Most likely it seems that you have a problem with the system RAM, maybe not compatible sticks or one could be bad. Or even the motherboard could have a bad RAM slot. Test for memory problems with memtest86+ http://www.memtest86.com/
Could you provide some details of your system? Specifically make/model of motherboard and which Pentium 4 CPU you're using.
If CPU is socket 478 then you will have SSE3 only if Prescott core, otherwise SSE3 is only available on socket 775 Intel CPUs.
Grand Theft Auto may need more than 1GB of system RAM to play nicely and a dedicated graphics card is highly suggested. I believe XFCE is the same NES emulator that I use and I've found that any problems can be fixed by changing some of the settings in the emulator. Usually set lower settings if possible. I've never tried ReGen before, though.. I use one called Gens and it works very well.
Sometimes the audio skips a little even for me on GTA:3 & Vice City and I've got at least double the recommended system specs, seems to be something in the way it reads audio from the CD-Rom.

If the CPU features Hyper Threading make sure it is enabled in the system BIOS. If no Hyper Threading it will run slower. The best benefit would be more RAM and a graphics card.

Sorry for delay in response, I've got a friend who uses the same motherboard so we took a photo of the screen to show Hyper Threading option in BIOS. Looks like it should be in Advanced CPU settings.
It is possible for CPU to malfunction, but most CPUs can handle quite a bit before failure. Maybe try CPU-Z to see if it shows any problems with the CPU. It should just show info about your system.
Maybe try Speedfan to see what your system temperatures are and make sure your fans are running.
