IMO most of my hardware is sufficient almost all the app's and games I intend to, but for some reason after I dropped $60 on guild wars 2 i found the game to be nearly unplayable due to jerky visuals and low frame rates. I realize the card i have is relatively outdated, but this being my first build i didn't know better than skimping on the video card...
Any suggestions welcome whether about graphics cards or any suggestions on my build at all....
Thanks in advance

At 1080p the 7870 shouldn't have any trouble playing Guild Wars 2 (and other games) at full detail and high framerate. Plus you'll be getting better performance than this with the GHz version I posted above and with the opportunity of OCing further to just under stock HD7950 levels this card is great for you!
