How can I get a higher frame rate in this game?

Hello,
I'm trying to achieve a higher frame rate in a game I'm playing. I reach 30 frames on max, but I don't like being anywhere under 60.
What part of my PC should I upgrade to get a higher frame rate and without lowering any of the graphic settings on this game?

Recommended for this game:
• OS: Windows 7 or Vista
• CPU: AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ or INTEL Core2 Duo E6750
• RAM: 4 GB or greater
• GPU: ATI Radeon HD 3870 or NVidia Geforce 8800GT


What I have:
Windows 7 Ultimate
AMD Phenom II x4
6.00 GBz RAM
Radeon HD5670

I've also tried overclocking my GPU. Didn't have an affect on frame rate.

  1. You will need to upgrade your GPU.
  2. What game is it?

    TERA Online. Not out in NA yet, playing the Japanese trial.

    You think so? Some say CPU, others say GPU. I can only afford to upgrade one or the other.
  5. Never heard of that game. Is it an MMO? MMO's tend to stress the CPU more.

    It is an MMO. :sweat:
  7. the cpu should be fine. what model is it? Anyways its a lot higher than the recommended.

    the 5670 is as powerful as the recommended but barely so it would be what you need to upgrade I would think.

    AMD Phenom II x4 945
  9. Yep a new GPU would be best.
  10. yea your cpu is a lot better than the recommended so you should have no problem with it. Best to get a gpu upgrade I would think.
  11. Does the fact that my fps doesn't change when I overclock my GPU say anything?
  12. Legit version of windows? Or the game is horribly coded, though mmo's tend to stress cpu's. Try overclocking your cpu, you will most likely see your fps increase.

    Does your 5670 have GDDR3 or GDDR5? And were you overclocking the memory or the core clock?

    Pretty sure its GDDR5, and yes.
  15. check the game forums. but Im pretty sure its your gpu.

    Forums are down because the site was recently remade. Also, the game isn't out in NA yet, so that's something else to consider.
  17. check your cpu and gpu ussage while playing the game.

    change the resolution down and up and note any changes in fps.
  18. If your framerate changes when you OC the GPU memory then the game is bandwidth limited. If it doesn't change when you OC the GPU Core, then its either crappy code or CPU limited.
  19. I second esrever your GPU is weak and maybe even below the recommended. The Phenom II X4 is about 3 times as powerful as the X2 6000+. I suggest an AMD HD7770 upgrade when it launches in the next 2 months. If you have the cash the 7850 should launch next month.

    Now you could try lowering the terrain draw distances as that makes a huge difference in many MMO's.

    When I'm on max settings CPU usage sits around 50%. Sometimes it drops to 45 and spikes to 70.
    As for my GPU, 80-99% activity according to AMD VISION Engine Control Center.

    When I switch to lowest possible settings, CPU usage falls to 30-45%. GPU activity, 30-50%

    I'm guessing its my GPU.
  21. yes looks to be your gpu.
  22. Stop playin MMOs and you will see life have better fps....
