Your Gfx card does not even perform upto the minimum spec cards recommende so there is your problem. Don't waste money on extra ram get a new gfx card!

Yeah i dont even think that card you have is for gaming...

Im running a very outdated GTX 260 and can run the game fine on min settings (aside fusang that wasnt doable)

Also the min settings look better than most games do on max.

Ignore people who advice you buying more RAM. You have 4 and that's more then enough even on Win7. Get yourself a good GPU, what you have is almost as bad as integreated GPUs.

I can only get 15fps and I was also reading that even players with GTX 670 are only getting 30fps, really Funcom needs to learn off there mistakes, never,ever set supper high system requirments for a sub based MMO, this alone is means death, Funcom and all MMO's for that matter sould  tweek the games to run in a range of 8 years of system hardware not the last year alone.

Upgrade problem solved, other wise stay at consoles i would say:)

Yeah, not necessary, the only thing the OP needs is a mid-end or better gfx card.

(I have 4gb ram myself and it's ok, it would probably have been better with more ram, but probably not too noticeable, and not worth it if you are on a budget)

Biggest things to turn down for performance are shadows and motion blur.

Yeah I turned everything on low, even ran it on dx9 and lowered Res. and at best I only get 15ish fps, I'm just going to have to buy a new GFX card, I needed onle anyways.

Yikes you only get like 15 fps?

I am playing the game on my laptop running ultra on Direct x9 and getting like 50+ FPS on direct x 11 like 29-34, my laptop is a MSI GT70 ONC my computer at home can run this game on Direct x11 with everything turned on to the max and get like 60-70 FPS , Super overclocked GTX 580 AMD 8150 eight core processor and 10 gigs of ram, np with running anything on that machine .

My system is anything but high end and i get decent 30 to 40 fps with my ATI 5770 with dx 11.

When my friend was over, he played it fine on my 6 year old pc.  I play flawlessly on my 1 year old sub $1k built pc.

That card you have is not going to let you play the game. I had the same cpu and 4gb of memory when i first enter the closed beta in december, but i have 2 ati4870 cards. Putting all graphic sliders to 2, in dx9 and playing at 1920x1200 i got around 28-30fps at that moment and xfire wasnt working

People seem to be hell bent on using el cheapo parts that are also outdated by years and complain about shit fps.

Your opinion is misguided.  AoC didn't make it big from a lot of other reasons.  The high end requirement for the ultra nice looking graphics is NOT one of them.  You could always tone the graphics down for AoC and disable shadows.

I can run TSW maxed out with the following spec

 

i7 2700k @ 4.5ghz

2 x ati 6850 (Please note i disable crossfire for TSW so jsut using 1 card)

8GB ram

Win 7 x64 on a SSD

TSW installed on a seagate 7200rpm drive thats a few years old..

 

So if my old ATI 6850 can handle this game maxed out then its not that bad..

 

Also its a good thing that PC games companies push the boat with hardware.. .we have been stuck in a rut for too long with games being held back graphics wise because of consoles...

Your GPU is terrible... Why not just get GFX 560 or 550 Ti (I've got 550Ti and runs games perfectly on high)...

And I'd recommend upgrading your RAM to DDR3 8 GB 1066 MHz (or faster, but below 1066mhz don't bother looking)

I would say that the 3850 is a reasonable requirement for a game in 2012

The check your graphics card widget for TSW is "sponsored by" NVidia, and it's in their best interests to tell people they need a better card to run the game. The widget will recommend a 560ti as standard (if memory serves) BUT the small print tells you that's to run everything on max. That small print is really important. 

Yes, OP you could use a graphics card upgrade, but you don't have to go and buy whatever card the widget told you to. 

It ran fine on my old GT 240 over the initial beta weekend, and even better once I turned shadows off. Sure it runs nice with a newer card (and no, my new card isn't a 560ti!), but isn't that true of everything?

Maybe I've played too much TSW of late, but I'd advise being cynical about a benchmarking program that's branded with a GPU manufacturer's logo. 

Believe nothing....

get 4 gigs more ram  :)

my system is midspecc too (i only have more ram and a better gfx) and i get between 20 and 40 fps.

 

also people forget that it's not JUST about speccs.

be sure your HDs are defragmented (gaming and OS HD especialy), that you have no unused stuff unning in the background, have enough of space free on all participating HDs and always be nice to your neighbor :)

It’s so funny, how people have such a vast difference in the way they view the same thing. I don’t even want to play a game if it doesn’t have super high requirements. I have a very limited income, but since my hobby is computer gaming, why bother if I have a crappy computer? I try to (as best as I can afford) keep my computer as bad to the bone as possible. Maybe they could release a online game called “Pong” for those people running a Commodore 64? Oh by the way, I’m a old dude that beta tested the first online game to start it all. Meridian 59.
I’m not contributing anything here, just throwing out my thoughts.

There's your problem. It's a pretty crappy card.

Turn off SSAO and Antialiasing though, and you should be fine. SSAO especially is a huge resource hog on such cards.
