    As Diamond said if you can run DX11 you should have no trouble running Guild Wars 2.

    Yes idd you sure will. and thats why i said we should rename this thread "the E-peen thread" becouse most people in here knows that their computers will run it, if they have read any information about the game.

    If you knew this would be an e-Peen thread, then why are you here? Are you here to compare? Is it now a pissing contest?

    And I asked only to know if I can max it.

    Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Processor ~2.80GHz
    Memory: 4096MB RAM
    DirectX Version: DirectX11
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460

    Resolution: 1366 x 768 (Thinking about buying a new screen, this one is weird-shaped. I got it cheap from a friend.)
    You'll manage ultra on that screen.
    If you go up to 1080, you might just make ultra, but might drop to very high.

    Oh. Well, thank you, I suppose. I just really know nothing about computers. For example, I have no idea what DX11 is. And you people have no idea how long it took me to find my system information! Not trying to grow an e-peen or... e-boobies. >_>

    E: And thanks Mif! :>

    Does it runner smoother than the most recent MMO that was released? The graphics in GW2 look much better so I was really worried.

    My specs are better than OP's, but I did not see anywhere if they said they can run it or not.

    It should be well optimized and will run well. Look at TERA's graphics, they're very good aswell and you'd think it'd take a beast to run but it doesn't.

You will get "the worst case scenerio" with your settings and fps in those games you would get in GW 2. Unless ANet complietly screw optimalization, which I doubt they will.
    Your wrong, the games you listed do not use umbra, and umbra is used in guildwars 2 it is a huge difference in optimization and will run better then thoes games, dont judge your benchmarking based on the graphics.

    To anyone using the thread for bragging rights, the purpose of the thread is to help people who may not know if they can run guildwars2.
    Any computer bought new in the last 3 years will run it fine in ultra, anything up to 5 years on high, anything in 7 years on medium-high shadows off.

    I hope so. My last experience with a new MMO has given me much lowered expectations for games in general. Hopefully they are not releasing until the known bugs are at least fixed.

    Are they using an unproven/unfinished engine or does GW2 use a solid engine that has proven to be reliable?

    Solid engine, i.e. the one they used for GW1 but enhanced and improved, and they're using Umbra onto that - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fU2L7IdYDVc : About "Umbra" if you don't know what it is. :P

    They're using modified version of GW1's engine in which they're really familiar with.

    Guild Wars 2 uses a heavily modified Guild Wars game engine which includes support for true 3D environments, more detailed environments and models, better lighting and shadows, new animation and effects systems, plus new audio and cinematics engines and a more flexible combat and skill-casting system. It uses Havok to provide destructible environment and ragdoll animation of creatures and Umbra's occlusion culling technology.

    It's an upgraded GW1 engine.

    To put things in perspective, one of the founders of ArenaNet and current CEO is Mike O'Brien. When he worked for Blizzard he developed Battle.net, wrote the 3D engine for Warcraft 3, invented the MPQ archives that Blizzard still use, and had a hand in coding Diablo 1 and 2, as well as Starcraft. So when the boss has a resume like that, you can be sure the company has a very strong code base, and isn't really the kind of place you'd last very long if you write buggy bad code.

    Awesome! That is very reassuring. Nice to know that they are just improving upon something they are very familiar with instead of experimenting with something new and unreliable.

    Still trying to not get my hopes up.

    if your comp can run GW1 at high to between medium and high

    it will run GW2 atleast on low settings

    I think that's going to be a stretch considering the requires for GW1. They said you might be able to run low if you can run GW1 maxed out, since they're trying to cater to as many as possible.

    I'm starting to wonder if this thread implies that a lot of people don't understand the basis of their goal to "aim at mid-range PC's" or that people just want to show off.

    That almost sounds sarcastic.
