If you're expecting every game in Dolphin to run at full speed, you'll be sorely disappointed. GameCube/Wii emulation is incredibly CPU-intensive, and there are a few games that even the fastest processor money can buy will struggle to run.
If your computer can only run a game at 20-30% speed, there's little that can be done other than fiddling with the settings or buying a faster CPU. Furthermore, your graphics card doesn't matter nearly as much to Dolphin as it does for PC games. It's all about the CPU.
I generally fiddle with the graphics settings for each game until I get a good balance between speed and graphical glitchiness.
Also, never use Real EFB unless the game really needs it. It's the worst slowdown - for me, it takes New Super Mario Bros. Wii from a respectable 60-100% to a measly 5%.
