No, put AA on lowest setting (or off for best perfrmance), anisotropic filtering to off and ubersampling off, everything else max at 1080p.

Your GPU is a major bottleneck. Maybe on lowest setting. Not sure about fps, maybe 15-25 at 720p. Upgrade to a 660 gtx, they got quite cheap and are still good.

Put the resolution at 800x600, make sure all anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing are turned off, turn off all shadows ect...

You can play the game full ultra settings with 60fps+ especially on that res. With ubersampling on you should get around 30-+ (i was able to get around 25++ fps with ubersampling on on a gtx650ti 1GB)

Full ultra 60FPS+, even with ubersampling on you will probably get a playable framerate, not 60fps, but playable

yes definitely recommend.Your pc will run it well over 30fps, i used to have a pc with core2duo 2.2ghz 2gb ram GT9600 1GB gpu, and i was able to play the game with around 30-+FPS on low 720p..The one you have now can definitely push more fps, i would say that on 1080p you will be able to play medium with playable fps

You've been duped by the lowballed (recommended) system requirements. I had similar performance @1080p with mostly low/medium settings on a hd7770. Had to drop to even 720p to get smooth frames, but even then the frametimes were all over the place. Sometimes they just lowball the requirements to get more people to buy the game. Ended up buying it on xbox. Looked worse but ran much more consistent.

Your res is too high, i've seen guys running the game with similar frame rates on 720p with r7 250. Your r7 250x aint way better, but allows you to get a bit more fps in games. Put a lower resolution like 1360x768p or even 720p. Put everything on low, with texture downscaling high and texture memory size at very small

Sorry mate, doubt it. Even if you could run it on all lowest settings at your resolution, you'd still get unplayable fps. Might consider upgrading.

What settings should I use?


My Nvidia Geforce Experience optimises most of my games for me, but it's giving me low/medium settings for Witcher 2. I was hoping for a second opinion here.

Note that NGE doesn't always give you the best possible settings. Put ubersampling to off, anisotropic filtering off and AA off, medium-high at 1080p(40-50 fps)
