    8gb RAM
    System: Windows 7 64bit

    That FPS sounds about right for that machine, you'd get slightly higher FPS with an Intel equivalent processor because the game prefers Intel over AMD but not a lot more.

    Honestly, probably not. I have the series below yours, and get about the same fps. Rift is highly CPU dependent.

    Dont think you can go much higher without a new motherboard. If you went the AMD FX route, can get 4.2ghz and overclock it, but your not going to see a ton more fps with that either. I hear some of the older i5's are the best rift CPU's because they handle single threading better or something like that.

    Not really I went from a 6770 to a 7770 and noticed only a few frames gain.

    A better processor would increase your FPS due to the games reliance on CPU, but it's not a huge increase unless you get something top end and even then it's a long shot

    My current system I use for Rift is:

    i5-4670 (3.4GHz)
    16GB 1600mhx memory
    AMD Radeon 7770 (2GB)

    and my FPS is roughly 35 to 45 in general spiking to about 70 and dipping below 30 in TB and raids on high settings with cloaks and shadows turned off.

    +1 on the shadows and cloaks. I run on ultra, with those 2 turned off, and generally about the same fps, with an FX8350 and an HD6950.

    Yeah cloaks and shadows are a huge resource hog, it's amazing how much difference turning them off can make.

    OP specs are not much different them mine, and some of the others have much better.
    I'm running
    e8500 core duo wolfdale 3.0ghz
    4gb ram
    radeon 6770

    I almost never have FPS issues in Rift tho, not at home right now so I can't check. Does Rift support Triple buffering? If it does I would have automatically enabled vSync and Triple buffering. I also always lower shadows a tad, and set to Fullscreen (mostly cause I hate windowed games).

    For Info on why vSync /w Triple buffering, should always be enabled.

    So took a look, Rift does not have triple buffering so no vSync enabled, using High settings tho not Ultra, and fullscreen, so Not sure. I'm kinda OCD about drivers and such you may want to go though and make sure everything is on latest version.
