As well as PS2 games, like said before, the ps2 is mostly cpu, so the gpu can be good enough. You just said "play well" right? Go for it but beware of the comments of "you can build one better".

Speaking if this, is there any way to stop the screen from being jittery while playing a game? --- i5-3450 Ivy Bridge @3.1 (3.5) | Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 | Team Elite 4GB DDR3 @1333 | BIOSTAR H61MGC | 200GB Western Digital HDD | Samsung 55" 1080p

I play with the cpu in my sig and have gotten full speed on everything I've tried except some rare parts in Kingdom Hearts... I think people are exaggerating a bit >_> --- Windows 7 | AMD Athlon II x4 620 | 2gb DDR3 | NF750-G55 | Antec Earthwatts 380W PSU | Geforce 8200 integrated for now :( Steam - Totalrapture

Nope. Hell, that FFX-2 benchmark isn't even the best way to judge performance. Certain in-game sections of Dawn of Mana run worse. --- mmarkster posted... Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

i dunno about the card, but I think the cpu is fine enough if you already have it. Of course i3/5 is best for these emulators, but I have a firstname.lastname@example.org for the moment. cuts through every game I play on pcsx2 pretty well at 1080/30 or 60. Maybe I'm just not playing the problem games though >_>
the few games I do play on Dolphin so far play well - Xenoblade and LKS and a couple other games at their native fps and 4x res just fine
definitely definitely make a backup, it'll run a lot better --- http://i.imgur.com/1KhVg.gif <3

PCSX2 got updated some months back, and apparently benefits a bit by having 3 cores
But as others have said, Intel's CPUs is where it's at for emulation --- Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever! Won't get Battlefield 3 until all DLC is included

Ehh, it would run them ok I imagine, but the i3 2100 would do a better job. Emulation is all about the CPU and PCSX2 doesn't use more than two cores.
Wrong. It uses 3 now. And it hates AMD cpus. Intel gets much more performance out of PCSX2 as well as every other emulator.
Get nothing less than a Sandy Bridge i5 if you're going to be emulating PS2/GCB/Wii stuff.
And just run from that rig in OP link. What a ripoff. $700 for an AMD and a 520? lol. --- You'll be my John G.
