I've read that GW2 is highly CPU intense, so as I'm looking at building a rig I'm trying to decide if I should go the cheaper route with a 6300 or go higher with the 8000 series. I've seen the benchmark tests from 2012, but I'm guessing that things have been tweaked since then. Anyone have experience with both and could lend a knowledgeable hand?

I haven't played GW2 recently, but my Phenom II X4 970BE does a decent job with it. It isn't as smooth as on my i5-3570K though. I'd think you'd want the 8350 or 8320 for the best experience if you are building an AMD system.

Yeah I'm guessing to be more futureproof for other games later on the 8350 will be preferable, just wondering what kind of difference I'll see right now with GW2
