What are some compatible displays for Arduino Uno? Answered

I'm gonna create a little half scale Arcade machine (out of cardboard if I can) just for fun so I can know how to code the screen but I don't know what displays can work for the Arduino Uno and I've found one at Sparkfun which is the touch one for it but that's too Expensive!

So what are some displays that the Arudino Uno can use so I can program it to display Atari's Arcade games on it?

Any display that has an Arduino library will work. So look through the display libraries available for the arduino. If you check Adafruit's website you'll find lots of great displays. Though the arduino isn't going to make for a good Atari Emulator. It just doesn't have that kind of processing power. It really doesn't have any processing power since it's a micro controller not a processor. If you want to play arcade games then you need to use a Raspberry Pi.

What Kind of Pi I'll need to build the mini Arcade with? All I'm gonna do is use it to display an image with it too, I'll just build an arcade like controller to use on the Flash versions of the Arcade Classics I have on Chrome.

Yhea, best way to go is the Ras-pi for an arcade, unless your doing like Pong or tetris. Still the Ras-Pi will give you some real options.
