    Default How to run rift with these specs?

    i7 950 20% OC

    Dual EVGA 570s

    12GB DDR3 1600 MHZ

    Dual SSD Raid 0

    Ultra? Or is it safe to put it all the way up past ultra? In order to run consistantly well during massive 50 man on 1 boss zergs, as well as at all other times, without causing my computer to explode....

    Thoughts?

    You need to try it out and see for yourself.

    They have been improving performance each beta. I have seen some people post awesome rig specs and have fps issues and others with lower end specs posting good results.

    I would guess you would be able to run at maximum settings, but that's all it is. A guess.

    Depends on your resolution. Are you running 1920x1080, 1920x1200, or 2560x1600? At any of the 1920/below resolutions your system will demolish the game at maxed settings (Ultra's about 2/3 of the way to max). At 2560x1600 you should run fluidly (50+ fps) during heavy action with that setup, assuming the SLI scaling is efficient.

    WOW is a much less demanding game in terms of graphical and CPU requirements than Rift. You can't simply compare "ultra to ultra" since they have far different visual quality and thus requirements.

    It's impossible to guess your performance when you don't provide the resolution you're playing at. That spec causes dramatic differences on its own.

    I have a 24 inch asus monitor running at 1080p so 1920 by 1080

    So max out all the settings? Supersamplering or whatever that mess is and everything?

    I would say you may not see silky-smooth (50-60fps) performance constantly if you enable supersampling as it is EXTREMELY demanding, but if you use the edge blur or no AA, you should see consistent minimums of 60+ fps during heavy action, assuming SLI scaling is working well, at your resolution. (At max settings). You'll probably see, under those circumstances, 80+ fps while just running around or during lighter action. I can't say for sure how you'd fare with SSAA... but probably very well still.

    What does supersampling do anyway? Will i see a huge difference or is it better to not enable it and just max everything else out and enjoy the godly FPS? This is my first good computer all my other ones were to ****ty for me to ever test out any kind of high end graphic option :P

    Supersampling basically renders the image at a much higher resolution, then downscales it, averaging the result as it scales. This results in a very crisp picture for edges, sometimes-slightly-crisper textures depending on the game, and a large performance loss. Personally I would assume you'll have a better experience between framerate and quality by going for AA off or edge smoothing, but it will boil down to your own preference once you try it. Either way you'll have an excellent time with Rift on your system .
