Hello,

Thank you for your attention.

    Not sure anyone will know what you mean...

     

    Is "the 3D card for Photoshop" something you've seen somewhere?  Is it a digital model of a playing card or something?

    I am betting they meant video card. according to your menu, you can do 3d. Repousse is greyed out because you don't have any text selected. Try the 3d postcard from layer or the new shape from layer. These will create a 3d object. The former will turn your image into a flat card in 3d space, and the latter will create 3d objects.

    Perhaps it is your preferences, set incorrectly.

    Look at Performance and make sure Enable OpenGL Drawing is marked. While here, click on the advanced Settings button and see which mode is selected. Changing this mode may help...

     

    Now look at Edit>Preferences>3D and make sure this area is not greyed out. Changing these settings may help.

     

    At the moment I am thinking OpenGL drawing is not checked.

    I don't know if you have one on order, but one I find works very well for me is the VisionTek ATI Radeon HD 5670 with 1 GB DDR5 memory.  Since I got mine they've released a newer 6670 model, which is slightly updated but with nearly the same specs, and which I would look seriously at if I were buying a new card right now.

    I hope thats 4 GB of RAM and not 4MB of ram. Or you really do need to upgrade.

    It's impossible to know what your bottleneck may be without more information.

     

    Have you run any benchmarks on your computer system?  A decent one, which lists performance for your various subsystems separately and allows you to compare with other computers around the world, is the Passmark package.
