    Default PC for play emulators.

    Hello everyone, this is my first post in the forum. I bought a second-hand desktop pc. Its specs are:

    Processor: Dual Core E6500 (2M Cache, 2.93 GHz, 1066 FSB).
    RAM: 2GB.
    Motherboard: Asus p5kpl-am se.

    I want to emulate PS2, Dreamcast, Gamecube and Wii on that PC. And also play PC games, I do not need to play the most recent games, I'm fine with games from 2007-2011 (First Assassins Creed games, Street Fighter 4, Max Payne 3, Bioshock ...).

    What should I add? is enough with that processor?, I want to add 2GB of ram, what graphics card should I put on that motherboard?. I'm not looking for the most recent graphics card, I'm looking for a card that meets the requirements for those emulators and games.

    You'll have to check your power supply - chances are you'll have to use a low profile video card if you have some old Dell or HP etc. Either way you're not going to be able to run PS2 or Gamecube/WII games (on average - doesn't mean a few simpler games won't run fine) very well at all pretty much no matter what videocard you get. Even those PC games might be a stretch depending on what card you get.
