Getting 35-65fps at 1680x1050 questing around with Best Appearance setting + supersampling. Often I get 50-60fps+ just standing still, but sometimes turning around my fps drops to 30-40fps.
Right now my cpu is bottlenecking my gpu so until I can buy a new cpu/mobo/ram which settings in GW2 affect the CPU the most? Ideally want to get 50-60fps while getting the most eye candy graphics from my gpu.
Lowered each graphic settings one by one to see how it changes my FPS. "Shadows" settings seems to affect my FPS the most about 3-5fps loss. "Shaders" was another that lowered my fps but not much 1-2fps. Everything else even at max setting didn't affect my fps. The difference from best performance setting to best appearance was only about 10fps at best. Guess it shows how much my CPU really bottlenecks in gw2.
