An Amiga 500 MC68000 at 7.14 mhz with 512k of ram can play SIDs with CPU time to spare. There shouldn't be any problems with other Amigas

If you're using a PC then you'd probably be better off using Sidplay/Sidplug/etc. instead of using WinUAE to emulate Amiga's Paula sound chip which in turn is being used to emulate the Sid!

Ummm.. even the old 486 had a LOT of CPU power - don't write older machines off just because bloated and sluggish Micro$oft operating systems have trouble running on them - An old DOS version sidplay will play SIDs fine on a 486/386/286 - not sure about an 8086/8088.
