Hi,this is my first post. I wanna know if the i7 2600 is good enough to play pcsx2 and dolphin games at full speed. I don't have a p67 or z68 mobo, so I can't over clock, so there's no point in buying a k series CPU. The processor runs on 3.4 ghz, will I be able to play games like dark cloud, fFx, ffxii, dq 8, xenosaga and suikoden v at max speed?

Yes its good enough for pcsx2 as far you have a decent GPU. All of the games should run at good playable speed. I can get fullspeed with them except Dark Cloud which is a GPU Demanding. (50 -55 fps in Dark Cloud)
Whats your GPU?

It's still very fast @ stock,
and some Turbo Boost will help.
I know Xenosaga can be troublesome at times (I think allowing 8-bit textures helps at times).
I think Suikoden 5 may be heavy at times,
but I'd be willing to bet they would be totally playable.
Especially if you (need to) tweak a few things, like some Speedhacks or the 8-bit textures.
What's up with your GPU, buddy?
Is that the one in your sig, or the one in your profile...?
I'd guess it must be the HD 4650,
and possibly a DDR2 unit,
if Dark Cloud gets limited by it...
(... or should I be asking what res that's at...?)
One last question, will I be able to play xenosaga 1, 2 and 3 at full speed? Btw, at what speed does xenosaga run on ps2?
It runs at 60 fps because Xenosaga games are from NTSC-U or NTSC-J. I have all the NTSC-U Versions.
