Not planning on using any any time soon, I'm just curious. I know Project 64 is the best for N64, but what about NES, SNES, GB/GBC, GBA, DS, PSP, PS1? Are any as well done as P64?

The best emulators for Windows:

Nes - Jnes
Snes - Snes9x
GBA - Visual Boy Advance
DS - DeSmuME

For me, its not about perfect accuracy though. I need emulators where I can just play the games at full speed, and GOOD accuracy.

That list is so wrong. The best emulator for NES, SNES, GB, GBC, and GBA, among others, is Higan, assuming you have a computer that can run it. And ZSNES? Really? I like its interface more than Snes9x, but really it's terrible for anything but the most popular games.

Wow Higan's pretty good.

Higan isn't the best for all those systems, the only core in Higan that is the best in its class is SNES. The SNES core is just about as close to perfect as you can get. Byuu had the hardware scanned with an electron microscope. The other cores aren't terrible but they aren't programmed to perfection like Byuu did with bSNES.

I have used all of these and they all work as intended.

Atari 2600: Stella
Atari 7800: Emu7800
Arcade: MAME
Amiga: WinUAE
NES: Nestopia or Mednafen
Game Boy & Game Boy Color: RetroArch with Gambatte core
Game Boy Advance: RetroArch with VBA Next core
SNES: RetroArch with bsnes core/snes9x next core or Mednafen
Sega Master System, Genesis and Sega CD: RetroArch with Genesis Plus GX core
Sega 32X: Kega Fusion
Sega Saturn: SSF
Sega Dreamcast: NullDC
TurboGrafx-16 & TurboCD: Mednafen
Panasonic 3DO: 4DO
Nintendo DS: DeSmuME
Nintendo 64: Project 64 or CEN64 when it's actually playable
Sony Playstation: Mednafen or ePSXe Shark Enhanced with gpuBladesoft, PEOPS Dsound + Pokopom
Sony Playstation 2: PCSX2
Nintendo Gamecube & Wii: Dolphin

Emu Frontend: Hyperspin or GameEX (both will require a lot of work but worth it)

If you notice a trend, that's because RetroArch and Mednafen are the best all-purpose emulators especially if you're a fan of accuracy and compatibility. I'm not a fan of Higan or its stripped features.

I'd also recommend Pokopom plugin for every emulator it supports since it enables xinput and you'll even get rumble with wireless controllers. Plus you won't even have to set your controls. Just do some Googling and you'll find everything easily.
