There are people who are selling prehacked dreamcast joysticks over at www.arcadecontrols.com

use that with a dreamcast and the joystick of your dreams and you have yourself a cab. heck, do the 15hz vga hack like I did and you have arcade monitor going

A dreamcast in an arcade cabinet is amazingly easy and some great games. I played the heck out of mine for a year... haven't done much recently though.
