sayang bro, for P300 more you could have gotten a 9500GT GDDR3

http://www.rsun.com.ph/catalog.php?cat=VPC

but anyway, if it works fine for you then its all good :D

To any RP based guys looking for a cheap card here is a good one, 9600GT for only P3850..
I remember buying an 8800GTS 320mb last 2007 for P17000+ and this one is about as strong and oh so cheap..damn

Yeah, my bad, I was very eager to buy a new graphic card that I forgot to check other stores. It was too late, I already purchased a 9400gt when I saw another store that sells a 9500gt for P2500. (sa katapat na tindahan lang yun bro ng binilihan ko ng 9400gt)

congrats on the new card anyway :D

can you do me a favor bro? can you run the fraps benchmark (f11) Id like to see the minimum and maximum a 9400GT can do, would also be helpful to the thread to see how each card performs

might also be a good idea for a thread eh? so those shopping for graphics cards can see which one will be good enough for their needs/budget

anyway heres mine

Can I run NBA 2k9?


I honestly don't know how well(probably not well at all) an onboard graphics chip will run the game, but the minimum ATI chip that is supported is an ATI x1300 with 128 mb of video ram. The 3000 should be supported.

If you can afford to put down some more money and buy a videocard along with that system, you will be in good shape for running the game on max settings plus eye candy if necessary.

It all depends on what your main focus is for wanting to buy a computer.

Well, the seller lets me add a 512MB nVIDIA 8400GS PCI-EX VIDEO CARD for $43. Would I be able to run it then? Also, I'm thinking of expanding the RAM to 6gb.

Or would adding a 512MB GeForce 9400GT DVI/HDCP PCI-EXPRESS VIDEO CARD for $53 be better for gameplay?

You would be able to play it ok with either of those videocards. I'm not sure how much videocard power is really needed to run the game on maximum. That is what you want, right? To run the game on maximum settings, with moving jerseys and high res crowd? If you aren't worried about playing on maximum settings, then get one of those cards you mentioned. Otherwise, look into buying a videocard separately.

If you want to be able to play other games on your computer that are new, you may have to spend $100 on the videocard alone.

I'm looking to just be able to play the game at a modest setting with good fps, so I'd say around high, very high settings. Would getting the 9400 make a big difference? I can live without max settings. I'm not really planning on playing any other games, besides 2k10 if it's any good.

no point upgrading to 6Gb, just save the money for a better videocard

a 9400GT would be ok at low resolutions (i guess) based on christian.'s post

NBA 2K9 Settings:
800x600
MSAA: Off
MSAA Quality: N/A

All in high settings
Player in Ultra High
All ON

Vsync ON
nba2k9 2009-06-04 10-56-32-48

So yeah if you are running at that resolution then I guess youd be ok, other than that try to push the budget to at least an 8600GT/9500GT or even a 9600GT these shouldnt

I was checking newegg and the price difference between a 9400GT and a 9600GT can be less than $10 but the performance gap is HUGE making the difference well worth it..

Know what? You might as well go for a better budget card. Spend at least $100 and you will be fine.

This 3870 is a 100.

I agree with Pdub

if you are shopping for a videocard, go with at least a 9600GT/HD3870/8800GT/9800GT these are cheap nowadays and some can be had for below $100

the price difference between them and the more expensive but current gen low end cards like a 9500GT isnt much considering the huge performance difference

heres some "random" charts I found on the web and see how a big jump in performance there is from a 9500GT to a 9600GT..again this 9500GT is about the same as an 8600GT and is better than a 9400GT (dont care if 512mb or 1 or 2Gb as it wont be able to use that amount of vRAM anyway)

I think this a $20 price difference is very much justified

hi guys..i have a little problem on getting a consistent fps.
here is my system:
amd athlon 64 x2 5000+ 2.61ghz
2gb of ram
9600gt 1gb
windows xp sp2
updated all drivers..

im getting about 45-55 fps but there are times that it suddenly goes down. it really annoys me because it is so noticeable. i believe i can get more with my system. any help is appreciated.. thanks guys..

by the way i got all my settings on high except the crowd, it is on medium.. i cannot put the players on ultra high because of the lag.. :(

do you have AA on? I suggest you try to lower AA first, or try turning vync on

here are my benchmark results and i can tell you that with vsync on my fps may be lower but at least consistent (thus feeling smoother) versus vsync off where I get higher fps but higher fluctuations. I would also suggest you try to check your AA settings maybe its set too high?

which one is smoother for you? vsync on or off?

