For PCSX2, this has all you need: http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-Will-PCSX...y-computer
PC games need a faster graphics card in general so a 460GTX along with a nicely clocked quad core will do both jobs fine

Let's see.. a 600watts psu, ATI 5770 or GTX 460, some LGA 775 board that's ASUS (good overclocking), E8400 (if you're going for quadcore, get Q9550 or Q6600 both very good overclockers). I'd go with Noctua U12P SE2 cpu heatsink just cause its a bang for the buck and functions very nicely for an air cooler. For case... Antec 600 is probably the most budget midtower with good space and cooling for around 60-80bucks. Though calculating all the cost w/o including RAM... 450-460 bucks can only build a PC for work use only.

You can use your old ddr2 ram with this am3/am2+ mobo.

Now the PSU comes into question. Do you have a 500watt+ PSU already?

This is what I got with all components. No idea if you have any spare components like ram from another computer (make sure its ddr2), a dvd drive, or hard drive but that can help save a little money. This is the best I could come up with. The GPU should be good enough for native res to HD on most games and med-high graphics on normal pc games. The processor which is what is most important for pcsx2 I wouldn't skimp out on. The board has good overclocking as I read so you can get that to 4 ghz and games will work very well and maybe a decent overclock on the card. RAM you can add in the future if you need more (don't go for 2 GB as Windows uses that by itself). It's $250 over your budget, I wouldn't go with anything less for the uses you have in mind. I suggest wait a little while until you have more to spend.

That's a horrible build with outdated hardware.
And way above his budget.

The 750watts psu is overated, he only needs a 600watts. And yeah... outdated hardware.
