I'm thinking of buying metro 2033 and the witcher 2 but I do not know what settings I can run them on. I heard that I could do metro 2033 at ultra and the witcher 2 at high. Could I do witcher 2 at ultra just with ubersampling off? If I can't do everything at ultra with 30+ fps then could I just do textures at ultra and everything else at high? I consider 30 fps the minimum and if I cant play with that fps or higher then I don't consider it playable (I mean its still playable, just not as enjoyable. Whats the ponit of playing on ultra if you just have a 15 fps slideshow?)

Best solution

Hi :) 

Your specs would help lol...

But to play Metro 2033 at Ultra you would need a huge gaming machine...

All the best Brett :)

Metro will depend on exactly what resolution and amount of AA etc, 7970M is an under clocked 7870 so look for benchmark results for 7850 & 7870 and it will be somewhere in between. I don't know if the slow CPU clock will hold eith game back or not.

Notebook review said I could. Heard its crap though XD. Yeah not everything turned on but what are some things I can turn off in games. I know you shouldn't overclock in games but if I clock the core speed up to 950 MHZ from 850 MHZ and the memory up to 1450 MHZ from 1200 MHZ I can play on ultra 27 fps which isnt that bad. If i just turn some things down lower. Also if you get an alienware m18x with sli 680ms you might be able to.

Hi :) 

You realise overclocking a laptop is ALWAYS risky because of trying to get rid of the excess heat...

I would have a VERY close look at your warranty BEFORE you tried it...

All the best Brett :)

I got a IC diamond cpu + gpu cooler so will that do it well enough? Also I'll just experiment with the settings when I get it because i'm buying the game regardless.

No you can't play Metro 2033 on "Very High" or Witcher 2 on "Ultra" with playable FPS (30) with your specs.

What is the resolution of that laptop? It may be close if your resolution is low. In either case, you won't be able to turn "every" to max. Advanced DoF and PhysX are not going to happen on Metro, and ubersampling will not happen on The Witcher 2, and you may also turn off some of the DoF stuff too.

Don't even try to OC your video card and cpu. Laptops are already designed to run at the max speed it can handle based on temperatures.
