i'm trying to emulate FFX, but it seems that my cpu is doing all of the rendering (100% load) and my graphics card (overclocked ATI 2400) does almost nothing (20 % load). is there a way that i can make my graphics card do the 3d rendering?
Direct3D 10 mode puts more use on the CPU so that's part of it. Specs of your CPU are necessary for any real advice/help.

i have an intel 1.8Ghz. dual core processor, 2GB of memory, overclocked ATI 2400 256Mb graphics card with a core clock of 830 and a memory clock of 590, 7,200 rpm hdd.
hope thats enough info.
That's normal. The GPU doesn't offload more than the graphics rendering, the emulation itself is incredibly CPU intensive.
