Video Card for my system

Recommended Posts



My system Dell XPS-8900 , CPU i7-6700 3.4Ghz , 32 GB Ram . The current video card NVIDIA Geforce GTX 745 16GB year 2014 . The video performance is very bad with jerky/choppy stream. I learnt the better video for GW2 should be GeForce 8800 GT . I am confused because its date is on 2007 which is 7 years older than my GTX 745 . Please advise me some better video card. I am not techie guy. Thank you.

a GTX 745 is a workstation GPU, it's not a gaming GPU, GW2's minimum system requirement is NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 680 / AMD Radeon HD 7970

221% the performance difference

I'd suggest you get minimum a RTX2060 or RTX3060 or AMD equivalent, with some tweaking within the graphics settings you should be able to run mostly on medium

given it's a DELL business PC, I don't know how much you can upgrade it, you'd may run into the following issue regards to the power supply unit
* the psu does not have sufficient power rating for a dedicated GPU
* the psu does not have the necessary pci-e power cable(s) for the dedicated GPU
* DELL is using some kittenkittened proprietary connector(s) to supply power to motherboard that is incompatible with off the shelf psu if you need to replace it

not sure what you mean by that, the game initially came out at the aug 2012, comparing date of your computer to the date of a game's initial release dare does not mean much
* if your hardware is does not meet the minimum system requirement of the game, not matter how new it is it does not matter
* games are constantly evolving, meaning the system requirements to run the game will creep up as the years goes by
