Dude your cards are beasts no lie, any liquid cooled card is really just beastly. And yeah, even I was super loaded I wouldn't wanna dump that much that often into computer stuff, ehh... Who am I kidding I probably would xD

Does witcher 2 do FOV through surround? If so I wonder how well 3gb x 4 gtx 580s could pull off standard definition surround (not even that 1600p stuff)! All maxed out ofcourse.


And while we are on the topic, do you play with Uber On? I would hope so!

I know if I was loaded I'd end up spending WAY too much money... haha.

Not sure on the surround thing...

And, yeah, I do use UberSampling... It looks fantastic. I gotta play this game again with the other story choices after I finish some other shorter games I got queued up.

completely offtopic of the witcher 2 btw.
I almost have the same setup. Mine is a Venomous X with a 150CFM Delta fan. My 1090T at 4GHz and 3GHz NB only reaches 51*C on full load. This game really brings my GPU's to their knees, though...I've already decided that I want to upgrade my GPU setup to 2 Sapphire Toxic 6950's, except I can't find anywhere that has them in stock...

As for this game, the first battle with Letho is a huge PITA...I got frustrated and loaded another save file from earlier in the game and just started fighting monsters and going on random quests to build up experience and get further up the magic tree. I also forgot to craft that armor from the Kayran my first time through, so I went back and did that. Love that armor -- it's beastly (no pun intended). Haven't gone back to fight him yet because I really have no confidence in my character yet . How far up the character development trees were you guys before you fought Letho (the first time...I know you fight him a second time because someone spoiled it for me, so don't mention anything about the 2nd time you fight him )?
post #1744 of 2183
I actually don't remeber how far I was up.. I could load my old save file. But all I remember is I didn't know about vitality (yeah I was that much a derp first play through and had a ton of save up experience, minute I went to the second town I had 5 bars, which is more than necessary) and as a result it was hard as hell fighting him with default 2. You basically have use 3 things besides swords play, Aard, Quen, and stun bombs. Then you have to fight the crap out of him. You've got to hit him before he uses quen himself. Keep alternating between Aard attack + dodge and vitality recover. Also use yrden though I didn't have that much luck with it.


Dang I am dying to tell you my ending . CAN I PLEASE? you're going to hate me.. But I wanna tell.

Here I'll use spoiler:
you don't have to fight him, still a pretty epic ending!!!

Thanks for the tips.

On another note, I've recently been hit with a rash of CTD's while playing this game. Didn't really give it much thought at first, but it finally started to frustrate me and I started looking for a solution. I go to verify the integrity of the game cache and Steam tells me that 54 files failed to validate and will be re-downloaded . It's been downloading at 1.8mb/s for the past couple of minutes and it's only at 6% . WTH!!!!

Is TW2's story tied into TW1 ?

I know you can use your TW1 character into TW2, that doesn't infer a shared plot though.

Wondering if I should give TW1 Enhanced Edition a download and play before diving into TW2.

Spoiler - Kind of..

I got to the first big town after the sewer part in TW1 a few months ago then started playing other things on my old rig.

Want something to tide me over till Gears of War 3, just finished Dead Island, won't touch NG+ till the bugs are fixed, and I'm no longer on my old Athlon II X4 630 rig so I can max TW1 at a nonstop 60 FPS, Hard Reset comes out tomorrow too....

AAAAAAAAAH SOOOO MANY GAMESSS !!!

Thread Starter 
Haven't touched this game in quite some time due to other things.... I should definitely start it up again.

Would this game be better with an xbox 360 controller or keyboard and mouse?

Edit: Oh my god this game is 21 gb! My mind is officially blown.
