I'm about to take a new configuration for PCSX2:

Amd Phenom 965
4890 Vapor-X

But I ask myself three questions:

I lost a lot by using SSE2 instead SSE4?

The resolution depends on the processor or CG (D3D internal resolution)?

Should I take a DirectX 11 GPU or you do not plan to use advanced DX11?

Currently DX11 mode doesn't hold any advantages over DX10 mode, and it's recommended you stay with DX10. However, in the future they will develop DX11 mode and you *may* get more performance, even if you use a DX10 card (as I'm told).

Resolution depends more on video card, specifically the amount of RAM on the video card I think (to load the textures).
The 4870 1GB will be enough to put in play in 1020 * 1280 * see?

The games I want to see turn are KH1, 2, FFX, FFXII ... Budokai Tenkaichi 3 ...

So you advise me a 5770?. (No 5870).
The main advantages of DX11, in theory, will be to multi-core CPUs since it'll have a more efficient threading model. I'm not sure what differences there are at the hardware/video card level, but those are probably less significant than it being able to utilize more cores of the main cpu.

So for emulation in general (PCSX2, PCSX, Dolphin) The DX11 will not determine?

I want to buy a GC so that it takes both to emulate for my PC games.

(Since I like to rediscover my old games pushed resolution version, FPS too).
