Thanks for your in-depth reply dlanor. One part of OPL I never tried was USB games. I've only tried USB games using USBAdvanced. Probably explains why I ran into problems with a few games.
Regarding why I called Routers a hassle. I just meant that since my router is far away from my PS2, the only viable way to do a network connection is if I get a spare router out, which takes up space. So with a gigabit port on my PC, I could just connect my PS2 and PC directly. However now that I think about it a crossover cable would negate the need for a gigabit >_<
I was under the impression that with a decent rig one could run PS2 games on PCSX2 just fine, even if it is demanding? I want to ensure my next PC purchase can run PS2 games

To me a 'decent' rig is any PC capable of handling modern media playback at all rez as well as supplying network services at 100mbit speed. But this does not necessarily mean that it can emulate another platform with unrelated CPUs, generating complex 3-D graphics in a realtime game with full framerate. That is bound to be more expensive, and that is what it will take to play PS2 games with full satisfaction.
A newly bought PC of good specs should be able to do it, but not all will...
