- The CyberPowerPC Gamer Ultra 2098 – For the casual and low budgeted people
Price: Only $539
Processor: AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz 64 bit Quad-Core Processor- everyone needs quad-core
Memory: 8GB DDR3 1333- is suitable for just about any MMORPG
Hard Drive: 500GB SATA II 3.0Gb/s 7200RPM-will download at amazing speeds
Optical Drive: 24x DVD+/-R, +/-RW Dual Layer Drive-adequate for running a game off of a disc, although in this case I recommend running GW2 on the hard drive via Steam
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB- runs substantially well on medium to high settings
Audio Sound card: Integrated- provides average sound quality (you probably want to upgrade)
Gigabit Ethernet-the norm of connection
Power Supply: 500W-perfect unless you are thinking of upgrading graphics card or processor
Keyboard: Xtreme Gear USB Keyboard-looks cool and will impress the other gamers. (An added bundle item)
Mouse: Xtreme Gear USB Mouse- an added accessory that is nothing but average.
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit more affordable than windows 8, just as good for games
AZZA Orion Gaming Case- looks bland, but you do get what you pay for, and it’s perfect for those without much of a great budget
2. BUYPOWER Gamer Extreme NE751x Desktop PC- for the want-to-be and medium budgeted people
Price: an Incredible $1299
Processor: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz 64 bit Quad-Core Processor- Reliable because it is Intel and can be overclocked!
Memory: 16GB DDR3 1333- You can probably have 120 different internet tabs up streaming video and you will still be able to game.
Hard Drive: 2TB SATA III 7200RPM+120GB SATA III SSD- Combines a major capacity drive with a fast, sleek flash drive.
Optical Drive: 112x Blu Ray Combo Drive- Terrific drive for almost any type of media!
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB- Look at a 1080p screen and run high at 60fps.
Gigabit Ethernet- the standard internet connection port
Power Supply: 500W- If you want to upgrade in the future be sure to up the power supply to a sufficient amount such as 700Ws.
Operating System: Windows 8-Good for games, takes a little getting used to
IBuypower Chimera Inferno 4se Case- Looks hot because it literally has a flame across it! You can pretty much impress anyone with its swaying looks.
IBuypower Custom Liquid Cooling- This tells friends and family that you mean business when playing Guild Wars 2! It can keep the temperature down so that overheating does not occur.
3. Avatar Gaming PitBull Desktop PC- diffidently for the hardcore gamer or the guy who throws money away.
Processor: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 64 bit Eight-Core Processor- This processor is pretty much overkill and could potentially operate a lunar landing mission by its lonesome.(incredible!)
Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600- Open as many video streaming tabs and games as you want!
Hard Drive: 2TB SATA III 7200RPM+120GB SSD- Combines a major capacity drive with a fast, sleek flash drive.
Optical Drive: 24X DL DVD+/-RW Drive- right away I would upgrade to a blu-ray drive!
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB- run 1080p on ultra settings at 60fps.
Gigabit Ethernet- standard internet connection port
Power Supply: 850W-if you ever upgrade parts don’t worry about the power supply.
Operating System: Windows 8 64-bit-Same as before
Special Features: Liquid cooling system- keeping your system as cold as it can be.
Case-could be better, but has a window to see inside and much room to add expansions and other drives. If you have a better budget, you can go ahead and get yourself the Phantom NZXT case-my personal favorite :).
All of these computers are in the highest percentile of excellence and will run Guild Wars 2 at outrageous speeds, but as I stated before the more money you spend on quality parts and rigs the more enjoyable your gaming experience will be. All parts except for motherboards and cases can be found at newegg.com. Have fun and keep on gaming!
