    I think they announced this some time ago, where a whole list (mostly Intel) graphics cards where incompatible with the game

    how the hell do they just suddenly make a graphics card incompatible that was compatible a month ago...grah this is why I hate pc gaming.

    Woah! I used to have ATI Radeon HD 4500 Series too (used it for BWE2), just switched to Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti a few weeks ago. But I didn't know about this... Where can I find the list of the incompatible graphics cards? Maybe my new one won't work at release. :(

    They said something about improving the engine and making it compatible with older graphics cards before release. I hope they sort this out, because otherwise they'll have lots of pissed customers.

    Anyway, a 550 Ti will surely run the game just fine on High.

    It did in BWE3, I just hope it's not on that list for some reason. D:

    It's one of the most common high-end gaming cards. Putting it on that list would be suicide.

  • BijouBijou BudapestPosts: 145Member

    Alright, thanks. I guess I'm just being paranoid, lol. I want everything to be perfect for release.

    Do you know what high end gaming cards are?  These have never been high end.

    I don't think it's that high-end, it was pretty cheap. xD I just want to play GW2, that's all.

    It should really be easy enough to work out that they mean "deemed not good enough" not "literally will not work with" is it actually stopping you from installing?

    Wait, what? I need a new graphics card....

    Do they let you pre-purchase the game and then they make it incompatible with your graphics card?

    No one knows what exactly high-end gaming cards are. However, I'd say anything that's good enough to play modern games on High is high-end.

    No, when they say incompatible what they really mean is below minimum specs. It will still be able to play the game, but the performance will be lower.

    If only we had some kind of system to indicate a cards power, or any kind of website where these things could be found... Are you high?

    Well, at least you now have time (and reason) to purchase new graphic card ;)

    In BWE3 my wife was playing using an Nvidia 8500 gt. Had some performance issues on lowest settings but still ran.

    Anyone looking to upgrade you can find cheap nvidia 460 that would do the trick.

    I think you misunderstood what I wrote. Let's use the 550 as an example. It's a 100-ish dollar card that's definitely a gaming card and can probably run modern games on High, if not maxed. So, is it a high-end gaming card? Well, I'd say it is, but some people think only truly expensive cards, like 670s or SLI setups, are high-end. Ultimately, the phrase "high-end gaming card" is poorly defined, so there's little point in arguing what is or isn't one.

    Nvidia naming conventions. The first number is the generation 6 being the most current. The second is the range. 550 is kind of mid range. I would buy an 460 / 560 or higher for gaming purposes.

    I ran the game on max with my 550ti just fine, I don't think it is incompatible

    just buy a good and cheap graphic card  like 550ti or 560 SC or TI or even gt 640 is worth the 100$ and can run the game just fine

    To use an analogy...

    "I just bought a rocket launcher, will it be able to kill a fly?"

    Yeah, you'll have no problems I think ;-)

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.
