Want to know how my system if for gaming at 2560x1440 and any personal GW2 beta players playing at 2560x1440.
I really want to play at ultra/max settings.
Currently I can max out D3 without any glitches as that’s the only game that’s been tested with my current setup. I also have two other monitors that are only used for 2D applications as I only play on the U2711.
Haha, well the fact that you can max out D3 is not strong evidence. It's like saying your car can safely accelerate to 40 miles an hour and wondering whether you can try stock car racing. But the 680 is a great card, and you won't have CPU bottlenecks. So until the game is out and we know for sure what the final system requirements are, I can't imagine advising you to do anything more than that. If you have to, the 750W PSU will support a second 680.
I crossfired before two 5850's was my previous GPU set up and I can't stand the driver issues.
I also play in windows full screen mode so i can "mouse-over" to the flanking monitors when needed (web pages, etc etc) so x-fire or sli is not in my favor. Hence i went with the fastest single GPU i could get my hands on....=(
What games would you compare GW2 too? (CPU/GPU wise)
I find it hard to believe that the 930 @ 4.1 is going to be a bottleneck. Compare the per-core chart on Tom's: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/x86-core-performance... Bloomfield is not that different from Sandy Bridge. A 930 might not normally seem like it could compete, but at your level of OC, I think it's definitely sufficient--essentially no different from, say, an i5-3550 (ivy bridge) or an i7-2600 without OC.
edit: here's another thing to check, anandtech's CPU benchmarks, which show that the 920 (which is clocked slightly slower) is essentially different from an i5-2400 only by the ratio of their clock speeds: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/47?vs=363
I really doubt that you'd see more than a minor bump in frames by upgrading your CPU. It's still a great chip, especially with your overclock. Wait for Haswell! (Of course, this is all speculative until we see benchmarks of the final GW2 build, but I still can't believe it would be anything other than a minor difference in fps.) Save your money!
