Everytime I use PCSX2, it runs pretty slow on some games, and the sound is like its in slow motion, can anyone help me set it up?

Thanks,

Simmo.
that CPU is phased-out now even OCing that thing won't help neither.
time to get the 2nd gen intel-i now.
also GPU is also phased-out get the Ati HD68??~above.

So there isn't any plugins i can use to try and speed things up?

What about an E8500/E8600 CPU?
Unfortunately the E4400 is insufficient to run PCSX2 at reasonable speeds.
E8500/8600 with max oc 3.8-4.0 GHz can ran alot of games at good speeds however these CPUs are old and not recommended at this time.
You can get some lower-end sandy bridges i5 2300, 2400 ...etc with decent motherboard and a GTS 450/HD5770 at least and get some nice speeds out of PCSX2.

How much are we looking at for these then?
