Planning on buying upgrades to 4 pcsx2
#1
Here's what i'm looking at (AMD/ATI)

Mainboard = ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 890FX

CPU = AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz

RAM = CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM (1600 speed)

Video = SAPPHIRE 100312-1GDP Radeon HD 6950 1GB

will this work?
suggestions please.

how about researching and realising that its 40% slower than an i5 2500 (making it slower than a phenom x6) with pcsx2.

there is no such thing as an AMD configuration good enough for pcsx2.

This. Amd can't even beat the Q9xxx series let alone the Sandy Bridge CPUs (Core i5/i7).

Tallbender just want to know how the Bulldozer performs in PCSX2 so he want the TC to be the experiment Laugh.

If you wanna use PCSX2, go with Intel. I'm having a Phenom II at the moment and it was the decision I will regret until I have a new Intel CPU laptop.

And who tells you AMD/ATI is better than Intel/Nvidia in gaming anyway?

Nobody! Tongue2 I guess.

Better don't take from AMD CPU. Bulldozer is not that much good for pcsx2. And AMD does not support ssse3 and sse4.1(except Bulldozer). Intel Chips will perform fas better/faster.

Graphics Card is your choice, Though Nvidia is best.
