Graphics settings, whats "best"?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so have watched a few vids and sych on what things should be set but figured i would ask here as well...what are the most optimal settings, of course based on my pc, which is as follows:

Scorptec Coldsnap GTX 1650 Gaming PC, AMD Ryzen 5 5600 6 Core, AMD B550 Chipset, GeForce GTX 1650 4GB, 16GB 3200MHz RAM, 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD, 2TB HDD, SilverStone Precision PS15 Case, 550W PSU

Thanks!¬† ūüėČ

With that GPU you can't really push much. You would also definitely need to upgrade your PSU if you wanted to get a better one. That's a 720p/low 1080p card. Shadows, Reflections, and Character model limit are your big performance sinks. I would put character model limit on low or medium, reflections on none, and shadows on medium. Maybe limit Effect LOD. Everything else you could probably keep on high or medium.

Depends on your monitor. I have an older graphic card than you, but with my LG UltraGear 27GP850P-B monitor on 2560x1440 I can play the game with all settings on highest. It's fast and the graphics are wonderful.

Unless you are hiding an entire gaming rig inside your monitor, it make absolutely no difference.

TL;DR of GW2 settings - set shadows to low (blob shadows for characters instead of dynamic), set character model limit to medium or low.  These settings are what absolutely tank your fps in more intense scenarios if set higher (WvW, boss fights take your pick). The rest depends just how bad of a graphics card you have, many settings are like 0-3 fps difference low to high. Just experiment as needed.
