Hello,
this is my specification:
Windows 7 home premium 64-bit
Intel (R) Core (TM) i5 CPU 750 @2.67GHz ~ 2.7Ghz
Nvidia GeForce GT 330

will ffxiv work well on my pc?
Cause i only got a score of 2079 on low benchmarking.

Please Help me, because im deciding whether to pre-order or not.
Thank you before.
:)

[8000 and over] Extremely High Performance
Easily capable of running the game on the highest settings.
[5500–7999] Very High Performance
Easily capable of running the game. Should perform exceptionally well, even at higher resolutions.
[4500-5499] High Performance
Easily capable of running the game. Should perform well, even at higher resolutions.
[3000-4499] Fairly High Performance
Capable of running the game on default settings. Consider switching to a higher resolution depending on performance.
[2500-2999] Standard Performance
Capable of running the game on default settings.
[2000-2499] Slightly Low Performance
Capable of running the game, but may experience some slowdown. Adjust settings to improve performance.
[1500-1999] Low Performance
Capable of running the game, but will experience considerable slowdown. Adjusting settings is unlikely to improve performance.
[Under 1500] Insufficient Performance
Does not meet specifications for running the game.



Should run it just about. The text above is from the Benchmark site.

That would probably help you out somewhat, the benchmark scores that were quoted are running the game at 1280*768 resolution so if you are wanting to run at higher than that you will have poorer performance, the chart here details performance in a different benchmark http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html the higher the score the better, your GT 330 scores about 600 If you can afford a different graphics card then go for it, do bear in mind you may need to upgrade your power supply unit too though with a more powerful graphics card.

Sorry if the above is a little jumbled, I have a badly lacerated hand and the painkillers are killing my few remaining brain cells....

I got 2100 on the benchmark and the game runs fine for me on low-mid details.

Yeah, and it costs anywhere from $450-$550.

You can also get a GTX 470 and overclock it and it will "almost" be as good as the default GTX 480, but a lot cheaper.

Im currently running the 470 in beta not overclocked with everything on high except ambient occlusion and its buttah. Other then the few stuttering bugs that appears to be beta-bugs(see what I did there?) rather then what the card can handle.

Will overclocking a video card damage the video card itself?
However, I dont really know how to overclock the video card.

Now that I have bought the GTX 470 my benchmark score in High is 3209
Is that good enough?
Can I overclock with only one GPU ?

It can damage a card yes. It can shorten a cards lifespan too. However that said one component I have always found to be the first to fail in a PC is the graphics card. My old PC built about 6 years ago went through 4 graphics cards in its life time. The rest of the system is still capable of doing what it made to do when I made it. And I never overclocked the cards in it. So I do generally expect to see my GPU fail a year after purchase whether I overclock it or not. You will also probably invalidate your warranty if you overclock your card.

how do i overclock it ?


If thats in High resolution then you're going to be fine. My PC scores 2501 in high resolution and I get about 28-35 Fps in town and 45+ in the wilds. It runs fine so you're going to fly. What do you get on a the normal benchmark ?

Wow, I can't believe you actually went out and bought a new GPU for a game you're not even sure you want to play? Anywho, the 470 shouldn't require any overclocking to handle this game. Just leave it stock and be happy. To be honest, you won't get an amazing performance boost from overclocking the 470 to begin with, maybe a couple FPS at most with this game, and considering the 470s run hot to begin with, I wouldn't recommend it for a novice overclocker. You run the risk of damaging your graphics card.

Now aside from all that, if you're still serious about looking into overclocking, your best bet is to go read up on a PC hardware forum, like Tom's Hardware Forum, and get some quality info.

Oh sorry, did you say you bought a gtx 470, i only skimmed the post. Great card and you will love it. Also i personally love FFXIV with just what we saw in OB so far (minus a handful of issues that hopefully will be fixed by release, or soon after)

You're good to go. I get 4500 in Low settings and 2500 at High on a Radeon 5770 and I am happy with the performance running at 1920*1080.
