Link of the game I wish to run High quality settings on:

www.planetside2.com

Notes from OP:
- Must be an nVidia card
- Intel processor

Would be greatly recommended if anyone could do this for me, btw.
And in return, if you need something from me that's usually free (ie. need a subscriber, etc) then feel free to contact me about it.

I'm sorry and I don't mean to sound like a jerk when I say this but - Could you include a build that caters to Intel as a processor and nVidia as a Graphics card?

This game tailors more to that sort of rig due to whatever coding that hasn't been finely tweaked yet so AMD users who normally would get 100 FPS get reduce into 60 or 80.

Thanks!

Also, what would you like back in return?

With an Intel/Nvidia build you will need to go a little over.

I've been frustrated trying to get AMD hardware to run this game. Though the only hardware I've tried has been really cheap. Some people still say that the absolute HIGHEST AMD processors won't run this game well. Now they're definition of well is probably this "60+ fps in 500+ user battle." If you want to be able to play in big battles then I believe the only choice is Intel. Just to put these frame rates into perspective, all YouTube videos run at 30 FPS(not 60). Simply go watch a YouTube video and you'll see that 30 FPS is quite smooth. Most people say that they get around 40 FPS in big battles with an Intel processor. If you've been dealing with 0.1 - 1 FPS in these situations like I have then you can obviously see why I say "lol what?!" when people say they "struggle" to get 40. I understand that you want a monitor, harddrive, mouse, and keyboard for this setup to go with the performance parts, but I can show you the rig I'm going to build in a few months:

I just bought a radeon 7750 a few months ago and I plan to salvage it from my old setup to build this new one. Also DO NOT get a super expensive video card unless you need it for obvious reasons(120hz monitor, multiple monitors). I haven't tried this GPU with no CPU blockage, but I predict the result will be pretty good. I've ran this game on high(possibly ultra, can't remember) with this card. If you want I could go turn the game to ultra(besides textures, that's RAM not GPU intensive). Then report the frame rates when I have no CPU blockage(i.e. an empty facility on Amerish). A got this card for about $90 on ebay so it's defenitely something to consider. If you want an nVidia card(which I would recommend if you got the money) then go for the gtx 660. It should be able to run the game on ultra with the extra particle effects that you can get from nVidia cards in this game. Though to be honest, unless you spend $2000 for 2 GTX Titans then you won't be able to run this game on absolute maximum graphics. The shadows simply take too much power for any reasonable setup to run. Though the game should look pretty awesome with a gtx 660. Given this is all speculation. Though I seem to recall some youtuber having the gtx 660 and it running the game quite fast and good looking.
