I have a 3850 and I run on maximum. In order to do that, you need a double core cpu if you want the jerseys to move. So, a 3850 will get him running the game, but not on maximum with that "intel 4." He could probably put most things at ultra high, but he can't put players at ultra high.

Darn! This sucks! I downloadedd the demo some time ago and for some reason the full game won't work! I thought the whole point of a demo was that you could play the full version if the demo worked! Wholey crud! I just need .4 ghz! Does anyone know how to get steam to let it go?

I recall reading that 2K10 would run better on lower range systems, but yes similar system requirements.

Sure. More ram is always better, but ram doesn't usually improve performance much by itself.

I don't know. Steam shouldn't completely stop you from running a game just because your cpu has a little less mhz.

Just some info:
Pdub: my friend upgraded he's pc to hd3650, 2gb ram (2,66 ghz, single core) and he can't run the game as high as hoped (all high, player detail also high, not very high), in fact he told that the game isn't even fluent with the minimum settings :P but it know it shows more than just black screen! ;)

So everybody with similar pc's would know, it can run it, but at minimum settings with some lag here and there.

thnx for support!

Postby Pdub on Thu Sep 03, 2009 6:59 am

I have a 3850 and a dual core 2.66 with 3 gb of ram. The 3850 can run games twice as fast as the 3650, especially if his 3650 is a 128-bit instead of a 256-bit. He can't run very high player detail without a second core, which was known since the game was released. The cloth animations need that extra thread. If he can't get the game running well on minimum, then his system isn't optimized for running games, or he has his eye candy cranked up in his video card control panel.

No, you won't even crack minimum settings. Ya see, 2K9/2K10 actually looks better than real life.

If you are talking about my post, then you misunderstood me. Right now I have light years old PC and I don't know a thing about hardware in present days. I stopped following PC hardware when Geforce 4 came out.

PS. I didn't even check system requirements for 2k9.

Sorry again, I'm not like that

PDUB. my bad, he got and hd 3850. i typed it incorrectly..not an 3650, but a 3850. it's seems that the problem is in the single core. i have no doubts in that vid.card.

"then his system isn't optimized for running games, or he has his eye candy cranked up in his video card control panel." - What does this mean, is there anything he can do to speed it up?

thnx mate!

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

Postby jubigala on Fri Apr 30, 2010 4:34 pm

My system runs the game, i have to run it in the smallest window, bu it's not a bad bad thing, it's like running it on an emulator.

I have all my settings on low, to speed up the game, but i've noticed a couple of odd things, maybe you guys can answer them for me.

On menus, the game zips around very quickly.
If i run some modes, the gameplay is very quick, like in practice or blackout modes.

But when i play a game, i notice my game is actually very quick (no adjustment) when i'm in my backcourt, but the game slows down immediately as i play in the opposition half. When the opponent gets the ball, it's quick for them on possession. I'm very impressed by this game it clearly runs to a decent standard.. but it just needs that something to make it a bit quicker. I've upped the game speed, and that helps a lot, but obviously when i'm not suffering 'lag' (i play offline) the game is too zippy.

Also, i have sound in a game, but it's just the crowd. I have no commentary, but all my settings for audio are up to date.

I assume my sound card is suitable, but i'm puzzled why i have no commentary, but i get arena noise (music, chants etc)

Any anyone got any ideas? I will need to update my video card, but i'm not into specs at all, so i wouldn't know what i'm talking about.

Hmm. You need to update. First I've had an intel graphics card, but I see that its not enough and I bought a card (125 TL, 62,5 €). The name is NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT. Its great.

My specs:
(desktop)

Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU - E4500 @2.20GHz
1.00 GB RAM
Nvidia GeForce 7200 GS

Not sure what the spec of my sound card is, all i know is that it's realtek.

I can run this game in the smallest window, which isn't really a massive problem, but settings have to be low and the game is not fluid when i am in the opponents half, or they in my half.

Upgrade my video card? Or is it the actual PC performance as well?

Hey guys I'm planning to buy a new pc, so far here is what my build is:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93 Ghz
Memory: 2GB DDR2
Hard Drive: 160GB
Video Card: Sparkle GT220 1024MB DDR3
MotherBoard: Gigabyte GA-G31M-ESC

it's on a very low price but I think it's nice.

So can I ran a smooth 2k10 or maybe 2k11 on this :)

Of course it's a low price. That is old. It's still capable of running NBA 2K, but won't last for the future. Save up a couple more hundred and get something with at least four cores and DDR3 system memory, not to mention a top notch graphics card/chip. The GT220 is a budget chip from October of last year.
