In Topic: Need help on choosing a graphics card!

The CPU won't really affect what graphics settings you can turn on, that's almost entirely the responsibility of the video card. The CPU will still affect your framerate, but you usually cannot alleviate that by turning video options down.

WvW and PvE zerg content will still drag a bit, but either of the processors being talked about here should get you to 30 FPS or more in those situations. That's just an issue with the game engine that we all have to cope with.

Small group content (dungeons, sPvP, open world) should be 50-60+ FPS most of the time with a Core i5-3470 and Radeon HD 7770. And that's with mostly high settings at 1080p.

Thank you guys you have all provided me with useful info and that settles it for me the radeon hd 7770 is the card for me. Just one question I know its like asking what's better the Ferrari or the porcshe; over general playing etc which is better for 8+ hour gaming? Don't want the card to fizzle out :D So many questions sorry bout that, just want to get a better PC then my old Amd x64 dual core :)

The R7 250 and GTX 650 trade blows depending on which game is being benchmarked, so it may just come down to which games you play.  The R7 250X would be a big step up from either, but is probably more expensive, the same goes for the GTX 650Ti.

In a vacuum, I would get the R7 250 myself since it's newer technology etc...

After seeing that site myself I would recommend dropping down to an i5 3470 CPU and using the savings to get the HD 7770 GPU.  It would be a better gaming experience for you all around. :)
Hi the main game(s) I play are guild wars,guild wars 2,Skyrim,fall out new vegas,fallout 3,Oblivion and age of empires 3. The other question that I think will be beneficial for me is this; if I go for a HD 7770GPU and the downgrade in CPU to I5 3470 will guild wars 2 still be able to play medium settings for PVE,WvW and Dungeons with and average fps at 30-50? at the moment with my old rig I get any where from 7-25fps in all the above mentioned content

Where do you intend to buy? If you're planning to find something online, could you link us to the retailer? That would make it easier to find the best deal for that budget.

This guide is super useful, but keep in mind that their recommendations are based on the best performance available for each US price segment. Its probably still a good starting point, but its possible that some recommendations would be different in the UK market.

Hi, the site I'm using is this http://www.instorepc...k/hullcomputers , I've read that guide that Kaldemeo posted it has been very useful for me. I'm now considering on getting GTX650 as it is within my budget and a semi decent card

In Topic: Need help with the maths for runes for ranger plz

Thanks guys, I think for now I'll go with ruby and keep a hold of the runes I have stocked piled Since ruby and Scholar isn't that far apart

But hopefully once that patch hits Scholar will still be the meta :)

In Topic: Leaked Balance Patch Notes

Hey everyone,
I’m sure you have all been wondering whether the ‘Leaked Balance Patch notes’ we have all seen on Reddit are true.
I am here to say that they are not. It appears the poster has taken some of the notes that we have in this thread in an effort to make their own look more legitimate, and mashed them together with some imaginary notes. These are not real patch notes.
This is a reminder that when patch notes are posted by a source other than ArenaNet, they should not be trusted. Particularly in the context of a “leak.”
Thank you for understanding!
