    I highly doubt this PC would play GW2 without FPS issues. Intel processors are far better in terms of gaming so you might want to try an i3-2300+

    Maybe but that machine is extremely old and not worth that kind of money 250$ tops.
    Current Computers: Gaming Rig, HTPC
    Future Builds: Pfsense Firewall

    Any computer coming with the Phenom X4 four-digits are not worth those sums of money.
