I have a MSI GTX 260 1792mb. when I started metro 2033 and played the prologue I am getting only 19 fps.My card should be able to handle the high settings.I can max out crysis easily without anti aliasing with my card.Even on normal settings its still falling in the twenties.My resolution is 1680X1050 with an Intel core i7 870 and 4gb ddr3 ram

More about : metro 2033

Are you sure about the card? Is it a GTX 260 or GTX 295?

Metro 2033 is not exactly Crysis. Metro 2033 is like Crysis, 2-3 years ago.

With a 6970, I can play Crysis with Ultra settings and x2 AA at 1920x1200.

I play Metro 2033 at Normal/Medium settings with x4 AA.

You should be playing it at high, at least. Just have AAA enabled and things will be much better. You really don't need AA at that resolution, if you can live with a few jaggies.

Speak for yourself. I honestly don't know if AAA does anything at all. The aliasing drives me nuts, especially the glimmering effect as the aliasing travels around objects. It's like those Christmas lights that move to me.

Another issue for me, if I don't have over 40 FPS consistently, I get simulator sickness.

And lastly, Metro 2033 looks awesome at medium settings. I don't see much of a difference between medium and high. I see a much bigger difference when seeing lower FPS and aliasing.

You're mistaken.It can either be a GTX 260 896MB GDDR3 or the GTX 295 1792 MB GDDR3. A GTX 260 1792 MB does not exist.

you're asking way too much out of your gtx260. i suspect you have advanced physx on as well.

The difference, though subtle, is noticeable

But as you say, Metro looks very good even with normal settings.

I'm not saying it's not noticeable, just that it's not a big difference. Not a big enough difference to go without x4 AA and/or lower FPS.

I suppose it depends on your resolution. Like I said, this is like Crysis 2-3 years ago. Unless you have a top of the line card, you aren't playing at high with AA on. It would take SLI/Crossfire for very high.

In a couple years, as they continue to use it for benchmarking, people will be playing at high.

But seriously, look how awesome it looks at medium. High just has some better lighting effects. Nothing major.

Edit: Without 4xAA and a smaller resolution, the 460 may be able to handle it at high.

play it under dx9. that would give you a hefty amount of fps boost.

and to the dude who can't believe about the 1792 gtx260-216, i laf.

Set the quality to High (not very high) with AAA and you should be fine.

Playing under Dx9 just takes away more effects. DX11 is actually faster when the same code is run. Although it may have a good compromise in settings which could work well.

I forgot, you are referring to his current card, not the 460.

my resolution is 1680X1050 will the gtx 460 handle the game in dx 10 high mode.I don't like lowering resolution because image quality is degraded

I set it to dx 10 high with AAA and advanced physx off and when I get outside in that level I got 22 fps.Also when there is a lot of light the game lags.

Yes, Metro 2033 is really heavy game like Crysis 2-3 years ago. I have i5 @ 3.8ghz, 4GB DDR3, HD 4890 OC and I had to play it with medium details to play it smoothly. High details (without AA) were something like 20fps, too.

@ celpas, on a single gtx 480 oced 100mhz I was still only getting about 25-30 fps with all the eye candy turned on. If your looking to upgrade to a 460 i doubt you'll get what your looking for without a pair of them in sli.

@ celpas: Like others have said, Metro 2033 is very, very, VERY hard on the system requirements, your results are pretty much as I would expect.
At that resolution you'll see better framerates with a GTX460, my rig (in its HD5850 incarnation) plays at 1920x1200, DX10, AAA 16xAF and High pretty flawlwssly, and I'm certain it'll play even better with an Nvidia card.
Of course with the flashed HD6950 it's even better... Thank you Santa :)
