for the controller, I am using a ps2 controller that i use for pc... i guess that's enough...how many buttons do you really need to play this game hehehe...



A ton I think. Check out the post about 2k9 Controls. At least in the console versions, you can control all kinds of shot types, mostly with the right shot stick.

The 3650 is $54.99 + $8.25 shipping - $20 rebate. That's $43.24, right in your price range. It's a good card. You won't get bragging rights with your friends but it should allow you to run 2k9 at medium settngs.

You have a PS2 controller. The 360 controller has no more buttons than a PS2 controller.

ehh... a $24.99 card won't last you 2 years if your planning to go long term.

Just don't be cheap with these things, get the newest and get a affordable ones.

Oh snap, that changes everything. The shipping would probably cost you more than the card. Newegg doesn't ship internationally. Sorry.

Not good. You might as well not upgrade. Those cards won't allow you to play anything. That card is $25 + $8 shipping. The 3850 I mentioned before is $45. Is $12 really that hard for you to come up with? It makes a world of difference.

You've gotta know your audience Oreo. A guy who's asking about a $25 video card isn't going to be buying a $200 video card. I agree with you that the 8400 is crap and won't play ANYTHING though.

Do a GF8800 and you'll be more than fine. 8600 and 9600 would probably be more than enough for 2K9 anyway.

Everyone needs to read this thread before posting. Find the link I posted, do the BioShock test, and if you pass that I will say you're going to have zero problems with 2K9. If not, it'll tell you the holes to plug.

I don't like to browse 4 pages that are almost filled with retardation from some posters, including me.

EDIT: Woot! it passed. Even the recommended spec test. Sweetness.

I don't know any large retail companies in the US that will ship to Indonesia. You may have to go on Ebay and buy a card secondhand. Or if you have relatives or friends here, ask them to ship it to you.

The ATI 2600Pro is slightly worse than the 3650 I mentioned but it should be good enough to run 2k9 at minimum to average settings. Don't bother with the others. They won't let you do anything else other than browse the web.

i call it the "2600 downgraded" =))

but the 2600 cost me pretty much, how about the GF8600?? maybe i barely could buy it.

Nice confg. put my advice to you is Geforce 8600GT it will boost your VGA performance too the double in compare with the Geforce 8500GT and the difference in prices is minor. :wink:

The 2400 gives the same performance as a Radeon 9800 pro. I had that and was able to play NBA Live 08 on it. But this is 2k9 which is next gen. You may not get such great performance.

How much is the 2400 and 2600 in Indonesia?

Enh, yeah, you might get away with absolute minimum. Could be very very iffy though.

Did you run the test I linked earlier in the thread? That'll do better than any off the cuff comments of forum posters.

I hope this game has Vibration Feedback (rumble support) so i can hook up my 360 controller and play like I'm playing a 360 :D
