Just read about the game, it is exactly the type of MMORPG I've been looking for. Don't really need to chiong to enjoy the game, so can go at gradual pace, also it is one-time payment. Last time I played FF11, it was to date the best experience for me and I think GW2 will set the new benchmark.

However, I'm worried about the specs.

My computer barely scrapped through the minimum specs.

Anyone who have had similar experience can tell me if I can play the game? If so, what is the worse and norm to expect? Is it possible to run in norm/low graphics mode and still be playable/controllable in bigger events? Heard will lag when many people around even for high end com, if too lag until cannot control then mean can't play liao.



My com specs:
Windows XP Home 5.1, Service Pack 3
Acer AL1751 17" (Resolution: 1280 x 1024)
Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.80Ghz
NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT
2GB RAM


Thank you!
just set to lowest setting for graphic setting lor
plus u still on old sch 4.3 monitor too
unless u want to play epic eye candy then save up for better pc lor
gw2 is not a low and games like d3
or don't want to spend just go to a LAN shop play lor
I can recommsd u which LAN got gw2 installed with good specs

This 1 is just stress test, but if stress test is already so late this month i doubt BWE#3 will be anywhere near beginning of next month.

Yes like what other bro has stated, upgrade to a 7850 will be very fine. Or if budget allows, go for gtx670. you need a new graphic card to fight dragons in gw2
