Ok, I hate being one of those guys...
But I really am a bit out of my depth here, and was hoping someone could give me some advice.
Built a new computer, hoping that I could play FFXIV at a decent graphics level.
So far, nothing but a pain in the ***. Clipping, low frame rate, other issues that make it impossible to play the game.
So the system:
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T (according to the awesome hardward info, this rated a 6336 in pass mark, and according to Mikahla, should be getting 6500+ on the bench mark test)
Windows 7 64 bit
AMD Radeon 6850 Sapphire Toxic OD GPU - again according to the other thread, this ranks a passmark 2814 - again, should be nice and awesome.
So I plug in FFXIV... and... not so spiffy.
Running the bench mark test, I got 2811 for the high rez graphics and a nice 4300 for low rez graphics.
Still, not exactly stunning.
So, help me out please. Am I shooting too high, should I go with "standard" graphics on the game in lower rez? Or is there something I'm missing completely in set up that I can do to boost my performance.
As a side note, my GPU hasn't gone above 41degrees, so I'm pretty sure I'm not taxing it. CPU's hovering around 32ish?
Again, all help and suggestions welcome and sorry about the "that guy" questions.
