Its not fast enough. But the framerate would be close to playable in some 3D and most 2D games.

2D games such as naruto ultimate ninja series
3D games such as tekken4/5 but I'm not sure about 2.1GHz
I get 95% full speed with 2.6GHz running on windows7 DirectX and I have a 95ooGT card.

The recommended is a dual core @ 3Ghz+ Wink

Since you're on a laptop, do you know what kind of GPU you're running? If it's integrated, I'd give up PCSX2. Low speed CPU mixed with integrated GPU is asking for lag in PCSX2.

And yes, there are 2D games on the PS2 that just use some 3D sprites. Plenty of them Smile

The Phenom II's bang for buck... The i7's just expensive, but it's good.
AMD Phenom II 940 @ 3.6GHZ, 4GB PC8500 @ 1100MHZ, 4870x2 @ Stock.

edit: oops seems like the owner is mad... and ive added more info
<image here, but removed due im "deeplinking" it from main site, its

what you should get from the picture is:
1. P2 X4 940 score 7897 on 7zip test
2. Intel Core i7 920 score 12,832

AMD Phenom II X4 940 = $190
Intel Core i7 920 = $280

here's the price/performance ratio:
190/7897 = 0.024
280/12,832 = 0.0218

=> P2 X4 is win

But how about the SSE4, tri-channel mem, power efficiency, and DDR3 support?
its i7 the real winner is.
