What ScrewySqrl posted will dominate GW2 pretty handily. The only thing I'd suggest is spending $4 more on memory and getting this memory since you may run into issues if you ever get a larger heatsink for that unlocked CPU.

No, that'll have the same problems the GEIL will - the heatsinks are too tall. GSkill Ares has very low heatsinks.

ahh cool, thanks for that bit of info
