Um, the only issue i see with that computer is the Radeon HD 5870. Its a great card, but many, many people have said that ATI based cards are not working properly for this game. I'm sure this will be fixed at or near release tomorrow, but just a heads up that the best PC in the world with the wrong graphics card will still make the game crash.
If you can change it, I'd look for a nice, high end Nvidia card. Otherwise, good deal and cool case!
Incorrect. Mine and my sister's ATI's worked perfectly fine. However both Nvidia (tested 470) and Ati (our XFX 5770) had a shadow issue with the game. Also FFXIV were eating up Nvidias like candy.
Where was it said that ATIs weren't working with FFXIV? It's understandable if you dislike ATIs and like Nvidia, but please share sources that said the other side didn't work with the game since I've heard more problems coming from Nvidia cards than I heard from ATI, namely FFXIV turning your PC into an oven with Nvidia.
I have two machines, one with dual 5770's and one with a single 5770 and they run just fine. I was under the impression that the ATI glitch was isolated to Beta Phase 2 and part of 3?
It was isolated in Phase 2 and fixed in Phase 3 just before open beta. Edited, Sep 21st 2010 9:33am by Jennestia
