By playstation 1 games, do you mean games that were also on play station 1, or are you useing a emulater?

Most games put more load on a graphcis card rather than the CPU.

What is your Graphics card (if any)?

Yup im Using the GMA X4500 HD, but that its enough to run play station 1 games.. that onboard graphics are not that bad, so i think its not the video card :/

Check your drivers and bios are up to date would be my next step
