Only download the SSE build if you have a Pentium 4 or Athlon 64
it requires SSE2 (possibly just misslabled?) and will just crash if you dont have it.

so if you have an Athlon XP or Pentium III, get the normal build (pcsx20.8.7z)

I have Pentium 4 3.0c CPU and Pcsx 0.8 sse2 build. When try play FFX realtime-intro, it will encount a deadlock or crash -_-

but these program will be fixed when use Pcsx 0.8 noraml build instead.

why?

Good question, but i have a feeling its not due to the build. if it crashes during the intro thats a VU-Rec problem, if it happens during loading, delete the NVM and MEC files in your bios directory.

If your Pc is an Athlon 64 then for sure you have sse2
but you can check the cpu config option in pcsx2
just read Bositman's PCSX2 Configuration Guide and you'll see how its done
also if you want you can download a tool from AMD called AMD CPUInfo
this tools built only for amd processors will tell all the information about your CPU

hope this helps

a note to all users:There is a bug in the SSE build of PCSX2,so it will ONLY work with processors with SSE2 too(P4/Athlon64/FX) and will crash otherwise.So if you dont have SSE2,use the normal release for the time being until this is fixed :)
its just a bug

Strange, as that’s a rather conflicting statement. Perhaps it means they meant to support SSE or will in the future.

I think that by default it is enabled
but wait for somebody who has a processor like that
to give you an opinion

Athlons/Durons have no SSE support
The Athlon XP added SSE support. This was also added to some Dunon's in the form of the Morgan core (1.1GHz and above, IIRC)
The Athlon 64 added SSE2 support. I have one I can verify that. There is no need to or anyway to dis/enable SSE2 support as far as I know.
The latest (3800+ IIRC) Athlon 64 core and the Athlon 64 X2 add SSE3 support.

If you need to check on your CPU's feature set, go to http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php
