so I'm new to PCSX2 and I finally have everything downloaded and set up right (to my knowledge) but everytime i try to execute or run a game i get one message that says "pixel shader version is to low" then another that says "the GS plugin failed to open/initialize"
the first time i got pcsx2 started it made me update my directx but now im just getting this and don't know how to fix it cause when i configure my graphics there is nothing in the dropbox for pixelshader.
pc specs ?
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz

It means that your video card doesn't support Pixel Shader 2 which is the minimum requirement to use ZeroGS/GSdx.
There is one really old version of GSdx which will allow you to play on pcsx2 but most likely you'll have a lot of graphical problems,crashing,freezing and a lot slower speed compared to the current GSdx
Actually I forget about ZZOgl.You can use that plugin even if you don't have Pixel Shader 2(he uses OGL)
could you please tell me where to get this plugin and how to use it or where i could find out how?
