    Which is the best emulator available for playing those games? I'm using pSX now don't really have a good experience with it as when I played MegaMan X4 it keeps on freeing after defeating a boss.

    What are some fairly good USB controller for playing them? By fairly good, I only want one with smooth buttons to press on, if possible just like the official Sony PSX controller that smooth.. The one I used to play with the games today at my friend's house was stiff like hell... Where can I order them online? Hopefully it's from sites like LighTake etc. that provide free shipping or just plain low shipping rates..

    My PC spec's Pentium Dual-Core CPU @ 2.10GHz GPU: Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family , will it be able to play the PS1 games at the best possible graphics? Just like you played it on a TV with a real PSX... I'll ask about the PS2 games as well but I don't think it's possible lol

    IMO ePSXe is all of the games I tried ran at full speed, it's got a crapload of plugins, and the shaders are really interesting, they can give unique looks to the games you're playing. Also, it's much better than PSX.

    Also, I use a Logitech F310 USB Gamepad for all of my PC games that can use it, it works very well.

    ePSXe

    Wired xbox360 controller is the best gamepad for PC.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Choice:

    ePSXe

    I am using PSX gamepad adapter to my PC and it works great for ePSXe without a problem. Most games responsive to ePSXe with PSX gamepad adapter just fine. [​IMG]

    Recommend:

    AdriPSX ILE
    PSXjin (port of pcsx but better and I havent test it. You can try it too)
    PCSX Reloaded

    Try them to your taste. [​IMG]

    The point of an emulator is to play the games at native speed/graphics. What people generally look for is the ability to go beyond that. Your specs are fine.

    As for the controller...

    That with an actual PS2 controller.

    Who would willingly use a PS controller.

    That's just sick and wrong. Especially since a PS controller and 360 controller (button layout wise) are basically the same except thumbstick and dpad are switched to not feel like shit when gaming.

    I've only got a PS2 controller, but if somebody wants to send me a 360 controller I could test. [​IMG]

    But then you'd be playing the PS1 with a 360 controller. WTF? That's why I like the Gamepad F310, I find it all around better than the 360 controller.

    Like I said the layout is virtually identical.
    Really. Put 'em side by side, or get screenshots and compare.

    So it's more like "but then you'd be playing the PS1 with a vastly superior PS-like controller"
