Try overclock your cpu to 3ghz at least, or higher than that for playing pcsx2 emulation in good speed.

No, that is not necassary, your gpu is good enough but make sure you do not setting too high in internal res. Gsdx plugin. Pcsx2 is more cpu dependant and good gpu (support directx.10 and ps.3) is needed too.

not good.
ive used the emualtor on vista 32 and 64bit editions
it will be much slower on 64bit edition.
with my 32bit vista, i always had 100% game speed, but with 64, 50-70% only

n3ziniuka5: Local to you issue then.
It runs the exact same speed here on Vista32 and Vista64.

Dertheante: Sounds like an ok system, it'll run many games fullspeed Smile

google your cpu and overclocking it; there should be plenty of useful information to help you out. the other information to be aware of is your Motherboard and its BIOS.

RAM : Corsair Vengeance 8x8GB 1603MHz 1.60v

You'll be fine with 2.8 Ghz of processor... heck I got 3.2 Ghz and no slowdows for games like FFX or FFXII... the only game that has 50 fps is Dragon Quest 8 and thats on the world map.... the PSX2 emulator is a pretty robust piece of work. If your stuck with the stock cpu cooler you might want to get a new one. Get a Noctua its pretty well engineered keeps your cpu and nearby components cool.
