kobe bryant is correct, 8400gs, even with 512mb vRAM wont get you that far, your having 1Gb RAM may also be a limiting factor


Id go for at least a 9600GT is budget permits, if not then Id go 9500GT as its about at par with the recommended card (7900GT)

If you are not willing to spend though then I suggest you try the demo and see from there if the 8400gs' performance is acceptable for you .The card will work since it passes the minimum requirements (technology wise since 8400GS is SM4.0 while minimum is SM3.0) but Im not sure how powerful it is versus the minimum required card (GeForce 6600)

i dont have that budget but o bought a 1gb 9400.. surprisingly, i can run the game at max level, no lags nor slow loading .. player details are ultra high and the rest are high, 1440x900 resolution works just fine.. why is that?

how many fps are you getting? how about AA and AF levels?
If we look at the games recommended videocard, it says a 7900GT

well a 7900GT is about at par with an 8600GT and a 9500GT is slightly better than an 8600GT (though they have the same 32 stream processors)
the 9400GT on the other hand has 16stream processors and half the bandwidth of the 8600GT

how the 9400GT performs that well i do not know, but since you say it does then congratulations :)


anyway how much is the 1Gb version of the 9400 versus the regular version? do you know (this is just to inform and not to discourage ok) that there is almost no benefit between the 1Gb version versus the 512 (and maybe even the 256mb?)

this is just a heads up to you guys out there who are shopping for video cards
low and midrange cards (up to the 8800GT) will not benefit much on having 1Gb of vRAM..on most situations, the card would have run out of raw power before it reaches the point where that much vRAM is used

ei Wicked Waway, i just got a NBA 2k9 on my PC and have a new specs, but sadly, i can only play it at Max Settings All, not ultra High on the Player Detail, and i can't find the AF in the Options,

here are my specs

AMD Athlon 5600+ 2.9Ghz
2gb DDR2 800 RAM
Palit 9600GT 512MB


when i try doing it @ ultra high, i get about 20 - 30 fps? what is wrong?

ultra high is only available on player details, the other options are limited to HIgh
anisotropic filtering can be forced via the nVIDIA control panel

what MSAA settings have you set it on? if you set it too high maybe the videocard cannot cope up? did you set vsync on?

in my case, I have noticed that forcing vsync on sets your fps to certain levels, with the max being the refresh rate of your monitor
then the next level for me is around 20-30fps too (intro when the arena is zoomed out)

gameplay though is at constant 60fps

if i remember correctly, vsync does this things that sets "levels" for your fps based on the max sustainable fps (and of course max is limited to your monitors refresh rate) so if you are running at around 35fps to 40fps, chances are it will set your fps lower to the targetted "average" fps you can get..im not sure about this though but i think i read an explanation like that

personally i turn vsync off for my other games, its only with NBA 2k9 that i turn it on because w/o vsync, my fps has ridiculous spikes in fps (sometimes hits 90 then drops to 70fps in a second)

try lowering your AA settings and turning vsync off

what drivers are you using? what resolution are you playing at..

I expected more from a 9600GT and the X2 5600+ isnt shabby either

I have used un-legit copies of games in the past, but never a 2k game. They have always hit the ball out of the park when in comes to the 2K basketball series, so its always good to support them financially. Last thing we want is EA to buy-Out the NBA Liscence and have a monopoly (Like they did with the NFL). As long as EA and 2K stay competitive in sales, there no reason for the NBA to give anyone exclusive right, which means EA and 2K will compete every year to bring out the best basketball game. (If you haven't noticed with Madden... Since 2K isn't a competitor anymore, they have gotten lazy with certain aspects of gameplay but they still make a butt load on sales because there is no other NFL competition on the market.)

its just that I find it unacceptable that people can buy a decent PC but not a legit game esp NBA 2k9 because its a very good game and very reasonably priced

And he's banned for it.

This is a community of people who are enthusiastic about the game enough to buy it, upgrade their pc's, or even buy the PC version over a console version(or buy both) just to get their hands on 3rd party mods. We're not a bunch of leeches.

As far as I understand, the game won't run well. And I think you need to be careful because this game needs some major resources and it might make your parents' pc work too hard. I wouldn't try it, especially that it's not your pc. But it's up to you...
I have a low-end PC (P4 3.05ghz, 1GB ram and Geforce 6200 256mb) and wouldn't even try running it.

Hey guys, I might be trading my Toshiba for a decent desktop. I dunno that the game will work or not but here are the specs for my new computer, possibly:

Biostar Motherboard P4m89-m7b
3.4GHz Intel Prescott
NEW! 2GB DDR2 667/5300 RAM
EVGA GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card
NEW! 250GB Western Digital ATA Hard Drive
NEW! LG DVD/CD-RW Combo w/ LightScribe
NEW! New Black Case w/ glow stick
NEW! 480W Power Supply
XP Pro restore disk with all drivers include

I read on here that the video card just meets the system requirements. Does anybody have a system with similar specs? Have you been able to run the game smoothly, even if the settings are on low? If I make this trade, I plan on upgrading the video card as soon as I get a job and start getting back to work.

It would work because tehcnically it meets the requirements (SM3.0)

but I doubt if its playable as it is a slow card with a slow memory interface

I see. I just had enough of posters wondering why 2K9 is so slow in their system when they don't even know their specs. I can think of many reasons why your game slows down when the crowd is shown.

1. The crowd really takes its toll on your graphics card. Try doing the aforementioned advice by lowering the crowd setting.

2. The official patch isn't yet installed in your game. It fixes some issues which may give some additional FPS.

3. Your PC sucks. I'm not too sure about the CPU, that's why.

only the videocard is holding you back :) For NBA 2k9, i would recommend at least an 8600GT level card or higher..

the 7300SE "tecnically" meets the minimum requirement which is SM3.0 but it has less raw power than the minimum card (GeForce 6600GT)

ok so heres my list (sorry guys, nVIDIA cards only :D) of which cards will be ok (take note that this is just my estimate based on the minimum and recommended specs, I havent tried playing NBA 2k9 on other systems except my own and this list is just my educated guess)

Geforce 6200, 7100,7200, 7300GS/LEm, 8400GS (and below) = technically can but power wise, is slower than the minimum so expect bad performence

Geforce 6600, 6600GT, 7300GT (DDR3), Geforce 7600GS (DDR2),8500GT = Minimum requirement level (or a tad higher than minimum)so just take a clue as to how it would perform.At this point it doesnt matter if you have 512mb and above vRAM as these cards (and slower wont be able to make good use of it anyway)

6800 series cards, 7600GT, 8600GT, 8600GTS, 9500GT, 7900 series cards = Within the recommended card range so expect to be able to crank up a few settings here and there (depending on the resolution) at this point a 512mb card should be max, in fact if you are choosing between a 256mb 8600GT and a 512mb 8600GT I would still choose the 256mb version if there is some price difference since there wont be much of a performance advantage going from 256mb to 512mb

9600 series, 8800series,9800 series = above the recommended requirement..so depending on which card you have, you can even increase setttings like AA and AF and high resolutions
GTX series = expect constant 60fps even with 8xMSAA and 16xAF :D

Maybe he can somehow get rid of the crowd and run the game smooth. I guess he could rename the street court to each stadium and play each game on blacktop to get smoother framerates.
