Hello, I have been putting off getting a new pc for a while now. I have a slow laptop that I got from being enrolled in school and it just isn't doing it anymore. I figured with the release of FF XIV it would be a great time until I can get it in March for my ps3. The thing is I do not know much about gaming on a pc. I played FFXI on it but that was it and it didn't even run it that well. Are there any suggestions for a decently priced desktop that could run FF XIV on average setting or maybe a little higher? Like I said I am not familiar with pc gaming. I was hoping to spend around 1k at the most but depending what I need I could go more or less. Thank you for any suggestions.

Are you willing to build your own? The difference between buying prebuilt and building your own is very significant, and it's not hard to do. There is a sticky dedicated to it.

I have never built a pc or even thought I would be able to. Seems to difficult to me with all the parts. It would be awesome if I could but I think I would worry too much about breaking something.
