    I'm going to be getting a new computer soon, but I can't exactly afford a top of the line gaming PC. I don't particularly care about running Wii/GC games on Dolphin in 720p/1080p, 480p would be enough for me. So my first question is, what are the minimum PC specs I would need to run Wii/GC games on Dolphin in 480p with little to no slowdown?

    My second question is, is it possible to run Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10 and other Wiiware games on Dolphin?

    Im running Dolphin on my rig. A triple core AMD with 4 gigs of ram and a Radeon 4580. I can run the emulator without problems. Except some keyboard to remote translations. I haven't been able to run Wiiware yet. Haven't really tried. Will give you a update if it can..Try the official Dolphine Website for more information http://www.dolphin-emulator.com/

    Dolphin runs best on a computer with a multi-core processor and a graphics card which supports OpenGL/DirectX, Pixel Shader 2.0, and OpenCL. Preferable graphics cards are those manufactured by nVidia or ATi. Dolphin is able to accept input from a mouse, keyboard, joypad, joystick, Wii Remote, and microphone.

    Minimum requirements

    * Operating System: Microsoft Windows (XP/Vista/7) / Linux / Apple Mac OS X (Intel version)
    * CPU: Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 with SSE2
    * GPU: OpenGL 2.1 or DirectX 9.0c compatible[/p]

    My Core 2 Quad Q6600, 4GB DDR2 and NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT combo can do it for practically every game on the latest revs, including MKWii, Brawl, DBZ BT3, etc.

    EDIT: Forgot to say with Dolphin-Emulator.com's optimizations and with Progressive Scan enabled. Same speed with real Wiimote. MKWii works like a dream.
