Need a PC build to plat Planetside 2

As the title says I'm in need of a build that can play planetside 2 in Ultra settings. I have no experience in computer components so please bless me with your expertise! My budget is upto $1000 USD thanks!

My advice would be to buy one - but $1000 may just suffice for the Graphics cards.

But if you really want to build, start with an AMD CPU and mobo. Much ckeaper than Intel - because your budget is tight. For 'ultra' you'll have to pay ultra.

Give these guys a go with your budget you can make up a system that will fit your needs i doubt you need something super powerful for that game http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/

I would suggest for the GPU R9 280X or 780SC OR CLASSIFIED

CPU AMD FX8320 / 8gb Corsair Vengeance 1866

Samsung Evo 256 GB SSD 1TB Western Digital caviar green

700 watt corsair HX series PSU

Thermaltake water 2.0 professional for CPU cooling

Case that is up to you MB i would go with Sabertooth r 2.0 for the FX CHIP

THIS IS A SMOOTH POWERFUL BUILD WHAT EVER ELSE YOU NEED ADD IT

Actually you beat me to suggesting AMD which you are spot on and no you didn't miss anything Wolfgang you are on target as usual there are 3 different Sabertooths for AMD 1st gen 2nd gen R2.0 and 3rd gen with PCI-E 3.0

The price is around 189.00 to 200.00 much cheaper then the Intel Armored version

Thanks for the specs. Those I saw but did not think that they were it. I need not know what's NOT in it, but what is - e.g. all the ports.

Well, if they sell their stuff that way, I guess it is good enough.

It's pretty good for what they threw together and it's a 4770k so i mean if he has a extra 300.00 he can lock that in and call it a day

PlanetSide 2 FPS Issues
I recently acquired PlanetSide 2 from Steam and am having a lot of lag while playing it even on the lowest graphics settings (getting around 15-25 FPS). Occasionally I get lag spikes which take it down to between 5 and 10 FPS for around 30 seconds. My graphics card is an NVidia 9800 GTX+ which is...

Check specs on my profile... Apparently there is some way to reduce lag too, anyone know how (no obvious: "video settings set everything to low" kind of answer please.)

I was playing planetside 2 and getting into the middle of the battle, when things started to get a little choppy. I looked at my performance and this was there... is this normal while running on a Dell Studio 1555 laptop? Thanks, Brennan
