Hey fellow GW2 fans,
I'm planning on buying this PC w/ Monitor before New Year's Day: http://www.cyberpowe...om/saved/1EQYQ5

Around $1200 is my maximum price (with my 5% discount), but I was wondering how it will do in this game. Have I made any bottlenecking or dumb errors? Can I change anything to make it function better? I plan on overclocking.

Thanks for the help! (I don't know a whole lot about computers :P)

You have no operating system, the PSU is a piece of junk, the SSD is junk,

Thank you for the guidance. I looked up how the standard psu from cyberpower is, and I'm glad you warned me. I already have windows 8, and the ssd isn't my preference. However, I believe it will get my job accomplished :)

I too would suggest you get the Corsair CX600 instead of the "standard" 700watt.  600watts is more than enough for a single GTX-660 Ti and the CX600 is a quality unit.

I would suggest a larger SSD than 64Gig - at least 120Gig. With only 64 Gig, it becomes a much bigger hassle to move libraries, apps, etc, around to keep from filling the drive.
The Samsung 840 120Gig would be a good choice and only $33 dollars more.
