I would probably chuck it into my Tualatin box, to replace the somewhat age-inappropriate GeForce FX 5600 card that's in there now.

Well compared to its predecessors, Dreamcast is mind blowing. 480p, VGA out, >30fps in lots of games.... Compared to N64 and PS1 = hearty laughter.
There is a lot of info over on Beyond3D about the old PowerVR hardware. There is at least one PowerVR engineer that hangs out there. The Neon 250 (PowerVR 250) and the DC (PowerVR CLX) are similar, but the DC has a number of significant advantages.

PowerVR was scalable, it can be one ISP with two TSPs combined. I was not aware such hardware existed outside of arcades.
