This sounds a lot like a problem with your power supply. Often, an aging, insufficent, or otherwise faulty power supply will have difficulty providing the power demanded during a hardware-intensive game, so you may see shutdowns or restarts or BSoDs once the power supply's load reaches a certain point.
What other games have you tried? If they were likely to tax your hardware as much or more than GW2, chances are your PSU isn't at fault. But if they were just lightweight indie titles or something, the fact that they worked doesn't necessarily mean anything.
You can probably enjoy it, but ultimately, it's just World of Warcraft 2.0.
Of all the completely legitimate complaints that one can make about this game, this has got to be the weirdest accusation I've ever read.
For all its flaws, this game has basically nothing in common with World of Warcraft in any way remotely related to gameplay mechanics. If nothing else this game has certainly succeeded in distancing itself from the WoW formula better than any other MMO I've played.
The changes sounded pretty good until the part where you will have to choose a color when you purchase your tag. The tag color shouldn't be an extra "vanity" purchase, it should be a free feature that you can adjust on-the-fly to help coordinate your team. Maybe I'm being shortsighted, but this sounds like it defeats the purpose.

Hello, i recently started playng and i'm trying to learn the game as fast as possible so i can teach my friends ( who are realy bad at learning games) how to play . But I still have some questions
1. Should i invest in low level equipmet or i get it from quests/ random loot?
2. Talking about endgame gear i have clear the armor part with all the insignia/prefix that changes the stats etc... is this the same for weapons? I mean all the weapons of a certen tier have the same stats and the only thing that i need to see is the prefix? And should the weapon be of the same kind of the armor?
3. Is wvw only an endgame thing or i can play it also at lower levels? And if so what is the minimum level that i should be to not get destroyed ?
4. Last one: I'm currently playng an engineer(i know that is not the best profession to start with but i just love it ) could you advice me for a wvw focussed item build? I realy like this mode and i'd like to know a bit of what stats are most imprtant and that kind of thing.
1: It would be ideal to keep your gear within about 10 levels of your character while leveling. In general you shouldn't need to buy very much gear, but if you need to pick up a cheap piece here or there on the TP, its not the end of the word. Medium armor will be cheaper than heavy or light, because leather (via salvage) is cheap. Metal and cloth are relatively expensive at most levels.
2: Weapons work precisely the same as armor. "Berserker's" always means power major stat, precision & ferocity minor stats, no matter what item it is. All Berserker's items with level X and rarity Y have identical stats, those are the only variables. That applies to all items of all levels, not just endgame stuff.
3: WvW scales you up to 80 no matter what level you are. I assume as soon as you are out of your race's starting area, you can enter WvW. If you're just zerging around with a huge group I can't imagine your level means anything at all, though since you get your elite skill at level 30 that might be a good threshold. Since you unlock trait points by leveling, your power will increase at various intervals all the way up to 80, though. Edge of the Mists is a particularly good place to level and farm, and there's a few traits to unlock there as well.
4: I don't know a thing about engineers, but I'll just point out that zerg combat in WvW is mostly about spamming swiftness and AOEs to tag as many enemies as possible. If that's the sort of play you're doing, whatever you've got that fits those categories would be a good place to start. Hopefully someone else will chime in with some better/more specific advice.
My monitor screen resolution is 1680 x 1050 / 60 Hz ( do i also need to buy a better res. monitor?)
according to your suggestions could you please tell me if it would go over my budget please?
You don't "need" a new one unless you want it, its very much a matter of preference and your level of comfort with your current monitor. I don't think you'll fit a new 1920x1080 monitor within your budget alongside a video card, CPU, motherboard and RAM, though.
At 1680x1050 I think an R7 260 or 260X would be sufficient. If you intend to purchase a 1080p monitor later on, you may want to go with something a little faster, such as the R7 265 Quaker suggested.
