Default Emulation of original PS games

I would like to play original Play Station games (no roms - I have the real CD) on my PC.
Should I use a certain emulator?
Should I get the game on my PC (if it is legal)?

Thank you
Leonaru

ePSXe 1.7.0
Psx 1.13

as to your second question... it's really a personal opinion

Thank you very much.
I didn't mean buying the game again for PC. I wasn't sure weather ripping those CDs was okay.

By the way: Is there a way to connect a controller with my PC (yes, I could just buy an original console, but maybe not just play station, possibly other systems as well)?

I don't think you are supposed to use both copies at once, but I'm pretty sure ripping a copy of a game you own is fine.

Thank you again.
Radioshack... I am from Germany, and have never seen a radioshack store here. Maybe I can get something similar at our own stores.

Hey, just found something on in the net! Did not know such stuff did exist.

I got mine at a Radioshack too, but sadly that same Radioshack (that had the adapter a few years ago) stinks now. They really have gone down hill.

Remember, you'll also need a copy of the BIOS for the emulator to work.

why not just do what i do and use a ps3 controller. this way you get a psx style controller that plugs right into a usb port with no adapter needed and all you nee d to get it to work is a little activator program that can be found all over the net.
