Default Does my system need upgrading? If so which harddware?

Ugh... its been a long time since I've visited this forums Man...

Anyway, I built my PC about 3 years ago as many of you might remember with all the post I did asking for suggestions hehe.

But now, Guild Wars 2 is just right around the corner, 1 year possibly and I want to make sure that my system will fully run the game.

I think I need to upgrade my video card for sure. Bummer that thing cost a helluva arm and a leg.

I rarely play video games now on my PC... so I don't need the best of the best. But will my 8800GTS run GW2? It ran GW1 at 60 fps even in crowded cities. Though with the new engine running GW2, and better graphics, not sure if my PC is up to the task hehe.
