Okay, so I just got a new video card (Geforce gtx 550 ti), and I'm experiencing terrible lag in Metro 2033... I'm playing it on normal quality, DX11, AAA, and AF 4x. I downloaded Fraps and it said the game was running at about 5-10 fps (even the menu screen). Here is my dxdiag:

what resolution? part of the reason why it lags is that Metro 2033 was a badly coded game(even powerhouse gpus dont do the best in it) especially when anti aliasing is on.

It says 1366x768, I would expect you to be getting more like maybe 20fps, not really playable either, the game demands alot theres not many gpus out there that can play it happily. Make sure you've got the latest drivers anyways.

Off topic, but is that your youtube channel of the same name?

Get off those 301.42 drivers and update to the latest 304.79's.
August 4, 2012 2:22:56 AM

Alright, I'll update those drivers and see if it helps any.

And yes paddys09, it is! Haha. :D

Hope you see some more frames with the latest drivers, you might get something decent considering the res if you lower the settings a bit.

Nice work on the videos, keep it up. Great editing! Saw a few a while a go, just checked out the latest, great job! :) 
August 4, 2012 2:59:38 AM

Holy crap... I updated to 304.79 and now it runs at 60fps+. I LOVE YOU GUYS.
