==Hardware requirements==


The minimum hardware requirements are a graphics card with pixel shader v2.0 (which is pretty much any modern graphics card from the ATi Radeon 9600 series and later and the NVIDIA GeForce FX series) and SSE2 CPU (non-SSE2 CPUs cannot run PCSX2, however they are quite old so this shouldn't be a problem). Most PCSX2 emulated games are not hungry for GPU power but are dependent on the CPU. However, certain scenes in some games can be slowed down significantly if your graphics card is weak. Care must also be taken when running PCSX2 on laptops. Some of them are not designed to work on constant 100% load and can suffer damage from overheating. Investing on a decent laptop cooler is a good idea.<br />

For DirectX 10 mode you will need a DirectX 10 capable card (NVIDIA GeForce 8000 series or ATi Radeon HD 2000 series at the least) running under Windows Vista or Windows 7.<br />
