Can my computer run gw2 (sorry if wrong section didnt know which section to put it)
So I was thinking about buying Guild Wars 2 today since many of my friends have been suggesting it. Only problem is if my computer can run it. Lowest settings does not bother me just as long as it runs smoothly.
I have a hp pavilion dm3 with an integrated graphics card. I know it sucks I don't meet system reqs but I don't meet reqs for a lot of games that I can run smoothly such as the witcher.
Here are can you run it tests from the witcher and guild wars 2.
Well more important than your graphics card is your processor. GW2 is very processor intensive. And sadly I don't think your pc is going to have the ability with either one to play the game. If you want to know for sure ask on of your friends that has the game to copy it to an external drive (because it can be done with this game) and copy it to your pc (it will work just fine doing this I have done it myself) then see if or how it runs when your friend loggs into the game from your pc. (Note for Anet security he will have to logg into his Anet account as well to confirm access from your pc)
If the game plays in an ok manner then get it, if it doesn't, which I think is likely for you, I would look around for a low price desktop that has a bit more power that can run it. Also if you copy the game to your PC you won't have to Download it if you do get your own account, you'll just have to download any recent updates.
Well you never know with computers so you MAY be able to run it but I HIGHLY doubt it. Your CPU and GPU are lacking quite a bit and this game will only get more intensive as the time goes on. IF you played with the lowest settings, and had really low FPS, it might work but I personally wouldn't risk spending the money on the game when all signs point against it. I'm sorry man.
