your GPU should be enough as long as you don't push gsdx internal res too high
now, your CPU will hold you back for many games since 2.7 ghz may not be enough for the most intensive ones.
Plus, MTVU hack from latest SVN will be unefficient most of the time, since you have only 2 cores.

Anyways, try latest SVN, use recommended speedhacks, set ee cycle rate to 1, and try enabling MTVU hack too.
but don't expect miracles...
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge

Mine says MVu block hack, is that the same thing? So svu is just a different version of pcsx2, because I got v0.9.8 and when I download and open that one it says v0.9.9.5342 (svn) Jul24 2012

Oh and would you help in upgrading should upgrade my whole computer or upgrade a new graphics card? If I buy new graphics card I will buy a GTX 560 TI and if I buy a new computer upgrade I will make my own very cheap computer here is the spec list:

ASUS
P8Z68 DELUXE LGA 1155 Z68 ATX Intel Motherboard:

Intel
Core i3 2100 LGA 1155 3.1GHz Boxed Processor:

Samsung
2GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) CL11 Desktop Memory Module:
http://www.microcenter.com/single_produc...id=0380717

I will use my own drive from my old computer.
If I have some money left I might buy a 6GB ram since I know no one ever use other 4GB for a game computer... or upgrade to intel core i5 depends how much money I have left. I will be having $220 for build. So new computer build or new graphics cards? I know that GTX 560 are like $280 but I want to build a computer for $220 or more if I have to.

i would always recomend to upgrade if you're willing too sooner or later you're gonna upgrade and no Speed hack or improvement will stop that

no it's not MVu block hack did you downloaded the new version known as SVN in the link above it's only available there

Woah, did the block hack get removed? Never noticed that before.

Anyway, I'd try for an i5 minimum. Seems to be all the rage with the kids these days.

mVU Flag Hack is the same thing I'm pretty sure - just renamed.

Umm my pcsx2 screen is black Blink like it was before. It gets pass the intro but than black screen pcsx2. I don't get it. My CPU usage went down from 100% to around %50 with the svn it went down with the older version it was at %100 and now its around %50 with svn one. But my game screen is still black o.0
