I am very intersested in using an old PC to build an Amiga XP x86 machine, what do you think the minimumm spec would be to emulate a powerfull top end Amiga, i have an old system with Intel P4 2.8ghz, 1 gig ram and onboard graphics and audio and 80gb hard drive, would this be good enough?

If you guys are going to build dedicated PCs to act as Amigas, you really should try out Aros instead of Windows. Although WinUAE is still the most advanced standalone Amiga emulator, Aros is a true Amiga Operating System (it's not based on Linux) for x86, and it has very good 68k emulation and system integration thanks to JUAE. This means that although classic games will run in their own full size window or screen, OS3 Workbench applications open within resizable (where applicable) Aros windows, using the Aros menus and cursor for a much more integrated experience than any other PC OS can give you. The other big advantage to running Aros is that not only can you run classic Amiga applications and games, but you can also run modern Aros software which is much more advanced than OS3, and it has built-in USB2 support, which Amiga OS4 doesn't even have yet!

The system you described sounds fast enough for sure, hopefully the video and sound are supported by Aros too. You can try it out for free by downloading and burning the disc image, then boot the PC up with the CD/DVD in the drive and see if it loads up. If everything works fine, you can install it on your hard drive so it boots up every time without the CD.

You can download the two different Aros distributions from the links in my signature. It's worth getting them both and seeing which one suits your needs better, but they're both great fun to try.
