Would this system be good for WinUAE?

I'm thinking of buying a new PC to use with WinUAE. I have to do things on the cheap and can get a fair deal from a local guy on a system with the following...

Mother board: Soyo K7VM333
Processor: Sempron 2500+ 1.75 Ghz
Memory: 512MB DDR 333mhz

Has UniChrome GDX onboard video with 32 MB shared ram.
(board also has 4x agp slot - but can't afford a card right now... perhaps in the future - any recomendations welcome)

Have the option of several different size hard drives depending on how much I wish to spend.

So, my question is would this work well with WinUAE? Would it be worth spending the money?

I'm actually trying winUAE on my old AMD k6-2/380 with 512mb and xp pro. it works fairly well although I beleive that it's really sluggish with the games.

Just looking for thoughts here, not trying to open the can of worms

i have an athlon xp 1800 (running at 1500 mhz), 512mb ram and it works more than soundly. even if i have a 128Mb geforce on, i remember it worked fine also with the onboard video gpu.

Yeah that'll be fine, unless you're after cycle exact emulation.

All is well!

Just wanted to follow up on this thread...

I did get the system as described above. So far it seems to work quite well running WinUAE with AmigaSYS 1.7, AF6 and soon I'll try AIAB.

Still get an occasional glitch in the sound but not too often. Mostly seems to occur only when running some complicated graphics at the same time as complex audio.

I'm much happier now!
