2D Fighting Games not up to par...

I have a small assortment of 2D fighters. Come this weekend I will be upgrading to Windows2K. This will not allow me to use VGS, my default fighter emu which runs them perfectly. So I went to my next favorite emu ePSXe. I've tried every single configuration with every plugin available, and the only way my 2D fighters will run smoothly is with the music turned off. Here are my stats:

900mhz AMD Athlon
GeForce 2 w/ 64 megs
640 ram
40X Phillips DVD Drive
Windows Me

I dont think this is related to my comp stats cause it can handle most anything. Any emu says that if you have a GeForce, that you should use an OpenGL Plugin. These plugins for some reason give me the worst performance out of them all. D3D plugins give me the best. Go figure.

Any help on this matter is greatly appreciated.

I hate to be plugging my plugin here, but you might want to try NextGL v1.2. The 2D games seem to be very fast and your fighting games might work better :) Tell me how it goes if you decide to use it!
Not true. My plugin runs Mega Man X4 <b><i>A LOT</i></b> faster than Pete's Soft GPU under the same conditions. And yes, I do have proof to backup this claim if someone needs it :)
Just keep in mind that there are some minor bugs in the texture caching when used with 3D triangles :)
Hey Adair! I didn't notice your post until just now :) Weird how that worked out! ...
Also, you'll want to make sure that you get the self install drivers. From my experience, it's not a good idea to get the auto install ones... They some how corrupted my registry and parts of my system so bad that I had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall windows... :(
