I have a problem with my metro 2033
I cannot play this game because when i run it i receive a message from monitor which says "Cannot display this resolution,,,,Optimal resolution 1280x1024x60Hz
THen i must reboot computer in safe mode and logging with low resolution because when i reboot in normal mode it still keep saying the message
Cannot display this resolution,,,,Optimal resolution 1280x1024x60Hz

i just made some modifications on the user.cfg file and opened the game in windowed mode
but when i play this game in windowed mode i receive 100% gpu load even in minimum settings

NOTE: GPU load is 60-70% when in fullscreen but with the same framerate with 100% gpu load in windowed mode (i tested this with a lot of games NFS the run etc)

SO i love my pc and i dont wonna broke it
Pc specs 8 gig ram core
i7 2600k 3.4GHz
ASUS GTX 680 2gig

what res is the native for your monitor?

You can never exceed this, if you try to in windowed mode the GPU will scale the image, which increases load while doing nothing to improve what you see.

your monitor probably doesnt work with 16:10 ration resolutions try another 16:10 ratio
resolution i.e. 1440*900 and tell us

No if there is one pixel more than 1280 or 1024 this message is displayed

Basically your monitor is garbage, you are saying the maximumm res your monitor can support is 1280x1024? You need an urgent replacement loool.

I dont know if metro can run at that res, but all you have to do is go into the game/profile config file and change it to that res.

Your optimal resolution is 1280X1024? That's too low, and it will result in a bottleneck for your GTX680..meaning your GPU won't be working at it's full potential.
Upgrade to a 1080p monitor.
