This thread makes me sad. People shouldn't waste their time arguing about gender equality in art in a damn video game forum. If you really feel so strongly about it, go out and have a protest. If you don't, fine, let others enjoy the game. Peace.

@WasabiCurry: Thanks for the awesome advice. The only thing I don't quite get is the fan speed. MSI Afterburner also has an AUTO setting for the fan and I'm wondering if that's enough or should I crank it up just a little bit just to be sure?
Also, a big thank you to everyone else who gave advice!
Hey guys, as you can imagine, I am one of those guys who really wants to "get" how overclocking works, but completely fails at it.
To make a long story short, I bought a Geforce 640 and right now I'm trying to overclock it, but I am scared shitless by voltage clocks and memory clocks and so on.
I'm using MSI Afterburner, but actually, I have no idea what I'm doing. Any help? Pointers? I also know about FurMark.
One of my newest xbox 360 controllers has all but disappeared off the face of the earth. Is it possible to somehow locate controllers that are synced to my xbox?
That's what gets me too, people with worse specs are experiencing better performance with games. I am FAIRLY sure my PC is using the Geforce card as intended.
As I mentioned before, the game even recommends higher settings which make it even worse.
EDIT: Okay, I tried running Witcher 2 on the lowest possible settings and it STILL lags up a storm on random occasions. Sure, it was a little more stable, but still fairly horrible. I'm at my wit's end.
EDIT 2: Also tried uninstalling NVIDIA's 3D vision drivers. Didn't change a thing.
Honestly, these are the settings that Witcher 2 is still giving me trouble at. The FPS also seems to jump between either 15 or a solid 50 at random. I know Witcher 2 is not the most optimized game ever, but even at settings where the game looks worse than, I dunno, Company Of Heroes, it's still giving me a slide show. I've also tried turning the texture memory size to the lowest setting with no clear difference in the performance.
Funny thing is, when I let the game auto-detect the best settings, it recommends high-end stuff, which makes it run like garbage.
Hi, I am fairly ignorant about hardware stuff and that's putting it lightly.
So long story short, my old video card (Geforce 9800 GTX) died a horrible death and I replaced it with a (supposedly) much faster Geforce GT 640 2GB.
Though I am noticing that the new card isn't much faster at all, even though most people seem to be having a blast with it, running games like Assassin's Creed III and Witcher 2 at 60FPS and so on.
I don't really know anything about overclocking either.
Here are my specs:
Intel (R) Core 2 Quad CPU Q9300 2.50 GHz
Windows 7 64-bit
Geforce GT 640 2GB
Any tips are welcome.
EDIT: I also have MSI Afterburner installed if that helps.
