@ Mithander - dude you can and will run the game just fine! If I can run it with my GTS250 512mbs on resolution 1680x1050 (which is the highest for my monitor) I bet you can run it with your 5850 on high settings! don't worry even if you won't be able to get enjoyable FPS on high, then on medium graphics look almost the same so you won't miss out anytthing! Anyways with my rig I could run the game on high but couldn't get enjoyable FPS... You can buy it with no problem! take care!

@pipboy1981 Yea no problem at all.  If you have any questions about your Rig setup when you decide to buy feel free to send me a message or something and I can help you out.  

@Mithander Cryisis is an older game and back in 2007...yes it was a great graphically intense game and it was above its time, but not anymore.  The Witcher 2 uses a different Engine that is quite powerfull and thats why it takes a really good card to run it. Also a lot bigger than Crysis. I only get about 45FPS on High settings on my HD 6850 (which is still great).  And if you dont want to Pirate the game then you should just pirate it to see if you can run it, and if you can then go out and buy it.  But you prob can run it on low/medium settings and have it playable because those settings are just for the recommended specs to have good FPS on High settings.

So why is the mobile 5850 red crossed for this game? The card seems to hold up against everything I've thrown at it (including maxed Crysis...) and have it be playable... I also have 4gb Ram and a 2.4i5. So what gives...? I really wanna play this game, but as there's no demo and I don't want to actually pirate this game, but on the other hand i don't want to shell out $60 for a game that can't play... Any ideas?

@todasengel12  Thank you for the reply.  I had a feeling that the ram was a problem, so Ill just wait till I get a new system entirely.  I was planning on buying a gaming computer sometime in the future anyway.  Dont want to wait to play the game, but if I have to then its fine. Again, thank you for your advice!

@pipboy1981  The 3GB of ram is going to kill you...it takes a little less than 2 GB of RAM just to install the game....thats not counting the RAM thats already being used to run the system...so I dont even know if you can get past the install...and if you do your going to struggle with the game.  Upgrade your ram my friend

So, I have an E8400 Core 2 duo 3ghz cpu, a Radeon 5770 1gb graphics card, but only 3 gigs of ram with windows 7. Im thinking I can run this on medium settings, but would appreciate advice!

@matthewpleasehe I personally wouldn't risk it. The cards you are quoting are taken from the minimum requirements.

My card does not play the game smoothly all the time and it has 768MB.

But if you are willing to play at the lowest setting on a low resolution then you may be able to get the game running.

Installed and started playing.

The game detected that my system should be able to play the game at Ultra even though my monitor is 1900x1200. The game ran poorly like this with a lot of stuttering. I had to adjust to high settings and 1600x1200 to get the game to run fairly smoothly, with a little slow down here and there.

First impressions are that the game is well put together although I found that some of the voice acting seems a little poor. Still, I am only a very short way into the game. We will have a full review for you as soon as possible.

Just played for 2 hours Witcher 2 and I like it so far, very much...the fight systemis not thebest but it is ok. With my specs it can run at 1680X1050 on medium settings just great...on high settings graphics and everything is better, but it is slower then on medium. There is also ULTRA settings, wouldn't dare ty those with my GTS250 512mb though ;)
