Will My Desktop Still Run This Game?

Hey everyone! Old timer with an old build below. Will this still play WvW these days? Anyone else running old setups? Been out of the PC builds for a long time. What most folks running 2021? Thanks!

X5675 x58 system OC 4.1GHz and maybe 4.5GHz
R9-390x GPU
32GB Ram ddr3 1600mhz


  • I'd imagine it would. Easy to find out.

  • Think you will be fine.

    The minimum requirements for the game are:
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz Core i3 or AMD Athlon 64 X2 or advanced. Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT or ATI X1900 or Intel HD 3000 or better (256MB of video RAM and shader model 3.0 or advanced) Memory: 4 GB RAM. Storage: 50 GB available HDD space.

    I'm running the game on a laptop from 2009. It was the only laptop I can afford. Gaming PCs are too much money.

    Also my laptop is i7 Intel core i7-2640 CPU @ 2.80GHz RAM 16 GB
    230GB HDD

    I dont even know what my graphics card is or how to find that information but all I know its Direct X 11 but it can run guild wars 2 just fine without lag and on normal not max graphics.

    It can run league of legends on max graphics without lag which I dont even know how since it only had a windows 10 download but I have it installed on a windows 7 laptop.

    "Old build"? According to these forums "old build" is one that doesn't even support DirectX 12. Don't worry your machine is perfectly capable of running this game.

    I built my wife a system to play with me out of parts I had laying around.

    Core 2 duo E8600 @3.33ghz
    EVGA Nforce 680i main board
    8 gigs ddr2 @ 1066mhz
    GeForce GTX 470
    Creative X-Fi fatality edition
    500 gig sata 3 ssd
    500gig nvme drive on a Silverstone ecm22 adapter
    Windows 7 Ultimate

    The game runs absolutely beautiful 55-70fps with everything set to medium at 1080 resolution.

    So your system should run this game even better than hers
