Sure, better chance than any, but you're going overkill for not a lot of gain.

32GB of ram.. no. Save yourself $260 and at least drop to 16gb.. Unless you like to churn out drawings in autocad whilst you photoshop, listen to music, have 15 browsers open and playing Guild Wars 2, I hardly seeing you exceed even 8gb of ram.

i7-3820? Why? You could spend more or less $1000 less and achieve barely any worse performance.

I do plan on running a lot of programs at once. I hate closing and reopening, if i can leave them on and not hinder my fps performance.
I will be much happier.

You don't need all that. Alot of it is overkill.

Im using i5-3570k, GTX 670 2gb, 240gb ssd, 1tb hdd, 8gb ram, 750w psu, ASUS P8Z77-V motherboard, SPIRE GEMINI REV.3-THERMAX twin fan cpu cooler, decent cooling case with 5 fitted fans. Nothing is overclocked, if you plan on overclocking ( it is not needed for any games ) then you will need liquid cooling.

Has really good temps and runs gw2 on everything maxed/ultra, supersampling, 1920x1080, 60fps nps using a 24" HD monitor.

I always have low temps and it barely uses any resources up when playing GW2.

Tbh even what im using is overkill for gw2. You can easily save yourself hundreds on dollars there...

I have a first gen cheapass Core i5 (750) on 4gb ram with a GTX670. I run GW2 on max settings.

As others have said, that's some serious overkill.

Now if you ask "Can this play GW2 super-smooth at 200fps+ in WvW at 1080p res" then you need to slap another $1K onto it. And yet another $1K if you actually want a monitor or two good enough to warrant such a setup.

WvW will slow down to a crawl no matter what righ you have in intense zergs. Okay, not necessarily to a crawl, but i have yet to see a rig pass the ~30fps mark in huge WvW zergs.

I am in the process of upgrading my pc atm. Right now I have: fx 8350, radeon 6850, 8 gb ram, asrock 970, 630w psu. I play on high (or else I get a gpu bottleneck) and the lowest I have ever dipped was to 19 fps in wvwvw during the Halloween festival... This is with everything at stock. Now, once Christmas rolls around and I get my mobo and ram, and slap in my new gpu (waiting till Christmas to put it all together, I have already purchased my gpu), I suspect those number will increase even when playing on ultra. My new set up will be: fx 8350, radeon 7950, 16 gb ram, asrock fatal1ty professional, 630w psu. With a slight oc to the fx 8350, maybe up to 4.4 ghz, I should never dip below 23-25 on ultra with a higher res.... amd ftw

It's possible, but, lol, GL affording the setup to do it.   Also, you have to use all sorts of workarounds to make it so that the crap client decides it's ok to use hardware effectively.   Once you offload GW2 across 20+ cores, things smooth out, lol

Actually he will still have ~15-20 FPS in big wvwvw zerg fights with his GPU running at 10% load only :P

I got a little better setup and i don't see it as overkill until GW2 actually makes a right use of it. Reflections don't use GPU at all yet eat away ~10 FPS for watever reason.
