    Default Graphics cards....

    Hey, so I want to play rift on at least medium quality, with at least 40fps. But at the moment I can only run at low quality, with about 15-20fps. Here are my comp specs:
    intel i5 650 3.20ghz
    quad core
    4gb ram
    ATI Radeon 5450
    My screen resolution is 1600x900.
    So can anyone suggest the cheapest graphics card that could do what I want?
    Thanks

    I won't guarantee fps, but I'd say target the $150+ range, provided your power supply could handle it. Something like an AMD 6850 or Nvidia GTX 460 w/768 Meg.

    Be aware though that I hear ANY setting for shadows on ANY card cuts FPS by a huge chunk. You may not be able to get 40+ FPS without turning them off.

    Stick with NVidia - they seem to be getting the best performance for Rift (well NVidia cards just seem to have less issues with games in general lately)
    If you want to get healed in warfronts, follow the Covenant of Healing:
    1. Stay near your team. Healing spells have a 35m range and you're not the only one who needs healing.
    2. Stay in sight.
    3. Protect your healers.
    4. Be respectful. Telling people they suck will not make them better players or want to help you more.
