Well firstly let me say Welcome! Next i should tell you that while it is Very possible for you to play Psx and N64 games Xbox and Ps2 emulation is usless, as neither on of them can play very mant commercial games and the playable games that are out there run very very slow and laggy even for todays computers. Your probably lookin at a good couple years before we see anything good coming from Ps2, Xbox and GC emulation. But as i said Psx and N64 is very possible ePSXe (psx) is amonge one of the best emus as well as Project64 (N64). You can download them at the main site Here (http://emulator-zone.com/). Again Welcome to EZ!!

It should be alright. i believe minimum sys. requirements are Win 95 i dont know why you would want to downgrade though.

This works for very few of my old games, V. Most of them need Dosbox or an interpreter.
