should I wait for ps3 release?Follow

I'm kinda torn right now, don't know if I should spend some money on my pc to play this game, or just wait until ps3 release when the game has evolved a little more.

I am computer retarded, here is what I have:
http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/486430/HP-Pavilion-a6342p-b-Desktop-Computer/

Processor: Intel Pentium Dual E2180 @ 2.00 GHz
Memory: 3.00 GB
32 bit Vista
GE Force 8800 graphics card.

I installed a evga 8800 awhile back, but it looks like I'll need at 9500, don't know if that will even fit in my cpu, the 8800 was a tight fit. I am poor, if anyone who knows what they are talking about, please suggest a minimum cost way to play this game on pc.

Otherwise, I played 11 on ps2 for years, graphics aren't a primary concern. I just don't want to get the massive lag I used to get playing 11 on my xbox. (Beseiged, etc..) Does it make more sense for me to just wait until March and play on PS3?

PS. I know how people like to argue about pc vs console, I'm not trying to start a flame war. Graphics are not that important to me, just want to avoid lag.

8800 is better than a 9500. A higher number doesn't mean a more powerful card.

Thank you, I didn't realize that. As I said before I am cpu retarded, I've read through the sticky's but just end up more confused.

I'll be very truthful - if you look around at some of the active threads, you will find that lag is going to be the least of your worries. You might want to think about whether you want to spend money on a game that seems to still be in a *beta* stage.

you should wait and I think that after living with how horrible FFxiv runs on my high end PC I think waiting for the PS3 Version will be the right choice,We PC people just got rimmed.

Not for nothing even on 'low' settings the game looks pretty amazing. I've had my evga 8800gtx for years and just love how long and well its hammering on. I don't use the 8800gtx on my primary PC anymore but I know it can handle the game fine on Medium settings.

I agree this game still feels too 'beta-ish'. Feels too incomplete plus I think it doesn't make use of cards that are SLI nearly at all. Hopefully it gets ironed out soon.
