    Yeah, specs are the first thing you should post in a thread such as this...
    Have you tried No$GBA instead? Compatibility is lower, but it runs faster.

    No wonder. I think you'd be better off with No$GBA. It's not as resource heavy.

    I'd have to agree. Desmume is more for mac users (Such as myself)
    No$GBA naturally runs great, so I wouldn't imagine that you'd need to tweak it much

    Yeah, but different emulators require different specs. Its pretty weird, but the DS games require more RAM than the N64. Different emulators do different things. Go with No$GBA

    Like I said, emulators work differently. Take OpenEmu and SixtyForce for example. Same console emulator, but one is better than the other. SixtyForce is crap and OpenEmu is great. Its all dependent on what it requires and what its made with.

    Very different systems. When it comes to emulation, don't bother comparing systems, it doesn't mean anything. N64 emulation is far more developed. Though the N64 is a bit of a mess when it comes to the hardware, the DS has its own complications. No$GBA is your best bet like Jdbye mentioned.

    Out of curiousity, have you tried maxing out the Dynamic Recompiler setting (Config -> Emulation Settings -> CPU Emulation Mode -> Check off "Use dynamic recompiler" and set the block size to 100)? I was able to get desmume running well on even less than that (AMD Athlon 64 2.6 GHz, 2GB RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium, NVIDIA GeForce 6150LE).

    If you don't have this setting, you more than likely have an old version of Desmume and you should update.

    Maybe turning on vsync might help with choppiness. Do not use No$Zoomer as it hurts the performance. If it doesn't run smooth enough with these options, I don't think there's any other solution :(

    Try No$GBA. I got decent performances even on my old thinkpad.
