Hey people im new hear but i need some help. I've asked game stores wether my pc will run FFXIV, they said it probably should, but they seemed a bit sceptical. I went ahead and bought the game anyway (cause it was real cheap) but i have yet to receive it in the post. Meanwhile, I'm worried i wont even be able to play it! So here are my pc's specs:

CPU: Intel Celeron(R) 2.80GHz
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4350 512mb

I think thats it. So would anyone be kind enough to enlighten me as to wether it'll work or not? I'm not too fussed about wether I'll have to run the game on real low settings.

Your PC doesn't even meet the bare minimum standards. Your CPU is too weak (Lowest recommended is a Core 2 Duo E8400, nothing lower unless you want horrid framerates.), you don't have enough RAM (I think the min. recommended was 4GB.) and your video card won't cut it either. Okay, the video card MAY work, but the rest is far too low to support this game.

Here is the minimum.

Operating System
Windows® XP SP3 *1
Windows Vista® 32-bit / 64-bit SP2 *2
Windows 7 32-bit / 64-bit *2
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo (2.0 GHz)
AMD Athlon™ X2 (2.0 GHz)
Windows XP: 1.5 GB
Windows Vista / Windows 7: 2 GB
Install: 15 GB
Download: 6 GB
NVIDIA® GeForce® 9600 series with 512 MB VRAM or equivalent
ATI Radeon™ HD 2900 series with 512 MB VRAM or equivalent
DirectSound® compatible sound card (DirectX® 9.0c)
Broadband Internet connection
1280 × 720; 32-bit
DirectX® 9.0c
Mouse, Keyboard


Pick up an E8400 (I'd recommend something better actually.) and some more memory. You'll probably have to drop a great deal of the settings but what you got now won't even run the game on the lowest period. If it even can, it won't be playable. Good luck.
