Radeon 4670 1 GB???
#1
Just like it says...

Can a E7400 Core 2 Duo @ 4.0 GHZ with a Radeon Sapphire 4870 1 GB Handle PCSX 2 decently given all the improvements or is a minimum of a 9600 GT with a 256 bit bus still required...

Note I was able to "just" play some games on a E5200 with a 3650, but not Virtua Fighter or the faster ones like the Tekken ones...

So is this an improvement????

Or do I need a 256 bit bus card????

I'd read the Faq - but I don't see this model specifically....

Thanks

The card in your title differs extremely from the one in your post, I take you meant a 4670 and not a 4870 ? Or the other way round ?
The 4670 would be much slower than your 9800GTX, but the 4870 would be a bit faster, especially at high resolutions.

BTW, nice overclock on the E7400 Smile
Mine took a lot of volts, both Core and VTT, to get to 4Ghz and remain stable.

There is no reason to update your graphics card for emulation purposes. A 9800 GTX is more than enough GPU power for the emulator. Any slowdowns with a 4GHZ Core 2 is simply the game not running particularly well on the emulator yet, and there is little you can do.

However, for general PC gaming, I would upgrade to a 4870 if you can =P

Sorry, that's my CURRENT system...I'm building a 2nd one

With a E7400 and a 4670 1 GB for example - wondering if it can handle pcsx2

My original system is really An E8600 AND the 9800 GTX you see in the signature...

Sorry for the mix up..

Proposed system:

E7400 (oc'd to 4 ghz)
Gigabyte EP45 UD3P/UD3R
Radeon 4670 1 GB
Some 800 Ram
Etc....

Sorry mate, should have been more specificCoolCool

Ah, well, the 4670 is not as good as the 9800GTX.

What type of motherboard and how much vtt and nb???

oh sorry, just noticed it..... anyways vtt has to be a little higher like 1.25+
nb takes 1.52 and vcore is 1.40 minimum for me...

Only have this E7400 in the MAIN board to see how it can do before the UD3P

Hmm, why you ask for that card? Your 9800 is more than enought. If you would to try new card then try directx.11 card + SM.5.0 = HD.5870/HD.5850. Those card is worth to try.

it's for a 2nd system

Thanks

Would love the 5870 but I've only got like 80.00-100.00 for the Graphics card and the 3850 is now sold out.... The only other option besides the obvious 9600gt is the Radeon 3870 512 GDDR4 whick is still available....

I'm trying to save here and still get decent performance...the big 4870 will be in the new year


Edit: I didn't ask this on extreme because not all them are gamers, but this seems like the more appropriate forum:

Another idea I had was to buy this instead:
Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 IceQ 4+ Turbo Video Card
and put the motherboard off for a few weeks... it will still be built - just in November...

Now strictly from a PCSX2 stand-point - is this a worthwhile investment, or would the 4670 or 9600gt suffice and this is just overkill?????

Thanks

edit 2: i know the answer is obvious....but I wanted a PCSX2 Gamer's perspective.....

Motherboard is Asus P5QL Pro, Cooler is Akasa 965, VTT=1.40, and Core Volts = 1.40 in BIOS, and 1.376 in Windows after vdroop.

not bad...probably same revision

I need 1.42 in BIOS for 4.0 stable and 1.18 VTT (originally) and nb 1.40 (10x400)
For 8.5 X 471 I need 1.42 vcore in BIOS , 1.25 VTT and NB 1.52
