Hey everyone,

I'm in the process of purchasing a new PC to run Guild Wars 2 in Ultra settings on. I'm thinking of getting the i5-3470 3.4 Ghz in combination with the GTX 660 Ti. I will also be installing GW2 on a 128GB SSD.

So, very simple, my question is: Will I be able to play the game fluently in every single situation? That really is my main goal and the sole reason of investing in a machine like this.

Thanks! :)

Short answer, No.
The game is still horribly optimized, you will be able to stay above 60fps for the most part, but in WvW and large zergs in open world, and even LA in some places, nope.  I have a 670 and a i5 2500k and I dip down to the 40's sometimes, specially in WvW because the game is, for whatever reason even after so long after release...(sigh), still very CPU bound.

Short answer: Yes

You may find that the game dips as low as 30 fps during WvW and large events, but that's still pretty fluid. PvE should be above 60 fps all the time. (If you have Vsync ON, you will get a steady 60 fps in most of PvE and a steady 30 fps in WvW, etc.)

P.s - Supersampling is not worth being concerned about. Just set it to 'native'.

High with supersampling turned off. If you want full ultra settings with supersampling aswell, get a gtx 670 and an i5-3570. I have zero perfermance issues with that. I use a 240gb SSD though.
