Getting HD in PCSX2

I know that 1080p is supposed to be a but more complex than just the resolution, but having a resolution match should essentially be the same thing, or at least a very close approximation, right?

Well sort of, but extra anti-aliasing is also needed to get the best HD.Tongue

Some games won't get this "anti-aliasing", they keep on showing jagged edges regardless of how much internal res you put. If you want real antialiasing, and have a nvidia, use nhancer and the not-so-known trick to make hardware aa work with gsdx. Sadly, i'ts only for dx9.

HD is based on resolution, not AA.....

So setting the GDSX to 1920x1080 will give me 1080p.

I agree .... the GSDX D3D Internal ren set 1980X1080 = 1080p is the better. The higher the value, the higher AA will form but will cause less load to GPU compare to X16 AA ZeroGS GPU usage toward GPU.

Here is the result: (Final Fantasy XII ENGLISH)

GSDX: D3D Internal ren set 1980|1080 = GPU usage - 55% | CPU usage - 45% | FPS: 59.00
ZoeroGS: Resolution set 1980x1080 AAx16 = GPU usage - 80% | CPU usage - 45% | FPS: 39.00
(Note: I set GDSX resolution= windowed)

*Personal experience: I found out that 1980|1080 GDsx AA is less compare to ZeroGS AAx16. BUT the difference AA is not very noticeable.

(All usage value is based on average value display by my Real-time GPU monitor and Real-time CPU monitor sofware)

Both tested by my self.

*Both same plugin used accept the Graphic plugin
*Both Smae speed hack enable.

I'm planning to get an e8400 (stock 3.0 ghz) and OC it to around 3.6Ghz along with a GTX 260 or Ati 4870. Would that be enough to run at HD quality? Laugh

In most games yes,although there will still be games that won't run well due to emulation bugs (even if there are no graphical bugs,you can't get good speeds)

@ nelsonz

1980x1080 windowed mode? You have a 30+" monitor? or am I not getting something here? Tongue

Internal resolution has nothing to do with how big the program's window is. Internal resolution determines the sharpness of the image.

So which would run at a higher fps?

1) An internal resolution of 1980x1080 at windowed mode?

or

2) An internal resolution of 1280x720 at full screen mode?

assuming all plugins are the same of course.

Option #2. From what I understand, playing in full screen will always get you more FPS. So in a sense, internal resolution of 1980x1080 in full screen would get you better FPS then in windowed mode. Please, correct me if I am wrong though.
