So im about to buy my first gaming PC . I picked this one, and it isnt exaclty the best out there, but i think its the best for my budget.

Intel i7-3770 quad-core processor [3.4GHz, 8MB Shared Cache]

8GB DDR3 RAM

1TB HDD

1GB DDR3 AMD Radeon HD 7570

and beats audio.

What do you think?? Is it good for gaming? And more importantly, can it run guild wars 2 smoothly???

It's bad. That is not a "gaming" PC - unless the HD7570 is actually an HD7750. And even then it is very unbalanced.

You need to save about $100 dollars by getting an i5-3570(K) instead of the 3770, and putting that $100 towards a better video card, such as an HD7850.

Do you have any stock PCs that you suggest under $800 ??

What about Radeon HD 7670??

This one from Newegg might be a good fit: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16883229356

  • Intel Core i5 3570(3.40GHz)
  • 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity
  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 4GB
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

The card can play games like Skyrim, etc. so while it is a more budget friendly card it can still do what you want it to do. I am a computer programmer and know more about programming than PC's so someone else might have a better suggestion. I hope it helps.

Gack! GT-630 - no, no, no. You may as well just run the HD3000 in the CPU.

This would be better - an i5-3550 with an HD7750

Or, you could dance with the devil - the GTX-550 Ti is nice:

Build your own. It's really not that hard and you'll end up with a much better gaming PC.

Medion has some good pc's that can handle GW2 on high. I got an medion Akoya with a AMD Radeon HD7770, 3rd gen i7 and 3,6 Ghz.
And all that for 740 euro's.
