I have been looking for a cheap dos computer for old games, and someone suggested a raspberry pi. Is it possible?

No, No windows platform supports ARM CPU's, they only support X86. The RPi is a low power ARM, this is the secret to its low power consumption. The best you could do is run DOS-BOX and maybe get some good results

Old pc for dos games? Plenty of those in garbage... not even too old.
Apart from that, not to mention it needs at least a dual core and 1gb of RAM if I remember. And installing would be a pain

Just get Linux on it (the RasPI), it is the only reasonable thing you can run on it. From there, DOSbox, SNES, NES, Game Boy. It might be able to do n64 or PS1 games.
