CPU:

Pcsx2 only supports up to dual core so either a high clocked dual core or a quad that can turbo the two used cores. At least 2.2Ghz recommended.
Intel so that you will be able to take advantage if SSE3/SSE4.1 which adds 2-3 fps.

GPU:

I think this one is still be debated but most seem to say Nvidia has an edge over ATI for pcsx2.

Ram:

OS dependant and I don't think its a great prob for pcsx2, at least 2GB you should be fine.

See what others think. Blink

If you look at the recommended processors you can see how core 2 duo recommended 3.2Ghz and the i3/i5/i7 are recommended 2.66Ghz or something so architecture has a large impact on Pcsx2 as well.
CPU: i9 20Ghz 40-core
GPU: GTX 129000 in Octo-SLI

This is your best bet, can just replace processor from the i3 530 to an i5 750 if you want to also do modern 3D Gaming and or replace graphics card as well but this system as it is will handle PCSX2 great and can upgrade for modern gaming at any time.

I would have said the GTS 250 would have been enough but there was less than a $20 difference to get a GTS 450 so might as well.


forgot to put a CPU cooler on that so here this one will let you hit 4ghz easy http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6835103065
i5 2500k @4.4ghz, Gigabyte P67-UD4-B3, DDR3 8GB, Gigabyte GTX 480 SOC
Alienware M17xR2, i7 620m, DDR3 4GB, 5870M

It's foolish to make a pc just for pcsx2.
This one will run pcsx2 well and is much more powerfull in general while having the same pricetag.
The cooler should easily get it to 4ghz.

Looking at the raw performance numbers (bandwidth in particular), the GTS 450 will probably be slower than the GTS 250.

I second ChronicNL's recommendation. Should be a good all-around performer. Catch is those combo deals don't last forever so you can't take your sweet time trying to decide.

Btw, £500 isn't even nearly $1200 lol.

Hmm, would I need to overclock the processor in that setup you linked Chronic? Would that require a aftercooler? Also does the motherboard allow for upgrading in the future?
