Hmmm...a average computer, I guess.
You MUST use full window mode and other than ePSXe running, ensure that all oter applications are SHUT DOWN.

Post your full plugin specs. Besides, your graphic card model (IMPORTANT!)

Yeah, if you're going to do full screen, at least keep it proportional to the PSX's native resolution :p. I'm a real stickler when it comes to that :D.

From my experience, if you use windowed mode on a average computer, using OGL for intance, might encounter slowness in certain sequences.

So far, Intel Extreme Graphics (I know it suxs...) will NOT encouter this problem.
Only cards like the old ATI Rage, or PCI cards can cause such problems.

IM running a faster system so I cant exactly relate play with settings the Open GL plugin works very well but dont be afraid to sacrifice i tiny bit of quality for game play such as if giving up the battle swirl helps the game out who needs the swirl anyways?

He got an FX5200 IMO.

For an average computer, I apply it to Intel Pentium II/III 500~800MHz processors.
Besides, you already have a Pentium IV processor which would not apply here.

I also stated ' Only cards like the old ATI Rage, or PCI cards can cause such problems.'
