I wrote a program called PCbi. It's a retro pc simulator + a 3d front end for PCem. A video explains it graphically: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Xh8L9PbXeMs. You assemble a pc from parts in full 3d and can then run and use it as if it were real. PCbi interfaces with PCem to provide the pc emulation, routing pcem's display into the 3d scene in realtime.

Binaries are available from https://github.com/leikareipa/pcbi-content/releases/.

Note that the component textures have been sourced from photos taken by a variety of people, you should read the relevant bundled text file to find out more about who did what.

PCbi is not endorsed by any of the companies whose products appear in it, nor has their appearance in PCbi been licensed.

I know, I may sound stupid, but how do I install the .patch file?

It's only needed if you want to build a PCbi-compatible version of PCem yourself.

In Linux, you can apply the patch with something like "$ patch -p1 < pcem_v16_for_pcbi.patch" if you're in e.g. ../pcem/16/ and the source code is in ../pcem/16/src/. Don't know about other OSs.
