Will RAM help my emulator at all?
#1
i am going to get more RAM for my computer on way or the other cause i only have 2 GB and i have been gaming on my pc a lot so i kinda need more but the question is if i get more RAM will it make pcsx2 run any better because games on it r playable but a bit slow being stuck in the 35-40 fps range

not really, it uses not much ram, if you want more speed, it would be wise to post the following:

game(s) you want to play
pc specs (cpu, gpu, operating system these are the big 3)
pcsx2 settings

RAM will play only a minor role

k2i3n4g5 If you want to overclock your CPU by 400-700mhz that would probably make a nice difference. Just make sure you have a heat sink up to the job. If you want some help, just ask on the hardware part of the forums. I had a 4800+ a few years ago, and that was a nice overclocker.

More ram will improve your overall system performance. I went from 512MB to 1GB, 1GB to 2GB, 2GB to 4GB. with each upgrade i noticed a significiant improvement. If you're a heavy multi-tasker then you will love the 4gb of ram .
