NVidia only games

by SgtFigs / January 21, 2010 2:30 PM PST

Hey, i have an ATI Radeon X1550 (i dont care that it probably sucks )
Anyway, i was trying to play a game (demo), but it wouldnt open, its a pretty low spec game, so i went back to the site which said that it only ran on NVidia card...
so i wanted to know if there is an emulator or something that can effectively turn my ATI Raden into an NVidia.

Sometimes I find it is some setting or other. There is no generic solution I've found yet.

the program file or the game itself?

Try a fresh new copy if they'll give you one.

It should load just look bad.

Howd'y Bob. Had your coffee yet? Happy
