Post Machine upgrade for GW2

Hey everyone, this is a vaguely related post to GW2, basically the reason for my upgrade is primarily this game, but also in a more general sense for all games when i get round to playing a bit more.

I have a desktop thats about 5 years old that i was looking to upgrade with mostly new components to make it a mid range gaming PC as i currently play on a pretty shitty laptop, and its painful, to say the least.
So basically im looking to spend around £300 on the upgrade, and with that i was hopeing to get a decent processor, new graphics card, a new motherboard and some more ram. The hard drive should still be okay and the power supply may be an issue but i can sort that out afterwards if it isnt enough! So here goes, this is what i found and i'd appreciate some feedback on what you think, and possible suggestions to something else.

This is my more budget idea:

Heres my slightly less one:

This seems a bit of a bargain to me, and a few friends i asked said it would do the job just fine:

Graphics card (where i need most help):

This one seemed quite a lot but i was reccomended it by a IG mate who said it would be a worthy investment:

This oen is almost half the price of the other one, but i didn't know really how much"worse" it would be:


This one was also reccomended to me, seemed like a good idea, i think 8gb should suffice for me!

So please let me know what you all think, and i hope this section is alright to post in! any other thoughts on how you think this system will run GW2 are also appreicated.

Important for Games is a good graphic card.

Its a german page but you will see a good ranking. In my eyes: NO 7750 its a office card ^^

7850 is ok
Motherboard is a good choise (good company for long years)
Processor: the 6100 will be enough
Ram: is ok you could also take lower ones (1600 etc)

dont forget your power Supply, your 5 years old one is not good enough for it
