I have an IBM Thinkcenter 8191KMQ 2.4GHz. If you intend to run arcade games from the PSX era up, you will definitely need a Core 2 Duo or later.

Old 2D games up to the CPS2 era should be fine, my 1.2GHz (Celeron) HP Pavilion 500a could run SSF2 and most of the NeoGeo games with no trouble back in the MAME 0.8x days.

My other two PCs (my current one being an Acer Aspire T310) are both P4-era as well, this one is 2.8GHz and is a Celeron at that, and the third PC is a P4 3.0GHz (Intel board of some kind). None of these can even run Tekken 1 at full speed in MAME.
