    I'd recommend you spend a bit more and look at some GTX 560 models.

    If I'm not mistaken no system out there can run it on "maxed out" settings at higher framerates. Pretty much everyone has to turn down some settings (I'd say try AA and shadows) to get playable...

    This is likely the problem. The game, last I played a few weeks ago, canceled now, isn't terribly optimized on the default Ultra settings. You kind of have to turn some thins down (such as AA and...

    Your graphics are fine. That's an AM2+ CPU, so, in theory, you could just get a more powerful CPU. However, the AMD line can't really compete with the Core i5 and i7. If you want you could wait a bit...

    There isn't one. That's just about the top CPU for socket 775. You can't 'upgrade' the CPU without doing a complete generational change and also changing the motherboard and ram.

    Unfortunately the only way to tell is to open the system and hope that there is a sticker that tells you. The total watts should be easy to find, but the amps may be more complex. There may be...

    I wouldn't recommend waiting for it unless you are in that about top 5% of people who want the absolute most powerful system regardless of cost, and are heavily into overclocking. The socket 2011...

    Your bloke is insane. Rift is only coded for DX9. Adding a forced DX9 command will accomplish nothing. Tuning settings down/off is going to be your only way to improve performance. (Though if you are...

    Lolwut? Previous tests showed something like less than a 5% difference on average between 1366 and 1156. Socket 1155 is an improvement on that.



    You are confusing "gaming" with "overclocking"....

    If dual GTX 580 and a socket 1366 Core i7 isn't enough it's EXTREMELY unlikely that throwing more power at the game will help. What you are seeing is likely the effect of poor optimization and no...

    I'd say go with the second. The higher res will be MUCH nicer when not gaming. And if the game can run at that res all the better. If not you can always turn it down. Also, Optimus will help with...

    You may not have much choice. A system that old may not have a strong enough power supply. You will need to check you have at least a 500w with about 26 amps. Also, an Nvidia 430 may imply you have a...

    The i5 with 1600x900 res would likely be the best pairing for an Nvidia 540m. (Its powerful enough for 1080, but then you have to be ok with 15-30 FPS at tweaked ultra settings. Better to go with...

    You are using an 8-pin PCIe power connector where needed, yes?

    Have you tried shutting down, switching back to the GTX 560 and seeing if it crashes too?
