Give up. the pentium D is simply not good enough.
You have no idea about what pcsx2 requires for most games to run at playable speeds. Thus, it IS a good advice.Pentium D happens to work absolutely fine with everything I've tried to play, so that's actually really bad advice
of course if you're testing both on disgaea 2...It also so happens to be wholly irrelevant. Sure actual Dual-Core processors outperform Pentium D in most comparable tasks, but remember they both have two cores - really, the difference isn't substantial, though I'm not saying it isn't noticeable.
Of course you do. And it wouldn't have been the best choice to use pcsx2 anyways.I could have just spent $150 on a new motherboard and 4 core processor if I didn't know what I was doing - but thankfully, I do.
