for the pc i use to play mame, the version of mame i am running is about 3 years old, and that pc uses windows xp 64, with an intel core 2 duo running at 3.8ghz
the core 2 duo hasn't given me any problems as i'm not interesting in trying to run 'everything'
since the mame version i'm using is about 3 years old now, i'm thinking of starting over with the latest mame release and windows 7 64bit .. but what about that 3.8ghz core 2 duo? am i going to be ok with that or is it a bit.. out of date. (i know if someone asked me if it would be ok to run latest mame with a pentium 4, i would say "nah, don't bother".. i'm wondering if core 2 duo's are pretty much at that stage also these days; ie. perhaps better suited for old mame versions and not the latest builds?)
thanks for any advice
