    So a Friend of mine Purchased Guild Wars 2 for me
    I'm only concerned about 1 thing, My Graphics Card.

    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series

    I did a run though on System Requirements Lab And this popped up

    So its making be a bit unsure if it was still a good idea
    For my friend to buy it for me if i cant run it or not.
    Any Ideas?

    Hey there guys!

    What about my rig:

    Processor: Intel Core i5 M460 2.53 GHz
    Memory: 4 GB DDR3
    Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium
    Graphics:ATI Mobility Radeon 5650 HD
    Hard drive: 450 GB

    If I were to play it at 1600x900 what settings would be ok to play it smoothly? I know the GPU is the problem.

    Thanks

    Daammmm, really? I got an Intel Core i5 2400 @ 3.1 ghz, Radeon HD6870 currently 4GB ram, running Win 7 64 bit. I was hoping for semi decent performance but now I don't know if I should buy it.

    I've got this:

    Pentium Core 2 Duo 2.6 GHz
    GeForce 8600 GTS
    2GB RAM

    Will it handle the game on like medium details? Heard it looks like crap on low.

    Hey guys.
    Could use some help regarding wether or not my computer is able to run GW2. I tried this site http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/intro.aspx, and it told me that my computer would be able to run it just fine. I'm not so sure tho, as its a gaming laptop, which is a few years old.

    OS: Win 7 Home Premium x64
    Ram: 4GB
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P7450 @ 2.13GHz
    Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M

    I don't really know that much about computers, so would be awesome if someone could help me out!

    This can't be right. Your computer is better than mine and I'm using a Radeon HD 6450, which is vastly inferior to your graphics card. I manage to play with around 20 fps and a mix of low/medium settings on 1920x1080.

    Just wanted to add my specs for reference if it helps someone.

    Intel i5 760 2,8Ghz @ 3,8 Ghz
    8 GB DDR3 1600Mhz
    AMD Radeon 6870

    Running on all settings maxed but shader on medium and shadows on medium at 60 fps.

    If you have a lower end video card, don't try to play at 1920*1080.
    1280*720 is enough and if you can plug your PC to your HDTV, it will smooth things a bit.

    New drivers for NVIDIA cards, 306.02. Try them out if you have performance issues.

    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    GW2 - Benchmarks and PC build recommendations

    Note - the case and hard drive are completely up to your preferences, I have merely recommended some decent examples. Even the motherboard can be changed if you dislike ASRock and prefer Gigabyte/Asus/whatever - just make sure to ask, in case you pick one that isn't compatible with the CPU or a terrible performer or something (I'll be able to tell you right away).

    Recommended GW2 build ($1000):
    Aimed at running GW2 on "Best Appearance" and holding 60 fps average @ 1080p. GPU can be switched to a GTX660 Ti, HD7970 or GTX670 for even higher framerates or if you play other demanding titles. Includes a a 128GB SSD to install GW2 (and OS + Programs + other games obviously) for super-fast load times and greatly increased overall system performance.

    MoBo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4$134.99
    CPU: Intel i5 3570K$229.99
    Heatsink: Xigmatek Gaia - $29.99
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance LP 2x4GB$44.99
    GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD7870 Ghz$259.99
    SSD: Crucial M4 128GB - $109.99
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB $69.99
    PSU: XFX ProSeries 450W$52.99
    Case: Corsair 300R$79.99
    Total: ~$1013 (before rebates)


    Budget GW2 build ($500):
    Aimed at running GW2 using a combination of "Best Performance" and "Balanced" settings to hold above 60fps average @ 1080p. GPU can be upgraded to HD6870, HD7850 or HD7870 for higher framerates (but the CPU will start becoming a bottleneck).

    MoBo: ASRock H77M$69.99
    CPU: Intel i3 2120$124.99
    RAM: G.Skill 1600MHz 2x4GB$35.99
    GPU: MSI HD7770 Ghz$124.99
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB $69.99
    PSU: Antec VP-450W$34.99
    Case: Antec Gaming Series One$49.99
    Total: ~$511 (before rebates)


    Benchmarks

    I dislike Toms but it's the only decent benchmark out at the moment, albeit still using Beta for the tests - but I don't think the above builds will hugely change after ANet is done with optimizations. This should settle most people's build questions regarding GW2 since previous so little data was available on how it performs due to the constant optimizations/tweaks ArenaNet have been making.

    Source: TomsHardware Guild Wars 2 Beta CPU & GPU Benchmarks

    GPU:



    This game really puts the GPU through it's paces on Best Appearance, you will need an HD7870 or GTX660 Ti to hold 60 fps on average @1080p assuming you have a solid gaming CPU. It makes my GTX580 run hot as hell.

    On Best Performance or Balanced settings you can easily get away with a GTX460 or HD7750/HD7770, the game runs extremely smoothly at low settings with most of the eye candy turned off.


    CPU:





    As shown above, an Intel CPU is your best bet and it's WELL worth investing in a solid quad-core from Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge platforms for GW2.

    P.S - I know many people are getting sub-par framerates or framerate spikes in GW2 despite the above charts saying otherwise. This isn't your hardware's fault, it's far more related to the game itself and graphics drivers. Be patient and give ArenaNet more time to fix their game for the thousands of variations of PC's that peeople are trying to run the game on, the issues could be caused by any specific combination of hardware/software so it's difficult to get to the bottom of.

    In the mean time keep experimenting with various graphics drivers (old, new and beta! Try everything!) and various ingame graphics settings (vSync, fullscreen/windowed, etc). Latest beta drivers are 306.02 (nVidia) and Catalyst 12.8 (AMD).

    Depending on your sample size and AA setting, around medium.
