[Question] On what settings can i play the game?


Hi everyone! I'm planning on getting this PC, but I have no idea or whatsoever of this, but do you know on what settings raphics i can run the game with these Specs?
Processor: Intel Core i5-4430 Quad core, @3 GHz, 3,2 with Turbo.
RAM: 10 Gigabites
Graphics Card: GeForce Gt 625, 2GB Graphical memory
OS: Windows 8 (god why can't i buy a pc with 7?)

(just another quick question: What do i need to have (Graphics card, Processor or RAM)for a good Render quality?)

Thanks very much.

Play on high at the very least.

This game is generally CPU bound meaning that reducing video quality often mean you get fewer FPS.

If anything try reducing shadows. Try running with PhysX and without and compare the experience.

Further than that, in game press alt+f which will display your fps and either [cpu] or [gpu].

The first of those means you are CPU bound. You will probably be CPU bound in fights.

The second means you are GPU bound. You will be GPU bound (probably) when you are in an empty area and when it doesn't matter much.

It would be more wise to build your own PC, especially if you are looking for an OS that is not Win8.

So far as to say, you would do well on High.

This. Skip Win 8 at all costs.

Will try, as long as it's still in my budget

EDIT: What do you guys think of a AMD Radeon HD7000 1GB graphics card? i have no knowledge in the graphics card stuff.

You don't have a GPU worth mentioning. I'd be surprised if the game ran on Low.

This (better)
or
This (~2/3'rds as powerful as the above, but w/ physx eyecandy)

Would be the bare minimum for GPU power. The GPU in the first link is about 925% faster than your current GPU.

do you comment on the original post or my last post? and why do the others say I would do good on high settings whn you reply to the original post?

For video card, GTX 660/760 will perform your needs.
Since PS2 is an NVIDIA promoted game, I would suggest getting an Nvidia card anyhoot.

I'm running Win 8.1 consumer preview now and so far it's a rock solid desktop-friendly OS. Big improvement over Win 8 for desk-top users.

if he'd want to go cheaper than that, i'd recommend the ASUS GTX 650Ti, it is my card. it is cheap, it is fantastic. can run PS2 on ultra, above 30 frames (i say 30 because this game is CPU intensive).

but of course, it doesn't really matter when it comes to PS2, due to it being a CPU hog.

I was responding to the OP. I think the people saying you can run it on High are not aware that an Nvidia 625 GPU is rather weak. The game needs a good CPU, and the CPU you are looking at is fantastic - fully capable of running it on High if it were paired with a decent GPU.

If you are looking into the AMD 7000 series GPUs, the 7790 is the cheapest I would recommend. A 7770 would be OK, but you'd probably still feel the desire to upgrade in the near future. IMO, the performance gain you'd get from spending the extra $30 on a 7850 (compared to a 7790) is significant in terms of performance per dollar.


Generally speaking, with a few exceptions:

For AMD GPUs, the 1st digit tells you how new the card is. So a 7000 card is newer than a 6000 card.
The 2nd digit tells you how powerful the card is designed to be. So a 7800 is faster than a 7700.
The 3rd digit tells you about how well the card did during quality control testing. So a 7770 is the same basic card as a 7790 but the 7770 had some parts that did not pass quality control and those parts were disabled, leading to a slightly slower card.

For Nvidia GPUs, the 1st digit also tells you how new the card is, and the 2nd digit tells you how powerful the card is compared to other cards released at the same time. For example, a 580 is older than a 625, but the 580 is significantly faster than the 625.

okay thanks! I'll try to put everything together without exceeding my budget, pretty hard. I'll just sell my old WII or something
