Just recently, I have been trying to play Final Fantasy X, and for the life of me, I just cannot get it to run at 50-60 FPS. I mean, when the game starts, it will play at 60FPS as it goes through the beginning credits, but once it shows the beginning videos, it drops to 30-40FPS dramatically. I haven't tried any other games, but I will soon...
Here are my specs:
AMD Phenom Quad-Core Processor at 2.5GHz (stock)
4GB of RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4200
Windows 7 64-bit
Version of PCSX2:
Settings are all default
Games are being ran by ISO
Any help is appreciated!
In order to help you further with your problem, please make sure the following are all provided.
- Your hardware specs - CPU, Graphics Card, Memory, Operating System.
- The version of PCSX2 you are using.
- Any non default settings you are using.
- What games you are trying to play and if you are playing them from ISO or DVD.
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go
That graphics card is very weak, configure GSdx and tick 'native' there. Also enable all speed hacks labeled as 'recommended'
1. Your Phenom, has got to get some more speed, at least 3GHz will give something, at least 3.4GHz assuming your board is NOT OEM and is overclockable.. sorry Phenoms just don't have the clock for clock power at that speed (neither does Intel at that speed) for current PS2 emulation. If thats a Phenom I my laptop @ 2.4GHz has more power than your desktop.
2. For a good affordable videocard look for the HD 5670, where I am its $80 or less. That will run light years around that onboard graphics.

The GT 240 is undoubtably more powerful with it's GDDR5 data rate (roughly twice the bandwidth).
(There are also GDDR5 variations of the HD 5670.)
