I just installed TW2 and applied the 1.1 patch. What settings would you recommend for my system? (see specs)

Most on medium, some on low. My 6870/965 plays on High, minus AA, SSAO, Ubersampling, and Vsync (disable these regardless of settings). Make sure you have the latest Catalyst hotfix.

Thanks for the tips. I installed the 11.5b hotfix. From what I understand most games still don't utilize more than two processor cores, so I can put off upgrading the E8500 for at least the near future. Depending on how well the 4890 performs in TW2 and DA2, and perhaps TES5:Skyrim I may consider upgrading to a 6950 and flashing it to 6970. Most cards have been successful but I know it's taking a chance. I'd definitely go with the 2GB version.

Games need a quad now - its what the Witcher 2 recommends - and most recent others can make some use of it. I don't think you'll find any models that can be flashed right now, but I'd go for a 6870 to save cash @ 1080p, and a 6970 if you can afford it.

2GB of VRAM is nice, but keep in mind it really will not benefit you much if you only use a single monitor @ 19290x1200 or lower resolution.
At least not current, or in the very near future.

Multiple Monitors @ much higher resolutions it can be of benefit though.


There are quite a few games that will use a Quad these days. Mostly RTS games, but there are a few others like Witcher 2 that will take advantage of it.


Not excatly sure how much performance improvement the Quad actually gives over a dual core, but ..

I have a GTX 570SC with Q9650 @ 3.6
If I set the game to Ultra Settings w/Vsync ON, and disable Ubersampling, it has no issues.

New patch has helped some to however.
Overall it does hold 60FPS, but on occasions in a busy area Ive seen it drop briefly to around 50. Still good IMHO.

Well on my system I an running a resolution of I think 1280x960 on a 21 inch flat screen that is native 1600x1050
It still looks great and runs pretty perfect. not getting many CTD's anymore.
Been messing around so much that I am starting act2 at level 26.

Just installed 275.33's and will have to wait to test it out.

1280 x 960? Wouldn't that bring out jaggies? And why that res?

I would have to look again, but Patch 1.2 is out, have not tested anything yet and will look again at the res I decide to use again to make sure that is correct.

No, I did not notice any jaggies, it appears to scale really well.

I know my 965 + 6870 has the grunt to run the game @ 1080p with the High preset, including SSAO, only disable AA, Ubersampling and Vsync. Strange bits in Patch 1.2:

"Islamic–themed and similar textures have been deleted and/or replaced." - ???

"The Witcher 1 saves are now imported correctly." - Now you tell me? So was it imported correctly in the first place?

"A number of fixes have been made in blocking functionality during combat. Also, player character responsiveness in combat has been improved, and Geralt can attack more than one target during normal combat." - Took you a while . . . .
