I play it on my laptop at work and it runs ok, well when I played it.

I don't know what kind of super computer people think they need for this game, or they just have old comps.

Well, you can run the game with all special effects turned off, NPCs and players takes 2~3 minutes to spawn when you're in a crowded area, FPS drops to 5~10 in crowded area and still call it without a problem. While some people may want to play the game at highest setting with 30~50FPS in crowded area. It doesn't really matter how much money you, or others have spent on their rig, as long as you're enjoying the game (or the performance of your comp), then it's worth the money.

I do not regret the nearly 3k I spent on my computer. I didn't built it just for FFXI though, it was just happen to be when FFXI was released.

It felt exciting. I was so exhilarated by the news, I called up my dad and was like, "Hey, Dad, rimey built a computer that runs ffxiv just fine for less than $400."

and he was like, "who the f*ck is rimey?"

and I was like, "I know, right!"

LOL This thread is made of fail by an some arrogant ______...

But on a brighter note, I don't feel bad at all shelling out for a new PC, considering i use mine for way more than just gaming. It was about time for an upgrade anyway.

I spent ~3k on my new computer. I can honestly tell you that I have no regrets. This machine is going to last me a long time.

Your computer plays this game.

My $3500 rig plays it on high setting in 1920 x 1080 with framerates usually ranging from 45-60 FPS (30 @ Ul'Dah repair NPC). I can also over-clock and tweak things without worrying about melting my computer.

Nice try =)

That isn't including case, monitor, keyboard, speakers, windows 7 and aftermarket heatsink. The only other thing I can think of that jacked up the price is that I brought it back in August. That and I live in Australia were the prices are high.

ahh i see, those do jack up the price a bit, especially if you go with the higher priced parts, i just recycled my old parts when i did my upgrade in september, got a free copy of win7 from engineering school, heatsink was only 20 bucks for me :) so only parts i replaced were CPU (phenom 965 x4 at 3.4), GPU (gtx 460), mobo (free with cpu) and ram (4 gb ddr3) totaled to like 500 before $50 rebate

but yeah 3k seems only slightly overpriced now considering if you paid full retail for win7 ultimate ($400ish?)

Yeah, Windows 7 did set me back $370.

I was in need for a complete upgrade. My previous computer could barely handle games that were coming out late last year. Last computer was a 2.2Ghz Intel Pentium D, Nvidia 7600GT, 2GB DDR2 Ram, 200GB HDD.

Just curious, is there a specific reason for you to get win7 ultimate? The OEM version of win7 pro is about $100 and besides it doesn't support multi-language and doesn't have bitlocker, everything else is pretty much the same.

This feature is great when the people using your computer everyday come from 2 or 3 different countries ^^; But 300 extra bucks just for that -is- a bit steep.

Good for you?

Im happy with the 800 dollars I spent to upgrade(Build really) my comp, granted right now my computer has absolutely nothing original in it other then the DVD Drive and Case(New PSU, New GFX card, New MOBO, New CPU, new RAM additional fan) So i now have an amazing build that runs FFXIV with little lag(none in most cases). So you upgraded yours for 400? good for you. Nobody cares.

I don't know what makes me feel better-
The fact that XIV finally gave me a reason to build the comp I always wanted, instead of the one I always settled for, or the fact that the OP is jealous of it.

How does it feel when i tell you i spent about $1200, and i couldn't be happier with it. My computer does more than play FF XIV. Also, we have no idea what your PC had in it before you upgraded. Maybe all you needed was a new video card, so good for you.

I have a laptop that I installed 7 onto so having multiple licences is handy. And I beginning to use the multi language feature.

When you take into account the money you've spent sorting out your erectile disfunction, it probably balances out.

Yea i did make this post to be a jerk :D My last comp was a 7 year old Alienware before they got bought by dell. It was 3k, over priced i know but i was young. For the record my comp does run this game on high settings, on 1980x1080. I only made this post cause there was a thread about how someone had to spend thousands just to get the game to run. I though that was stupid because my comp runs this game perfectly fine. Also i was just in a bad mood yesterday so sorry for all this lol.

yeah yeah my 7 year old computer can run the game on high settings, just on 1fps =.= what really matters is how it plays out over time, so tell us what did you manage to get with 400 dollars to make it run as well as the higher range machines?

Sounds like you don't make that much money, so are likely unsuccessful. People with this profile typically have lower standards, like you standards "without problems" might be.

Is your FFXIV benchmark at least 4000?
Are you running UXGA?
Do you have AA above 2X?
Do you actually understand the difference between a mouse and keyboard?
Are you for Obama care? (think we already know that answer)

THOUGH technology moves on all the time, what was bought for 3k 3 months ago could be 2k now... we're all going to find better deals as time goes on anyway ^^

You, sir, fail.

You could achieve "without a problem" for $300, so if you think cheapest is success, you fail.

You can't run the game at a steady 60 FPS at 2560x1440 with every setting cranked to max and max AA for $400. So if performance matters, you fail.

You see my point?
