    Hello Everyone,

    I recently built a pretty good gaming rig to play a backlog of games that I have purchased. (Batman Arkham, Crysis, Borderlands, Sleeping Dogs, etc.).

    I was wondering if any android or other device is worth looking into to have these games streamed to. At times when I am not at my desktop and I am in another room watching TV, I would like to play some games.

    Does anyone know if anything reliable exists?

    Thanks!

    If I understand correctly, you have a PC you built that runs games well and you'd like to use an Android device in another room and control the PC to play games through the Android device as if you were sitting at your computer?

    Nvidia Shield !!

    Does exactly what your asking. Runs android. Can output to TV as well as it's own screen.


    You would need an Nvidia GPU in your gaming rig.

    Yes, there will be times where I am not in my room with the PC and would like to stream them to a device. That is correct.

    I did see this and I am definitely interested. However I have an AMD 6950 graphics card (Not Nvidia).
