As other people have said in the past, the benchmark isn't really that accurate but my case is so extreme that I though to let everyone know about it. While still trying to sort my new compter for FFXIV I tried the Beta on my old one because I really had nothing to loose. My experience was as follows.

I tried the benchmar at the loest setting and got an all mighty ~200 (yes 200, not 2000) but I was able to kind of play the game with the following specs.

-=-=-=-=-=-=- System Information -=-=-=-=-=-=-

Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.93GHz
Number of Processors Logical Core Count 1 Physical Core Count 1
Physical Memory 2047.297MB
Virtual Memory 2047.875MB
DirectX Version DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
Graphic Device(s) NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT

Alright, every CS too about 4 minutes to load and these where choppy as **** but I was still able to play.

Ingame I was probbalby doing something like 10, 20 FPS.

I had a similar problem as well, and the problem really lies in how detailed they made the game. If I was to continue to live (which at this point that is probably going to be a "no") then I would invest in a PS3 to play this. My computer is no chump by any standards, but even with the lowest settings possible I am still having massive problems with system lag (and this is from a system that runs crysis it at almost max settings and no lag).

SE has made several game play improvements, but in the end it's FFXI.2 and just isn't worth investing into a PS3 to play.
The majority always wins!

Sacris solemnis juncta sint gaudia,
et ex praecordiis sonent praeconia;
recedant vetera, nova sint omnia,
corda, voces, et opera.

Don't feel bad, my tower, for what it is, is a beast, and I am choppy and clunky at times. I think its just something they have to work out on their end.
