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?
-My CPU is a 955 3.2 phenom quad core
-My GPU is an evga gtx 550 Ti fpb

I've played Battlefield 3 with everything maxed out on a 64 person server at 1600x900 resolution. My frames per second almost never dropped below 40. I suspect you'll be able to play at high-max settings if Planetside 2 requirements are similar. Don't waste money on a new card just yet.

Thanks for the update VOWS Flawless, I was waiting for beta myself before I hit go on any purchases. But yeah I run pretty much the same as you in BF. So I was hoping for the same.

The 955 is a stronger quad core vs the 4100 as much as that sounds to be wrong. The cores in the 4100 are a lot weaker due to AMD's new design they took on with BD. There probably be a noticable difference between your cpus if this game only uses two cores.

My setup, if anyone can comment on potential settings I could reach:

CPU: Intel i5-750 at 3.2GHz (160MHz*20)

RAM: Ripjaw 8GB DDR3 (1600 MHz)

GPU: HD 5770 1GB

Hard Drive: OCZ-VERTEX2 SSD

Many thanks

I think we need people to start including their resolution...

At 1280x1024 you'll probably be fine, at 1900x1080 you might need to turn off some of the extravagant stuff.

You should be able to run on at least medium preset at 1080p. I've got a 5770, too, so also waiting to see how it does.

Maybe on low settings and resolution...but yeah, you're boned.
You could run Windows on the Mac...but you aren't looking at a great gaming machine unless you spend your kidney on a Mac Pro.

MacBook Air can barely run YouTube... you're going to need some stronger hardware there, mate.

You could maybe get away with a GPU upgrade on that C2D to make PS2 playable on at least minimum Magpie. There are some factors however. If and when you want more advice feel free to make a thread on it.

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


Toms' Hardware has posted another one of their handy hierarchy charts, which I've marked up for our purposes here.

The Low-Med-High-Ultra scale is somewhat of a guess on my part right now, and is by no means what the game may actually require (it may turn out that only the very top tier is high/ultra, and the one below it is already medium).


Your CPU should be able to bear with the load, but your GPU would be causing you to scrape the bottom of the setting scale. It would probably be playable if you upgraded the GPU to something like an HD 6770.

Honestly, I don't think the CPU is going to matter that much for graphics scaling.

You can't turn gameplay physics off so, if your CPU can't handle it, it won't matter what your graphics settings are.


I find it super funny that AMD's best only stacks up with 4 gens ago's i5/i7s
