I'm curently working on building my PC , I have few goals :

This PC needs to run this game on maxed out  settings in :
1280x1024 - 1920x1080(meaning = best if I can run it on 1920x1080 or very close to it)

i5 2500k .. 3.8Ghz Turbo(right now I don't have any money to buy a cooler, but in a near future i will)
Asrock P67 Pro 3 (B3)
Ram :
Goodram CL9 1333mhz 4(later next 4)

+ OCZ zs 550w and Coolermaster Elite 430

I need to choose graphic card, it would be great if HD7700 TOP would run it, if not HD6870 perhaps or 560/550ti ~

Can I run it on maxed out settings (and can I run it with fraps? :P)

hd 6870, gtx 560 ti  or above if you want to max out the game @ 1080p. If you want to record in high quality as well you first need 2 hard drives, one to run the game and the other to record it and probably a better gpu as well, not 100% on this, but getting something in the lines of a hd 7850 would be a good idea for recording.

8gb ram would also be a very good idea, maybe more, if you want to do video editing.

cm hyper 212 evo is a solid and cheap air cpu cooler.

that thing about 2x hdd I know

When I'll be ready to record i'll use SSD (game+windows and programs) and hdd to record, however.

I'm looking for information if I need better gpu to record?

I ran the first few stress tests on a gtx 560, although with slightly stronger supporting hardware.  YOu should see at least 30-50 fps at near max (no supersample or vert sync)

My only tip would be to push for a bigger PSU,  I started out with trying to do a budget build and got a 500.   While that will be enough, i ended up limiting my future upgrades and Overclocking.  I'd say try to snag around a 700w to give you more future expansion comfort.

from what I know my friends i5 2500k overclocked to 4.6 and 7850 OC takes less than 3xx V at maximum.

1. HD7770 totaly maxed out with this config ? - is it enough for 1600x1200 or 1280x1024 cause right now I know that its not enough for 1920x1080

I don't want to overpaid, but what I want is a gpu which will use 90%, while playing in most critic kind of situation (I'd like to save as much $ as possible)

2. Does anyone know how much % of non-oc/oc'd i5 2500k this games uses in most critic situation like attacking the stronghold or smth.

3. (no supersample or vert sync) whats the diffrence for my eyesight, whether it's turned off/on?.

4. From what I saw Bandicam uses more CPU than Fraps, however it uses less gpu - so it's kinda good for me, if 2500k is not using every each mhz to run GW2.

Thanks guys,

I went for HD7850 Gigabyte OC edition 2gb, it 2500k with heatsink I successfully oc'd it to 4.7Ghz and I didn't saw less than 40fps on Zerg WvW with fraps turned on.
