You're going to want to get a faster pc as it's really far too weak for pcsx2

Next upgrade is a new CPU. But I got it running a few games pretty decent. Nothing to overpowering. Any suggestions considering what I have in it.

Well, make sure you're using the SSSE3 version of GSdx, under Config -> Plugin/BIOS Selector. Turning off use 8-bit textures(under GSdx plugin settings) can sometimes reduce cpu load a little.

Other than the EE and VU cycle hacks, and MTVU(which can increase performance on a dual core), there isn't much else you can do to increase performance.

Actually, you could probably overclock that thing pretty easily. I used to have an E4500 and I ran it at 3GHz instead of the stock 2.2GHz. It shouldn't be too hard to hit at least 2.8GHz, which is almost 30% higher than stock.
Im not seeing anything about 8 bit.

But thank you BTW for your response dogen!

Just realized I'm using an out of date version of pcsx2, but the 8-bit texture option is still there.

Whoops. Had the wrong plugin, MY bad.

Oh and I dont think my MOBO allows for OC. The BIOS didnt have it as an option.
Try saikis low end dual core guide. He also has the same processor, you can ask him to have a rough idea on how well the processor will perform in pcsx2. Though, I wouldn't expect much.
We're supposed to be working as a team, if we aren't helping and suggesting things to each other, we aren't working as a team.

Saikis is about as good as its gonna get till I get my new CPU

Thank everybody!
