    Intel Q6600 at 3.2ghz OC
    MSI GTX 660 OC
    Samsung 830 SSD
    8GB Ram

    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.

    Update:
    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.

    I always found it strange that my brother ran this game without any stutter and we have the exact same pc, but I have an amd 5870 with 6 gigs of ram and he has a 5850 with 4 gigs

    but I just had a breakthrough...

    I've been suffering with 10-20 fps on all settings and resolutions.

    I've tried different versions of amd's drivers, nothing seemed to work, until I took apart my graphics card and cleaned it...and cleaned the dust out of my processor fan.

    I can now run it 1920x1200 everything on max 60 fps....time to play this game at last


    ----------------------

    system info - i7 920 2.7ghz 6 gigs ram amd 5870

    Hey guys, first time posting on this website. I've been itching to buy GW2 for the longest time, however I think my GPU is going to hold me back on world v world.

    I'm not much of a computer person, so I'm just going to list what I think is pertinent info and hopefully someone can ballpark whether I can run world v world comfortably (20~ fps) on lowest settings.

    AMD II 840T
    AMD Radeon HD 6450 (512mb/DDR3)
    8GB DDR3 system memory
    Windows 7

    If anybody can answer my question, thanks in advance!

    So i was wondering if i could run this since ive been looking for a new game for a while now.
    my spec is as follows:
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 380 @ 2.53GHz
    4gb ram
    windows 7 64 bit
    sound card.
    and plenty of hard drive space.

    The only thing im worried about is my graphics. i have Intel(R) HD Graphics..... Its a laptop from like 2010 is when i think i bought it.
    What do you guys think?

    You'll barely be able to run it. Once you get into WvW you'll be below 10 fps.

    how will my system do

    Amd 965BE x4 (game makes it run very hot
    4gb ram
    msi gtx 560ti
    windows 764 bit
    23inch mnitor

    anyone know how the radeon 6670g (DDR3) is fairing with GW2? I read quite a bit during the beta and stress test (yes, not fully optimized bad time to side) that this card, in specific was having some problems. As the game has been out for a bit was curious to see if anyone has got some results on how well it performs.

    here's a link to my full system specs:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883229285

    I upgraded to windows 8, shouldn't make a difference though

    also : monitor is 1900x1080

    Hoping my computer will run it, cross my fingers ;P

    So back when guild wars 2 was first released I purchased an MSI GeForce GTX 660ti OC hoping to at least run the game at acceptable levels. I was severely disappointed with the performance of that card and decided to RMA it. I've been without a GPU since then waiting on some prices to come down on other cards while I also expanded my budget a bit. On the 660ti @ 1680x1050 with every single in game setting set to the highest possible option, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, super sampling, you name it. My fps at times dipped into the 25 range or slightly lower while just running around the open world doing dynamic events here and there, and would probably sit around 38-42 fps on average, rarely going as high as 60fps (monitor limited).

    My budget has gone from $300.00 to $500.00 for a graphics card .I've purchased a nice 1080 monitor and I want whichever GPU is going to give me the best performance in guild wars 2 with the latest drivers.

    I've tried looking for very recent benchmarks for GW2 and have not been able to track them down on my own, so I have no material off of which to guide me towards the right GPU for me. If anyone has first hand experience with this game using anything from a GTX 670/680 to an AMD 7970, I would value your advice greatly. Here are my PC specs, I don't think I'll be running into any bottlenecks with it.

    ASUS Maximus Gene-z Micro-ATX motherboard.
    Intel Core i7 2600k @ 3.4ghz stock speed.
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB DDR3 1600.
    Gaming @ 1920x1080 resolution.
    Thermaltake TR2 600W PSU 1x 6pin & 1x 6+2pin connectors.

    My specs:
    Ati mobility radeon HD 5470 1GB
    AMD Turion II P520 Dual-core 2.30 GHz
    4GB ram
    laptop
    so can it run?

    Gonna jump in with my own specs here aswell.

    Operating System - Windows Vista Home Edition 64bit
    Processor - AMD Phenom 9750 Quad Core 2.4GHz
    GPU - Radeon Sapphire HD 4850 X2 1GB GDDR 3
    RAM - 4GB
    Monitor Resolution - 1680 x 1050

    Been playing WoW for 6years but its just lost all its charm for me and im really interested in GW2. However,after a rather horrific experience with SWTOR earlier in the year id love to find out before hand if my specs are capable of running GW2 on any decent level. Not expecting ultra level graphics across the board..im more concerned with playability and a measure of stability.

    Traditionally my CPU has been the biggest bottle neck but ive yet to find a game that i cant run on a playable level. Had awful problems in pvp with SWTOR but it was still playable..plus that games engine was a horribly unoptimised mess so it was hard to nail down the exact problems.

    MMO's are a different beast altogether when it comes to this..so yeah,would love to hear from anyone in the know what chances i have of running GW2. Please and thank you. =)

    Hallo. I'm thinking about getting GW2 for myself and the GF and was just wondering how well this PC will run it. Preferably want to run at max settings (or near max).

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
    CPU: Intel Core i7 CPU 860
    Ram: 16GB
    Mobo: EVGA P55 SLI LE E653
    GPU: GeForce GTX470


    Thanks.

    It'll kick its ass. The CPU and RAM are overkill for most anything gaming, but that Graphics card is underpowered, especially when compared to everything else.

    Can I play it?

    Just FYI, I've been running the game using the Beta Mac client on a 2011 MacBook Air 13", and it runs at perfectly playable speeds and is pretty stable (one crash in 5 intense days). The Intel HD graphics mean the display settings are pretty much all on Low and it rarely gets over 20 fp, but it still looks excellent and it all works.

    Would I be able to run it?

    Windows XP Home SP3
    Pentium 4 2.8GHz
    3.00GB RAM
    Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT
