Hi im just thinking is this 650€ laptop good enough to run Guild Wars2?

Or maybe i tell you only specs cos finnish language page :P

Intel Core i5 2core 2,6ghz (3,2ghz turbo)

Memory: 6gb

Intel hd graphics 4000

Hard drive: 1tb

I know that intel hd 4000 isnt particulary awesome but im looking to run maybe medium graphics well?

And if GW2 isnt running then does it even run Rift medium settings and good fps?

Laptop is Lenovo IdeaPad G580

    Not sure it'll run GW2 or most new games. Intel graphics is known for having problems with major titles because of some weird stuff on shader 3 and DirectX 9c support. Also might want to look for a laptop with some dedicated video RAM. That's always better (and faster) than shared (which most Intel graphics cards use)

    AsRock 990FX Extreme3
    AMD Phenom II 1090T ~3.2Ghz
    GEiL 16Gb DDR3 1600Mhz
    ASUS GTX970 3x HD monitor 1920x1080

    It will probably run, as it is compatible with everything.  Running well is an entirely different question, and either the processor or the graphics could be problematic.  My guess is that you'll probably be able to make the game run pretty smoothly at moderate graphical settings.  Guild Wars 2 doesn't push a GPU very hard (which is actually a bad thing, because it does too much on the CPU instead of offloading it to the GPU).

    A good friend of mine has a laptop like that, given to him from work to use on travel.

    He is able to game on his OK, not the greatest but doable. Just dont expect high settings.
