Video Card QuestionFollow

A buddy of mine just ordered a computer pretty much for FFXIV and was asking me if his Video card is a good card but I don't know much about video card specs. So figured I would ask on here since alot of you know more about this stuff then I. His card is the Nvidia GeForce G310 512MB DDR3. Will this card run FFXIV and a descent level or at all?

That's an on-board Graphics card, it's rare that any game nowerdays supports on-board

Lucky for him, he can still go and buy an actual video card. Onboard graphics are right on the motherboard, and will not do him any good in FF XIV.

He ordered the computer from Dell which I'm not a fan of to begin with and he knows less then I do about computer specs and I don't know much myself. Company's like Dell though don't always know what they are talking about when it comes to that stuff either aka they are going to say that it can handle it just to sell it then it doesn't after you get it. I know another friend that had ordered a PC from Dell told them the requirements he needed they said the computer could handle it he then found out that his PCU and Video Card were both crap. I'll let him know though so he can order a different Video Card hopefully he can upgrade from the one he has.

Alright he asked me if the ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3 would run it. I don't recognize the card so I'm assuming it's a no but I'll ask anyways do you guys know if that card will run it?

For ATI, he needs to buy a 57xx series or higher. Radeon HD 5750, Radeon HD 5770 etc...

For Nvidia, GTX 460 or higher. Those are his best bets. The game will run on lesser cards, but not very good.
