With that GPU I doubt you'll get playable speeds.

I reccomend getting a new graphics card or stick to playing games on your ps2
System Specs
CPU:AMD FX 8350 3.5ghz turbo to 4ghz
GPU: Sapphire HD 7750 GDDR5
MOBO:Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Rev 5.0
RAM: 8GB
OS:Windows 8.1 64 Bit

With any recent graphics card you would be able to play 'some' games, but not many, full speed.
OS: Linux Mint 17.2 64 bit (occasional Antergos/Arch user)
(I am no longer a Windows user)
CPU: Intel Pentium G3258
GPU: Nvidia GTX 650 Ti

i see loads of people asking the same question

so my advice is, just try it, you've nothing to loose Smile

remember you will need to dump your bios from your ps2 link here or here



DO NOT ask where to get the bios in the PCSX2 forum, because it's against the rules


this emulator is what prompted me to upgrade my pc to what i have now, as my previous pc could only achieve 4 or 5 frames a second Blush

this link is my new cpu vs my older version
http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-92...on-XP-3000 (that site doesn't include the motherboard ,graphics card or memory)

xp is ok ,but just doesn't have the features that win 7 has, so you might want to upgrade to win 7 or 8 in the future

is it worth downloading?

hell yes ,
i've enjoyed playing my games again on my pc with savestates(my ps2 is in need of repair but still works)

anyways as said just try it Biggrin
Not sure what graphics card you have, it's memory bandwidth,
it's temperature, fan speed, what pixel shader it has
try TechPowerUp's gpu-z

Not sure what your cpu is try cpu-z
(hint click on the highlighted links Biggrin)

To call it an integrated graphics is nearly an insult to integrated graphics... The thing is hardly DX9 compliant (even though it claims DX10 compatibility, it would certainly give you all sorts of broken graphics if you tried). If you had a faster quad core, you might even be better off using software mode in most games.
