    Purchasing a new GPU, advice appreciated :)

    Hi there!

    I'm currently looking for a new GPU to play GW2 with but i'm inexperienced and unsure what to purchase. i'd preferably want to run GW2 on high setting but i'd be willing to play on medium if my budged doesn't allow me to.

    My current computer specs are:

    Cpu: Intel core i5 650
    GPU: Nvidia Geforce 340
    RAM: 4gb

    My current budget for a graphics card is £180 maximum.

    If you could give me some recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.

    If it is in your budget, I strongly recommend the 660. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/660?vs=549

    Blizzard games seem to run better on Nvidia cards.
