  1. Unfortunately, probably not... Look for a computer that has at least a Radeon HD 6670 or a GeForce GT 640.

    EDIT: Here, I found one for around the same price: http://www.walmart.com/ip/iBUYPOWER-Gamer-Power-WA569B-Desktop-PC-with-AMD-FX-6100-Processor-8GB-Memory-1TB-Hard-Drive-and-Windows-7-Home-Premium-Monitor-Not-Included/21009301
  2. Nope. not with that GPU in it.

    you'll get about 20 fps at medium settings.

    even the 6670 gets *** frame rates at balanced.... gotta get at least a $100 graphics card to run it decently lol.

    that should be fine if you turn down the resolution
  5. I used to have an Asus 6670 DDR5 and it runs the game ok. The problem is the game is VERY CPU ran. If your cpu sucks you will run at 15fps and your gpu will bottleneck. GW2 requires pretty expensive parts. You should think about buying a custom computer with either a Fx-8350 (or 8320) or an i5 3570k (or 2500k) The cpu will run you around $200, next is the motherboard. Amd motherboards are cheaper so I would go amd, but its up to you. Cases run $30 to $120. A good graphics card will run you $120 - $300 The HIS 7850 is $170 on newegg (GOOD DEAL) You will only need a 500 watt power supply unless your overclocking then go 600 watt. Most people over buy on power supplies. You will only need 4gb of ram, get a corsair blue for about $25 (make sure its 1600 mhz) Western makes cheap and very good hard drives. You will spend about $80 on a 1Tb hard drive. These are just some ideas, that system would run the game at 60fps max settings easy. That's a best case system, so just work down from this. Your going to spend around $500 - $800 Just look around for what fits you.
  6. What do you guys think about this....

    They got an option for customizing an IBUYPOWER PC from Walmart.

    I realize I can save 100$ or so if I make it myself But Mom will not let me.

    What do you guys think about this?
    Case
    (NZXT Source 210 Chassis, Black)
    Motherboard & Processor
    (AMD FX-6100 Processor with Motherboard)
    Operating System
    (Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-Bit Edition)
    Memory
    (4 x 2GB = 8GB DDR3-1333 Gaming Grade Memory Module)
    Hard Drive
    (500GB 7200RPM Hard Disk Drive)
    Graphics Card
    (AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card)
    Optical Drive
    (24X DVD+/-RW DL Optical Drive)

    Mid settings?

    Also the total for this is 627$
  7. ya. that'll definitely play it at mid settings at a decent resolution.
