know I have the complete set. However I do sometimes give them a play just to see how well the emulation has improved. And actually with a more recent PC most of them are now pretty playable, unlike 3 or 4 years ago when you were more likely to get a slideshow because the framerates were so slow. A quad core CPU with a decent GPU will give a good stab at running most of them. If you haven't played any of them in some time give some a go. There are some good games mixed in with more obscure. Definitely worth trying Streetfighter 3, Killer Instinct, Star Wars Trilogy, Simpson's bowling, and Blitz.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Just realized I do actually download some of the newer games including the CHDs, like Street Fighter 3 and Killer Instinct but run them in a dedicated emulator rather than MAME.

    I'll certainly look at updating a few of those mention above in MAME too, but no way can I hold a complete set like you guys. Perhaps when I get a Blueray burner.

    Years ago I used to backup my sets to DVD-R, but not for a long time. These days I just hold 2 copies of the sets, mirrored between 2 systems (download server and emulation PC).

    DC has a better setup, using is NAS to store the lot, which has a RAID setup to protect it, and that is the best solution, if a little expensive.

    But at the moment with the increase HDD prices it definitely isn't a good time to get into large rom sets, that is for sure.
