This setup, in combination with a Sapphire 7770 1GB (at stock), plus 4GB DDR2 @ 860Mhz gives me 60FPS consistently with most settings on high.
I was planning to upgrade to a Phenom II X4 965 in January, but this setup has proved to be surprisingly effective, so I thought I'd share it... I don't know how game code is optimized at present (favours higher clocks vs 'moar coars' at lower frequencies?).
I think he just wants a forum URL that he can link to, to 'fool' someone into buying a PC of this spec to run Guild Wars 2 at a constant 60fps.

It's more that the current AMD FX-#### processors aren't much better than the AMD Ahtlon II X2 anyway.
I'd hate to see how it handles the scenario Orlean describes.
