I am trying out my old FFX-2 game, since my PS2 is broken; however, when I loaded it up, I am getting 30fps in videos.

My system specs are as follows:

Intel Core2DUO E7400 @ 3.2ghz
Nvidia Geforce 9600GT
3gb DDR2 PC6400 @ 660MHz

My PCSX2 plugins are as follows:

Graphics: GSdx 883 (MSVC 15.00, SSE2) 0.1.13
Controllers: Lilypad 0.9.9
CD/Rom: Gigaherz's CDDVD plugin 0.7.0
USB: USBnull driver 0.5.0
Sound: ZeroSPU2 r514-Dev 0.4.6 (It's the only one that doesn't skip and stutter constantly :\)

I think the rest is irrelevant.

If I don't enable "Timescaling" in the sound plugin, then the sound is really choppy and stuttery. If I enable it, I get 30-40FPS and the videos are unwatchable because they're almost 2x slower than they should be. The sound's pitch doesn't change; it just slows down, a -lot-. in the window's status bar, it shows anywhere from 50% to 70% beside FPS.

Any tips to improve my FPS (that's the only thing that's really getting me, I'm only getting ~30fps in the FMVs, and it's just..ugh), or any plugins to do so would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Finally got past the FMV, but it's still slow all-around. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, I have MUCH better than the recommended specs for most games.

^ Fix this, it's like over a year old.
What's the newest version? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Nevermind, found it, but that hasn't fixed anything.

It's NOT my system, because...well, if I can run crysis on high, and if I can run other graphically-intensive games on max, then I should be able to emulate a PS2 (I know that the system requirements are higher than the graphics would imply).

Create an ISO using something like DVD Decrypter. (free) (Google it)

Load DVD Decrypter and press 'R'. (puts the ripper into ISO "read" mode)

Choose a place to save the ISO and click the DVD > HDD icon.

I made an ISO using PowerISO while I was waiting for a reply, because I thought that might help things out a bit - still no dice.
