Yeah, man, I'm completely baffled at how they let the PC version ship like this. It's really starting to piss me off at how some publishers are treating their customers like they couldn't give two fucks about what they deliver on release day.
@grtkbrandon: @dave_tacitus: I'm gonna piggy-back off this thread since I have a similar build. Only main difference is I have an i5-3570k @ 3.4GHz. Would my i5 change your guy's recommendations in any way?
I bought The Witcher 1 on steam in 2011 when it was on sale for $2.50, and was surprised at how much I like it. The following year, I built a new PC just for The Witcher 2 which became my favourite game of 2012. Witcher 3 looks like more Witcher 2, but with an open world, which is A-OK with this guy!
