Hi everyone!

I've always had a HUGE interest in FFXIV, but never bought the game when I found out about the restricted exp before it launched. I know much has gone into making this game better, and I want to give it an honest try now.

Since the Ps3 version isn't out, I was wondering just how well my computer would run the game.


4gb RAM
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T Processor 3.2ghz
AMD Radeon 6850 graphics card.

I really want to do this game some justice, and not play on low settings.

Thank you!

They are lowering the graphics engine for v2, should be able to play it when they do that next year.

If you wanna try it now download the benchmark.

Wellll I decided to pick up the CE of the game from Gamestop, because it was only $30.

Guess I'll find out today if I can run it :p

Thank you!

The benchmark is almost useless at this point, and runs poorly on machines that now run the game just fine. I'd say you should fine, but let us know how it goes.

Just wanted to pop in and say it runs the game just fine :) And it looks beautiful.

Started a lancer in the sand area, and already I'm amazed at the cutscenes. Can't wait for more fun!

@ the OP
Glad to hear you're enjoying it!
I was going to say, your system build surpasses mine and I play on medium settings with negligible graphical lag.

AMD Athlon X4 @ 3.4ghz | 4gb DDR3 | ATi 5770 Overclocked edition GPU

There are some on the forums that will say, unless you have an uber powerful machine that will run the game on maximum settings, don't bother and wait for 2.0 with it's presumably better graphics engine.
I say Hooey to that!
If you've got a quad-core, 4gb of RAM and a dedicated GPU that rivals at least a 1gig Nvidia 9600GT I say give it a shot. This game is pretty even on low settings!

Anyway, if you ended up on Sargatanas and need a friendly linkshell, throw me a /tell I'm usually on after 7:00pm EST. Details are in my signature :)

I actually started on Excalibur, because I heard a lot of people say it was a good place for new players.

Level 10 lancer atm :)

What stats should I focus on? strength and....dex?
