CPU and GPU are awesome. I don't think pcsx2 uses GPU as much as just PC games. If your system is OEM, that would suck because you can't overclock the CPU. If you OC, you probably can get that thing @ least 4.0 GHz enabling you to play most games smoothly.

Other than that, just DL the latest pcsx2 client and update plugins. Trial and Error settings such as speed hacks, etc....

You probably could get away with no speed hacks with a little overclocking. Your system is quite the powerhouse.

yeah but i dont think its my system i think the emulator slows me down. im running with almost 100 fps constantly but still its like laggy lol idk how to explain it. and when i try to lmit fps it just makes it too slow. sorrta dissapointed i thought i would be able to run shadow of the colossus no problem

Care to share your settings? Why would you want 100fps anyways; it'd be too fast for me.

Shadow of the Colossus runs pretty badly for everyone. It's one of the most demanding games as it really maxes out the PS2's capabilities.

Also, the FPS counter in the bar of the menus is not reliable. SotC also has a built in frameskipping mechanism, so while the game will be running at full speed, it will feel choppy and start to look more like a slide show. This should only happen during either very intensive scenes during the battles, or when you are viewing a large, open landscape with the lighting bloom features at full effect. Those seem to be the biggest causes of slowdown from my playing experience with that game.

exactly whats happened to me. when u have to do the light thing u can barely see and when u see the vast landscape. most of the other game runs really smooth. i havent fought a boss yet but im guessing it wont be much different from ur experience

Considering your rig is up to snuff, don't use any hacks other than VU cycle stealing with the latest beta (you shouldn't need to go higher than moderate here) and maybe up to x2 on the EE hack.

To alleviate the overbloom effect, uncheck the Native box for D3D internal res and set it to at least 1024x1024. Be sure to also grab the latest version of GSDX.
