mednafen is the best saturn emulator as far as compatibility and accuracy are concerned. I think SSF is a close match (and far less demanding if you have a potato PC).

If you are looking for a saturn emulator with candy eye features like upscaling, i'd recommend Kronos which is developed by a friend of mine, but the compatibility/accuracy isn't as good.

My PC's condition is very well and recently upgraded my computer. So what do you think, if this list will be helpful to follow? Or have you used an of them?

Bizhawk and retroarch aren't even emulators, they are frontends for emulators. And yabause has far lower compatibility/accuracy than SSF (the name means "Yet Another Broken And Unfinished Saturn Emulator" and that's a very accurate statement). So i'd say this list is crappy.

If your PC is powerful enough, use mednafen, with or without a frontend. Or as i was saying you can give a try to Kronos if you want candy eye features like upscaling (personally i don't think upscaling looks good).

as said above, there is only Mednafen (+ medsat, if we are satisfied with the saturn), SSF and kronos (which are complementary) which can hold the road.
