Star Ocean 3 Slight Lag
#1
Alright, so I'm sure these forums are plagued with a million similar threads, so I wanted to apologize and thank you for any assistance any of you give me in advance. I did look around for a bit, but I can never find anyone with an identical problem or solution to my own, so here I am.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

My problem isn't "that" major, I run at a steady 50 - 60 FPS, when it's at 60 things seem fine, but when it comes to populated area's, or large places with lots of room, my FPS tends to drop to around 50 and the lag is rather noticable. I'm simply trying to find a few settings I can edit or plugins I can use, or anything (I'm a bit of a novice with this ps2 emulator), that would reduce my overall lag during gameplay and speed things up. I'll list my settings below, including dxdiag information. Thanks!

I see, sorry for the naive question, but what part exactly would I have to upgrade to get more Mhz?

Right.
You already have nice hardware but it lacks the last bit of punch.
Check google for guides on slightly overclocking your i7 920.

Aye, I'll look into overclocking, I've just heard it can mess things up a bit if it gets overheated and all that, but if it's my only viable option, I'll look into it and give it a go.

Thanks for the advice.

the i7 voltage affects the temps mostly
the stock vid for an i7 920 is 0.965-1.25v. the vdroop spec sets 1.25v as the maximum with it running anywere between the 2 values i stated on stock+auto

stock cooling should be limited to overclocking around the maximum vid, so setting the voltage to 1.25 and enabling load line calibration/disabling vdroop stabilise the voltage fluctuations.
