Cheapest rig for flawless PCSX2
Could someone recommend me some memory,a motherboard,a processor, and a GPU i should buy to run this emulator flawlessly? I'm looking for something really cheap because i am extremely poor but i believe its time to upgrade my 5-7 year old(i don't remember but i know its at least 5 years old)radeon x700... and my motherboard only has an AGP slot hehe. so i need new everything basically.

How much can you spent?

Based on the amount you can afford, we can tell you the best config.
try my siggy...LCD or CRT monitor is not included on my rig.
Main Hub:i5-4670(3.4Ghz Factory Clocked),ATi Radeon HD7770(GDDR5+128-bit+1GB),Win 10 SL(x64),ASUS H8M-E,8GB DDR3 RAM
C2DE5200 1GBRAM (800 MHz not the cheapest one, better be Hunix or Samsung) ASUS P5KPL-AM (SE) GF8600GT (9600GSO is newer) -100% cheapest rig 70$+15$+45$+50$+CASE~50$+HDD~50$=280$
if u may want to use it for smth else, then consider buying 2Gb ram and better video
Enter bios, set FSB to 280, RAM to 667 and enjoy 3.5 GHz with SSSE3 support, price/quality ownz
(i made 3 or 4 PCs like this for my friends - always perfect Overclocking)

your CPU is twice expensive
Finished on PCSX2: FFX, KH, DMC, GoW, SoC, MGS3
Cheapest rig = actual PS2.
mine isn't flawless, but it's good $700usd, inc. monitor

gpu = $60 on
Some games just won't play flawlessly on PCSX2, at least for now.

Tenow's recommandation will allow you to play a lot of games almost flawlessly.
Most flawless experience would be on your ps2 which you dump your bios from, but a good pc can handle most games with good fps.
q6600 OC @ 3.3Ghz, 4gb ddr2 ram, nvidia gtx 260, 2x 1 tb hard disk
how much cash do you have
I'm running a Core 2 Duo 2.53 Ghz, Corsair 3 GB 800 Mhz DDR2 RAM, GeForce 8600 256 MB Ubuntu 9.04, and I get 35-45 FPS on most games, with speed hacks enabled to the point of not affecting compatibility much. I'd imagine bumping the graphics card up alone would help significantly, as would using Windows instead of Linux. Graphics card-wise, I'd suggest a GTS 250, which will run you about $150.
