FFX with Phenom9950 and ATI4870

I'm am using the very latest beta release of PCSX2, and my computer has a Phenom 9950 (2600Mhz) and an ATI4870.

My problem is that the game runs slow. Also, the sound is about 1s late, and choppy.

The game plays at the same speed (about 80%, 40-60fps)regardless of resolution, so I suppose I have more of a cpu problem than a graphic card one. So lowering configs on sound helps, but lowering graphical stuff does nothing.

I tried speed hacks and frame skip, but they make any non-static object (as in the characters in the opening sequence, for example) not appear in half of the frames.

I plan to try to overclock my CPU, but I wanted to know if anybody had some advice? Should I be using GSdx or ZeroGs? For sound, SPU2-X or ZeroSPU2? Please help me :). Also, what CPU settings should I change that might be compatible with my CPU and FFX?

PS. My absolute priority is seamless fluidity, and a game speed of 100% (or even 150%, that would be nice, I'm impatient). If I can achieve this, and only then, I will crank up settings. Help?

My (PAL) version works fine (i have same processor, AMD Phenom 9950, Black Edit. 2,6Ghz) and it's usually at 100% and 99%, sometimes might goes down to 95% at minimum.

I use GSdz 883 (MSVC 15.00, SSE2) 0.1.13 one with the config looking like this:

Dunno if it's any help for ya (i'm using Vista also). I haven't had any large problems so far (except at Kilika screen went black after a cutscene).

I play thou with unlimited frame atm, so i don't need to wait all the stuff xP but that makes the sound not match the video (in cutscenes).

For sound i'am using P.E.OpS. SPU2 1.9.0
EDIT: I have nVIDIA GF 9800 GTX+

Oh sry, yes GSDx; it was typo

Well i don't want to use pirated version of FFX, so i use my own and i've heard that there is no Expert Sphere Grid on US version =o

And i can't remember where i got the plugin anymore >_< i forget some things quickly. Thou i've met few places in the game where it went down to 80% for a while =o

since i'm too lazy to tell them i just show you them in the pic =o
