I get no black screen at all with "latest GDSX rev" and "latest PCSX2 BETA". They only problem I faced is slow on Menu, Dungeon Map and battle (all of this consume 95% and above my GPU). Regarding the full FPS your CPU still not very enough though (my personal opinion). You can get some speed with VU cycle Stealing hack.
Dx10 (Hardware) [all box checked]
well from what I know Dx10 is only for Windows Vista or am I wrong???
I think only solution might really be getting a new PC XD
Dx10 is only for Vista+, yes.
dx10 shouldnt make that much of a difference in this case, just make sure you have logarithmic z ticked, everything else should be irrelivant. Software mode DX9 will give the same effect as directx 10, just obviously slower and no internal resolution options.
funny thing, yep, the game runs slighty better with the settings you gave me, but still black spots (and need to guess where the road goes XD)
funny things is, is now other games run better, thx for the help ^^

"You can get some speed with VU cycle Stealing hack."
Don't do this. This speed hack has negative effects with these games, such as in-game slowdowns. At "moderated" the problems start. It's better to use the first microVU speedhack and nothing else, everything else does nothing/slowdowns the game.
Delete al the inis folder and reconfigure, something's ***** up there, or maybe your GPU is too weak to even load everything right.
Regarding speed, you won't get enjoyable speeds with that setup, this game needs a very good computer and still won't be 60 fps EVERYWHERE, in mine, firstname.lastname@example.org ghz, hd4870, 2gb ram, vista, DX10 some places still get very slow, for example, too much monsters on-screen, BIG-ASS monsters, abuse of frame buffer, etc. If you get slowdowns at these relatively simple scenes, I'm afraid you're out of luck. Better play it in your PS2 or you wont have fun.
Sorry to Hijack thread, But I too am having a similar problem even with "logarithmic z" ticked.
AMD Athlon 62 X2 Dual
Core Processor 6000+
3 Ghz, 3 Gig of Ram.
NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT
GDdx 1476 (MSVC 15.00, SSe2) 0.1.15
Aspect Ratio 4:3
Default Cycle Rate.
Also in CPU Confug, It says my AMD has Features:
MMX, SSE,SSE2, SSE3 - But I cant use SSE3 - Perhaps that would help me get past this black backround Problem?
Any recommendations of guess's of how the problem could be resolved would be much appreciates, since im new to this program.

Your cpu can use SSE3, the problem is GSdx's plugin is SSSE3 and it wouldnt help you anyway as the SSSE3 and SSE4.1 are meant for speed only :P
