My PC sucks, and i want to upgrade it to run FFXIV until the PS3 version comes out next year. The motherboard only supports PCI cards (not PCI-E or AGP cards).
Ive found 1 PCI card that may run FFXIV but im not sure and i need expert advice before I buy the **** thing. The only thing im short of is a card to run the game. Everything else exceeds (just) the minimum requirements (or will do when i increase the RAM).
The card im looking at is the following:
PNY NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS Graphics Card
