Optimization for this game
When I try to play Doom 2 I get a llow frame rate at about 20 frames per second, is my CPU not good enough or do I have to change something in the options.

Could be Vsyncing down to a lower level of performance using the DOSBox surface renderer.

DOSBox is an emulator, and as such it requires LOTS of CPU time to emulate the performance of a DOS based machine with hardware, and interfaces, that no-longer exist.

If you want a higher frame rate (than say 35fps or 70fps) you cannot use DOSBox anyway, as the original game was limited to 70fps (for gameplay, not timedemos).

May I suggest PrBoom, at 640x480, as a starting point?

Using PrBoom you can play doom at your horizontal refresh rate (of up to 64,600 fps).
- Bear in mind that anything over 1,200fps can kill some video cards
