    seems like a ripoff... why go top-end anymore when you can drop a half GHz, still have the computer do what you want and pay half the price?

    I wish they made 4ghz cpus. Primal Rage, Cruis'N, and Killer Instinct arcade versions through MAME require a 4ghz cpu for 100% accurate gameplay. Killer Instinct will probably require more when a 4ghz chip comes out(testing, etc.).

    For 3 whole games though, I'll wait around till the price drops down a bit.

    How could an arcade game need 4Ghz?! I don't know exactly how old it is, but I think Cruisn' was available on the N64, about 4-7 years ago. Does MAME really need that much processing power (and why?)?

    Those are the only games which require that much power. Mortal Kombat 2, 3 or ultimate 3 need 1ghz...street fighter the movie, area 51, stun runner, and galaxy fight might need bare minimum amd 2000+ ...but I can run all of these games fine on my amd 2000+ although area 51 does frame dip a tad every now and then.

    MAME is 99% accurate. It puts everything on your CPU - not your fancy Geforce 99 million, or OpenGL/DirectX 5.9999999, Quad CPU motherboard etc. If you had a dual 1ghz motherboard, mame would only see 1 1ghz chip. No shortcuts for mame. Accuracy all the way.

    Remember though, playing the games is just a nice side effect - it's a preservation project. Arcade boards die, games(hopefully) last much longer.

    700$ for a 3ghz cpu???
    Madness! You won't notice the change in games between 2.5 or
    3.0, and if you're planning to go render heavy things you're
    better off with a dual system.
