    ASUS GeForce 9800 GTX Pictured

    Just completed The Witcher

    I am currently in chapter 4, and love it so far. One thing I do not like about it is the lack of armor upgrades. Also sword upgrades do not seem to matter much. O'well it still is fun to play, and the nudity helps to smooth out some of the wrinkles.
