Hey, I am in no way 'techno savvy', and was planning on upgrading my desktop computer, and was wondering which CPU would be better for Guild Wars 2. I recently found a Core 2 Duo 2.66 Ghz, however previously to finding it I was going to upgrade my motherboard from a Socket 775, to a LGA1155, and then get a Intel Pentium Dual Core G640. So which would be better for FPS/performance?

If you plan to overclock your C2D, then I would recommend you to stick with that since you can't OC the 1155 Pentiums AT ALL. If you're just looking for a "Plug and Go" solution, then the Pentium would be the better choice :)
