CPUs don't scale a lot for graphic intensive games like GW2. Your C2D might be the point of inflexion though, under which the CPU may become the bottleneck.
But I guess it should be fine. Just look up your 8800GTS (there are 3 different models of it with varying power) and be comfortable with medium settings.
Yea angle isnt common with actualy trying look what can go wrong with game. And TB example on start was great too of ppl changed perspective while playing game they want.
Cash shop and microtransactions as concept, and how dangerous they can be was rly good part, mostly because betwen fans its not something you can discused often, its one of this topics which is asap dismished "but thats optional".
Honestly I thought it will be worse, but they actualy seemed to try think what can go wrong with game but from that "I care about game and wouldnt like this to happen" pov not just bashing.
