    Default Does the extra RAM make a big Difference?

    I'm planning to get a psp and I've been trying to decide between the psp 1000 and the psp 2000. I wanna 1000 since it is cheaper and seems more sturdy, but the extra RAM on the 2000 is sure making my decision more difficult. So I'm asking you guys if the extra RAM in the psp 2000 would make snes/ps1/gba/etc emulation better or some other advantages it has. Thanks.

    It makes a difference when it's actually used.
    And, it's usually not used.
    Only emulators I know that uses it are the SNES ones.
    I may be wrong, as I don't use many emulators.

    NJ's MVSPSP 2.31 & CPS2PSP 2.31 PSP Slim only emulators take advantage of the extra memory.

    You don't have to create the "cache" files required to get the roms to load like you do on the PSP 1000.

    The only disadvantage there is it will take up more space on your memory stick for the cache files.

    The other advantage is the extra memory required for Skype, if you plan on using that feature.

    Also when using High Memory Mods, (Like for the PSP Browser) you don't get nagged about "Not enough Memory" bs all the time.

    Really, the boast about extra memory shouldn't be a selling point.
    If that's all you're worried about, get the cheaper Phat 1000.

    If I were you I would get the slim. Speaking from someone who has both a PSP1001k and a PSP2001k the slim is hands down more enjoyable to play. Not only is it thinner but it is also lighter. The only reason I would choose the fat would be if the slim couldn't run 5.50GEN-D because of a bad motherboard version.

    Please do remember that some older slims can run gen d3.

    @thread:
    Since you're considering the psp fat, i'll assume you're gonna get a 2nd hand psp. Just go get a psp slim w/ ta88v2 and below mobo. Another emulator that makes use of the extra ram of the slim is daedalusX64.

    Would I sound realistic if I told you my life?


    I don't think so.

    get a cheap psp go (around £90 in the UK pre-owned, around $120 in the USA) and put 6.35 pro-b on it, trust me, snes emulation is spot on perfect, all but a few gba games are truly fantastic too, psp go is definitely the way to go if seeking performance.
