How close ARE we?
#1
How far away is the prospect of full emulation capabilities for the PCSX2. I know not every game will work perfectly (I'm pretty sure that that has only been achieved for 4th gen at this point.) But when will the biggest name games probably be emulated by the system on most peoples computer? Is that even a possible objective?

the most popular ps2 games already work with the emu.
but since you're saying "most peoples computers", well all we have to do is wait a few years till 'most people' have good enough computers to run the games.

the emulator will never run nicely on old hardware like a pentium 4 pc.

there's your problem , the amd and the ati Wink specially the ati unfortunately , people forget that in some games they do need a nice pc ( fat beast with Lots of GHz ( like the ones you see on the speed leaderboards Tongue ) and an Nvidia ( seems that the ps2 is more nvidia friendly )

And neither on any athlonx2 cpu (the 6000+ when overclocked may be considered "ok").
Time to upgrade, cotton Tongue2

Don't forget that these chips are years old in design, that's why I quoted cottons post Wink

I wish to refute that statement. I have a P4* that runs PCSX2 better than my Core i7.

** Yes I am aware of how dangerous this is.

sry. Maybe you should turn your pc "on" for usage.

I'd post pics, but I'm deathly afraid of approaching it while it's on. One of these days something is going to break, and the whole rig will explode.

To get back on topic:
Keep doing little upgrades, and you should have no problem running PCSX2 for years. $300 a year gets you a very nice video card and CPU if you shop around for deals, if you have the budget for it.
