    Default Rift - Max graphic specs.

    Hey peeps.

    Wondering if anyone can recommend computer specs to play this game at max graphics at a comfortable 30fps + Or, if you personally are running the game at 30fps+, if you can tell me your specs please. I'm going to invest into a new gaming computer, so i want to know what people are using to get there best gaming experience.

    Cheers.

    Buying this game made me realize my machine needed a good update, I suggest looking at CyberPower's Black Pearl.

    It's the top rated PC gaming machine of 2011 on toptenreviews.com, and runs 1299$

    On the CyberPower website, it also shows previously tested FPS's with certain games at certain settings, something that I've never seen before, that sold me on it.

    I'm able to keep a constant 60 FPS (Vsynch) running the game with all settings maxed in 1920 x 1080 (except for when I'm at a rift with a million people there casting spells and enemies everywhere, then I drop to 48-52 typically.)

    Running an i7-2600K, 4gb of DDR3, and a pair of GTX560's. Game is as smooth as butter.

    Have you tried without Vsync to see how high you get? Was there any screen tearing? I ask completely out of curiosity as my computer only pumps out 60+ FPS if I'm using the low-quality renderer and staring at the sky.

    What do you have your i7-2600k clocked at? I've read it's supposed to be a beast at over-clocking.

    I can consistently get between 35-45 FPS and I have every setting turned all the way up EXCEPT Shadows(Completely Turned off) & Antialias is turned to the middle option(turning AA on all the way takes about a 8-10 FPS hit). I DO however use AMD Fusion which may/may not attribute to a few more FPS here and there.

    Here is the gear:
    Mid-range board=MSI MS-7623
    3.2Ghz AMD Phenom II Quadcore
    4gb of DDR3
    2 x 64mb cache 7200rpm 1TB WD HD's in a SATA RAID Stripe set
    ATI HD 5770 1GB
    SB sound card

    I bought the mobo/proc as a combo(wish now I had gone for something nicer) then later bought vidcard & some gaming peripherals.

    Just hardware I spent approximately $650

    Hope this helps!

    Edit to add that I play in windowed Fullscreen at 1920 x 1080

    I never tried it without Vsync actually, but during the next beta phase I sure will and see what I get. I have the 2600k clocked at 4.7ghz currently. The thing is a beast.

    Sounds good for the most part. I say that because I'm not a huge fan of creative sound cards, hehe.

    Also, if going with the GTX 560, I highly recommend the MSI N560GTX. I'm running two of them in my system and they stay amazingly quiet and cool, and they are good overclockers. Or the EVGA model of the card, EVGA has great warranties and support. Best of luck with the build!

    I run on the stock "ultra" setting with particle effects turned up slightly, full shadows, and edge-smoothing... 30+ FPS
    edit - also with V-sync

    2x 9800 GT in SLI
    Q6600 2.4 quad core
    4 GB DDR3 RAM

    Got this computer a couple of years ago and my specs aren't nearly as impressive as they used to be. I'm pretty happy with the performance though.

    2gigs DDR2, sh!tty dual core CPU and 1gig dedi GFX, I get 50-60fps on the default settings. Unless, like another person said, at a Rift with a bazillion people, where I normally drop down to about 25-35fps. D:

    Are you playing on a laptop as well? My specs are nearly identical, although I have 4 gigs of ram. 2.2 dual core. I was getting about ~20 on default settings. Wondering what you did differently.

    My system specs are an I5 2.8GHz Quad core, 4 GB of ram, WD BLACK 1 TB harddrive, EVGA GTX275, max settings easy 30+ FPS. Averages 60(vsync, my lcd doesn't draw faster than that anyway)

    Q9450 2.66 ghz quad core, 9800 gx2, 4gb ddr3 were my specs for last beta, running 50-90 fps on ultra with shadows off for solo questing, dipped as low as mid 20s during huge invasions.

    New build arrived a few days ago, i7-950 @ 3.2 ghz, evga GTX 580, corsair xms3 6 gb ddr3 1600 -- can't test til next beta though obviously, hope I didn't downgrade by upgrading though cause my performance was pretty decent on the 3 year old box.
