As for head start, be at your computer at 11pm CST friday night if you want to get in and get your name reserved, Headstart was originally slated for 2am CST but they mentioned that they may open it up 3 hours prior at 11pm. gogogogo!
I've got some great names I don't wanna lose so I'm filling up my slots with my 5 top professions I've decided on. I know I'll end up buying more slots plus many other things later down the line. I always have one of each profession.

I'm turning my phone off and locking the door. Wish I could talk the pharmacy I work for into a couple Adderall .

Just updated OP with thread info. I think adding account/toon names (after creation of course) would be a good idea.

Any objections???

I'll report back when we can get in. That said... I have nearly talked myself into picking up a second card and xfire'ing it. The CPU is not a bottle neck for either of us. Then mine will be twice as good as yours.

I ran Shift 2 with AA on and everything maxed and was running 33 FPS on a single card that has been mildly overclocked.

I'm jealous. I'm running a dual core athlon 2.8 mhz, nvidia 9600 gt, 150 gig raptor w/ 8g of memory. All displayed on a 19" LCD.

Been a couple years since I built me a new system, yup it's time.

I've always been a loyal AMD user but I think Intel is cleaning up the market. I'm switching, bye bye AMD.

What's the deal with this "headstart" that's been mentioned a couple times?

From the FAQ:

Quote:
Headstart Access will begin for those who pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 three days before release, on August 25, 2012. Headstart Access will begin on August 27, 2012, for those who pre-ordered the game.
It just means you get to start playing early if you pre-purchase or pre-order. Otherwise, you have to wait until the August 28 release date to start playing.

Anyone else buy the CE version and did you get your "practice CE" items on one of the stress tests?

Got a 1000pt influence bonus for the guild, 3000pvp pts, a miniture, and nice trophey apparel item with stats across the board and an instance access to storage.

With all the time I pull in GW1 to complete my Hall of Monuments along with the CE bonus's, I'm gonna be loaded right out of the gate.

I ran Shift 2 with AA on and everything maxed and was running 33 FPS on a single card that has been mildly overclocked.

I actually have the money sitting in my paypal to order my second gtx 670 for SLI but they are out of stock on newegg.

I did however see on the official arenanet post about graphics cards that ATI cards in general where getting better framerates as compared to the nvidia counterparts of similar 'power' . Im sure it has to do with exactly how the graphics are being handled. Either way im || this close to pulling the trigger on my 2nd 670, or my 120hz monitor. Decisions decisions.

As for headstart. My vacation starts when I leave work tonight, and goes until wed. SO I have all day tommorrow to get ready, sleep, then get up and play all night, and for the next few days. Im gonna stock up on foods and drinks and not come out until the sun burns me like a vampire~


YAKS BEND PEOPLE!

On the topic of names/account names, I am more than willing to share mine once the game gets going.

I just got the regular digital download pre-purchase, but it did come with a single item, and everyone recieved any pre-order items during the 1 hour stress test yesterday, as well as the previous 4 hour one on tuesday. They are pretty much ready to rock. RUmor is that yesterdays stress test was very close to the final build since all of the areas where actually open instead of cordoned off.
