So let me start off by apologzing if this is the wrong place to post this. I looked around for some GW2 forums, but they were not to be found.
So I'm considering buying Guild Wars 2- partly because I get a head-start before other players at launch time, but mainly because it means I get access to the Beta!
Herein lay the problem.
I tested my PC with "Can You Run It?", the website that tests your hardware for run-ability.It said, of course, that I passed with flying colors! Except...not really.
The thing is I tested my PC with several other games I have, like Civilization 5 and SW:TOR. Again, it claimed that I passed with flying colors. The problem is, though, that I CAN'T play those games at top graphics- to the contary, I have to run both only slightly above bottom level to retain any reasonable game speed (although with Civ 5 the massive 19 player games I play could definitely contribute to the lag), thus losing all shadows and a good bit of texture quality.
So here I am: I want to ask if I'd be able to play GW2 with my computer (specs listed below), and if so how much detail would I have to give up and how much lag would I have to deal with?
Intel Core i5-2500k CPU @ 3.30GHz
16 GB RAM
64 bit OS (Windows 7)
GeForce GT 520 Graphics Card
I can post other hardware spec on request.
Any and all responses are appreciated.
The answer is 42 you idiot!
