How's this looking for GW2?

Hey, I was wondering what frame rate I could expect from my VERY outdated rig playing GW2 at 1400 x 1050? High medium, low??

Specs are...
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz
RAM: 4 gigs of DDR2
GPU: Radeon HD 4870 1gb
Case: Antec 900
PS: 750watt

Recommendations for any parts that you think I should update is welcome. I have roughly a $200 budget for any parts I should ABSOLUTELY update. Thanks!

  1. I am only guessing because until its released thats all I can do but your CPU is 1.5 times faster than the minimum requirements and your graphics card is massively over. So based on this I suspect it will be limited by your CPU not GPU which is not worth upgrading for $200. I also expect you will be able to play it on high or at very least medium with good enough FPS.
  2. Hm that sounds nice, because i have nearly the same configuration and I was afraid of the performance of gw2. I am so much looking forward for it, this weekend, prerelease action :)
  3. It will run good, you have a very capable video card. You might get some slow downs in heavily populated areas, but such is the nature of MMOs
  4. Thanks for the replies! I figured I would be ok, just wanted to be sure. Can't wait for the pre release either, only a few more days!
