What PSU do you have? | Report abuse redblade_88 March 22, 2010 3:24:39 PM i have an acbel 660W psu. I'm thinking its a gpu bottleneck issue but i'm not so sure. The game runs ok with 8xAA max video setting @ 1440x900 but it only averages @ 30fps. I want to run it @ 60 fps solid.

Radeon 5770 is also a popular choice. You wont need anything more powerful than those for that game. | Report abuse redblade_88 March 22, 2010 3:54:03 PM Best answer selected by redblade_88. | Report abuse itsgrandpa March 29, 2010 6:38:26 AM Would 4870 vapor-x be an equivalent as well?? | Report abuse tuesday0108 April 3, 2010 5:46:32 PM It's GPU issue. I was running the game on a E5200 2.5gig dual core with a GTX 260 216 shader and maxed it at 1680x1050. Bench mark said I was getting 45ish frames on average. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Video Games>Resident Evil 5 question: What do I need?
