I dare not try my hand at building a PC. I woud probably just get electrocuted in the process. So Im thinking about buying an OTC desktop since my laptop is laggy even with everything all the way down. So what's a good OTC rig for under 800 dollars? Im getting paid tomorrow and I got money burning a hole in my pocket.

Also, is there any reason my cutscenes wouldn't be loading? It takes an age and a half for them to load and even then they are rathe buggy. I can skip them and the game runs well enough but I'd like to know what's going on.

good (cheap) OTC desktops from computer stores do not exist. I have bought my computers from the computer markets that are held around my city every two weeks or so, so you should check to see if there is anything like that where you live.

Alienware's are great OTC PC's for gaming. Alot of people don't like them simply because they are much more expensive than building your own. But if you dont want to try and build one yourself, Alienware's are very very solid computers, and personally, i think they look pretty cool...

For under $800 however, you might have some trouble finding something that would play FFXIV at anything other than the very lowest settings. You can build one however for around that price that would more than get the job done.

Your really gonna have to sacrifice in one area or the other... Price? or Convenience?

any idea why cutscenes would be taking forever to load but the game runs smoothly?
