Hey folks,

I've checked the multiple "build" forums but wanted to solicit some advice on purchasing an out of box setup that will effectively run FFXIV. With either of the the below systems run the game at relatively high quality/rate? Two options are listed. Any input you can provide if appreciated. Thank you!


The first is my preference:

Processor Type:Intel Core i7 860 Processor `
Speed: 2.8GHz
Processor Cores: 4 RAM 8 GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM (Exp. To 16 GB)
Hard Drive Capacity: 1 TB Hard Drive Speed
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5770
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

This one is my alternate ($350 cheaper):

Processor Type: Intel Core i5 650 Processor
Speed: 3.2 GHz
Processor Cores: 2 RAM 4 x 2 GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM (Exp. To 16 GB)
Hard Drive Capacity: 1 TB Hard Drive Speed
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5570
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Thanks again for your time an effort. I'm aware of how many of these "build" messages are on the forum, however after working through them all I didn't see specifics on purchases systems. See you September 22nd!

Hey guys (Yes, I'm bumping this thread rather than start a new one)

I'm looking to come over to FF14 soon. I was waiting on the PS3 launch as i'll prob play mostly on that but I'd like to have my PC run the game also. I'm not looking for high specs on the PC, it's only really to have it as a back up or for if my friend comes over and wants to log on to check his account.

My PC atm has these poor specs:
*cough* It's a dell *cough*

Pentium 4 CPU 3GHz
2.99Ghz, 2GB RAM
Radeon X300 SE 128MB lolz

Is it worthwhile buying a new graphics card? like i said i'm not after high specs just minimal running.

cheers :)

I don't think that system remotely meets even the most minimum of minimum standards, graphics card or no. :(

to the OP:

i highly recomend getting the first PC you have there if you want to play the game on some decent settings. that second PC looks like rubish and for only 350$ more the other pc is a much better deal.

of course like all PC enthusiasts, i recomend building your own. you can make a very good system for alot cheaper than you would pay at a computer store.

Build your own.

i7 (any is fine)
GTX480 or 570
750w PSU
6g tri-channel ( I like Adata)
MoBo for above hardware
320gb HD is fine (7200 is a good speed)
Nice open and airy case (dont try to stuff it in a tiny one, you'll regret it)

I guarantee you can buy all that for the same price as the premade you posted. It is so worth it and once you build one you'll always be able to upgrade your own in the future instead of getting ripped off. Some people say "well I'd rather pay to have it built for me". It literally takes maybe an hour to build a pc. If an hour of your time is not worth $200-400 then you're either lazy or rich. Some are both.
