I had everything turned down pretty much all the way. Still looked good, though. 4-8 FPS in crowded areas, though. :( I think I maxed @ 26 or so.

I have a list of my planned part's I've been meaning to post and ask you about, but I figured I'd wait til the games out to see peoples results.

Basically it was
AMD Phenom II x4 3.4
Idk anything about M-boards
Seems like good memory?

And I'm still not sure if I wanna crossfire 5750's or wait and play with my single til I can get a 480. OR TWO. :O~!

Also looking at an iBuyPower basically the same specs, but with 2500g Raid 0's, some other misc, for right around 1k. Oh and its liquid cooled. It'll be about 300 bucks more.

Those parts are a decent start, but even if you bought them I don't think you'd see too much of a performance increase in FFXIV because the GPU is your current bottleneck. However, if you went and bought the 2nd GPU and didn't buy the rest of these parts, they would be the bottle neck and your 2nd GPU wouldn't get used to its full potential. So you kind of need it all. But they're decent choices for the price.

I'm curious as to how much faster the boots make you run. If it's something barely noticeable I'll probably save myself the trouble of having to reactivate my FFXI account.

My roommate is running a phenom II quad core, and that same video card, and he can run the game with mostly high settings. Well, the beta version anyway. I think you will get much better FPS with a better card though. I think 2 would work ok, assuming you can get sli/crossfire or whatever ATI uses to work correctly.

You'll have to excuse my language, I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to PC's and always want the best. I have an i7 920, 2 GTX 285's which is a pretty good system, and I'm actually considering some upgrades for myself. I'm honestly not a fan of AMD chips, in fact there's only 1 AMD processor I have respect for and think it worth the money and that is this...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849

The AMD X6 can actually get pretty close to the performance of a $1000 Extreme chip from Intel. Pretty impressive for the price. The rest I just honestly feel don't compare with similarly priced Intel chips. Also, AMD chips don't have triple channel RAM support which is disappointing. If you know what a RAID setup is for hard drives, dual and triple channel are more or less the same for RAM. If you don't know what it is, well, it makes things run faster =)

Building a good PC is all about making sure there aren't any bottlenecks. You can spend $1000 on a couple high end Graphics cards, but if you don't have a powerful enough CPU then you can't utilize the full power of the GPUs. If you get too powerful of a CPU and not a good enough GPU, it's kind of a waste as well. The ideal thing is to figure out what your needs are, find a budget and build accordingly.

For the GPUs you're considering, I think you've picked out a good enough CPU/Mobo/RAM setup.

I want that x6 but my friend was saying that "2" of the "6" will be useless. And the Phenom x4 3.4 would be better then a x6 3.2

:(

Maybe I'll just save for a month or two and buy some other stuff. GTX480 x2 wut?
