Hello, a word of advice please.
I started to play “The Witcher 2” game (it’s a fantastic game), but I noticed a strange effect in the screen (not entire screen), seems to be an effect, but it scares me a bit.. I uploaded a video just to saw u what I mean.
I don’t see this kind of effect in other games and my graphic card is gtx480.
If its not a problem (and I wish not to be), which filter is doing that effect? I may wish to disable it.

Is this a scam?

some games can run your video card hotter than others. you might not have adequate cooling and are sending the video card into meltdown. i just saw this thread title on a google search: "The Witcher 2 Set My Video Card On Fire! (tech discussion ..."
that might be one of the first things to check, before toying with graphics tweaks.
