Just started this whole emulating thing today so im still pretty new to all this. I did read the english guide and set all the settings to the best of my knowledge and from what i understand is that GSdx is the bees knees. Sadly PCSX2 crashes upon loading anything running as GSdx but will start when i go under ZeroGS.
My question is how much more or less GSdx compares to ZeroGS and should i worry if my computer cant use GSdx. Where im coming from is that i have a high end computer so id like all the features and better quality from GSdx since thats what its geared towards. Just wondering if im doing anything wrong or its my PC....

4G of DD3-1600 Memory
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1G
AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition

Thank in advance for your help.
what error message do you exactly get ?
any screenshot ?
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go
Real hardware (GPU) AA is hidden in GSdx. It has to be enabled via a hacks flag in the GSdx.ini.
It's hidden because it causes excessive memory usage, possibly crashing games fast.
Just set scaling to x3 and make sure that "Native" is not ticked.
This way you'll get a great looking FF12 and there shouldn't be any crashes.

There's stuff money can't buy.
Stuff like an effective GS cache for GSdx that's not slow and doesn't waste memory.
Figured out most of my issues, fixed the windowed issue by going into the emulation settings and went to the GS window and set it at 16:9 and enabled default to fullscreen mode on open and this got the scaling working (Im guessing so since the game itself scaled 3x at 640x480 should be giving me 1920x1080 which has left surprisingly hardly any jaggies at all). It seems that enabling the AA option in the hacked settings at all prevents the PS2 emulation itself from starting rather than the game itself (wont even go to the PS2 startup clip thingie) so im hoping in time to figure that out.
Heading off to work for the time being but when i get home i may try scaling it at 4 to 5x rather than 3x and see if that smooths the rest of the almost nonexistant jaggies. This emulator is simply amazing and id like to thank this site and its coders/modders w/e you may be called for doing such a nice thing for the PS2 playing community <:3.
AA or not ill be enjoying my FFXII UNDUB (flipping hate english dubs of FF games) with my english subtitles <;D
So no one out there has a tip on a way to make the AA work??? I was able to find some guides on using nvidia cards "nhancer" to force the AA but sadly I have a ATI card and the nvidia route can only use with DX9 settings....
Also stumbled upon this issue with disabling the frame limiter, it gives me a beefy framerate but the game looks like its running at 100x speed. Any way of keeping the frame limiter off and retaining the framerate without the turbo boost in game speed?

Don't disable the frame limiter then, PS2 games run at 60FPS not higher.
