I'm kinda new to emulation of the PSX and N64. Since it seems video and sound plug-ins are needed for emulation, would I need certain plug-ins to run games if I'm stuck using Integrated graphics?

As far as I know I'm OpenGL compatible and have a Celeron 2.6 Ghz processor with 256MB RAM

Uhm, yes. The plug-ins are to emulate the sound and video hardware of the emulated systems. Integrated video cards are usually slow as molasses, but generally Direct-X if not OpenGL compatible.

Just try a lot of them and see what works best. With N64 I kinda switch around, but with PSX I generally always use Pete's Plug-Ins...Pete is practically a PSX emulation god.

For PSX emulation I would recommend ePSXe. You need to download a BIOS file, but a simple google search of "ePSXe bios" will yield your desired results. Usually you should find the plugins for sound and video being served on the same download page the bios.
<img src=smilies/erm.gif> For N64, use PJ64. Very compatible, and the plugins are included in the download. If you get graphics errors, look for glide wrappers and something called e-voodoo to place in your pj64 plugins dir.

Uh...E-Voodoo is a glide wrapper...(something allowing you to run a program, game, whatever that uses Glide if your PC doesn't support Glide, most PC Graphic cards these days do NOT support Glide) if you see graphics errors that are caused by your PC not supporting Glide without one, then another option is to not use a plug-in utilising the Glide. <img src=smilies/erm.gif>
