I'm trying to play guild war 2, sorry i couldn't post this on their website for errors and problems. My question is why isn't there any improvement on my pc? I upgrade alot of my components just to play GW2, but i'm still getting very little frame rate like 8-12 only???
Before upgrade my Spec
Model Aspire 1100
2 gig ram
AMD Athlon 2324 64x2 2.1gig dual core CPU
nvidia 9500 gt
Window 7 32 bit
I was running 8-12 on everything lowest setting
My New Upgrade
4 gig rams
AMD Athlon 64x2 5200 2.7 gig dual core CPU
Nvidia GTX 460 1 gig ram

have you tried to install new drivers?

your cpu is basically borderlands minimal requirements and gw2 really doesn't run well on a low end cpu.

CPU bottleneck?

Don't go by the minimum system requirements unless you like slow performance frame by frame animation style game play.

See the effect of CPU Clock and CPU Core/Thread Scaling on GW2 here:

Your CPU would rank well below any of the CPUs you see in that review.
