What are the factors that increases the fps?
#1
Question 
Exactly what are the different factors affecting the fps of a game?

I understand (from searching the forums of course! Tongue) that the..

1) Processor (including the number of processors)
2) Brand of Processor (Intel > AMD)
3) GPU
4) Brand of GPU (Nvidia >ATI)
5) The Game (Some games are graphic intensive)
6) Settings

are all factors.

Is there anything else I missed?



And also, what is more important for ps2 emulation in ALL of the factors?

(E.g. Better to upgrade from e2160 to e8500 then from 8600GT to GTX260)

Thanks in advance to those who reply!

one thing to add would be using ISO images over CD/DVD

and most important factor is CPU
CPU : i7 4930k @ 4.0GHz
RAM : Corsair Vengeance 8x8GB 1603MHz 1.60v
GPU : Asus R9 290X 4GB
MOBO: Asus Rampage Extreme IV
OSYS: Windows 10 Pro

Thanks for replying fast! (2mins? wtf?)

Will the type of image be also considered? (ISO > MDS) Or are they practically the same?

no, images in .img .bin .iso etc are all the same to pcsx2

Does the brand of your GPU really have a BIG impact on the emulation?

Because I'm torn between a GTX 260 and a 4870, which are nearly identical in performance.

i dont think its that large of an impact when you get into the higher performance cards. i dont think many of us 4850/70 owners complain

From what I've read, the 4870 is actually a pretty good smidgin better then the GTX 280. Enough difference to make people sway for the HD 4870 instead of the GTX 260.

You've read wrong... For the record, the GTX 280 is discontinued..

The 4870 used to be better than the 192 core GTX260, however since the GTX260 got revised, the GTX260 216 core is better than the 4870.
The GTX 280 destroys the 4870.

The GTX 285 was the revised GTX280.

dont forget the ram speed and the latency.

good mobo also has some impact, if they can provide some extra bus speed then perf also increased.
If you download the PS2 bios illegally, you are breaking the law. Courts around the world have ruled that businesses and individuals can be prosecuted for illegal downloading.
