HD 7770 is the best you can get if you just stretch your budget by ~$10, and it is quite good. It can run Skyrim on max so I think Guild Wars 2 should be just fine.

I searched for what you suggested me on my previous post (http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/390177-33-uninstallin...) but, Unfortunately, it doesnt seem to be available in the nearest stores here and I cant really wait for it to ship since I really need the graphic card right now :sweat:

Im considering this one now:
http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX39037 - as requested by @djangoringo

but I saw this two which are on sale and seems to be in a nifty price at the moment:

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX42655 -Radeon HD 7750 iCooler 2GB DDR3 PCI-E w/ VGA, DVI, HDMI

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX40353 - Radeon HD 7750 iSilence 5 1GB PCI-E w/ Passive Cooler, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort

What do you guys think?

Edit: had to edit since this ones are 7750 not 7770 :(

The asus is better, the icooler is DDR3, the isilence is good for quiet operations, but has lower performance and higher temperatures, same price.
