Time for a change

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I bought a graphics card last week based on answers givin buy ocn. The card was miles ahead of the prior card. it made dead space look straight up amazing. Well yesterday i got metro 2033. the first problem i had was missing phszloader.dll. i found it and installed though its dumb to have nvidia drivers with amd graphics. i started playing and i dont know if my card just sucks or what but the game looks terrible on any setting i put it on. i think alot of the computer concerns i have now started when i went to amd graphics. can some one please help me get the best nvidia card for around 250.00 out the door please. think ill go ahead and use nvidia again. unless the graphics in metro just suck. and if thats the cause ill just get a better amd card.

Either you are a troll or just a clueless Nvidia fanboy.

If the game looks "horrible" on any setting, then obviously you have done something wrong. Remove anything Nvidia related, can't believe you were trying to use Nvidia drivers with an AMD card. Did it even work?

A 6850 isn't nearly enough power to max out Metro. May I ask what settings you were playing on?

What nVidia drivers? on an AMD card?
post #5 of 23
This is a FAIL on soooo many levels, the best nVidia card for around that price is the GTX560Ti, Why would you buy a HD6850 if you have a $250 budget? I think we have a troll on our hands..

Not a troll. im just dumb. So i downloaded the game from steam. it installed. when i tried to load the game it keep giving me an error code and saying phsxloader.dll missing. i googled it and found other people with amd graphics where having the same problem. it said to download the dll. put the dill in program. i did this. the game ran, it just did not look good.
i did not have a 250 dollar buget at that time. i have the 6850 that i can take back to frys pluse like 60 more dollars i can spend on a new card tomorrow. dont assume so much.

Did you have a Nvidia card before purchasing your 6850?

Did you uninstall drivers for your old card and use driver sweeper to clean up before installing new drivers?

If not you really should otherwise your going to run into all sorts of problems.

Also as others have stated your 6850 is nowhere near enough to max Metro2033, that game will make the most powerful cards cry on max settings.

Wait wait wait

you seriously thought you could max out metro 2033 on a 23inch monitor with a 6850?
