Best settings for MGS 3?
I'm new to emulation. Tho I have used them before to play my old games, this is the first time I have actually sat down and tried to optimize one. While my current set up has the PCSX2's native FPS counter reading 50-60fps, I'm still feeling like it is dropping lower than that at times. Also when I'm moving around, the screen has flashes of random colors. Any idea of how to minimize or eliminate these problems and/or better optimize my settings?

My Rig:

CPU: AMD FX-8120 OC 4.0GHz

GPU: Radeon HD6950 Sapphire 2GB OC 900/1350 (60% fan speed)

MOBO: MSI 990fxa-Gaming

PCSX2 version: 1.2.1

Possible explanations for lower in-game fps in comparison to emulation fps are:
1. You are using VU cycle stealing which fakes the fps counter
2. The ee of the ps2 is not strong enough to handle the game at this point. That's why the developer decoupled in-game fps and in-game time and introduce something like frameskip. As pcsx2 is in default configuration as accurate as possible you see the same slowdown. If you use EE cycle rate hack the emulated ee is weaker than the real ee which will enhance this effect.
3. <Something else but I have no idea what it is option>

What kind of settings do you use?
What are fps%/ee%/gs%/vu% values during slowdowns?
