GuildWars 2 System

Hello community of TH! :)

Im new to this forum so, hello!

As the release of the game GW2 is coming closer and closer, im looking for a new pc.
Now the problem is, im low on budget.

So i need a pc that can play GW2 at medium/ high settings, and i'll upgrade it later on if i want to play it at max settings.
If you can build a pc with my budget for high settins, i'll appreciate that!

My budget is around 500~650€ *650 max!*

Now i was thinking about the i3 2100 and 6850 radeon graphic card, but the other pc items. I dont have a idea what to choose because im only a bit common with CPU and GPU

So the question is,

Could someone build a pc for me within 650 euro, to play GW2 on medium/high settings?

Thanks for youre help

  1. That CPU and GPU both sound good, I'd just get a cheap H61 motherboard with 4GB of RAM and a decent ~400W PSU and you should be set.
  2. April 10, Pre-Purchase :) .. Can't wait!!!
  3. I couldnt find anywhere if there is gonna be that disturbing "phasing" thing again. Being unable to see other players. Is it going to be present at GW 2 ?

    Not that I'm aware of.. Lot's of beta vids are up on youtube. Can't recall hearing anything about that issue.

    Rosewill Challenger-U3
    TX650
    Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB
    ASRock H61M
    i3 2120
    CM Hyper 212 Evo
    Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe 120GB

    Total: ~500 Euros (your currency is Euros, right?) which leaves a nice 150 for a new Keplar or 7800 GPU.

    I didn't include a HDD because I thought 120GB would be enough for GW2, OS, a few other programs, etc.

    why do you recommend him an aftermarket cooler when he doesnt state anything about overclocking and he has limited budget

    Quieter, cooler operation. He still has enough for a 7850.

    It's ok.

    I would replace that PSU with a Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W or SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W

    The HDD will be much slower than a SSD. Are you sure you still want to go with a HDD?
  10. As a repeat offender on trying to use Rosewill's Computer components. Avoid it like the plague. Stick to more reliable brands. ESPECIALLY on a PSU, The Seasonic will be an enormously safer bet.
  11. It's hard to find seasonics in Europe, maybe the XFX core 450W instead? That is seasonic manufactured.

    :whistle: FYI Rosewill's Green series are excellent PSU's,and are in fact made by Seasonic. Don't judge a book by it's cover,you have to read what's inside.
