Is there a benchmark?

I want to see if this game will run on my computer and how well. I don't really trust system requirements labs since many publishers list absurdly low requirements just to sell more copies... I want to see for myself if I can run the game before buying it.

Trust Xeeh and tell me your specs and I'll tell you an answer if you can run it.. and no there are no listed benchmarks for the game.

I know my pc can run this, my sister is hoping to play this too.

Anyone can tell me if she can run this on her pc? her specs are:

Intel core 2 quad cpu 2.5 ghz
nvidia geforce 9800 gtx Vcard

Yes, Probably medium and low mix, with shadows off, depends on resolution..

I'd say medium in the least, you may get more with better optimization, you can try to raise settings such as AA , which will give a cleaner look and it shouldn't effect your cpu none, since it's gpu based. Probably can do high in less crowded parts but you want medium for large scale events, WvW.

You have to take into account the cpu, that chart is inaccurate, that's basing it on a very strong cpu.

Put a 670 in a Core2Duo and watch you get maybe medium settings at best.

It'll run. But don't expect max-setting miracles because she's going to have to settle somewhere between 'balanced' and 'max performance' on the slider unless she's willing to deal with stuttering and frame-rate issues in complex environments.
