Hello, I have this problem playing Guild Wars 2, I run it on medium details and have like 20~fps and 11~fps when turning around or fighting many opponents.

My specs are:

Core: 500W
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (build 2600)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Ram: 3,25GB
Video Card: AMD Radeon Hd 7850 GV-R7850OC-2GD
Video Ram: 2.1GB
T&L: yes
Pixel Shader: 5.0
Vertex Shader: 5.0
Sound: AMD High Definition Audio Device
Disk Space: 61.2 GB

Can anyone help me please? What is the cause of these "bites" in the game?

Maybe its a CPU Bottleneck.
And Upgrade to a Windows 7 64bit. That will run games even faster.
XP doesn't support 64bit. 32bit uses only 3.25 GB ram.

Follow these steps and you'll see a Difference in performance:

Upgrade to W7 64bit
OC you CPU near 3Ghz.

Now you'll see a better performance.

For that he has to upgrade to Win XP x64 Edition.
Which is completely useless, as no games support XP now.

And found this on Wikipedia
Should be helpful. :)

The primary benefit of moving to 64-bit is the increase in the maximum allocatable virtual memory. A single standard process on a 32-bit Windows operating system is limited to a total of 2,093,056 kilobytes (2 GB minus one 4 KB page), while large address aware [40] 32-bit processes can allocate up to 4 GB. Windows XP x64 can support much more memory; although the theoretical memory limit a 64-bit computer can address is about 16 exabytes, Windows XP x64 is limited to 128 GB of physical memory and 8 terabytes of virtual memory per process while the practical limit is usually the size of the pagefile.
Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Windows XP 64-bit Edition Version 2003 are the only releases of Windows XP to include Internet Information Services 6.0, which matches the version shipped with Windows Server 2003; other versions of XP include 5.1. 64-bit versions of Windows XP are also immune to certain types of viruses and malware that target 32-bit systems, since most system files are 64-bit. The extra registers of the x86-64 architecture can result in performance improvements in certain kinds of applications, but more often than not, will result in a slight decrease in performance when compared to the same application implemented in 32 bit x86 code running on Windows XP 32 bit editions.

Thanks. I'll consider this option. Should I get Win 8 or Win 7 64 bit? Which is the better ifor gaming in your opinion?
Also, Can the problems occur because this video card has a minimal requirement of a 500W core and I have the 500W core?->Should I get a better one so it allows the VCard to work up its limits? Can it be caused by that?

CPU is primary cause, oc for a temp fix, upgrade for a real solution. XP is great, but sadly the significant driver improvements of the 7xxx series do not apply to XP, as well as dx11 features, some which improved quality at the cost of fps, some which simply improve fps, depending on the game.

Windows 7 64bit. W8 isn't yet optimized for every game.

Well, PSU Power is enough. But what is the Brand of that PSU. It should be very good one or else don't risk your PC's life.
I've Heard that many people lose their Mobo and GPUs because their PSU blew or burn't.
