Can someone point me to right discussion on what box to buy and how to make one of these retro Gaming Boxes please?

I've seen sponsored ads on Facebook what looks like an android box with 2500 games from atari, spectrum, neo Geo, Nintendo, etc for £130, pretty sure something like that wouldn't be too hard to do

Get yourself a RaspberryPi and install RetroPi onto it. You can do it yourself 100%, I'm pretty sure the only advantage of buying an existing one is that you'll have all the games already there. I'm sure you could find huge single download collections of ROMs though.

they are basically charging you £65 for downloading a few ROMs for you, :grimacing:

if you run MAME4ALL I may know somewhere you might be able to get just over 2000 original classic arcade ROMs ;)

yes the software is called retropie, once you've downloaded retropie you can then add all the art work and various systems bios for almost every console ever made and then of course add the games / roms to play. Works very well, best to use raspberry PI 3
