Intel Core i5-2500K processor - 3.30GHz
•8GB DDR3 SDRAM system memory (expandable to 32GB) -
•1TB SATA hard drive -
•24x DL DVD+/-RW Drive -
•10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet -
•NVIDIA GT520 graphics card - With 1GB dedicated graphics memory
Software:•Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Edition


Would you consider this a OK prebuilt for 540? I understand the graphics card needs some work, but do you think it can run Guild Wars 2 max settings with 40-50 fps?

How much of a bad card is the 520?

what card would you recommend. its impossible to find store deals on good cards. would you rather do the 560ti? or the 7850

7850 is suppose to be comparable to the gtx 570, and uses less power. Power usage might be an issue since you are getting a pre-built and they tend to have shaky PSU's.

check out techbargains.com, there is usually some sort of graphics card on sale there.

or yo can wait for the 660ti or 670 when they both come out. the 7850 is a great small card that has pretty good performance

I would be worried about your power supply as Egilbe pointed out. You either need to research the capacity your current one can meet, then shop video cards based on that instead of "Should I get a 560 of 7850." Or replace your power supply at the same time.

I should mention it isnt a prebuilt like "ibuypower" or something. Its a homebuilt that a friend from work built himself in january. I will ask what PSU he is running on it
