I would have thought getting this awesome GPU would let me max the graphics for this game Guild Wars 2 and Total War Rome 2. THe auto detect sets me at medium graphics. Is this normal? And if I set the graphics to max I shoot down to 20-30.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P

Well, I know that the i5 3350P isn't quite as good as the 3570K, but it is close.

That being said, Guild Wars 2 is extremely CPU bound. That might be why you are having framerate issues.

Rome 2 runs like crap on everything at the moment.
Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback

Really? The same is said about other MMOs too. Gah I should have bought a better CPU

Oh hey! I think youre the one who helped me put my PC together a few months back! But yeah I really like the game but the stuttering during the main menu and low graphics are kind of a turn off. :(

That game needs a few optimization patches, but yeah, it's a normal thing for MMOs to be CPU bound. :p
