im getting low 30's to low 40's in LA right now with my sig rig. 40's-50's on open world. Setting are in the first pic below.



Does that mean that me dropping $200 one a cpu and anywhere from 275-400 on a gpu(still would like to try an AMD card becasue of price/performance) will only net me anywhere from 10-20fps difference?
Id be hoping to be able to max the game out and sit at a steady 60 everywehre.(minus supersampling as i noticed that creates some lag with mouse and keyboard imput)

I don't get what everyone is saying. I run a steady 60 fps(Supersampling & post-processing off, reflection turned down). Some times dips to 50 or 55 in Lion's Arch. This is at 2560 x 1440.

You won't notice much difference upgrading your video card, but you will definitely notice a difference upgrading your CPU.

I got a good 20 fps, maybe even 30fps from 1100T (4.0Ghz) to my 3570k (4.4Ghz).

The game is completely smooth for me. Even in Lion's Arch.


You'll have no problems with an AMD video card. The 7xxx series is great. But like I said, CPU will help much more. MMO's are not so much graphics intensive and rely more on the CPU.

I am actually planning on doing the cpu first. i just have to finish up a few jobs i am working on right now. GPU probably wouldnt be until feb/march with my tax return.

Can you show us this in a screenshot?

This is what I get with my PC.

I'd kinda like to get back in guild wars but the one friend I had hit 80 and bailed. Every time I look for guild or groups its just like no one sees my posts. It was a fun game but I eventually went back to WoW because all my friends were there.

I'm pretty sure I've asked for your ign before but no response, ah well if you're happy with wow :-) . Back on topic: what does everyone think the economic balance will be like during winters day? I have some ideas of my own like dyes will shoot up and of course gold/ gem ratio will be outrageous but I wanna know what others think.

I figure it'll do exactly what it did on Halloween, whatever that was exactly.

So GW2 gets nominated IGN game of the year (as if IGN were a good award to win it from) great, now if they win they can put something on the expansion boxes thumb.gif

I'd be more on top of things if I didn't have to sift through 200 posts with whiners. If you don't like something on facebook why are you still liking the page and commenting on posts? buttkick.gif
I have friends who dropped GW2 expecting a bit more out of certain parts of the game, they just preferred the well established familiarity of WoW. My other friends are so addicted to it they've surpassed me with achievements and stuff. The only thing that really grinds my gears are the people who say they bought the CE then didn't like it, want your money back send the CE to me!!!

Yeah I have..more than a few friends.. that picked up the game that barely touched it. The problem with players that were form WoW that I've noticed is they've become so accustomed to loving the way that game is built/works and how it plays so it's both hard to break away from that and a bit tedious. Sure GW2 doesn't necessarily reinvent the MMO wheel so to speak but it does break away from the norm and a lot of people I've talked to don't like that at all.

Not sure what my deal with it is. I had quit wow for a few months and loved gw2. Then I picked wow back up (because my IRL friend talked me into it and he only played twice ironically) if it weren't for my guild and the auction house I probably wouldn't play wow all that much. I'm actually about to cancel my subscription in the beginning of January. I'd like to level my mesmer, I just feel disconnected from him so I don't really know how to jump back in lol.

It really boils down to having too many things fighting for my time lol.

Solution: Play a girl. No joke for some reason I feel more of a "connection" when I play a female character in MMO's. No particular reason really I just do...
