hey there, i was a huge fan of ffxi and we super stoked when i heard of the ffxiv release only to find that it was a let down. So obviously i restrained from purchasing it hoping that it would get better with time. so now that its 2012 i have decided itd like to give it a try but im not sure whether or not my computer will run it. i have a HP pavilion dv6000 http://www.notebookcheck.net/HP-Pavilion-dv6000.1800.0.html with a 3gb ram.

would anyone be able to tell me if this would be able to run the game at all? thatd be great, i know it runs WoW quite well but the graphics between the games are somewhat different i would say, haha.

It runs like crap on even the highest spec systems. The fact you don't have integrated Intel graphics is good, but I highly doubt you could run it at all, sorry. :/

Try finding a copy of the benchmark. Ignore the score as it doesn't really matter, but pay attention to how well/smooth the CGI runs.

the game will "run" on the laptop. your ram and processor will handle it but idk bout the graphics. if you play on minimized settings might not lag.

I've found "Personaly" its better to sacrifice graphics for performance in this game unless you have a high end graphics card.

It should be able to run the game fine on the lower/lowest settings but will be very blocky!

As for the games settings: turn the texture right down & turn the graphic settings to low, turn shadowing down to lowest, & adjust it up accordingly any probliems or lagg & turn it back down.

when in the game probably turn off shadows & maybe physics & turn it to 30 FPS
it'll be very blocky like a PS One but "should" be playable

Helpful reply but testing setting in this game is such a pain because of the initial character/world load...drives me crazy..
