    No, you can't, so go and buy a GC by only 99

    You will not be able to find a PC fast enough to emulate the Gamecube using the current methods of emulation. Future Gamecube emulators will have more advanced recompilers and will be faster. It is now more of a waiting game until furthur development takes place and speed increases.

    I echo what has already been said, the requirements of Dolphin fluctuate with each release, so it's not known what sort of system will be needed, so you're better off getting a real GC.

    If you want a good system anyway get an Athlon FX-55 instead of the relative slow coach that is the Extremely Expensive Edition, and cut 2GB off that RAM for 6800 Ultra SLi.

    Why spend that much money for a computer?

    because people like to have something fast. why waiting 1 minute to unrar something if you can in 20 secs? especially when you have not much time. it's understandable.

    No it's not. If you have any sense at all, you'd wait instead of spending $500 for a new system with the latest hi-tech.
    And 20 seconds instead of a minute isn't much gain at all....
    And do not understand WHY people wish to play the GC games on the computer, EVEN though some even own the cube... why? Emulation is more flawed than the cube atm, and there will be no gain on it...

    It's nice to see people support the hardware industry
    This pushes the future

    It's not logical to buy a new PC for playing GameCube instead of buying a gc, but I think it's just the magic of having a possibility that no one else has.
