I pre-purchased GW2 back in august (I think) and leveled all the way to 80 as a Norn warrior with some friends. I noticed the game was doing okay with FPS while using xeons and 1 gtx580 1.5k MB, I knew I wasn't going to be able to set everything to ultra go into a battle and see 60fps but back in october I built a machine for gaming, it's using i7-3770k 4.0Ghz, 2 Gtx 680's, 16gigs of ram. I noticed that a lot of times the game is barely playable with my current rig which doesn't make any sense. I've downloaded new drivers and re-installed drivers quite a few times but to no avail. The frames will go to about 20-30 even when i'm not in battles. It's gotten to the point where I'm thinking of refunding the game. No other games I own have any trouble with fps. I can run fraps in fullscreen 1080p while playing BF3 on ultra settings and not get below 70fps.
If anyone can help with this issue I would greatly appreciate it.
