How to get Pcsx2 to run smoothly on my pc?
#1
Ok i had tried pcsx2 a while back on my pc and on the one game i tried(kingdom hearts 2)was fine in the menu,but when i try to start a new game the fps then dropped to like 5fps.

My pc is specs:
Core 2 Quad Q9450
4GB of DDR2 1066Mhz
EVGA GTX 460 SE 1GB
old 320GB IDE hard drive

I don't remember what verison i was using or what plugins and settings i was using.

What would be the best verison,plugins and settings to use for my pc?

How old is this PC...Smile
It seems a little weak for PCSX2 to me, but you can always try speedhacks.
AMD Phenom II X4 975 BE OC 4.0 GHz, Corsair Hydro H70
AMD Radeon HD 6990 OC, Accelero Twin Turbo
ASUS Crosshair V Formula 990FX
OCZ Revodrive 3 X2 240 Gb
16 Gb G.Skill 1833 MHz

23 PS2's

I am still trying to get the pc ready(last time i tried pcsx2 was when this was my main pc),like testing to make sure it is stable,and won't crash if it is left on for a while,but i while try those things when i can.

What is the best verrison to use? And what are the best plugins to use with it?

AFAIK the lates revision is the best, if not, then the latest stable version (PCSX2 1.0.0).
You can see the best settings/plugins in the configuration guide.

Well i have a good main rig that i bought back in January which i do my pc gaming on and i can run pcsx2 just fine,but this pc is my old rig and i was demoting it to being a HTPC,which is going to be hooked to my tv in the living room,and i was hoping to get that running smoothly so i can have my PS2 is my bedroom,plus right now with stuff that is going on i can't afford to upgrade the pc i will be using for this,plus any upgrade on it is not really worth the money.

Hey all, just here to get a question answered, since you guys all seem to have some knowledge on the matter:

I have a Lenovo Y570 which should be more than capable of running PCSX2 and Kingdom hearts 2 Final mix, but it goes slow-mo all the time, even when running my Nvidia 550M GPU. Anyone can help?
