There isn't any reason FFX or kingdom hearts to be running that slow on your machine because of your CPU... If I had to guess at a glance, it's your GPU causing the most slowdowns...
On your PCSX2 window when the games slowdown is the CPU % at or above 90%? (again, PCSX2 window, NOT in the task manager) If so, your GPU is definitely causing the problem. Make sure to update your PCSX2 to beta revision 1888, turn off 8-bit textures in the GSDX menu, and use the native res option. You may also try the speed hack VU cycle steal, but that may cause as much slowdown as it fixes.
During the slowdowns the CPU in pcsx window is 95% all other times is at arround 65% i tried the first Speed hack and the native minus the 8 bit textures and now i can play the FFX, FFX-2 and so on.
Kingdom hearts 1,2 and Suikoden haven't yet tried them i will try and tell .
Final Fantasy XII stil is as slow a snail...
Then it's your GPU causing the slowdowns. Check 'native' in GSdx or use a lower internal res than the one you currently have set (or get a faster graphics card).
Which PCSX2 version are you using? The latest 1888 beta is quite faster than 0.9.6 so you might want to give that a try too
Well the ff x-2 is stil kinda slow, 35 fps
ffxii is rocking at 60fps
but sometimes give bsods.
ffx is flying
suikoden III also 40fps.
idk for kindom hearts yet
Yep, your GPU is the culprit. You need a better GPU. You can get a nice one for around $100+ that should run most games pretty well. Like the Nvidia Geforce 9800GT or the Geforce 250.

Beta 1888 really improved the speed for me, as playing FF12.
However, this new GSdx doesn't have pixel shader selection option. This was the thing that would get me amazing graphics back on 0.9.6, using Pixel Shader 3. Is there a way to config it in this new graphics plugin?
I'm in this system: Q8200 - 8600GT 256mb - 2GB 800mhz
Currently using GSdx 1873 and beta 1888.
Edit: I think I've figured it out. Disabling native, I achieve some great graphics, and even good speeds, but CPU meter goes beyond 90% all the time... What to do now?
Try a lower D3D internal res.
Core i5 3570k -- Geforce GTX 670 -- Windows 7 x64
That simply means that your graphics card can handle the extra load from the higher resolution fine..
