Thats legal, but its not worth it. The computer wont be able to do it correctly. The whole game will lag ect. Too do this you need a emulator.

Yeah I do really have 96mb, but I have run programs that require 128mb w/ no problems. I do have a free slot, so if anybody is looking to get rid of a stick of 168 pin ram, pm me.

P.S. I can play on a computer with more ram.

The Xbox has a custom Intel processor that runs at 733mhz, 64mb of DDR RAM from Micron, and a 250mhz graphics chip codenamed XGPU (developed by nVIDIA and Microsoft). So he's not too far off.

but to emulate something, u need a system that greatly surpasses the original. plus, xbox games are coded to only work on the exact xbox hardware, that's why its so hard to have backwards compatability on the 360.

Yeah. You need a pretty powerful system to run some emulators.
