Spend 150$ and buy a new video card and you'll be fine.

That 8800gt is like.. two or 3 generations old now.

460 GTX for 150$ or a 550 ti for simliar, maybe 180$.

Radeon 6850 or find a good sale like I did for 6870 - 150$

I always check Tigerdirect.com and newegg.com first.

Nope because my motherboard decided it didn't want to work one morning about 2 weeks after I got the computer working.

Worst advice ever.... Its a mere gamble...

 

WE don't know anything yet about the how the graphics of GW2 will scale...

We don't know anyhting yet about how GW2 will handle Memmory use

We don't know if GW2 is programmed to effectively use more then 2 cores

We don't know how an SSD drive will impact loading times...

 

 

These guys are only telling you how to build a great PC with good bang for your Bugs.... but there is no relationship however to GW2's performance.

 

 

And never build your own PC when you don't know exactly what you're doing and you're not able to troubleshoot your hardware when there is anything wrong. In that case you are much better off buying a DELL, because even those have much much more warranty....

 First you seem to forget or omit the part that the article is a what if guild wars was out today and not a you should go out and buy this stuff today article, this is what is available in the current marketplace and determined to be the best performance/cost ratio. So if it can't handle a game out today, then I don't know what will. Since GW2 is being demo'd at conventions it must be using obtainable hardware today.

We do know that a 32 bit OS can't effectively use more than 4 GB of memory now or in the future, and that a Windows 7 64 Bit OS requires 8 gigabytes for best performance.

We do know that an SSD will increase your performance over a hard disk drive since it's a RAM DRIVE, furthermore SSD caching technologies will improve overall system performance, logically it will improve any game since the disk access time is reduced when reading from the hard drive. You don't have to do any of this BTW.

The # of cores are not the only thing that effects a CPU's performance, there are plenty of older CPUs with 6 cores that don't hold a candle to the newer offerings. Wether or not GW2 supports multi-core which I'm sure they will how can you not in this day and age, you OS will and that can only improve your game performance running on said OS.

Lastly you shouldn't project your inability to upgrade/build your own PC onto others.  Sure you could get DELL to custom build you a computer or go with an Alienware, etc. but you'll still have to pick what parts you want in them like the CPU, Video Card, etc. and that's where this article can help even a novice.

If I can get away with doing this, this is what I will do.  I do run a 32 bit OS (NOT Win7), so....no worries there on RAM.  I've never had a problem playing anything, and I don't think they're going to make GW2 need upgrades on hardware that are out of financial reach if they can help it.  After all....they want people buying the game and playing it.

 

If I can avoid buying a new motherboard, CPU and power supply.....I'm certainly going to.  I'm going to squeeze every last gasp of life from this machine, because when I bought it....I paid dearly for it.  (Nightmare computer boutique story....trust me....you don't wanna know.)

i5 2500k o/c to 4.3

8 gigs ram

only hinderance i have is i have 2 HIS 6850's crossfired, which i recently learned doesnt work with windowed mode, meaning if i want music or web surfing without alt+tabbing i'll sacrifice performance.

overall i think i'm gewd.

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

If you're going to buy a Dell or any pre-made for that matter, pick a company that allows you to actually configure your own and they build it for you.  This way you make sure you not only get the types of compnents you want, but the name brands as well.  Things like a 10k rpm drive instead of 7200rpm, 8gb of the fastest memory, not the slower versions they usually put in basic pre-mades, discrete video and sound cards and not the trash that is integrated on the motherboard, flat screen montors that have at least 5ms response times or faster....etc.  Even if you're a complete computer noob, just visit sites like tomshardware.com for advice on basic computer setups just so you'll know what compenents to get, which are more important for performance and so forth, then use it on the Dell configurator site and you won't get a piece of crap.

 Did you really just put DELL and warranty in the same sentence? You mean like the amazing way DELL sells crappy computers.

Sorry but EVGA for example as well as XFX(at least use to) offer lifetime warranties and sometimes double lifetime even if you sold it to another party.

Processors (Boxed) warranty is 3 years, and don't buy the if you overclock it you void garbage, cause unless that is the root of it, they replace it.

As for its useless to know what system requirements are, I imagine getting a solid machine now will play games now and in the future, and knowing you have a 3-4 year old machine probably won't run it well, its a valid question.  Either way building a solid system will cover your basis, the only part that would be different is a SSD.

The developers said on 1 interview regarding this... If your PC can run GW1 it's good enough for GW2...

Yes my pc would and it's very old. 

 

I believe that the GW2 engine is a heavily modified GW engine. So it should be functional at at least the lowest setting. I'll have to look it up.

 

edit: from the wiki

 

Guild Wars 2 uses a heavily modified Guild Wars game engine which includes support for true 3D environments, more detailed environments and models, better lighting and shadows, new animation and effects systems, plus new audio and cinematics engines and a more flexible combat and skill-casting system.[3] It uses Havok to provide destructible environment and ragdollanimation of creatures[4] and Umbra's occlusion culling technology.[5]

Required system specifications have not been released. The aim is for Guild Wars to run great on 'mainstream' or 'mid-range gaming' PCs.

There will not be "click-to-move" control system, [6] but target-locking will be available.

Since Arenanet has not released the system requirements I can't answer that question. Nobody can, its all guess work.

I know it's old and lame, but will I be able to play, does anyone know?  And if not....is getting a several levels newer gfx card enough to help me out?   That is assuming I can upgrade gfx cards that much with the mobo I have and the power supply.

 

The system specs I read put this card in the middle, like above minimum reqs, but below recommended.  So....it SHOULD be okay, but I wonder how bad it will make the game look?  :(

4Gb of RAM and a better gfx card (like 280 GTX or above) would help a lot.

 

There is probably some good quad core that should be cheap to get if your motherboard can support it.

 

I would wait for the game to be closer to release to get everything tho

 

I don't disagree that there are things he could upgrade.

But there is no way GW2 is using every bit of 4GB of ram, much less a full 8.

I would bank on, that if your PC can play Rift on high settings, you won't have any trouble running GW2 in most instances.  Note I said most though, because some of those massive boss fights I've seen or in the event of massive WvWvW battles where everyone could show up.  I wouldn't doubt some of the best PCs to struggle a little when playing on max!
