Do you mean just run it, or run it on a high graphics setting? According to the system requirements I found online, yours should easily run it. Keep in mind that these are the "recommended" system specs, not the required.

* 500 MB free hard drive space
* Internet connection
And yes, the X700 is much better than the Radeon 9000, just for the record. It looks like it will be a breeze. You can probably get medium settings or medium-high even. But I don't have the game and haven't played it, so I don't really know.
ASUS A8N32 SLI-Deluxe, AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.8GHz, eVGA 8800GTS 320MB, 2GB Corsair XMS DDR400, 160GB WD HDD + 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10, AC Freezer 64 Pro, 700W OCZ GameXStream, NZXT Zero :D

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.

Your computer should easy run guild wars. Now if your having problems with grahpics or its shuting down, there are afew good things to check before playing your game. Check to see if your video card drivers are up-to-date. Now See what version of DirectX you have installed, make sure your internet router is not blocking any ports which GW needs to run. I had GW's running on my PC and it didnt have as much RAM as you do. Might of just been the crappy trial version you had.
