Before I get a new graphics card...
#1
...Can I get a general consensus it is a good idea to do so? I've tried dozens of configs with no avail, the performance is just not nearly as good as I need it to be. The video is slow and choppy, FPS's are under 15, audio is just as slow in performance. The only games I play are GTA San Andreas, SSX and kingdom hearts. Neither have ever worked as well as they should.

My specs below

Wow, I at least was sure the CPU was usable :/

No, that cpu is probably the weakest link here


It's Single threaded score on cpubenchmark.net is 723

we recommend a minimum of about 1400 - 1600, but some games can require up to about 2100

Yeah your whole PC is over, and your cpu is too slow for pcsx2.

Alright then, guess I'm doing a little more shopping than I was expecting. I suppose Bositman will have to edit this post : http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-Sticky-Wi...y-computer

From what I read there, my cpu was in the recommended list, and my gpu was questionable.
I suppose the stepping instruction is what puts it at the bottom of the list?

Though my Radeon is a 5570

Years ago it was the latests cpu.. but now its old, and pcx2 runs far better.
Yeah any 1150 mobo + i5 2500k is cheap and very good, even for pc games.

Those aren't the hd radeon series , they are even older models. You can also overclock your processor to something like 3ghz to get a little increase in performance. Though it would be wise to get a cheap lga 1150 mobo and get a g3258 (if, you are cost bound) (or) just get any haswell i3 (or) i5 processor.

Thanks ssakash, with those suggestions, there would be virtually no lag or performance issues?
