GPU?

Also your CPU is too weak.

Try overclocking to around 3.6 ghz if your motherboard allows it. Also, what game(s) are you trying to play? What GSdx settings are you using? Any speedhacks tried?

It still most likely won't matter. Although, OP might play some of the easy on the cpu games.

1) i dont really like overclocking Sad im afraid im going to break it
2) i tried playing area 51, champions of norrath, and metropolismania 2, they all work but as soon as i start playing (after the title) they go down to 20 fps
3) i deleted the emulator (sadly) but i left that alone
4) yes i tried them, they dont work for me

my brother and i built this computer a few years ago, it might be time to upgrade :3

EDIT: i can use dolphin just fine tho, i would think it would put more of a strain on the computer, no?
please no hate i dont really know THAT much about computers, but i know some things

1. Overclocking is not going to break anything. It might make your CPU life shorter by a small amount, but if you are gonna upgrade anyway, what have you got to lose? As long as you don't adjust the CPU voltage, it's really very safe to overclock.

Even a newer processor like mine (AMD FX 6300) may need an overclock for PCSX2 which is ultra demanding. I have mine at 4.12ghz
