    Default $2000 to blow on new rig

    I need two things 1. Possible parts for new $2000 rig, 2. People with high end rig who tested against this game in beta and their performance, CPU load etc

    Already have KVM, Case but need rest.

    *Below $2000 in total
    *Must be quiet so it doesn't sound like plane taking off while playing
    *Preferably parts from Newegg but other reliable third party vendor works as well
    *Only used for playing rift

    I'm an IT guy (Server/Network) but not desktop enthusiast so no need to skim out on techie detail, Thanks.

    My rank 3 system joo can sees it. Reduce/remove 2 monitors to temporarily remove Eyefinity to get it below your 2k mark. Add them back on later for uberness.

    Played beta 5 with a AMD 6970 and an nVidia 560Ti OC with the rig in my signature. 1920x1200 ultra settings and 2xAA. Got 30-45 in open areas, crowded rifts/invasions/warfronts low 20ís-high teens with the 6970, the 560Ti OC performed about 80% compared to the 6970.

    Beta 6 I had switched to a GTX 570 OC with a non reference cooler. I was getting 35-60 open areas bouncing between low 20ís - low 30ís in pvp/warfronts/rifts etc 1920x120 ultra AA (AA settings changed in settings menu for beta 6)

    I donít know if ATI cards got a boost for beta 6 or not, seemed to be a mix bag from what I noticed posted but didnít really pay much attention since I had switched to the 570. Game experience for me was was better with the 570, but they were different beta phases...

    I will say my 6970 with a reference cooler ran at 81-83c constantly, my gigabyte windforce 570 runs 61-69c in game. My case is very cool too, highly recommend it, or itís cousin RV02 with the same insides.

    The GPU is worked like crazy in this game 95-99%, cpu load is low...I think around the low 20% range.

    I would strongly suggest taking a look at this chart: http://tinyurl.com/falconguide

    I link everybody to this chart, it is very accurate and updated very often.

    Also, chances are you will be surprised by how much of that $2,000 you won't need to spend. The excellent and outstanding systems should be able to pump out everything this game is capable of, even in its current unoptimised state.

    If at first you don't succeed, threaten to quit unless it's nerfed.
