I'm running on 4 GB of RAM, 64bit windows 7, processor's intel(R) core (TM)2 DUO CPU E8400@3.00 GHz 3.00GHz.
Currently I have a GeForce GTS 250 with 1GB physical memory. I upgraded into this card just for XIV.
I also retired the old HD which seemed to improve the FPS considerably.
I'm still running the game with standar settings and without all the whistles on though.
Ambient Occlusion no, depth of field yes, texture quality high, filtering high, multisampling 4x msass, general draing 8 (standar), background drawing 3 (standar), shadow detail high.
Usually windowed at 1440x900 so I can still look at my other windows.
After calling off my vacation plans I ended up with a little something something in my pocket. So I was considering another upgrade. I was thinking a motherboard and processor upgrade would be the next step, but do you think it'd be best to get a better videocard instead of a new processor in order to see an increase in performance on XIV?
