PS2 is obviously intended to "run best on Nvidia", why wouldn't a lower end Nvidia card be listed over an ATI card that is technically higher end?PS: Case in point:http://www.planetside2.com/Scroll to I have an Athlon X2 3800 and a 1950 Pro, and would like to be sure that a 3850 is the way to go for the next year rather than blowing Advertisement Recent Posts Broken Image on Site (Wix) Stefischer replied Feb 13, 2017 at 1:28 AM Can add files to microSD card... :z: replied Feb 13, 2017 at 1:15 AM News https://forums.techguy.org/threads/is-the-ati-radeon-x1600pro-w-256mb-up-to-snuff.471346/

And to be fair, there is some wiggle room, as one person may think that 20 frames per second on minimum settings is fine, while another thinks 30 is unplayable.after looking no it wont the patch is software/client side. I have been looking for a game to play, and was pointed to this game, so I picked it up with the SO exp pack for $35. I also have Vantec copper RAM heatsinks and I went so far as to put little Vantec copper heatsinks on each of the chips on the graphics card.

Games are loading sooo much info into ram anymore that upgrading your hard drive is also something to consider.

your laptop is no where near requirements. I just installed a PCI slot fan under the GFX card which has helped with cooling.

In this case, SoE has partnered with Nvidia and both SoE and Nvidia are gearing PS2 to run better on Nvidia cards then on ATI. I already commented in the thread (Post #6) on how quirky and off the specs were. That's usually because they have some form of partnership withthe GPU builders or because the game is specifically optimized for that brand card. Ingrated graphics is the minimum of the minumum, its like being a private in the army, its sucks. (that was cool ) so if u do buy a new laptop, make

I don't hate SOE the way some people do, but their web site has to be costing them customers. this content Share this page Search World Wide Words Recently added or updated Not my pigeon; Subnivean; Black as Newgate knocker; Boxing Day; Chalazion; Fizgig; Spin a yarn; What am I?

To address a few points: Iíve heard good things about ATI, but Iíve always used NVIDIA cards. I mean, that's pretty straightforward - so I'm not sure where the confusion's coming from... It's not about the requirements being coherent or not - it's about the level of the requirements and having an understanding of the hardware out there being used by the masses.
