New, need help with settings DQ8

I just found out about this emulator and am excited to play around with it. I own a copy of Dragon Quest 8 still and have a backup iso on my computer already.

With the standard settings, it starts the game up with no issues and I average 59-60fps. I would like to test out and get the best settings for this game but I am confused running through the settings.

Here is my log:

I did some searches and people are talking about 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x. Not sure what that is, but seems to relate to quality of emulation?

Thanks in advance.
