    Without knowing your specs how do you expect anyone to be able to offer advice?

    Better CPU.

    Maybe build that computer you've been making a million threads about for a good 4 months or so?

    Better CPU, better GPU.

    Better CPU has already been mentioned and GPU is actually pretty irrelevant.


    To OP: Hardware aside, have a look at this post. Seems like it helped the OP of that thread.

    Actually, it depends on the settings. I have an average GPU and a great CPU and I have trouble running most games. Because it also relies on the GPU. So, depending on his hardware, both a better CPU and GPU.

    Lower your emulation resolution, make sure to not use anti-aliasing or other enhancing features. Newer emulators operate on plugin-based emulation. Make sure you have a good plugin, some versions work better than others, and some versions work better than older/newer ones. Ask on the forums for Dolphin, some people have found the best setups.

    Also, play with your video plugin. You can sometimes find a way of emulating that works better in one game than it does in another. But these are all to get games working a bit better if they already work well. It's to optimize your emulation. If you're getting, like, really low FPS, your computer just isn't powerful enough for the emulation. Make sure you have the newer/best versions of the emulator as well.

    I must say I've never seen "/thread"s failing to contribute a good answer as hard as your two posts in this thread. Not to mention their complete lack of meaning as you continued to post after your first "/thread".

    Then again, I have seen worse.
