OP  11/24/12 5:25:27 AM#1

Hi guys..

I would like to ask about the requirement to run this game...

I know there's the systemrequirementlab and even some of the requirement already pasted around here somewhere but those who play the game and experience it themselves must know better than some speculation...

 

Here is my rig..

AMD X2 Dualcore 2.8 Ghz 5200

4gb DDR2 RAM

ATI 5670

and jsut enough space to install the game...

how laggy will my performance is?i don;t mind playing lowest quality at all i just want pretty smooth gameplay

Thanks for the help in advance

Very laggy, the game is having some performance issues in the last week or so since the Lost shores event.

I cant get more than 25-30 fps with my HD7850 on medium-low settings lately

It won't be comfortable (smooth) imho.

The processor is definitely too slow to run GW2 confortably in my opinion.

Unfortunately GW2 requires ~1000€ computer which was bought within a year or 2. Anything else and FPS gets so low that you feel like throwing your monitor out of window.

I'm really curious as to what you mean by the highlighted line.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

Misinformation - my CPU (Phenom II X4 940) was released in 2009, I still have DDR2 memory, and the game runs fine on it.

How hard can it be to understand that part? He probably has ~18GB free space in his hard drive and GW2 eats 15GBs.

I was wrong if it really runs at 60FPS 90% of the time with your PC, but I bet that it's running at 30-40FPS.

Do you think that is ok?

It's requirements on the box are actually higher than what you can get away with. They are very conservative requirements, if your just out you should be able to play.

I have a decidedly mid range pc - fx4, 6850, 8gb ddr. I can run gw2 full whack at 1080p at a steady 50+ fps.

The engine is excellent, possibly the best in a mmo yet. I have other issues with the game, like lack of competition, easyness of solo play and the weird progression curve but its engine is extremely good.

How can engine be good if it requires so much from processor and almost nothing from graphics card? The graphics aren't that great anyway, even with 2560x resolution and max settings.

I helped him by saying that not to bother to get the game unless his willing to throw 1000€ for a brand new PC. His hard drive space doesn't matter, since he has to replace each and every part of his PC.

 

There's also an alternative: better games which have better graphics and his PC can run them with better FPS.

 

[mod edit]

 

Seems like fanboys here are somekind of group in need of protection (similar to women, black people) since mod cleans any part where they are criticized. I could understand "off-topic" reason, but not trolling.

I'd say a Quad i5 for solid performance. Dual core imo will be under-par a bit. (That is what I see on my systems)
