Mac LC 475 vs Centris 610 vs PowerMac

I am interested in upgrading our computers in the lab.  We are looking to
buy either a Mac LC 475 with Ethernet card, Centris 610 or PowerMac 6100. 
The PowerMac 6100 is slightly more expensive.
We are a molecular biology lab and want to run the following programs:

    Paup 3.1.1
    ABI SeqEd
    Aldus Photoshop
    Microsoft Excel
Will the PowerMac run these programs in emulation mode?  And, if yes, will
it run quicker than the regular Mac with the Motorola chip?

Thanks in advance.
