That seems like the best fit for TC's CPU and will allow you to play most modern games, albeit at lower settings/resolution, while maxing older titles.

I disagree, Windows 8.1 will maximize his gaming potential to levels of unfathomable success.

It's not TOO awful given you stick a decent GPU in it, but yeah i still wouldnt expect it to run anything new. By anything new, I mean, anything that is on a next gen console.

TBH I don't care too much about that. I would like to run PCSX2 really well though. Am I stuck with my mediocre CPU?

I would not expect PCSX2 to run well on account of the weak CPU. You're not necessarily stuck with that CPU (as I said earlier, it depends on what your motherboard supports), but upgrading the CPU is probably not worth the investment.

I'm sure more popular games would run alright but my OCd 3570k struggles with a lot of my personal favorites.

I wouldn't count on it - generally emulation is fairly CPU intensive, and PS2 emulation is particularly CPU intensive given the systems complexity, so you need at least a solid i3/i5 machine at 3.4+ Ghz to get "good" results with the popular games (you'll still likely see the odd frameskip/FPS drops that wouldn't occur natively on such a machine).
