A pc picked out of the trash outmames any console. Only reason to use an Xbox is if you have a big arcade cabinet with no CRT, the Xbox lets you get a nice picture on an old used TV set.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.

Get you a dell optiplex on ebay. They steadily sell for about 40-50 shipped for the 4gig of ram ones. They play mame pretty great and have an option in the bios to have it boot when power is applied, so you can connenect everything to one power strip and have it boot everything at once without the need for a smart strip. Its not gonna play mortal kombat 9 but it will play mame and older consoles well.

Xbox boots in 17 seconds, does not have problems with USB inputs changing their order, can be turned off abruptly, can be converted to HDMI with a $25 adapter, etc etc.  Disadvantage is there's a lot of really neat newer games on PC you can't touch with an Xbox (Donkey Kong Advanced, for example).

Shipping is a killer. I'm seeing $60.74 over here.... Still no bad at all.

What adapter is that? A component to hdmi adapter?

That would be the first thing you'd change. Vista is awful.
There are easy emulation packages available like Lakka.

I'm finding that it doesn't really matter what MS OS is on there if you are just using it for mame. I have Vista on one of mine. Just clean it up, defrag and load up mame.

I do wish however that win98 could easily run on modern setups. I liked 98 (",)
