I've found Can You RUN it to be trustworthy.
Tested my own old machine on it before buying GW2 and it made an accurate prediction.
(able to play with decent FPS at mid/low settings)
So my 6870 is dead. My backup is a 4650. What are some things I should probably keep away from (outside of WvW) if I hope to have any joy playing?

Cpu looks solid, yes I would start from borderlands to see how it fares especially on zergs. EB especially SM can be pretty taxing especially when 3 factions are fighting for the castle.
Hey. I have been wandering if my lap top could run this for a while. Im not looking to run it on ultra and i dont really care if i have to run it on low. I just want to no if i will have good FPS. I will not be playing WvW at all. Im planing on mainly PVE and mabey a little PVP. Here are the specs.
CPU- AMD Athlon(tm) II P340 Dual-Core Processor
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit
Video Card- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series
Any responses would be great. Thanks.
I'm wondering, has anyone tested GW2 on E8400? Planning to play at 1920 / 1080 with max settings (except shadows, shaders, supersampling).
E8400 4,0 OC
4gb ram OC
radeon 5850 extreme OC
Anyone played it with similar rig? Im especially interested in C2D 8xxx series as this game is cpu demanding. Would i be able to hold 30fps in arena pvp?
Ok. My spec is :
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz 2.33 GHz
4 GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 5400 Series
I can run the game on 20-30 fps in PVE, but when i get in wvw(fights with more than 5-10 ppl) or dragon fights my fps drops below 5. Where is the problem?
Can it work with low settings on my Laptop?:
AMD Athlon Dual core ql-60 1.9 ghz
Ati radeon hd 3200
and what is lowest possible display resolution in this game? 800x600 ?

Hello i know my computer can run it but would will i be able to make it at high settings ??
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 975 Extreme Edition @ 3.33GHz
Asus GTX 570

I'd say yes.
For me the performance is 10 times better compared to release. I'm running it on max with an intel 2500k not clocked, 8 gb ram, SSD and a 560'GTX. Nothing is oc'd and I max it out (27" screen too).
This is more of a personal performance issue. I cannot manage to see boss animations which one shot me. The biggest issues are at Dwayna for example, when there are many people there are just so many spelleffects which cause me tomsee the boss as one big ball of light, every now and then I see the boss through it but I just can't avoid it's attacks because of this.
Is there any way to tune this down to make sure you can see stuff like this properly?
My systems specs are:
AMD HD 7970 with 13.4 Catalyst Drivers(latest)
8 GB DDR3- 1600 RAM
Samsung HDD 7200 RPM – 1TB
Windows 7 – Updated to the newest build
But I get 20 FPS even on the lowest settings…. I run at 2560 × 1600 resolution but lowering that to 1600 × 1200 didn’t change anything, I still got 20 FPS on the lowest settings. Any help please?
Hi! I recently bought a computer and am wondering if I can run this game, and if so, how high the settings can I run it on?
The specs are:
Operating System: Windows 8 64 bit
CPU Processer: Intel Core i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs),~ 3.4GHz
RAM: 32,768 MB
Direct X: 11
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 660
Thanks for the help!

I'm immensely confused and frustrated.
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)
Processor: Intel Core i7 CPU 860, 2.80 GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.8 GHz
RAM: 4 GB
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 5800, 1 GB, 875 MHz
By all accounts I can find (or understand), I should be able to run this game just fine.
But with low settings, I get 20 FPS maximum.
I've updated to the latest drivers and messed with all the settings ANet recommends. Anyone have any further suggestions?
- - - Updated - - -
I should also make something else clear: I'm running on a PC I built on my own. Everything definitely does work, but are there any common mistakes I could have made during assembly that could cause this kind of behavior?
That's a pretty low amount of RAM. I'd get some more RAM like 6-8 gigs. Also update your Graphics card.
Those having performance issues with AMD cards (e.g. super-low FPS at any settings), you need to experiment with different driver versions, and make sure you do "clean" installs of the drivers (i.e. fully remove previous drivers and then install the new ones).
My fps totally depends on the number of players in the area, but in open zones I get around ~95-130fps @ 1920x1080. All settings fully maxed (except Shadows which is on High), using Supersample textures. Specs are i5 2500K @ 4.7ghz, 8GB RAM, GTX780 @ 1215/7000mhz. The game makes full use of the GPU, pushing it to 99% load...which is awesome.
But GW2 has strangely long loading times considering I've put it on a Samsung 830 SSD, most other games fly. For example just switching between Heart Of The Mists and Lion's Arch puts me through full-duration loading screens even though I just came back from the previous area (a lot of it should already be on RAM). Weird.
AMD Athlon(tm) II x2 250 Processor (2 CPUs), ~3.0GHz
ATI Radeon HD 5570
I have been playing for a while now but in WvW its like watching a power point presentation... is the reason why I can only run the game on lowest settings because of my computer or could it be something else?
It's your computer. That's an absolutely ancient dual-core CPU (actually getting rare these days) and HD5570 could barely be called a graphics card, I think the latest onboard solutions are actually better lol.
Not meaning any offense of course, just saying it how it is
There isn't much you can do besides a 100% full upgrade to your entire rig.
