Better graphic card, faster HDD, or RAM?

I have Civ V on an ssd. Never noticed any textures missing/loading.

State your specs and what settings you're trying to run the games at.

If you have enough RAM, SSD.

Civ 5 needs recent drivers. If you're using disk drivers for you GPU (as opposed to recent online ones), you may get the black texture glitch.

Nobody else gets a bunch of empty gray textures when loading up a game of Civ V for the first time?

I only find it to be a problem if you load in a game where you've already cleared out a good chunk of the fog of war.

I haven't played it much but I've never had any texture problems, whether new game or loading up a fully explored map. I've got Civ V Gold, 3570k (stock clocks), 8 gigs of ram, a 670, and it's installed to my 7200 rpm Barracuda. I assume it patched automatically to the latest version and I haven't modded it.

Hmm that's odd. I usually play with a huge map size, so the gray textures/loading are always a problem for me.

I have 3GB of VRAM and Civ V is installed to my SSD too.

I have everything maxed aside from that one setting that lets you zoom in further, do you have that enabled? I can turn it on and see what it does

Has AMD ever included multithreaded rendering support for the game?
