Go buy a better GPU. If you can afford GW2, you can afford the GPU.

Very bad advice. The game is obviously CPU bound and my current GPU can handle GW2 just fine. Not even close to 100% usage for GPU.

It could probably use at least 200 manhours of optimization and even then it would just barely run with 40 fps on my PC.

 

They wanted money fast so they released the game. They milked customers out of their money already so there's no more need to please those who bought the game, but can't run it well enough. GW2 is finished. At least for those with not super computers.

The fact that you can play the game with a video card 4 generations old and only 3gb ram (ddr2 at that) should leave you relieved.  Is GW2 optimized for an extremely old setup? No, but it runs really really well on my mediocre setup.

Maybe you can youtube some Low vs High videos of the game then realize its time to upgrade your dinosaur

I have a gtx 550 ti running the new beta NVidia drivers and I am running 30-75 fps. Never hardly see it below about 31-32. Thos enew drivers make a world of difference.

I run everything on high, 1920x1080 resolution.  I'm generally getting 60fps(vsync on), with the occasional dip down to 45.

 

I play on a gaming rig I built two years ago:

I5 2.8ghz overclocked to 4.2ghz.

8 gb ram

60 gb SSD

A pair of Geforce 465s in sli.  Bios unlocked to 470, and overclocked about 20% over stock 470 speed.

OS is a highly stripped down version of Win7 64 bit.

 

Was having some serious stability issues and some performance issues when I first got the game.  Updated to the nvidia beta 304.79 drivers and everything is smooth now.

I have to suffer just because I don't buy a new PC once every 2 years? Dinosaur? I think not.

I get 60FPS 90% of the time (max my monitor can punch out ><). That sometimes drops to the 40's when entering the likes of cities where huge amounts of players are loading, but once they have its smooth again.

No you dont man, you can get 8gb ram for ~$40, and your video card is getting severely outdated, misc upgrades every few years is relatively inexpensive and unfortunately necessary. Of the 2 I would bet the 3gb ram is holding you back the most

Intel core 2 quad q6600 2.4 ghz

3gb ram ddr2 (I think)

Vista 32 bit

6850 Overclocked through the CCC 900/1150

1920 x1080

Everything on high with the exception of Shadows :Med , Post Processing :Low , & Reflections set to none

 

Game looks incredible at these settings, FPS Is a amazing 50-70 fps out in the world where not many players are around, In Dynamic events with alot going on I can dip as low as the Mid 20's, Divintys Reach i see a steady 30 -33 fps.

 

I hope this helps anyone with a similiar PC. Overall i am very pleased with the fps i am getting on this rig after playing Tera with their shit optimization. It seems as each day goes on my fps keeps on improving , A-Net is obviously very focused on improving our FPS in game which is great.

Wrong, wrong and wrong.

 

GW2 barely uses any memory so what's the point of getting more? If I want faster memory I have to get a new motherboard and more or less everything with it.

 

GW2 barely uses any GPU so getting a better one seems a bit useless. It's clearly draining my CPU, not GPU.

 

If I get a new processor, I have to also get a new motherboard and more or less everything with it.

Considering that OP doesn't even know his GPU model(4800 is GPU series name) and nobody else having any issues even on quite old PCs - I'd say problem clearly lies between monitor and keyboard. Expecting that wolrld(or in this case game development) will eveolve around him and his clearly dated PC + his raging on forums is quite funny.

 

Anyways my FPS is solid 60+ on i5 3570, 8GB RAM @ Radeon 7870. Anet made nice game with fluid engine. Everyone who played at least few newer MMORPGs knows that. So either upgrade or don't play.

I did read that AMD CPUs struggled with the game. I forget where. Anyway. Regardless of any advice, correct or incorrect posted in this thread, you got 3 choices.

1. Deal

2. Get hardware

3. Dont play

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

I stay pinned at 60 fps with vsync on. i can go quite a bit higher with it off, but then I bounce around a bit so i prefer the consistancy of it being on.

edit - 1920 x 1080 with everything on max settings except sampling on native and bloom off.

I'm running on a Quad core Q8200, anyone else using that? I have 60-70 fps out and about PVE'ing with only a few players around. Around 15-30 in Lions arch and a damn slideshow in WvWvW zergs and big DE's. I have the settings on medium and the big FPS droppers turned off(vsync, AA etc).

Funny thing is that I start FPS dropping when I close in on a zerg in WvWvW, i don't even seen any players on my screen but aslong as they close (behind a keep or sum) my FPS drops way down, around 5-10. When I leave a zerg I continue on low fps for a couple of minutes, really strange.

Got a small boost from the new beta drivers, maybe 5 fps.

Complete specs:

Q8200 2,37ghz

6 gig ram

GTX 460

 I2500K seems to be the best processor for this game, everyone I know with that CPU runs the game like a charm on highest settings, shame I need a new motherboard for that one.

Main pc - HIS HD5770 1gb,    AMD X3 (triple core) 3.3ghz  4gb ram 1680x1050 windows 7 64bit

about 40-60 all settings on high, game looks and runs great.

 

I installed the game on a USB hard drive and tested the performance on a few computers I have or have access to.First one is a core2duo 2.20 ghz, 2gb ram,  8300gs 256mb windows xp 32 bit  1440x900

The game shouldn't play based on the graphics card. That's right, that is a 8300gs, look it up. The game runs with everything on low. Never gets over 20fps but never drops below 10.

 

Second computer is a P4 3.0ghz HT, 2gb ddr2 667 dual channel ram, hd 4350 512mb pci-e, windows xp 32 bit

The game runs. All settings on low, getting slightly better fps than the first computer. The game does run on a single core processor despite what the system requirements say.

 

I will try on a third computer tommorow. Athlon xp 3000+, 1.5gb ram, hd4650 agp, windows 32. I doubt the game will run on this but I want to see.
