Guildwars 2? I dont think that will play on them cards lol?

I have no idea what cards better though.

I even think guildwars would struggle on your 5770, its supposed to be a demanding game.

Yup, I would get a dedicated GPU for guild wars, but my friend uses his 275GTX without any issues, so I dont see why you can't pick a GPU up second hand.

lol it plays it perfectly fine on my 5770, the HD 3650 played Age of Conan on high perfectly fine too, i think it would be ok with guild wars, i am just not sure if this on board is better than the 3650 or not.

I plan on buying a new card for myself soon, so will be putting my 5770 in her pc, but until then, this will have to do :p
