nVidia or ATI? Any difference?
I've read on some threads on some emu forums that blatenty say that nVidia GPUs work better with PCSX2. Can any one shead some light on that?

The only real reason why I was thinking about is that I know my 8800GTS's will out fold my HD4850's even though the HD4850 is much better at traditional PC gaming. The G92 core just seems to do math faster than the RV770 core. Not really a big secret there.

Think this same quality would help out PCSX2? I know I've already run across people on this forums with 8600GTs that supposedly are having better performance than me in PCSX2. I might try it anyway...but I'd rather not tear my folding farm apart if I am just going to put it back together again if I can help it.

Nvidia GPU have always worked better on GSdx, gabest doesn't have an ATI (that I know of) to test out the plugins on, so they can't be optimized for ati at all, thus far, nvidia has always been the way to go
in my expirience Nvidia for every emulator Oo dunno why
my bro had always ATI and I had always Nvidia kk except for two cards.. AdrenalineRush(Voodoo) and ATI Rage 3D xD

my bro has more troubles with emulators than I have

hmm...and I am new here so I haven't gotten into all the nuts and bolts, but it seems like the PS2 is a number cruncher. It even has a FPU co-processor. Never really had a reason to wonder how my PS2 worked till started not to.

So if floating point math is what drives it then nVidia will be better even with a lesser GPU. Sorry, I guess I sort of answered my own question, but I guess it is a good toppic.

nVidia has always been better for me IMHO, more stability, faster GPU, RAM, etc and with a nVidia GeForce GTS 250 PCSX2 runs beautifully. I've had bad experiences with ATI, but that's just my opinion.
My HD4850 doesn't seem to GPU bottleneck in any game, many games I can run at 2048x1152 internal resolution (my monitor res) without any GPU related slowdown, I always bottleneck on my 4.1ghz E8400 first

nVidia has MUCH better driver support overall, I always recommend them.
Want to stream your games? Let me know and I can help you get set up with Open Broadcaster Software.
Agreed, my main gripe with ATI is the crap drivers.
i have both AMD and ATI and i run all games with "playable" status at full speed ^_^
Check my profile for hardware/software and games i played on PCSX2.
i like nvidia more, but i hate nvidia antialiasing, i hear that ATI dont have same problem when it comes to AA

rummor is that Nvidia use fake AA to gain speed on slower hardware
