to be honest, it will probably run better on your desktop thanks to the overclock

Believe it or not, but I'd say the laptop's CPU is still faster.

You should use your laptop.

Switch to the software renderer

Config>video>Plugin settings>renderer

Also set 3 extra rendering threads.

I tried that, just slowed my game even more and now looks hidious due to missing textures  Biggrin
I also tried my laptop, but it was the same as my desktop

The textures should not be missing in software mode, but the resolution will be native to the playstation 2

PCSX2 is much more CPU dependent but some games are GPU dependant that r9 280x should blow the 960M out of the water but the i7 should destroy that Athlon even OC'd there's a 2x+ difference between the 2 at stock clocks http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-47...on-X4-760K

The laptop should do much better overall but if you find yourself GPU limited in a game use the desktop instead.
OS: Windows 10 64 bit
Processor: i7-6700k
GPU: AMD R9 Nano
Ram: 16GB DDR4

You have to play the games at 50 fps or 60 fps, so they should be the same for most games, provided that you don't use the internal resolution higher than 3x Native.
