Question about Video settings
Hey all, I was just looking to get some general troubleshooting here. 

I recently installed the latest PCSX2 1.5.0 build from the Orphis list of automated builds, and
everything was working fine until I went to configure my video settings, and I noticed that the option
to select my graphics card under the adapter tab was grayed out, like here:

I was just wondering if there was any way to get it to show up because I'm not sure if it will have any
effect on my games performance.

I am using a fairly new ROG Gaming Laptop if that helps
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050
Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
16 GB Installed RAM
Windows 10

Thanks  Biggrin

For OpenGL,pcsx2 is automatically using nvidia without asking which is also recommended for a pc\laptop with nvidia card
If you switch to DX the menu will become active

If you are in doubt if pcsx2 is using your nvidia gpu,when you run any game,you will see the gpu used in the log

Yep. This change was added somewhere along the 1.5 builds. All along OpenGL has never allowed you to explicitly set a device. It's just a part of the framework, it always asks the OS what device to use (hence the importance of Nvidia control panel profiles and the "Run with Graphics Processor" right click option in Windows).
OGL also available on ATi "but" usage is very high than i checked on the task manager's GPU usage meter.

oh BTW we also have the ROG laptop because it has a cooling pipeline on it we picked i5 instead of i7 to avoid hyperthreading and unexpected heat issues

the GTX is the same as yours,16gb ram same as yours,but we added M.2 ssd for windows booting speed,windows updates,RPCS3 and Nox emulator...i didnt post it on my siggy...desktop still my priority.

if you already bought the i7 thing it will alright...since as i said ROG has a unique cooling pipeline.
