AMD Catalyst Control Center
I'm trying to get the right settings my AMD Control Center for Tera Online so that i can keep my FPS around 30. If i'm questing my fps stays in the 20s for the most part (it goes in the teens also sometimes) but when i'm in a major city it says in the teens or lower... I still want the game to look nice but I'd like to enjoy the game without lagging also. I have no idea what I'm doing in it. If anyone can help that'd be great. I have a 2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R7 200 Series (XFX Pine Group)

I'm using the (i think this is what your asking for) R7 240.
Well I had a look at Tera's system requirements and it looks like you exceed the recommended. The game must be very light on system usage because I was going to say that your graphics card is pretty lightduty. However on the site I used it pointed out that your CPU was the lowest common denominator, but it still exceeded the minimum.
What detail settings are you using? And have you tried to lower them?
Well when I do the recommended settings it puts me right in the middle of the bar which is a 4. I brought it down to 3 to make it run better. I don't really want to go down another notch only because it makes the graphics kinda bland in my opinion. But if you think I should then I really don't have a choice if it'll help my fps. I was just hoping there was another way to increase my fps without lowering my settings in game.
I am not a big fan of synthetic benchmarks, but they can be useful in distilling obvious problems. Try downloading 3Dmark and give us your Firestrike score. You should be scoring 1000-1100 range.
It is really hard to say because I have no personal experience with either the game or graphics card you have. I don't want to say it's because your graphics card is too weak if I don't know for sure. This is a benchmark that we can directly compare your score against a know good working system.
