Will my computer be able to run Guild Wars 2 smoothly?

I've had this laptop for quite a while now. It runs smoothly when I'm doing normal things such as going on Facebook, Youtube, etc. Played a few games like Neverwinter and Tera and it runs best on low settings. This laptop overheats sometimes and it makes a loud fan noise.

Here are the specs:

System Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard
System Model: HP Pavilion g7 Notebook PC
BIOS: F.26
Processor: AMD A8-4500M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics (4 CPUs), ~1.9GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 5602MB RAM
Page File: 5800MB used, 5433MB available
Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS
DirectX Version: DirectX 11

So should I save up to buy a new laptop? If so, what are your recommendations? Something around $600-$800 will do.

  1. I doubt that will run GW2. It's a somehow very taxing game (particularly in WvW if you run in a zerg). I had a recent (2 yrs old) MSI gaming laptop and had to run the game at minimal settings (it did run smoothly tho).

    I've heard (and I'm no specialist on technical issue) that it's demanding on the CPU so if you choose a computer for that game in particular, don't cheap out on that component!

    Best of luck in your quest

    Hello, you will be able to play the game smoothly if you dont go crazy on the game settings, dont excpect it to look that good, but youll be able to play it, your specs are not that weak for a laptop, your quad core cpu helps, and the integrated gpu on the apu is better than a lot of integrated graphics. My opinion, get the game you'll be able to enjoy it.

    Something else, if you are a gamer and really like playing PC games, get anew PC, just a recommendation ;), with your current laptop you're not experiencing the beauty of gaming haha.
