#2312623 Need help with a new config

Posted Quaker on 30 March 2014 - 02:47 PM

My 2 cents ...

The FX-6300 is not good in WvW. The FX-6350 is much better, but still not good. (I wouldn't call 20 fps playable). You would be better off to go for the FX-8350, if you want to stick with AMD. Best would be an Intel i5-4xxx

If you are using a 1920x1080 monitor, an R9 270 would be much better than the R7 260. The 260 would be ok if you are using something less, such as 1366x768.

The Samsung SSD prices fluctuate, so it may sometimes cost more, but it is faster than the Kingston.

500watts is ample for the power supply, even if you upgrade to an FX-8350 and an R9 270. Cheiftec seems to be mostly available outside of North America, and I'm not familiar with them. I'd suggest you read some reviews.

The case is a standard ATX mid-tower, so everything will fit easily.

#2202883 I just miss Guild Wars

Posted dimiguel on 17 May 2013 - 05:22 AM

I've tried so hard to like Guild Wars 2... I really have. But I've just come to terms with the fact it's not the game for me.

Am I the only one who misses Guild Wars and feels that Guild Wars 2 could have been something much bigger than what it is now?

#2196395 Is the April 30th Update "make or break"?

So really my question is this: If the April 30th update is not the type of changes and additions we hope for, do we just have to accept that GW2 is what it is and it may not be significantly changed?

Yes and No.

yes because GW2 is a different game than GW1 and may never be like its predecesor ever again.  so you must accept it in that aspect.


No because considering the amount of content we've received in just this first 8 months for free?  its naive to think ANet cant add more and more and more features.  i mean guild halls and player housing is coming, these things take time.

but is april 30th make or break?  maybe for you, but hardly for the rest of us.

#2179248 Whats the point in retrying for fractals?

It makes about as much sense as taking extra time driving around a parking lot looking for the closest spot, yet people still do it, because people generally don't make sense.

An i5 3570K @3.4GHz still outperforms the 4GHz AMD 8350 in gaming.

A 1200 W PSU is something you get if you plan on running three or four 670s, not one.  You can get a good 600W PSU and be fine.  Gold certified is also generally very expensive and not worth the extra cost, IMO.

A much cheaper cooler like the Xigmatek Gaia or Coolermaster Hyper 212 will work almost as well as that massive MT Doom.

If budget is not an issue, get a 256GB or at least 120GB SSD for a boot drive.

If you want to do it, go to Orr. Then gather a huge ball of undead. Then dodge once or twice. You're welcome.

Or play the game normally and get it in half an hour instead of half a minute.

#2077856 Is GW2 in trouble?

Posted Sephirox507 on 13 November 2012 - 10:53 PM

the game is not in trouble what is in trouble is the MMO community, raging through forums when the content has not even come out....

Now now fanboys
There went your credibility...

If you want GvG closer to what GW had, then that's a fine request.  But saying GW1 was about GvG and anyone who disagrees (despite the ample proof provided) makes you seem very akin to a certain bridge dwelling, club wielding creature who avoids the sun whole heartedly.

Being relatively new to the game I was rather shocked to find myself in a world where guilds kind of took a back seat. I was used to starting a new character in WoW and instantly getting spammed with people wanting their guild charter signed, and with people wanting me to join their guild. It is a bit of a bummer. It does make sense to me though that any really intense guild would try and stay in a game like WoW or Aion where the endgame content is very progress focused, and structured. Hopefully with the new content patches every month this will change.

Do you know why you have people spamming charter signing in Wow? Because you can't start your guild without having x signatures beforehand, while in GW2, you can make a guild with 2 clicks and just typing in the name for some low amount of money. In regards to guild recruitments.. I always see a few every day in various zones.

...Is this why after the first month, the maximum people logged on my 250 ppl guild was 4? And the maximum people I'd see on my 120-130 friendslist was 3? And of those 3, two were bots I reported and never got banned?

The fault lies in your own guild then... I have no idea how much max member we have, but we easily have 15+ every day while having a lot more on peak times... Also.. how the hell do you have 120-30 "friends" on your list? Personally I don't get everyone I ever see on that list but only people I prefer to play with and they are usually active as well...
