I think im using PCSX2 1.2.1 (r5875)
I was playing Persona 3 FES. I was getting 60 fps in some areas and sometimes in conversations it would drop to 40-50 fps. I was wondering if getting a graphics card would help keep it in 60 fps most of the time.

CPU is the bottleneck there, not your GPU.

It kinda sucks that you can't benefit from the MTVU speedhack either since it's a dual-core CPU.

Yes. That's what we've been telling you. Your CPU is the problem.

Normally we could tell you try out the MTVU speedhack, but you can't benefit from that with a dualcore CPU like the A6-6400, on top of that the single core performance isn't all that good either.

Thanks for the help.
What CPU would you recommend?

Honestly I've never been a fan of AMD CPUs so my recommendation would always be to go for an Intel CPU instead, especially for emulation & core performance lol. But that'd involve getting a new motherboard too.
