Extreme lag while playing most games.
Hi Im trying to play all my old favorite games from my childhood and im only able to play certain games in my list.

Games trying to play:
Twisted Metal Black
Twisted Metal Head On Extra Twisted
The Punisher
Test Drive
Tony Hawk's Underground 2
Resident Evil OutBreak 1 & 2
Resident Evil 4
ATV Quad Power Racing 2
ATV Off Road Fury 1&2
Big Mutha Truckers 2
NFS Underground 2

Games that will work for me:

Resident Evil OutBreak 1 & 2
Twisted Metal Black
Twisted Metal Head On Extra Twisted

All other games in my list will not work. Im either having extreme lag or graphical issues. In the list of games that dont work, im only averaging 15-20 fps. I really want to play Driv3r and NFS Underground 2. These two are my all time favorite ps2 games.

Computer Specs:
Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
AMD bulldozer quadcore 3.60Ghz
ATi XFX Radeon HD 6770 1GB
8gb DDR3 RipJawz Ram

PCSX2 Settings:
All settings default. I just installed the latest build r5423

Racing games are quite demanding most of the time.
And your CPU is unfortunately too weak for demanding games under pcsx2

try using recommended speedhacks + set ee cycle rate to 2 and Vu cycle stealing to 1
If you have gfx issues, software mode might fix them (F9). but since this mode requires more Raw power, I doubt you'll thus get playable speeds...

Best bet is to keep playing those games on your PS2 until you can afford an intel-based rig or wait for a new AMD architecture, with hopes that they won't fail this time...
CPU : AMD Ryzen 7 3800X
Mobo : Asus PRIME B450-PLUS
GPU : NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
RAM : 16 Go
TopGear, if you have a heatsink up to the job, you could probably also push that CPU to 4.2-4.5Ghz, and get a nice boost from that.
