    Hello , I'm gonna buy a new pc but I'm not really experienced with it.
    I'm probably gonna buy one of these.

    HP Pavilion P6-2102ED
    Core i3-2120 3.3 GHZ
    6GB DDR3 RAM
    1.5TB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 7450.

    Or

    HP Pavilion P6-2103ED
    Core i5-2320 3 GHz
    6GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 7570

    Am I able to play guild wars 2 on both of these pc's? (High-Med-Low)(Fp's)

    There's a 150 euro difference so let me know what u think.

    I recently got a HD7970 to replace my GTX670 for GW2 and difference has been quite good. I play at 2560x1600 with all options turned up and get like 70-100 frames running around. Even large WvWvW has been pretty good. Other parts are fairly old: 4GHz i7 930, 20GB RAM and using a EVGA x58 board.

    Wait how does sPvP put the same amount of strain on framerates as a city? I thought the most you could have was 8v8?

    My FPS during sPvP was probably averaging around 80-100, 60-70 if the shit really hit the fan with most of both teams in the same area throwing spells. The maps are generally far more confined and smaller, you should be getting more around the same fps as quest zones (or higher). In WvW I come down to around 35-40 fps.

    i know this machine is kinda old but ive been playing gw2 with it since launch, only got 40-50 world if many people drops down to 20-30, 9-12 wvw gate seige, on auto detect, havent tried pvp yet.

    Q8200
    2.33ghz
    2x2gb 1333

    I'd like you guys to tell me how will GW 2 work on my laptop. I don't await any great performance, would just want decent enough fps in PvE and cities, while being able to get few of these nice graphic features, with things like land and character textures and view distance maxed. PvP performance is not a priority. If you'll be so kind to give me an expected amount of FPS, do tell me is this amount good or bad, please - I'm a noob in these matters.

    P.S. In case I forgot to add some important info, please do tell, I'll add it later.

    Interl(R) Core(TM) i5-3210MCPU 2.50GHz, 2494 MHz
    4GB RAM ( I think )
    GeForce GT 650M ( or some Intel(R) Graphics 4000 whatever, EVEREST Home Edition shows me both of these )
    ... and some other stuff that I don't know about.

    I'm not yet allowed to post links, so here's the name of the laptop's model - Dell Inspiron 17R 7720.

    It's a midrange gaming laptop, not the best but definitely a solid choice for gaming as far as laptops go. It should do fine in most PvE situations but I won't guarantee max settings, you'll have to make some tweaks on renderer sampling, shadows/reflections, etc and drop some stuff to medium.

    Everest shows you two GPU's because gaming laptops have their discrete GPU's layered on top of their integrated GPU's. E.g. my laptop has a GT555M layered on an HD3000.

    At first I was like "bwuh? I don't need HD3000, I've got a GT555M!" and uninstalled the Intel 3000 driver while keeping the GT555M driver. Lets just say the laptop went ape shit at me yelling "NO GRAPHICS DRIVER DETECTED, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE" :P

    If I was to take a guess I would say you should be able to run at Best Appearance preset while holding 60-70+ fps in quest zones, a bit lower than that in cities, 30-40fps in WvW.
    BUT the problem is that I've never seen an FX6100 in action with GW2. I have no clue whether it'll be totally fine or mess something up with GW2 (it's not likely).

    I'm wondering if I will be able to play GW2 at a constant decent FPS with low settings and the only thing I car about is view distance so a "high" view distance.
    My specs :

    Graphics cared : Radeon 7700

    Processor : AMD Athlon 4450e Duel-Core processor

    RAM : 3gs , 32 bit computer

    For anyone using an AMD graphics card and experiencing lower-than-expected framerates, I just found this thread:
    https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/foru...dvanced-Method

    I'll try it myself when I get home, but it seems people have seen remarkable improvements using these settings. Talking 50-100% improvement. Expect to hear more tonight or tomorrow.

    Update: Did absolutely nothing on my end. But through it, I managed to disable Powerplay at least. Such a horrible system, AMD...

    Mix of both with shaders, shadows and reflections turned down.

    I see these Stickies quite often however, I never see anyone promote http://www.systemrequirementslab.com . If people checked this page there might not be a need for these stickies. This page should also give you a better idea of what to expect than someone else's opinion of your setup.
    Grammar- It's the difference between knowing your shit & knowing you're shit.

    I checked this site, though according to it I can't even run WoW, D3, or SW:TOR (though this one had trouble in high population areas and long loading times). Since I've played games it says I fail, guess I'll have to take the info with a grain of salt. Any idea on how this system would play out? Not looking for stellar performance, just smooth gameplay if I have to tone things down (things like shadows/weather effects/ground clutter density don't really take away from the game for me).

    The cooling system, form factor and overall design of laptops is aimed at supporting their particular GPU and only that - you cannot open up the laptop and just swap out the graphics chip. The die is permanently attached to the PCB, the "motherboard" of the laptop isn't designed for any other GPU other than the one it came with. You don't just find GPU chips floating around in the market on their own, why do you think no such thing as a "laptop graphics card" is sold anywhere?

    You can add/change the RAM and HDD. That is the limit of what you can change in laptops.

    The only exception to this is when the manufacturer offers a service to upgrade the graphics in select models (rare cases) - usually they just offer different laptops with different GPU's and say "do you want X laptop with X card, or Y laptop with Y card?"

    The other *real* exception are "external" graphics cards with utilize USB ports (extremely slow for graphics purposes) and external PCIe cards to slot a desktop graphics card into. It's quite a lot of work and not very many laptops even support such a thing because the GPU has to work together with the CPU (almost as one) for a consistent experience. Read about it here: http://www.techradar.com/news/comput...adaptor-915616

    Remember with laptops there isn't even an actual "card", it's a fixed chip with a fixed cooling system integrated into the laptop.
    With a 5 second google search you'd see that the Quadro FX 770M is a removable module, 15.4" form factor graphics card. Granted the chances of finding something to supplant it is going to be difficult, it's not outside of the realm of possibilities, but again...there's always eBay. The cooling solutions are not going to vary much as they're limited by space more than anything, you can augment that with a cooling stand or other aftermarket cooling solutions. It also supports Shader 4.0, OpenGL 2.1 and DX10, it's based on the G96 chip not unlike a 9600. It should have no problem running GW2. Can even run it with standard Geforce drivers and it shouldn't have an issue. Having said that, performance will not be mind-blowing. But it'll be better than nothing.

    Bottomline, is it worth changing, probably not. but laptop video cards are not as integrated as you might think, there are many that can be swapped out for replacement, upgrade or repair.

    Not many, no. The VAST majority of graphics chips are NOT seperate cards, they are just the chip, soldered to the motherboard. Are there laptops with seperate cards? Yes. But they're very rare. Usually high-end workstations or gaming laptops. For example, my Alienware M18x can be upgraded. It has dual Nvidia 580M cards right now and, if I had the money, I could swap in a pair of Radeon 7970s or Nvidia 680Ms.

    Performance problems.

    My specs:

    ATI radeon 6870
    AMD phenom 2 x4 @ 965
    8gb RAM

    I'm usually getting 45 fps on medium settings 1920x1080 and i'm pretty sure that's not right while my brother with a crappy 9800 GT videocard and a wooden CPU is getting the same performance?

    Is anyone else having problems with my setup?
