Specs :

Intel® Celeron® D Processor (2.66 GHz, 256kB L2 cache and 533 FSB)

Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition

Integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 (To be replaced by Arcade VGA card
from Ultimarc.com)

40GB (7,200 rpm) IDE Hard Drive

48X DVD/CDRW Combo Drive

My feeling are that it is more than suitable...... but I want to ask before
spending my money.

The PC is going to go into a mame cabinet. It will be running Mame and a few
other emulators.

Assuming that this is a Dell Dimension 3000 , they don't have an AGP slot so
you would need to use a PCI graphics card. Is the Arcade VGA agp only?

Not a huge amount of space if you want CHDs on there , and console and
computer emulators can use up a lot of space as well.

Sounds not bad.
Me is just thinking the HD *might* be a bit too small, as the current
Mame Set has OVER 40 GB...if you also want the CHD´s...
