    i need one that doesn't take up very much processor power, i'm using nestopia right now, and it still stutters while playing roms.

    I think most emulators are going to take up most of the processor's resources. I use one called MacMAME but it is very limited and doesn't run right all the time.

    They're easy to find, but publically on OT isn't the right place to look. ;)

    Finding the right emulator on the other hand... :big grin:

    I bought a Dreamcast off eBay for $30. Came with 2 controllers and was in great condition. Head over to http://www.dcemulation.com/ and check out their Mac forums. There are many programs that will let you write a bootable CD filled with ROMS and emulator for the NES, Genesis, SNES and others.

    The DC has a lot of great games too and most can be found for less than $8 (some even in bundles).

    I was just wondering if people are finding torrents or just downloading roms off of sites.
