If you can build it yourself something along the lines of should be able to do medium in gw2.
CPU: AMD FX-6300
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212+, or EVO, or above if wanted
Motherboard: Any 970 / 990FX motherboard, recommending great OC board
RAM: Any 2 x 4GB RAM while keeping my notes (DDR3-1600)
Graphics: Radeon HD 7850 2GB
Power Supply: ~500W rated 80 Plus Bronze certified power supply
SSD: Optional, recommending 120/128GB budget SSDs
Hard Drive: Cheap 1TB drive
DVD Drive: Cheap DVD burner
Case: CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer or similar mid-tower case with at least 2 fans
This is from this thread, and if you take out the SSD you will be under $700.
Give it a look if this build is over your budget.
Not certain you will be able to get better than medium on a $700 budget though. My pc is in the $1000 range and is ok at high, but that's mostly because gw2 isn't the best optimized game out there. Any other game should be fine though.
