Sticky Will PCSX2 run fast on my computer?

Intel i7-4770

Intel HD Graphics 4600

it can run the football games smoothly at 50fps with default settings, It can also run GTA San Andreas at default settings 50fps.

I think DELL 5577 i7 would be a very good choice if you don't want a very high end gaming laptop that can run these games smoothly at a decent quality.

What settings are you using to play football games. I have a laptop with I7 8550u processor, 16gb ram and integrated Intel hd 620 graphics but my Madden nfl 2k3 is super laggy

he's playing pal so I assume his "football' means "soccer" in the U.S.  anyway your cpu should be fine but the iGPU is weak. use pcsx2 1.5 and play only in native resolution in hardware mode or just use software mode with a couple extra threads. it may be faster

For demanding titles you really want over 2,000 for the rest we generally recomend 1,600 or so.  This will tell you what your CPU is capable of assuming it can run it's best.  If the manufacturer does not have good cooling or power delivery then even a great CPU will have issues.  There is no great rule or test for this besides research (using google) on what other owners of said product say about how it performs, or if your lucky a reputable site might have done stress testing for you (popular models only usually).

If you can get a discrete GPU then that is better.  If that GPU is an Nvidia then it will have even more compatibility with the OpenGL backend (which is the best current backend for PCSX2 with the least issues... besides software).

If you are goi2ng to say price is not an issue then I will list stupid things
Asus GX800vh it has a full desktop GPU (GTX 1080sli) and CPU ( overclocked 7820hk), water cooled, 18" screen.  It is also huge heavy and over $6,000 US.  If you give me a budget and a wishlist of what you need, what you want, and what would be nice but not important then I can recomend some more sane choices.  Though the Asus would rn PCSX2 very very well.

Ok fair point, I guess I was a bit vague.

Again, I am really not clued up at all - I guess i'll have to do more research before asking what to buy. I have been told if I get an i5 processor with a decent graphics card it should run fine - but this is from someone who also isn't very clued up.

Such as the Acer Nitro 5?
