Just to help people who played the choppy beta and had medium benchmark scores... I got 2500 on my benchmark in Hi Res and was still pretty laggy in beta, just installed the game, running it on Default settings, with the exception of changing it to fullscreen mode, and resolution to 1920 x 1200 and i must say i am very pleasantly suprised with the way the game is running right now, didnt have to lower any graphic details!

soo yeah, bottom line is retail version is currently running great on a very average system :)

i could play on high texture settings, and 1200 res/sampling, with good fps in wilderness on my 4650 card.
i just ordered a 5770. So i guess i can play very well with this settings now, and maybe fullscreen too. If i decide to buy the game :p I wasnt very excited about the game during beta, so dunno...I'd wanna see some more additions, or changes before i decide...

Btw, i got 2GB RAM, do i need more? there was 2x 2GB for 150ish dollar.

Quite unreal how much smoother the retail is, I've gone from low settings to high on almost everything and it runs great.

Thanks for the post on lag... its what i expected to happen once the game went live. I would crack up when i would hear of people cnacelling thier pre orders due to too much lag, or UI lag, or lack of hardware mouse, or lack of mobs, or lack of story........ you get the point

2x2GB should not cost more than $100. I would start at 4GB, I have 4GB and I see spike usage of 80% runing starcraft 2 on Ultra settings. I would think ffxiv would use more than SC2 but I don't get to test it until 9/30.

That depends on the quality of the RAM. I see many people who say this kind of thing neglecting things like RAM Timings, CAS Latency, Speed, and Heatspreaders which are all important to the quality of your RAM.

For instance this RAM:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820146748&cm_re=mushkin_ddr3-_-20-146-748-_-Product

This is 1333 RAM, with a CAS Latency of 9, timings at 9-9-9-24, and no Heatspreader is cheap but in no way is it quality RAM.

This RAM from the same brand is still not the best, but much better:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226123&cm_re=mushkin_ddr3-_-20-226-123-_-Product

1600 RAM, CAS Latency 6, timings at 6-8-6-24, and a good Heatspreader as well.

Keep in mind though that as ram speed increases (1333, 1600, 2000) and also as you go from DDR2 to DDR3 timings will generally increase, but that doesn't mean that DDR2 is better than DDR3. Also DDR3 works best in a triple channel configuration, while DDR2 works best in a dual channel configuration.

I only played the opening cutscene, but during more intense sections, the video got choppy and would briefly lock up every few seconds. At the beginning it wasn't as bad and I was able to watch the video just fine, but that was also when there was much less action on the screen (smaller frame changes to render). This was playing at 1080p fullscreen. I got a 2142 on high and a 35xx on low, to give you an idea where I'm at. Anyone else notice that when watching the movie?

I never saw anything like this during Open Beta on my wife's laptop or my desktop. GPU's are a GTX 260M and an HD 5770, respectively.

I run this kit at 6-8-6-18 1.4v 1400MHz. Dont spend more than $100 on 4GB of RAM. (I lowered the frequency to tighten timings "it's better")

The cutscene wasn't in the open beta. It's the FFXIV opening movie, akin to the fight for Tavnazia at the beginning of FFXI.

Nice. Still, this ram has some form of a heatspreader, I would never get RAM that had no heatspreader at all as some people suggest. I guess it would be fine if you got a memory cooler to put over it, but those can be rather large.

Ah, so you had no problems until official release? I have SE on preorder so I'll have to wait and see.
