Laptop
CPU: i5
GPU: HD 5470 1g
RAM: 4GB Ram

Running Game at:
Resolution Size: 1280x854
Display: Windowed
Multisampling: 4x MSAA
General Drawing Quality: 6
Background Drawing Quality: 2 (I rarely put more than this)
Shadow: Lowest
Ambient Occlusion: Off
Depth of Field: Off
Texture Quality: Standard
Texture Filtering: Standard

FPS
20-25 in Ul'dah
25-40 in Battle
35-45 Wondering around, highest I seen on this setting is 51 FPS but not constant

I can up the texture quality to high and barely takes a hit on FPS but in fights like Ifrit, it makes me lag on cracks so lowered it. Found out the hard way.

Hey,
I don't understand why my Final Fantasy XIV is quitting out on me and is also a fuzzy straight line during gameplay! Here are my computer stats and what Final Fantasy XIV config is set to.


My NVidia drivers were forcing VSync off, go to the manage 3d settings section and select ffxivgame.exe or whatever corresponds to it (may need to add it manually) and for ffxiv select VSync on (should be the last option) and Enable Triple buffering right above it.

Hello!

I would like a recommendation on what I should set my settings to for the best quality. I've tried many different combos, but I can't seem to get it right, it's either too pixellated or too jumpy.

Here's my CPU specs:
64-Bit AMD Phenom II X4 810 Processor (4 CPUs) ~2.6GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250
Benchmark Score: 2059

Please help me with what I should set my config (both out and in game) to and get the best results

Thanks,
Eckart Ironmark (Aegis)

Get an Nvidia GeForce GTS 550 for $120 it will dramatically improve your performance.

What is your budget? I don't normally suggest anything lower than 560, but if you could afford the 570 then you should go with that. You can run XIV(currently) at moderately high settings and when 2.0 comes it's likely that you could run at max eye candy.

My budget is not enough to buy a 550 or 560. Those cost like $200-$300. I spent that much buying this GTS250 when this game first came out. I really don't have the funds to buy another graphics card.

The 560 is your best bet then. Personally I'd wait if I could to see how the changes to the graphics engine will affect performance, but if you need something now then you can get something that will work well for you.

The 550 is 120 in newegg and you will need a new power supply unit that is 60 extra, so total is 180, i just did this 3 weeks ago, i went from playing bearly in minimun to running the game almost at hight settings no problems

Well, again, my budget is very very tight right now. Thanks for the newegg tip, but I don't trust those "generic" brands of graphics cards. If I'm going to do this, I will do it with a genuine NVIDIA card. It's just not something I can buy at the moment. When is 2.0 going live? Has there been a date set yet? Also, you said something about a new power supply. I already have a 500-watt power supply, is that not enough for the 550 or the 560?

The 550 isn't worth the trouble. I really don't recommend anything lower than 560 or 5770 and those only run the game at medium-high settings. 500w is enough to run either of those GPUs.

Oh, the cards are all reference by the way. If you peel the stickers off they are all the same card underneath. The benefit to brand is that some companies offer better warranty, some have better customer service and some have programs that allow you to trade in your GPU for an upgrade within a certain amount of time. The components are all either nvidia or AMD with the exception of higher end models that add things like cooling blocks.

2.0 is expected to go to beta before the year ends and be up sometime shortly after that, but there haven't been any firm dates set.

The only "generics" to avoid are Sparkle and Rosewill. I've never heard much good from either of those.

I'm currently running on a low voltage Sapphire Radeon HD 5670, and while it's just a midlist card these days, it's still pretty good bang for the buck. I'd have to sink about $300 in combined video card and PSU upgrades to see any noticeable performance increase. (On the other hand, I really could use a CPU upgrade, but my hardware budget has been gutted by tuition these days...)

Hi,

When you say it is too jumpy do you mean that you are dropping frames? What resolution is your monitor? With your video card you should start at low settings and work your way up. There is a post on this page that details the settings for a mid-range laptop. You could start there (with the resolution set at your native resolution) and work your way up.

Nvidia only makes the chip, not the card, so you will never buy a NVIDIA card....... Also the Nvidia GTX 550 Ti will give you the biggest boost in performance for little to no money invested, i used this link to upgrade my pc for FFXIV a month ago: http://www.linkshells.com/entry.php?2-You-don-t-need-a-1-500-PC-to-run-FFXIV

I went from not being even on the benchmark to being 1,898 and i can run the game at medium/high settings perfectly fine, all for $180. Also considering that 2.0 will supposedly be better Configured better and will require a lower requirement than 1.0, you dont really need a 250+ card.

Not quite correct Ostia. Other companies like EVGA, Sapphire and MSI get the GPUs from nVidia and basically apply a sticker on them with their own branding. Some companies tune the GPU(OC) to higher specs or add different parts like cooling blocks(FTW) or fans with a nifty logo, colored case lids or heat sinks. For the most part they're identical.
