Hi all, Been following PSX2 quite few years and never actually got the emulator working well...until PG arrive! Currently Playing FFX, getting stable FPS while on half occasion drop down to 20~30% FPS, except Hellfire Overdrive which i get like 1~2FPS when the aeon cast the big fireball <_<
my specs are:
Window XP Professional sp3
Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66Ghz
Intel 945GM Chipset( 950 Graphic Media Accelator)
Your pc is really weak, you can't run games with a decent speed

don't use linear filter in gsdx and always use native resolution or 512x512.
this helps on my eeepc to prevent a bottleneck of the GPU.
Using native resolution in GSDX slows down games from my experience.
@cain: that depend from grapich card. For weak grapic card, native res. Can help to gain fps because that have a limit performance but with high/strong grapich card especcialy with ATI HD3870 or above with auto clock that may reduce to gain fps.

>> Emulation speed differs for each game. There will be some you can run fast easily, but others will simply require more powerfull hardware <<.
Use gdsx 1.7 SSE3 with native resolution!

Are you all talking specifically about his 945GM chipset? Sorry for my ignorance, but I never thought a graphic card could affect that way a game's speed in PCSX2... I first thought that his processor was kind of bottlenecking him, but if it does speed shouldn't be that slow just because of it. I finished FFX almost entirely close to fullspeed -and even more in some areas- with a C2D T7100 1.8 GHz.
But I agree with everybody here, that chipset is not exactly what is needed to correctly run PCSX2.
