When I ran the benchmark I scored around 2300 points. According to SE's standards that should be just around sub-standard:
[2000-2499] Slightly Low Performance
Capable of running the game, but may experience some slowdown. Adjust settings to improve performance.
I'd like to beef up my system a bit to improve it's capabilities but that may not be until well after FFXIV comes out. Here's my specs:
OS: Windows Vista (6.0) Home Premium Edition SP2
Motherboard: ASUS P5QL PRO
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (Wolfdale) 3.0GHz (Has not been overclocked yet. Using stock cooler)
Memory: 4GB DDR2 667 RAM (2x 1GB Corsair + 2GB Generic memory)
Video: BFG Tech NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT OC 512MB GDDR3 256-bit(DirectX 11.0) (Core 675MHz, Shader 1700MHz, Memory 915MHz)
HDD: Western Digital Caviar 250GB SATA drive
Power Supply: 500W Rosewell
Case: Rosewell Conquerer
Two key pieces I know I need to replace is the memory and maybe the video card. 9600GT seems to be the recommended card but I think I can do better. Anyway what do you guys think?
EDIT: Found the box for my video card, it's a BFG Tech GeForce 9600GT OC version. From what my brother told me when he sold it to me the card it's an overclocked version of the 9600GT.
