hi, i've recently installed Witcher 2 and there's one moment in the story (where the dragon flies overand sets the surrounding scene on fire) which causes the fps to plummet below 15.
i checked the EVGA precision tool and it says that the gpu is at 100% usage which i found to be wierd as i'm running a gtx460 and the recommended is a gtx260. CPU usage was floating at around 80% (for the highest core) and around 60% (for the second highest core).
so my guess is, is it my PSU problem? i know that it is a very poor PSU but i never had any problems with previous games. (it's a Storm 600W with 24A on the 12V rail).
Also, could someone point out a good PSU that i could use for this? (with room for overclocking)
i've got a phenom II X6 (OC'd to 3ghz, being cautious not to overwork my PSU)
4gb RAM DDR2
GA M720 US3 mobo
windows 7 32 bit.
also, should i revert my phenom II X6 back to the athlon X2 7850, or do they both have the same power consumption?
No need to switch the cpu keep the best one in system.
Your problem is game related.
Witcher 2 requires alot of gpu horsepower.
Try using less aggressive settings.
I do agree a better psu would be a good investment though.
24A on a 600W is anemic, good modern 400W units have more.
