the 560 Ti is good but at the edge of your price range.

the 6870/560 can be had for about $160 and be very good for their price.

Thanks for the info, I picked a GFX 560 TI up today.

My FPS are better, not outstanding though. In Rift I get about 50 FPS with settings on medium in an non populated area.

My Specs are

AMD Phenom II X2 550
8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz
1024MB GeForce GTX 560 Ti
ASUSTeK Computer INC. M4A785TD-V EVO

Should I be getting better FPS?

if your motherboard allows, you might be able to unlock your cpu to a quad core.

I've tried that, it's pretty easy to do, but I can't get windows to start once I do. It goes to the loading screen then restarts until I turn it off.
