With The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt delayed to May 19, CD Projekt knows PC gamers will need some time to upgrade their rigs to prepare for the game. That’s why the developer released The WItcher 3’s PC system requirements.

      here's hoping my poor 2500k can do it justice. (does the game utilize hyperthreading or something?)

      When I built my rig last year everyone told me to get the i5-4670 instead of the i7. Now I'm sad.

        I doubt it will really matter that much.

          I just started playing Witcher 2 and it runs like a dream, so at least there's that.
