Just started playing Jak 3. The game starts up fine and everything, and besides minor graphics hiccups it works pretty well, it's just that I can't play at anything higher than 30 fps. Everybody is moving and talking in slow motion. I've been reading some of the stickied threads and it seems slow gameplay is not all that uncommon, I just wanted to make sure it isn't that I did something wrong or if my computer just isn't powerful enough.
Windows 7 64bit (bootcamp from mac)
intel i7-2720QM CPU @ 2.20 GHz
AMD Radeon HD 6750 graphics card
It might be my graphics card, now that I think about it.

kindly install CoreTemp and run CoreTemp and pcsx2 simeontenously as soon the game slowwed down. show us the temps.
if you haved other programs running better close it.

I think it's safe to say in all cases when a game doesn't run as fast as you'd like, your PC is just too slow to run the game. Just copy and paste this into the next thousand threads about games running too slow.
You can enable the speed hacks that have "recommended" near their name, but that will only get you so far. In the end, you just need a faster processor/PC.

Can anyone tell me what this GC% thing is? I've been tinkering around with the settings for the emulator to see if I can speed it up and I couldn't find anything on the pcsx2 website that explicitly says what GC% represents.
Also, I know this is the PC forum, but do you think if I manage to get the emulator to work on my mac side that it will perform better (given that mac is my machine's native OS)?
Thanks in advance.
