Hello to all,
I wanted to share an recent experience and I wanted some opinions too.
My PC specs are Intel i7 4790k. 16 GB RAM, AMD Radeon Sapphire Fury Nitro OC+ at 1920x1200 resolution monitor. My average fps all around the world are around 30-40 with no Antialiasing and Native Render Sampling. All the other settings are maxed out. When I waypoint to Mistlock Sanctuary, Lion's Arc or I am in the middle of a boss fight in open world, my fps go down to 7-12.
Recently a real life friend, tried out gw2. His system is i7 2600k, 8 GB RAM, NVidia Asus GTX 1060 with monitor that supports 1920x1080. He plays the game at Best Appearance, Settings.
What makes me wonder, is that when we are questing in open world, when I have 25-35 fps, he has 120-130 and in cities when I have 7-12 fps, he has 30-40.
Even though I have a most updated PC than him, I really do not know what I am doing wrong and if the problem is my graphic card or my CPU. I came in here to ask for your opinion as I am seriously considering to buy new graphic card or CPU but I do not know which pc part to blame?
