Will this be enough?
#287279 - 05/22/12 02:06 AM


I'm trying to build my first MAME Arcade Cabinet Would this computer be able to handle Windows 7 32bit and the MAME program, with emulators like Area 51 and Sunset Riders?
http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/sys/3015804924.html

I am currently running these emulators and some others on my Windows 7 64bit desktop, and I was looking for a new computer to put in the MAME cabinet, but I want it to run Windows 7, not XP or Vista. Does this look like a good candidate?

Thanks in advance for the help

I can't comment for that PC, but I recommend going with Windows 7 64-bit.

I think that would be OK for Sunset Riders, but Area51 definitely won't run at full speed. I've got an Athlon X2 3800+, and Area51 only runs at about 85-90% for me.
