Thanks, I had a feeling my laptop wouldn't be able to run PS2 era games. Tbh I didn't even buy it for gaming, i just decided to get epsxe and pcsx2 on a whim.

your proc has about 1/4 the power recommended.. but folks have been able to eek by with processors that only have 2.5x the power. I'm sorry, but you're relegated to epsxe

Probably only the first 4 .Hack games(not GU).
I was able to reach 45fps on certain places on a much weaker hardware(Pentium 4 2.8GHz,6600GT,1GB ram)

Thanks everyone! vsub, I'll try the .hack games and see how it goes. scythefwd, it's perfectly ok with me to be "stuck"(as I put it) with PSX and earlier because there's loads of games to relive my childhood with.

Vsub.. his stp is barely over 400.. that p4 at 2.8 may have beat it still
