The problem now is that it emulates grafix almost perfectly, how are you going to have inuff power to play the actual games then...?

Well it seems the team wants to implement almost full compatability before they get down to optimization. I'm sure they be able to kick it up to at least 30fps once they begin that porcess but for now I think they just want to get all the hardware emulated.

Indeed, speed may improve in the future, but as already stated a while ago, and confirmed recently while speaking with Gabest, in order to be trouble free with PS2 emulation, most heavy games will require you to have a PCI Express system, which isn't widely available yet, and a 64bit version of PCSX2 will have to be made (actually, it's already being prepared, but it's gonna take some time). But, in all honnesty, buying some hardware right now for PCSX2 isn't the right thing to do, current video cards may have enough power, but not CPUs, not even the latest Athlon64. (for stable fullspeed I mean)

Have you guys played dreamcast games with chankast? Dreamcast games arn't that much lower on quality then ps2 games and I can play dreamcast games on my computer at 60 fps. My Specs: athlon xp 2600+, ati radeon 9600 w/256mb ram, 512 ddr 3200 ram, and 200gb hd. My computer definetely not the highest and chankast isn't even fully optimized yet.

PS. With most emulators that are being made everyone says that you have to have a really fast computer to play the games with it but when they finally come out with final, fully optimized versions of the emulators everyone ends up being wrong.

This is awesome! I finally broke down after this and downloaded the latest version. I actually got to watch the PS2 bios on my PC with sound! Although it was only 6 frames per second it was a great moment for me and Ill never forget it. ;) Awesome work PCSX2 team and plugin coders! :)

I know it is harder to emulate a ps2 and that is why it takes alot longer to finish this emulator.

PS. When people were first emulating the ps1 everyone was saying that you would have to have a fast computer to play games but I used to play psx games on my k6-2 350 and I know people who play psx games on less.

don't forget, that couple of years ago k6-2 based pcs were very fast mashines ;)
