Hey... so, before someone jumps down my throat for another "Can I run it?" thread,

I ran the check on Can You Run It? and happily, my laptop beats minimum specs, but I haven't see any recommended specs listed anywhere. Is minimum specs enough? (My laptop's a 2011 model, so..)

The official Guild Wars 2 site lists these as the minimum requirements:

Windows® XP Service Pack 2 or better • Intel® Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, Core i3, AMD Athlon 64 X2, or better • 2 GB RAM • NVIDIA® GeForce® 7800, ATI X1800, Intel HD 3000, or better (256MB of video RAM and shader model 3.0 or better) • 25 GB available HDD space • Broadband Internet connection • Keyboard and mouse

Note: Due to potential changes, system requirements may change over time and you may be

Well yeah, I knew all that. I don't doubt that I can run the game, but I'm curious as to why I haven't seen any recommended specs listed anywhere.

Disregard my last post. I didn't read yours close enough. xD

I did the CYRI test on my laptop and it failed the minimum specs because the embedded graphics only has 64MB dedicated with the rest (up to 1696MB) being dynamically allocated. I have a Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz processor and 4GB of RAM. I've played the game for a few hours using the "Balanced" video settings and didn't really experience any issues other than low FPS with everyone clogging the starting areas. I think you should be good to go. Things should only get better the closer the game gets to release since it's still being optimized.

Well uh, I'm not too well-versed in technobabble, but I'm happy that I should be good to go. I actually don't know too much about Guild Wars 2, but everything I've heard has been nothing but positive, so I'm eager to start learning more.

m3g, what's your graphics chip? I have an integrated chip and CYRI says there's only 128 MB of dedicated VRAM but do you think I'd be able to run it with the dynamic RAM also? I think my graphics processor is an intel GMA 4500M HD. All my other specs are fine.

Intel HD Graphics 3000

I think that you'd be able to run the game with the dynamic RAM.

Thank you. I wouldn't expect very high settings or 60 fps but I'd just be happy to be able to play.
