What are the system requirements for Guild Wars 2?
The system requirements haven't been finalized, but just as with the original Guild Wars series, we're committed to creating a beautiful game that will play great on mid-range gaming PCs.
As long as you're not running multi monitors, your 6950 will be more than enough card. It's still a very powerful card.

BUT, if you really want to upgrade, at least go to a 7870. Otherwise you're just going backwards. And as mentioned before, I would wait a couple of months before making a purchase. Prices should come down a bit.
