Those aren't even that hard to run fast...

Sorry to be so arrogant,
but I can't help but feel I have had ~the fastest processor realistically
for a while, and since testing with native res is included (among other things), I'd say my GPU is certainly substantial enough for anything that's not broken in some way.
I can assure you--
Buy what you want,
you would still (eventually) come across games that won't run perfectly.
BTW - Are games that are labeled as "Playable",
yet not able to reach/keep full speed 100% of the time,
due to still being "broken in some way",
to be considered a part of "all games" or not...?
This always gets so complicated with opinions floating around.

Now you're getting realistic
"All games at full speed 100% of the time" is not truely possible.
Hard to say where the exact numbers sit,
but shooting for anything more than "the most possible" would be kinda moot if you just get the fastest thing currently available.
Get your unlocked Core i, and clock it as high as you can.
Get the GeForce GTX 680, not the GTX 690.
This is what you want for the best possible from PCSX2.
