July 9th, 2001, 16:25
do you think i could play psx games on a notebook with decent frame rate, cause i will buy a new dell inspiron, the specs are:
dell inspiron 8000
pentium !!! 1 ghz
windows 2000 professional
15" uxga screen active matrix
and the video card i don't know what's better:
geforce 2 go or a mobile ati both with 32 mb vram

You're kidding? of course it will!
Take the most powerful mobile GPU in the market: the GeForce 2 Go!!
For 50$ extra you get 32 MB DDR RAM in stead of 16 ;)
it could be done, or couldn't be done
i heard some problems about DVDROM on Notebooks having problems with PSX cds. You know, they cut stuff to make it smaller than the standard DVDROM for any desktop system.
But I hope the Dell's DVDROm doesnt have that kinda problemo

Im running ePSXe find on a IBM Thinkpad PIII with a DVDROM - I havn't had any problems so far reading any PSX CD's (apart from one REALLY scratched CD which I just ISO'ed)

I own a Toshiba TECRA 8000. 400Mhz and NeoMagic 256AV for VGA.
I never got it to work at descent fps and only using soft GPU plugins.
I hope my Boss will change it soon....
