Well, I actually had a topic going about that, over in general discussion/support.
PC specs as of current are:
AMD Athlon II x4 630 2.8 Ghz
6 Gigs of RAM
Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5
New PC I'm building is going to be:
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
GPU: Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5
Now, in that thread, WarWeeny was telling me that I wouldn't be able to record with PCSX2, cause it wouldn't be powerful enough. I was wanting to use FRAPS, because I don't know how to use the internal recorder, and I like to record commentary with my recordings, as I do Let's Plays on Youtube. Also, Not all games I want to record are 100% compatible yet. I don't know if you remember, but I was having some trouble with Run Like Hell, where every couple of seconds, the character model would flip upside down for a second.
So, I figured I'd use my Hauppauge.
Ended up doing a little bit of testing with my current rig and FRAPS as well. Results
"Well, I just got done doing a test on my Dark Cloud game, and I was playing it on x2 native, texture filtering half enabled, with 8-bit textures. Recording was done with FRAPS. With those settings and the MTVU hack enabled, I averaged about 55 fps, with the lowest going down to 47 fps. So, would the new CPU allow me to get better FPS at all then, and if so, do you all think I would be able to run Eternal Ring, Michigan: Report from Hell, and the final fantasy games with those settings? Also, would having 8 gigs of ram also help instead of the 6 I have right now?"
Do you think that with the new rig, I would be able to record with FRAPS? Or is there some way to use the internal recorder with being able to record commentary as well?
