So I have my old rig I got back in '10...haven't done much with it except slap in a bit more ram when Cosair sticks were on sale.
Here it is:
Windows 7 64 bit
Intel i5 760 @ 2.80GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250
Suprisingly I'm able to play Skyrim at slightly above Ultra settings with an FPS of 25-60 (25 cities/60 interiors/30 wilderness)...but that was only due to some tweaking (using mods that increased performance and allowed the user to run at ultra with little performance loss)...
So, other than the fact I don't have a fancy i7 and half of what I could have in RAM, I am looking to upgrade my video card with the intent of running GW2 at max-ish. I know the really top end recently came out but I'm not looking to lay down $600 bucks for the newest GTX 6XX series. I do however have my eye on the moderatly priced EVGA GTX 550 2GB edition...I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or other advice on what my new video card should be.
It has to be under $200...It has to have a good chance of running max (or close to) settings in GW2. I all about nVidia so it may take some persuading for me to consider ATI. I'm really looking for that bang for my buck that my current rig was back in 2010. Thank you in advance.
