Prebuilt PC to run GW2
Posted 03 February 2013 - 08:14 AM
I have a feeling a few tech experts around here will remember me. 6 months ago I came explaining my predicament, having absolutely no money to get a gaming PC, but hoping to scrap some money together.
It appears my luck is beginning to change. 2 months ago I celebrated my 14th birthday, and I am now legally able to work. An ice cream shop in town has just started hiring, and my older sister is friends with the owner.
As a minor, I have to go through a bunch of processes before I can actually start working, but I'm picking up an application tomorrow. If my sister pulls the right strings, I'll hopefully have a part-time job to make money.
That being said, I'd be saving up for a gaming PC, something I've always wanted, but has been impossible due to my family's poverty. Assuming hoping I get the job, I'd be looking to buy a prebuilt gaming rig to run GW2 at maximum settings with good framerate.
I'm not stupid enough to get duped into buying an Alienware x51, (though they do look tempting,) and I don't even have the job yet, but if things go well and I do eventually have the money, what would you suggest? I'm definitely looking for a prebuilt, and the desired budget would be between 600-900 dollars. I could spend more, it's just that it would take me more weeks of saving.

If it's the US, then something like this:
You should be able to customize a similar config directly on iBuypower, Cyberpower, etc. I wouldn't go any lower than a GT-650 or HD7750 for graphics.

I also have speakers, a keyboard, and a mouse.
I live in the US.

That first one that Quaker linked to would be a good buy for GW2 at up to ~ 1440 x 900 or so resolution (on High Settings).

Thanks for the help. I'll probably make another final thread for a definitive purchase once I get the money. I'm picking up an application today... Wish me luck!
