I built one of these. I bought a arcade1up SF2 cab and converted it. Changed the joysticks, the buttons, added an amp, and of course a Pi. Had a 500Gb image on the card, and had over 13000 games from all systems. Was a great machine, but we just didn't play it, so I sold it. You can make a decent cab out of those arcade1up ones, with the above setup for about £500-£600

Was thinking about making a table-top machine and using my PI 3

Got an old monitor I could strip down and was looking on eBay for the joystick and buttons ;)

Sanwa joysticks you want. You can get them on amazon. Same with the buttons.

There's loads of videos on youtube about it, or on reddit /arcade1up or /homearcade

That's where I learned to do it.
