Dark Cloud with my specs?
#1
Processor: AMD Phenom™ II X4 850 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz
Memory: 4094MB RAM
Page File: 3167MB used, 5223MB available
Card name: AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
Manufacturer: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
Chip type: ATI display adapter (0x6738)
DAC type: Internal DAC(400MHz)
Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6738&SUBSYS_31071682&REV_00
Display Memory: 2803 MB
Dedicated Memory: 1012 MB
Shared Memory: 1791 MB
Current Mode: 1280 x 1024 (32 bit) (75Hz)

It's a 6870, by the way.

I've tried Dark Cloud but it seems to be very laggy unless I allow 8-bit textures, then it's still off by 5fps and it looks terrible. I use the 6th preset and the 3D11 hardware driver on native resolution.
Any settings that might magically fix this before I consider getting an 8-core?

That card should be able to handle *at least* 3x res... As for CPU, try speedhacks like MTVU

8-core..........???????? which processor supports 8-cores.. Tongue2 Smile Its 8 threads i.e 4 Cores. Tongue2

Whats the EE/GS% when you get slowdowns?

Try these settings :
  • Change the Round mode to Nearest and Clamp Mode to None in Both EE and VU's section.
  • Use Speedhacks : All the Reccomended ones and EE Cyclerate to 2 and VU Cycle Stealing to 1
  • Use Native Resolution
  • Try frameskip (Not sure about this)
  • Use Allow 8-bit Texture
  • Change Windows Power Plan to High Performance : Important

Just tested it using the settings you recommended (not frameskip, used it before and I hated it) and it works fine! However, the resolution won't change off of 640x448 and 8bit textures suck Tongue but even so, thank you very much.

EDIT: I'm using GSdx 4879 SSE2 0.1.16 by the way.
Direct3D11, no interlacing, native res, allow 8bit

EDIT EDIT: And the eight core processor is AMD FX8150

You would see negligible gains with that CPU vs your current one.

If you want to spend money on a CPU to go faster in PCSX2 than what you have now, you'd get an Intel Sandy Bridge.

Please don't go with AMD FX Series. Better go with Intel I5/I7 2500K/2600K processor.

The FX8150 would probably be slower than your current CPU.
Yes, they're that bad Tongue2

No! But I do not prefer The AMD FX Series at all. I've heard that many PC Games also run slow on it. Not much slow but slow comparitvely to Intels one. Tongue2