I see you can hit over 60fps even with vsync on? are you using a CRT monitor?

vsync on is much smoother for me..
yeah i notice that too. i can see that even if i turn on or off vsync i can hit high fps but only differs in fluctuations.. im using a crt monitor..does that affect anything?

Postby wicked waway on Sat Jun 27, 2009 12:27 am

CRT monitors have high refresh rates hence you get a higher cap for FPS with vsync on (your fps will be capped to your monitor's refresh rate)

LCD monitors on the other hand are typically limited to 60hz (there are 120hz ones but very expensive at the moment) so with vsync on, the FPS would be capped to a max of 60fps

now if your system can average above 60fps that would more or less mean you can keep your fps at a steady 60fps thus avoiding huge fluctuations.
I havent played around much with the nvidia control panel though with the exception of forcing 16X AF

can you try turning both vsync and triple buffering if it helps? just a guess though but might be worth a try

I'm purchasing a new laptop next week because I need an upgraded system. I'm not dumb but I'm not an expert on things like this. Does one of these systems would work with NBA 2K9 PC? If someone who is an expert could tell me I would appeciate that.

1. 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor P7450 (2.13GHz, 3 MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB) or

2. NVIDIA® GeForce® 9600M GT

Video Memory:
512MB DDR3 discrete memory + up to 1791MB shared memory
Intel® Core™2 Duo T9400 2.53GHz Processor

3.
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor P8700 (2.53GHz)
NVIDIA® GeForce® 9800M GTS graphics

2 or 3. Depends on the price. But any of them will run 2k9.

Personally I'd pick 2nd one - I have a similar laptop.

hi guys i can play nba 2k9 all high .

zotac 8600gt 256mb

amd athlon le-1600 2.2ghz

1.5gig 667mhz ram

and in nvdia setting it is set to quality.

well i wanted to play in ultra high so i am planning to upgrade to amd athlon 64 x2 5200+.

will it work for me? well for me i think it will and will be smooth.. since its a huge jump from a single core with low clock speed. :)


what do you think?

Re: NBA 2K9 System Requirements-Can I run the Game?

Postby dopeboy on Sun Aug 16, 2009 11:17 pm

Can anyone help me? I've been playing 2k9 for about 2 months. I could run it smoothly with everything maxed out (occasional crashes though because of display driver). After I upgraded my display driver, it got worse.

At first, the performance was ok and suddenly got worse for a while, a couple of days later it just was bad all the time. It happened with Fallout 3 as well (only the 1st part), so I found another display driver (the latest, with modded inf file). It fixed the issue with Fallout 3, but 2k9 is still the same. I'm sure it's the display driver because I haven't done anything else that could affect it so much.

The problem is that I can't fix it. I reinstalled the display driver, but that doesn't change anything. And I know that I was doing it the right way. Maybe someone has had a similar problem?

I feel even more bad because I have it for only 2 months.. :?

I'm using GeForce 8600M GT on my laptop. Yeah, it's overheating. Usually when I was checking the temperature with Everest, it was medium to high, but nothing to be worried about. I just checked it with FanGUI, and it's definetely way too high. Any idea how could I solve it, at least while I buy an external cooler or do something like that? I can't afford to do anything else now, since my studies start in 2 weeks and I'll need my laptop there.

EDIT I already had the latest BIOS and manually setting fan speed to high doesn't help.

my friend has a intel 4; 2,66, single core, 1gb ram and an old graph.card. since there's only a agp (not a pci-e) he's think of buying a hd3850.
will he be able to play nba 2k9? (on what settings) should he double he's ram as well?


can some1 speculate, what will be requirments for 2k10?

What's the brand of your laptop? If it's HP, you're fucked.

If you know how to, clean the insides of your laptop with some compressed air to remove dust build up.

Know what is exactly the thing that is overheating, GPU or CPU?
If it's the CPU I think you can place a new thermal paste to be in contact with heat sink/metal plate that's linked to the exhaust fan.
I think opening your laptop voids the warranty though.

If you still have a warranty, contact Dell and see if they will fix it.

It's still under warranty. I hope that placing a new thermal paste will be enough.

I'm more concerned about GPU, but CPU temperature is higher than it should be too. Not as much as GPU though. I'll try to contact Dell today. Hopefully repairing it won't take too much time.

Thanks.
