Easy one for me

DK cab with DK, DK junior and DK3
Galaga cab with Galaga, Galaga 88 and Gaplus

Hope that's not cheating :)

1. DK
2. original Robotron cab with a multi-Williams PCB and CP
2. original Pac Man cab with a multi-Pac PCB

You said 2, but the Pac Man cab doesn't count because the game is a piece of shit.  <Pigger>

Love Donkey Kong 3, but the transition from MAME to arcade is easy.  So I'd go with games you'd need the Arcade to be good at.
1. Robotron
2. Missile Command

These are 2 of the best looking arcade cabinets.  If I'm going to have to pick 2 classic games to sit in a house, that will eventually be mastered regardless of what they are, might as well get the 2 best looking ones.

I actually have only two classic arcade machines in my apartment and I really don't have any room for more.  I have Galaga 88 and a Donkey Kong cabaret.  Honestly. I don't think I would swap either out.  Would be cool to have a Robotron though...
