help getting ready for releaseFollow

hi all.
really could do with some advice on what to do with my pc to get ready for release.
was not to worried about the release of the game just thought my pc would be ok to run it. kind of thought it would be on low settings but would still run it anyway.
my pc spec is

windows 7 home edition
core2 quad 2.5ghz
6gig of ram ddr3
nvidia geforce g210 512mb graphics

after finaly getting on the beta i have found the game just unplayable. takes ages to load cutscenes and the game is just horribly jumpy. and trying to fight something is impossible due to the jumping when moving.
my hp pc is only 8 months old and was just thinking of upgrading the graphics card until playing the beta. now think maybe a whole new pc may be in order it runs THAT bad. got a score of only 450 in the benchmark test.
please help!!!!!!!!!

I would buy a new GPU, make sure your Motherboard supports it. Although your PC will probably run the retail version better but probably not much better than what you're experiencing now. A good cheap card is Radeon 5770 and it may have got a price drop recently, not sure..i use it and I'm running game on high res medium settings...that should do it.

CPU passes minimum spec so it should be ok, i think a GPU would give the game a good boost but don't expect to be run on too good of settings. Don't rush into buying anything either, check out the sticky topic for starters there should be links in it to computer threads for FFXIV, they might be able to answer your questions much better than I can. good luck :).
