Need a good enoug graphics card to run my ps2 games on pcsx2. which would work the best?
9500gt 512mb DDR2 ( this on is brand new for about $45 on ebay)
9600 GSO 512MB ( this is USED and is about $35 on ebay )
Geforce GT 610 1GB ( brand new for about $39.99 at tigerdirect)
Im pretty sure the best performer would prob be 9800gso, but which should i purchase? Not sure about buying used on ebay?
I'm leaning towards the 9500GT brand new on ebay? Please help
I could take a gamble and get the used 9600gso though =s i dont know what to pick. Please help.
Please do not recommend higher tier cards, as i had a 7770 but sold it as im not a hardcore gamer. Just need something to run pcsx2 decently .
I wouldn't bother with the 9xxx series GPU's as they are getting pretty old and don't support any form of recent DirectX or OpenGL. The GT610 is a massive step down from the HD7770 you had, and is probably not going to be enough for what you want. I'm not going to recommend some UberGPU worth hundreds, only that you at least go for a GT630/HD6750. You can pick up used HD6750's for about $40 used. GT630's are about $60 new on Newegg. Either of those would be perfect for what you want to do, and better than the other suggested options.
9600gso is the best of the cards you mentioned. You should have just kept the 7770, its not a hardcore gamers card. the 9500gt or gt610 probably wont be good enough for what you want to do to be honest, they will struggle, especially if your playing anything on at 1080p resolution.
