Alright using dxdiag i got this information:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T440 @ 2.20 GHz(2 CPUS) ~2.2GHz
4096MB RAM
NVIDIA Geforce GT 320M
Aprox Total Memory: 2777MB
Current Display Mode: 1680x1050 (32 Bit) (60Hz)

Its an ASUS laptop. Please post if i need more information. I have a cooling stand that it sits on with a closed lid that hooks up to an external monitor. I honestly don't care about the settings... They can be as low as can be. As long as the game runs at a playable frame rate im happy. I would just buy the game and try it out but i wouldnt be able to return it if it didnt run well. CAN YOU RUN IT says that my laptop meets the minimum requirements and the Benchmark for FFXIV runs pretty poorly at around 560

Thank you!

Go to and download the benchmark. Its simple and does not take to long.

Can you play it, yes. Can you play it without a restricting amount of hardware lag, no.

haha mate i tried lowing the settings to lowest as possible to see if it reduced the lag but i had no look so i put everything back on high.

but let me tell ya that having it on as low as possible is horrible i mean you get better graphics on a sega megadrive.
thats only if you set buffer to lowest aswell.

I play it on my MacBook during the weekdays when I'm at my apartment and not at home on my gaming rig. It runs decently enough to fight mobs on the absolute lowest settings, but I'm personally spoiled by my gaming rig to do anything more than craft when I'm using my laptop.

Window Size: 1280x900 Fullscreen
Multisampling: Off
Buffer Size: 2/3 <-- This really kills the graphics, but allows the game to run at better than slideshow speed
Shadow Detail: Lowest
Ambient Occlusion: Off
Depth of Field: Off
Texture Quality: Low
Texture Filtering: Lowest

Character Shadows: Off
Dust Effects: Off
Extended Drawing: Off
Physics: Off

Those settings make the game look like some bad SNES game. Then again, your laptop has slightly better specs than mine (mine's got a 9400M), so you might be able to get away with at least Buffer Size at Resolution.
