My i7 is clocked at 3.25Ghz, and I'm currently getting around 30-40 fps in FFX12 with an internal resolution of 1024x1024. Resident Evil 4 is even worse, whereas Persona 4 runs quite well. With native resolution, I get somewhere around 70 FPS. Also, when running software mode I get about 80 FPS. Since I'm utilising 7 threads, my cpu runs at about 95% load as opposed to 13-15% in hardware mode. Also, I tried the ZeroGS plugin with no luck.
I DO have a ***** graphics card though, a Radeon HD3650. This is because my computer is used mainly as a workstation for music production. Could this be what's slowing me down?

Yes. This is your problem, 100% sure and for certain. ATIs run FFXII very poorly (although FPS in-game improves after the opening scenes and tutorial).

Yeah, you're right the 3650 sucks.
Get a GTX275 or something. I mean, an i7 and a 3650.... What a bottleneck.

Well, with that graphics card your answer is no. Using the software AA should essentially do the same thing, which is why I suggested it.
So, to enable AA do I just select "Edge anti-aliasing (AA1)" ?
Yes. But don't expect a massive increase in image quality. It helps, but it's not the fix you are looking for as it's only basic AA.
ATI HD.3650 has lack of bandwith because only has ddr2 ram. That why you can not gain high res. Without sacrifice your cpu performance.

AA1 is sw mode only, and only when the game uses it.
