Hey all, I'm looking at building a new computer specifically to play guild wars 2 on. Being able to WvW at a playable framerate is extremely important to me and I was looking for some feedback. I've been doing some research over the last couple days and I was wondering if an intel i5 is needed or if there are any other comparable AMD processors that could run WvW smoothly. I've heard that the FX-8350 is good but at that pricepoint wouldn't I be better of just getting an I5?
My original plan was to get the AMD A10 5800K and buy a cheap 2nd video card and run both of them at once but now i'm not sure it will be able to handle WvW and I don't want to invest in it if I can't play. It has decent single thread performance as far as AMD's go, which i've read is very important for WvW. heres the specs on it: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?...0K+APU&id=1446
I'm basically trying to build the cheapest computer I can that can comfortably play Guild wars 2 on low to medium settings, any thoughts?
