Re: Will your desktop/laptop run PS2? ***Ask here***


i'll have to look at home what my new rig is specifically but it's incredibly stable for most stuff imo. never crashed once playing bf3 surprisingly so should be able to handle this i'm hoping.
8 core amd bulldozer 3.6.....stock speed and fan atm i know i'm lazy never upgraded. originally purchased a zalman fan but had issues with it and just returned it. thing was such a pain in the arse to mount to the mb i said f this and sent back lol. probably just get a water cooler eventually and go nuts on this if we get a beta launch date i might look into dropping one of those on prior to launch.
think i only got a 1 gig ati card atm but i forget the model # if i upgrade anything probably just be my vid card.
16 gig of ram currently should be enough >.>
2 - 1 TB 7200 spin seagates....never got ssd cause i just thought they were stupid overpriced atm and i currently don't really pc game much at least not til ps2 beta happens.

figure i'll roll with what i got til beta happens and see if there is anything i can tweak to make it run better after beta launch.

i always run ubuntu 10.10 linux unless i play bf3 atm just fyi. although i've had to manually configure the dual nic in that version of ubuntu anytime i update my os lol. just one of those quirks. if i get a ssd drive though i will probably drop win7 and planetside 2 beta on that and then dual boot and test drive the new version of mint or ubuntu. i pretty much avoid windows anymore like the plague unless i need it. my laptop is a mac book pro bout 2 years old now running logic pro....all i use that for is recording cause the apps are much more stable and easy to use. pc sucks for recording audio from my experience.

Where do you guys think a top of the line mobile card like the Radeon 7970m or Geforce 680m will fit on that list?

No idea, but they should both play PS2 comfortably.

Edit: I think this probably qualifies as the least helpful, most worthless post I've ever submitted in the tech forum.

7970M is 7800 series desktop level. The 680M is GTX 570 level, but below the GTX 580.

My setup below is:
Mobo: ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Processor:AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core
Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Ram: 8gb of Gskill Ripjaws memory DDR3 - 1600mhz

Should I be able to Play PS2 with my current setup? My biggest fear out of all of it is my Graphics Card. Do you think I will need to upgrade it?

Probably on low/med if you're on a low resolution.

HMR your setup should be ok. I would expect medium settings at least. Potential upgrades in the future? You would be looking at getting a Vishera PileDriver octo core from AMD coming this fall. As far as GPU? What resolution are you playing?

Hey Goku, I usually play on 1680X1050 resolution because that is the max that I can set it at.

Also, I will definitely look into the octo core.

Still awhile till release, but I would look into that verse going for say a 8120/8150. It will likely have far higher clocks, improved ipc, and wattage. Basically what BD should of been.

1680x1050? I would wait out for the GTX 660 brings personally. 670 would be way over kill and a waste of money imo. AMD you would be looking at a 7850.

Just installed this on my work PC. Kinda weird to see all 4 cores and both GPUs at 100% load, but eh, I got plenty of fans in the case.

Re: PSU Folding Team wants YOU!


I just throttled it back a little bit to be just on the GPUs, but now I noticed that it doesn't actually run on the second GPU - a Radeon HD 4350. Any clue how I can fix that?

EDIT: I read into it, and they just don't have any more job assignments for those Core 11 ATI GPUs.
