    I have a C2D OC'd to 4Ghz w/ a 6950 2GB, shaders unlocked, stock clocks and run on ultra w/ shadows off at 1920x1080 w/ CCC 11.1a and a couple custom adjustments like toning down the ground clutter and such. I saw about 40-60fps running around with up to about 25 others around, drops to around 20-28ish with 50+ people in major events (eg. invasions/rifts).

    AMD released CCC 11.2 recently but many have said there's not much improvement over 11.1a

    I've seen some posts with issues trying to run crossfire so don't rely on that helping you if the fps isn't up to your standards, also you'd need to upgrade the PS. Many people have posted workarounds that solve some of the crossfire problems but those same solutions haven't worked for others.

    Since it's a Black Edition CPU you should be able to bump that CPU up over stock a bit. Many have posted how CPU frequency makes a big difference in Rift.

    Uh you have well beyond the minimum to run this game. You'll need more ram to run "properly" on Ultra settings. You have a slightly better Rig than mine atm (I'm using a 9600 GTX, older than dirt card) and I was still getting a solid 25-28 frames running on high.

    SURE! I ran the beta fine on a 4 year old Intel dual core (not HT) 4 gigs memory and a ATI 5830. Graphics set on High.

    If you are planning to order this rig, make a few changes before you order.

    1. Up the PSU to 750. This will give you some upgrading/overclocking room later. (I=V/R and W= V x I before you naysayers chime up).

    2. If you can swing it grab a 1 tb 7200 rpm drive for storage and an SSD for your boot partition. If not just grab the 1 tb 7200 drive and call it a day (I recommend Western Digital's Caviar Black [http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16822136284], but that is just me).

    3. Get memory with lower timings ( I.E. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231318).

    4. Save yourself 10 dollars and get a Hyper 212 plus ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103065 ). In my opinion this is the best heat-sink for the money at this price-point, and it has universal socket compatibility.
    CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 3.4 GHz RAM: 8 GB GSkill Ripjaw DDR3 1333 MOBO: Gigabyte GA-MA790GPT-UD3H Case: Cooler Master ATCS 840

    GPU: Crossfired Dual XFX ATI HD 5850 PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800 W modular PSU Storage: Western Digital Caviar black 1 TB x2 Raid 0

    Keyboard: Logitech G110 Mouse: Logitech G9x O.S.: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

    Good system. The Asrock AM3 board are ok, but known to have issue.
    Look at the MSi/Gigabyte 890GX or 890FX
    Ram look towards a better quality G.Skill/Corsair/Mushkin. 9-9-9-24/7-8-7-24 DDR3-1333/1600 1.5-1.65v
    CPU fine, get the CM 212+ Hyper Cooler.
    To me 21.5" LCD is small, look towards 23-24"
    The Corsair 650TX is more than fine to run 6950 or any other card later.
    Case is not so good for gaming, not the best for airflow. CM 690 II Advanced
    HDD is fine, Samsung is not the best choice. If you can afford an SSD, do it. If not, get a WD Black 1TB Sata6 for main, back-up WD 1TB or 2TB Green.

    There you go.

    the amount of ram is fine.
    I really enjoy the fact this topic has NOTHING to do about Rift, and it turned into a Rift fest.

    I'm just gonna report my own thread and be done with it.

    I have a 1 year old PC using Corsair H50 WELL WORTH THE MONEY http://www.corsair.com/cooling/hydro...pu-cooler.html

    Cheap liquid cooling solution- and I have never had a cooling issue- just have to clear the dust bunnies every so often.

    Case- I use Cool Master HAF,http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6606 can't beat it for air-flow; but it's almost too much... especially if you don't clearn so often (Bachelor paradise).

    Essentially- my PC is 'dead quiet' even when running at high load and high graphics.
