Planetside 2 is still a bit unoptimized. People with 680's and i7s have only 30FPS.
The games also doesn't like AMD CPU's. There's nothing wrong with your rig. It's just the way the game is optimized. Try updating Windows and your GPU driver to 12.11 to get better performance.
thanks for the reply, i am unsatisfied with other things, such as render times, takes 2 hours to render out a clip of 15 minutes.
would i see a noticable difference from upgrading to a AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition?
