Just wanted to let everyone know that Systems Requirements Lab has added FFXIV to their list of games. I think their utility is a little less cryptic than SE's benchmark results.
You can find the site here.
Just follow their instructions for selecting the game (you may need to allow for their temporary download thing, don't worry, it's safe), and it'll produce a nice little data sheet telling you how your comp stacks up with the various requirements.
As a side note: Should your computer fail to meet the minimum specs, don't necessarily take that to mean that you're wholly incapable of running the game. My computer doesn't meet the minimum specs for video card (so I failed the test), but I was able to run the Beta at High settings with some minor unobtrusive lag. CYRI is a nice bit of software, but it's by no means perfect.
