I've never understood how people with good PCs have issues like this, I can't see it being the games fault, as I have no issues at all on my i7 and gtx570. No heating issues, graphics on high, 40+ FPS in crowded zones.
It could be your internet connection sucks, do you share it? Do you game while streaming a film? Or maybe you just don't know how to take care of your PC.
To say this games graphics is worse than WoW, just makes me think you are a troll flaming this game out of boredom.
I really wish I had access to your PC, so I could test a game like BF3 and then play GW2, to see what the difference is.
