Thank you, I'm new to pc gaming
None of these are very optimal for the price, and AMD FX is a poor choice for gaming PC. You need to get an Intel i3 / i5 based build with HD 6870 / GTX 560.

So something more along the lines of this

Something like it, but still not optimal (GTX 550 Ti is a bad card)

would a AMD Radeon HD 6670/ intel core i5 build work?
I recommend you customize it directly from sites like CyberPowerPC / iBuyPower / etc rather than buying these.

See this guide:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6293460070

Then customize a similar PC from there.

If you let me know your budget, I can do that for you too.
You'll be able to run GW2 on any of those PCs on high without lags. During beta which was said but developpers to be not optimized properly, I was running GW2 on medium without lags on my Lenovo Y570 laptop.

my budget if possible is 500-600 dollars, if necessary maybe a little over 600.
Then I recommend that you build your own, budget is too little for optimal pre-built PC.

Would you mind making a list of reasonable parts to buy for a build between $500-$600 that would be capable of running gw2?

not worried about operating system

$560

Features:

i3-2120 on B75 motherboard
8GB DDR3-1600 RAM (2x 4GB)
GeForce GTX 560
I see where u r going with this, most games anyways run on dual cores. Maybe there are a few exceptions.

I'm interested in this, and will buy the parts

Now say i wanted to upgrade my processor down the line? i could easily go with an i5 on that mother board right?
Yes. B75 will support Ivy Bridge or Sandy Bridge i5. But it won't support Haswell, but that's always been the case with Intel -- that they require you to swap out the motherboard with every new Tick release (once every 2 years).

Note B75 does not support overclocking.

I will keep that in mind, this build should last me quite some time, before upgrading. Most games i play are dual core required anyway. Like Sc2, tf2.

Thanks for the help
could i change the case on this build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/eufa

to this case

ya i just bought the haf, but can you show me which i5 i should buy im thinking about just doing the i5 right off the bat. What one will work with my processor?
Since you are going with B75, i5-3450
guild wars 2 is designed to run on a wide variety of machines. Anything with an intel 3000 HD can run it apparently.
