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.
is there a card i can get for around 250 that i can max out the game on. also i did have and nvidia card before. i cleared out all the application relating to this though.

If budget allows, get a 6950. If not, get a 6870.

For me to maX out metro 2033 on very high and 4xaa with 60+ fps I used 2x 6950s unlocked and overclocked in crossfire.

The rest of u need to chill out and give the guy a break. Not everyone is as elite as you guys think you are.

Your gonna need a 580 or a 6970 if you want to max it out i.e. full Dx11, AA etc (and even these are not going to give you a solid 60fps)

I'm sorry but your card isn't up to the task. You could possibly but another 6850 and crossfire it, but thats up to you if you wish to go down that route.

Your best bet is to switch off the DX11 features turn down the AA settings and see how it runs, it'll still look gorgeous I promise. If your still having issues turn each setting down a notch 1 by 1 until it's running smoothly.

Ok i can get a 6950. some of those can unlock to a 6970 right? i think ill go with that option. then i can make them game look better. thanks to both of you for not making me feel dumb asking a question. also any idea what that phsxloader thing means and due i need to get rid of it?

I believe you need a reference 6950 to be able to unlock it and even then it's not 100% guaranteed to work. Do a little research and find out which card has the beat chance of unlocking.

As to the physxloader.dll thats going to be for physx (a feature thats only available on Nvidia cards) I've no idea why it's asking you for that with an AMD card.

I'm sure you know resolution is what matters and not monitor size, correct?
