Pentium D's are not known to work well with pcsx2. I suggest easing up on the speedhacks as sometimes they break more than they fix (especially VU cycle-stealing). Posting your complete configurations would probably help with diagnosing any configuration problems.

Might wanna scrap that processor and get a core 2 duo clocking @ 2.8+ ghz if you can , oh and maybe a new video card.

Apart from updating PCSX2 to the latest beta, you should also get the latest revision of GSdx because that has more options to help speed and has been improved to get more speed in general. You should also try creating an ISO image of your original disc and run it through the Linuz Iso CDVD plugin.

That cpu is pretty slow for this game, even with the latest beta you may not get enough of a boost on it i'm afraid. Also the fact you can not use DX10 isnt gonna help you :/

Oh clicking on the little box next to native helps bump up the speed a little bit.

Try only using one or two speed hacks at a time. Don't set VU Cycle steal much higher than moderate.

Your graphics card isn't helping much, either. 8500 GT is below the recommended requirements for the emulator.
