Hello Everyone,

I am looking to upgrade my system in order to run Guild Wars 2 on max settings. I don't know if this will be possible with my current rig, here are my specs:

--Intel Core i5 650@ 3.20 GHz 3.19 Ghz
--8 GIG RAM
--MSI RS450 512MB Graphics Card
--CoolMaster Elite Power 400W
(RS-400-PSAR-J3/RS-400-PSAP-J3)
--Gigabyte H55M-UD2H Mother Board

For the monitors, I have been looking up the following two monitors:

I need a graphics card that will support both model monitors (I will be running a dual monitor setup) and be able to run Guild Wars 2 on max settings.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

  1. So you have 500$ for two monitors and graphics card, correct?
    With this budget you can buy either two decent monitors or new graphics card + new PSU (and maybe one display).
