AMD Phenom II X6 1605T
Nvidia GTX 550 TI
750 PSU
8gb ram
Windows 7 Home premium


The problem is most people who have my type of graphics say they are running 60fps-100fps.. The problem is Im only getting like 40-80 and when im in WZ/fleet its like 20 FPS.

I don't know about 60-100fps on a 550 Ti. That doesn't sound right. Anyway, AMD's chips don't seem to handle this game very well when compared to Intel's chips. That might be part of your problem.

I believe you have a six core processor so that shouldn't be whats holding you back. As for you video card, a 550 is a low-mid range card and is most likely the cause of your "low" fps.

Yeah regardless of brand, a 6core is beast mode...
why you went with the 550 makes me scratch my head though..
especially when the 560s are noticeably better and only $250

I have a AMD Phenom II x4 970, nvidia geforce gtx 560 ti, 8 gigs ram and windows 7 and 60-100 fps is what i get.


just asking, is the inside of you computer clean? the fans and vent holes can get plugged with dust and cause it to over heat which could cause loss of fps.
227 and counting

Well my processor does heat ALOT and it does make a loud noise when I turn my P/C on and play games.

I'm running a build that is quite similar to yours, and thus must comment that nothing seems out of place here.

AMD Phenom II X6 1055t
Radeon 5770 x 2
8gb RAM
700w PSU
7200RPM HDD

Note that though these phenoms are both hexacore parts, this game does not scale to six cores. Also, I have two 5770s. The 5770 is quite comparable to the 550ti, both are low-midrange GPUs. Though I have two in Crossfire, this game doesn't seem to support crossfire. (I actually get slightly higher fps when I disable crossfire, weirdly enough)

And ya, in most respects intel is just better. I only bought this AMD chip in late 2010 when I put this rig together because $200 for six cores is an awesome deal. Not unhappy with it by any means, but ya it won't match an i7-2700k and probably not even an i5-2500k except in games that can take advantage of all six cores. (Battlefield 3 runs beautifully)

Anyway, with all those specs I typically get around 45-60fps in planets, slightly better in flashpoints, and around 20fps in fleet.

You are about where you should be.

When I was running my AMD 955 X4 8gb ram EVGA 470 I was getting around 50-70fps but I built my new system Intel i5-2500 8gb ram and same video card for now until the 600 series comes out and I now get easily 80-100+ fps.

Intel has always produced better fps in MMO's than AMD,Dont get me wrong I have been an AMD user for years but this i5 is much smoother than my 955 was.Only reason I went intel is i gave my amd to my son and for an Intel i5-2500k from Microcenter was only $170 vs anything AMD had.

Edit:I dont use AA,dont feel its needed here

At least for the 1055t, the stock cooler it came with kept mine around 40 celsius when IDLE and howled like a banshee, very loud little bastard.

So I recently switched to the Hyper 212 Plus cooler, which is pretty cheap. My chip now idles around 28 celsius and even under load when playing battlefield 3 or crysis 2 never tops 40 degrees, which is what the stock cooler previously made the chip idle at lol.

It also runs waaaay quieter. Can barely hear it. As opposed to stock, which I could hear through my damn headphones.
