would a PNY - GeForce GT 440 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express Graphics Card be a suitable card for The Witcher 2? (Its replacing my current Radeon HD 5450 1g)

I havent bought anything yet, can anyone recommend a card that will be able to run it at medium to high settings? I really dont want to spend more then 200, and I would like to keep it around 150.


Went out and got a PNY GeForce GTX 460 it was right within my budget at $179. Works awsome! can run the game at 1080p and on all high settings and it runs and looks great!

You card seems to be all right for the game, however it probably won't be able to handle the ultra graphical settings (I have a GTX 460 and I can't handle the ultra setting too).

You will get about 10-25 FPS on varying resolutions from 1280x1024 to 1680x1050

This depends on your minimum quality demands, but anything higher than the lowest settings, your new card will have a hard time keeping up.

Since you have edited your question:

I would suggest at least a Radeon 4850 or its Nvidia equivalent GTX 260 for medium settings, both of which you can find used at a good price.

If you have more to invest, then go for the Radeon 6850 or the GTX 560 (Ti).

I'm playing it on a GT250 and most settings are set to high or ultra and it's very smooth. I don't use aliasing though. The framerate killer is the 'UberSampling' setting, you turn that off and you should be fine with just about any card above 100$. Right now it looks like the GT460 can be bought for 130$-150$ and it should have ample power for this game.
