After weeks of thinking, rethinking, and to and fro, I've finally settled on my new gaming PC build and was hoping there may be someone willing to review. I'm looking to play FFXIV on the best settings where possible, and hope this build can allow me to at least play on medium/high settings. Please feel free to comment/suggest any changes where necessary.
Please note: I know some pieces will be overkill, but I plan on playing many PC games in addition to FFXIV and am hoping this rig will provide value over the next 2-3 years.
Thank you so much - I can't wait to piece it together and install FXIV that first time!
