    Why not try [​IMG] ? It looks like it'll be fine... but I don't really know, I have a real PS2.

    I never get why anyone wants to run PS2 games on computers, I mean a softmodded PS2's only costs about $50 at max.

    Probably not at decent speeds, and with servere FPS drops.

    I'm going to go ahead and say you'll probably need Dual-Core, another gig of RAM and a dedicated video card.

    Plus I'm pretty sure a lot of games still run pretty slowly, no matter what your PC specs are.

    Edit: Single Core CPUs work fine, apparently. But from looking at screenshots the emulator seems to make the games look.. slightly less quality then they actually are.
    Edit 2: So 1GB of RAM should be enough, but I would still recommend upgrading anyway. It'll give your computer a huge boost.

    Swap Magic is like an R4, out dated in every way. Look up ESR.

    And how can you break it???

    Your specs really aren't clear enough. You need more than simply My Computer -> Properties info that Windows provides... (Videocard specs, RAM speeds)
    And meh, it can run some games, just dont expect superb FPS [​IMG].
