    Depends on the game and the MAME build.

    Go for an older build. Anything around 0.60 era will run a lot of games a lot faster. 1GHz no earlier builds will give you right up to CPS2 hardware at full speed without any issues.

    What sort of games do you play the most?

        The games i play most are the classics, Pacman, Zaxxon, Time Pilot, Tempest, Boulderdash, Bombjack, and the likes.

        from memory the board does have onboard sound. i need to dig it out again from under my workbench.

          Bah, then a 1G Celeron is overkill! My first machine ran all those and more with a P2 400 and 128M RAM on top of Win98SE (MAME version 70ish). I have another machine running a P3 500 with 256M RAM running the classics on XP Pro both machines with MAMEWah as the FE although I had also run the P3 with ArcadeOS as I had it prepped for my cocktail (ended up with MAME v30 just to be sure it ran OK though).

              ok, i dug it oout.
              it is a "spacewalker" mobo.
              mv25 is the model of it and the bloody hdd has $h!t itself...

              oh well.
              it was old 10 gig hdd anyhow.
              might get me a 2nd hand drive from cashies or something and load it up.

              looks like the onboard sound is a via vt612a and runs full via chipset.
              i can get via ftp rather then cd.
              i have a 1.5 meg adsl connection.how big is the file?
              or maybe even if u send it via http://www.yousendit.com/

                      Yeah but it doesn't support Gyruss so it's no good!

                        Yep... Peale was the last person to pick up Vantage and try to take it somewhere better. Wish someone would take the mantle again and give it a run.

                            Remember there's also RAINE:
                            http://www.rainemu.com/

                            On average it requires around half the specs of MAME for the same titles. And it supports way more games.

                            You are by no means limited to MAME if you want to play retro titles. Sure, it's the most popular. But it's far from the only one out there. But it definitely is the slowest emulator around, ironically (due to the accuracy vs speed debate of course).

                              Doesn't support Galaga, Galaxian, Gyruss or Moon Cresta. Even worse than Vantage!
