Dice - You roll and basically click on the dice you want to keep. Its like poker/5 card stud. Keep a pair or 3 of a kind - straight etc.

Arm Wrestling you basically just nudge your mouse and follow the double arrowed cursor back and forth. Its very sensitive.

Can anyone play this game well using the straight ultra preset @ 1920x with a single 580?

It does make it feel like a 360 game, except for the awesome graphics, even the open/dialogs and such show a blue X (as on the controller) instead of a mouse button. I find it more enjoyable for some reason.
The more and more I play the more I like the controller better. Even little things like looting are just better. And things like Arm Wrestling, while retarded with the mouse, is perfect for an analog stick.

No.

The Ultra preset has Ubersampling turned on. A single 580 won't run it very well at all. Turn that off and you will be fine, although it looks much better with it on.

A couple of guys on the steam forums said the Witcher devs said ubersampling isn't working exactly as intended so it's causing a larger performance hit than it should. I'm not sure where they got that info. I haven't been able to locate quotes like that from the devs.
