    Hello i am new here and am looking for some input. I just purchased a new gaming laptop as my current laptop is pretty old and is not doing it for me anymore. I am wondering if my laptop has specs good enough to run PCSX2 games such as the Shadow hearts series and the Fatal Frame series SMT: Nocturne. and P3: Fes at a good frame rate? and even some gamecube games like Resident Evil Zero and some of the REmakes? thank you

    Comp model: Lenovo Ideapad Y500

    Cpu: Intel Core i5-3230M 2.6GHz

    GPU: 2GB Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI GDDR5

    Ram: 6GB DDR3

    HDD: 1TB 5400 RPM

    OS: Windows 8

    actually here is the link.

    If you get one of the AVX or SSE optimized builds of Dolphin you will be able to play any Gamecube/Wii game without any issue. Maybe even at 1080p. These are not the main builds, though, so you will need to skulk around their forums some.

    As far as PCSX2 I can't say... I would guess the answer is the same, though.

    Dolphin/PCSX2 run on my laptop without a hinch (check my specs in the signature) and your is almost as powerful, so it's safe to say you've got yourself a good enough emulation device for both.

    Ah thank you very much. There is a lot of ps2 and gamecube games and even wii that i would like to play. So i was really hoping this would work well. i hope the i5 is fine compared to the i7 in gaming though. Thanks for everything!

    It is not going to run on high/upscaled graphics, native will be fine.

    SLI is only useful in selected supported games. No emulator can take advantage of SLI.
