When I play diablo 3 on my computer, I get good FPS, but when I play rift, I am lucky to get 20fps in main cities. I don't know what could be causing this?

Specs are as is

-COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO
ASUS M5A97 AM3
XFX Double D HD-687A-ZDFC Radeon HD 6870
Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W
AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz


and is running on a m4 SSD. Is there an over-clock needed?

First try updating any drivers for the 6870 and try again.

If that doesn't help with RIFT, overclock your 8120. Faster clocked CPU's in mmorpg's help A TON.

Drivers are fully up-to-date.

What should be a target clock rate? Also, I think, but my MOBO overclocks automatically?

Manually overclock, google for FX guides.

What cooler do you have?

If it's good, aim for at least 4ghz and try again.

4ghz should be no problem for you.

welcome to the world of MMO's your gpu and your computer are fine. Graphically intensive areas of online gaming eg. Main cities have to draw each of the other people moving and jumping and other animations. This is so common and nothing to worry about. If you are struggling however overclock your gpu a tad.

Go for the CPU overclock.

I had a similar issue with WoW, processor Q9505, GPU 6870, playing in 1080p.

Overclocking the CPU from 2.8 to 3.2 GHz made a substantial difference; overclocking the 6870 to 1050 core / 1060 RAM only increased by a few frames a second.

Well, overclocking makes things almost worst. I manually overclocked to about 4ghz (which my mobo automatically does). I have had so many blue screens and random errors since I have overclocked.

This bugs the hell out of me. Is it because of the mother board? Should I go back to a 965? My old rig had a 955 and a 6850 and ran MUCH smoother and faster with NO errors or blue screens.... What should I upgrade or remove?

If you are encountering random errors and blue screens, I would think that you have pushed the overclock too far. Back it down! If this is an automatic overclock, turn it off.
