Tbh, yeah, I find this thread rather pointless. System requirements are not out, game not optimized yet (I REALLY hope that's the case, because ->), people with 6-core CPUs, tons of RAM and great videos reporting 30 fps, etc. And yet random people advice other people how the game would run on their PCs. I mean, for real?
DON'T YOU HATE ON MAH CHARR BABBYS.That thing dying is a bad thing?
(Yes, babbys. It's the only word I've picked up from Simon and Lewis that stuck.)
If only every publisher/developer rolled out simple DIAG tools to run a check on their hardware specs.
Phenom II 1090T @ 4.2 Ghz
Msi r lightning 6970 xfire @ 1045 core
16 Gigs of vengeance 1866 Mhz
Crosshair v Formula mobo
Win7 64 bit
Im hoping for good crosfire support, and a more balanced Gpu/cpu spread of workloads so the game wont be so limited like say wow.

Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game because they almost always turn out to be—or to be indistinguishable from—self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time.

Will it run on a Acorn Archimedes? Is it Windows 3.1 compatible? Seriously if you already play games on your computer that are not 10 years old you should be fine, even if they where making it for high end computers upon start of development, those high end computers now are bottom rung if not lower then what is sold in stores now for $300, so unless your computer was barely mid grade 6 years ago which would put your computer older then Windows Vista then you don't have to worry to much.
I'm going to bump this for people who have questions about this but can't find it with the search feature. Hopefully this will stay in the first page or two to prevent additional threads on the topic (not worth a sticky and if I sticky it nobody will read it ;_
Edge, change the title to GW2 System Requirements, close the other threads. Then sticky this thread and remove the GW2 One Thread from the stickies.
1. Changing this thread title will return more results in the search.
2. Newcomers are more likely to search the phrase System Requirements than "The will my computer run GW2 thread". Too sloppy.
3. Closing the other threads funnels this thread.
4. The 'GW2 One Thread' is now a general chit-chat @ GW2 thread. We don't need it sticky as a relevant information dump- which there are 2 of already in the Video and Mass Info threads.
5. Apologies for telling you how to do your job, but I am sorta awesome.
6. <3s, dear.
My laptop has fallowing hardware with Win7, 32bit
- Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P8400 2.26, 2.27 GHz
- 3GB RAM
- NVidia GeForce 9600 GT 512MB(+1278 MB from RAM) total of 1790 MB
Do you think I can run with low graphical settings? And there is another problem for me that is I can't play if FPS is under 40. Do you think I can run it over/at 40 FPS?
AMD E-350 @ 1.6ghz.
I'm gonna have to upgrade this.
Question, though, how 'bad' will I be able to run it?
Radeon HD 6310
I was able to get SWTOR to low/med (except for draw distance, thanks for not letting me lower that, Bioware!)
Warcraft was med/high. I only really ran into issues with a certain Ultraxxion bug.....
It's a Lenovo B575 laptop, btw.
Oh just to mention, to those that don't know...
You will need to approximately double the spec requirements of the recommended of any MMO to play it at its best quality. Trust me, even though I met the requirements for RIFT, I am still unable to play the game and raid with low settings with high fps.
One of the more unique posts I have read thus far, pertaining to Blizzard and their Design Philosophy.
Win 7 ultimate
Intel(R) Core (TM) i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz 2.79 GHz
NVidia GTX550 Ti
(what settings roughly)

'And all will burn beneath the shadow of my chin'
Greetings fellow MMOC'ers. My g/f did the "Can you run it?" for GW2 on her PC, and her computer failed... which SHOCKED both of us. Since it is because of the card (ATI Radeon 4200), what would you tech savy people suggest as far as affordable (under $100-150) upgrade?
Also, I realize there may very well be a power supply issue as well with this upgrade, any and all suggestions will be welcome.

As you say, you may also need to replace the power supply - but be aware, many people will "overquote" the power supply you need. I'm using a 570GTX in my machine with a Core i7 2600K, it runs happily on a 550W (but don't get a "me too" 550W - it needs to be a good, reliable HONEST 550W).
Make sure your computer can run it, however. (Power supply, motherboard, all that stuff)
