Good afternoon everyone,
So I've got a P-6831FX (specs here http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/gateway-p-6831fx/4507-3121_7-32822855.html).
I was under the impression that it would run FFXIV decently at low or mid-level settings. Now I'm trying the beta only to find out that it's barely playable, even at fully-lowered settings w/ quarter resolution (can't even read character names at that level the graphics are so distorted).
1) Was I correct in my initial assumption that my machine was enough?
2) What could be affecting my perforce this much when nothing is running in the background?
3) I noticed that in-game, my receiving is between 700 and 1000, but my sending is stable around 30-45. Could I just be having connection issues? :(
EDIT: The connection icon is perpetually yellow, dipping into the green for a few seconds once in a while.
Thank you for your time.
