Hi all, in this video I go over the best Playstation 2 (PS2) Emulator for PC. PCSX2 is an incredible emulator that has a TON of options.
Included in this video is a tutorial / installation guide with the settings that I use/recommend in order to get your games up and running great!
Please note that most PC setups vary in some way, shape or form, so your settings may differ slightly from mine.
Full list of improvements for version 1.6.0:
BIOS (for reference):
From the Wiki page:
Minimum (most games will be unplayable slow)
CPU: Any that supports SSE2 (Pentium 4 and up, Athlon64 and up)
GPU: Any that supports Pixel Shader model 2.0, except Nvidia FX series (broken SM2.0, too slow anyway)
512MB RAM (note that Windows Vista needs at least 2GB to run reliably)

PCSX2 is a Playstation 2 emulator for Windows and Linux. It was started by the team behind PCSX (an emulator for the original PlayStation) back in 2002, and as of late 2013 development is still active. The emulator achieved playable speeds only by mid-2007 and subsequent versions have improved speed and compatibility making it both the ultimate solution for PS2 emulation and the instrument to keep and preserve the PS2 legacy in the modern world. Though not yet perfect the program can successfully emulate most commercial PS2 games at playable speeds and good visuals (often better than the original PS2).
