newdamocles: what build or what version that you are using?...btw there is a new version of GSdx ,GSdx 13...and you still using 9
that's the final version of the official one,,there's one called Pcsx2 Playground it's Unofficial version but updated,go for this,and as vincet said you have to create an iso image to play Ps2 games more smoothly more than DVD reader..and do you have ideas about overclocking your CPU?..I am using PC SX2 0.9.5 (pcsx2svn377.exe), and GSdx10, GSdx-sse4.
That's all, it's good or not ? ^^
hmm,,your cpu is more than good, but some games need more speed such as MK,,and there's No risk if you have ideas about overclocking,but you have to read a lot of pages about overclocking...and frankly i'v never played this game via emulator,I always play with ISO. And about my CPU i never overclock a CPU and i fear about risk for the CPU. And i think that my CPU is good to play you don't agree ?
