Your PC can indeed run the game just fine, my first advice would be establishing if your GPU or CPU is the core of the problem. I imagine one of them may be dropping to 0% load/usage and then back to normal load. I would lean to assume it's more of a CPU issue but you might as well do a full re-install of your Nvidia drivers.

Have you had this problem before? With any other games?

I got yelled at in the official forums and called an idiot because I had too much ram (12GB) and didn't turn of sidestep or w/e the **** it is in bios.

My fix for you sir is:
Right-click desktop->Personalize
Click Screensaver
Click Change Power Settings
Show Additional Plans
Choose High Performance
Click Change Plan Settings
Change Advanced Power Settings
Expand Hard Disk->Turn off Hard Disk
Change to 0 minutes/never.
Press Ok, Press Ok
Restart to be sure ^^

You shouldn't have it going forward.

I had this issue where my cpu was clocking up/down rapidly, not sure why. Did the same thing to me, but without the mouse icon.

you wouldn't happen to be on a wireless connection would you ?

Lag spikes which are consistent could be due to wireless signal. Friend had the same issue but not on FF was an FPS of some sort and he used to have aping of 80 normally then 250-300 for 5 seconds or so then back down.

Yeah i've always had wireless, the router and modem are literitly right beside the Computer. I havnt had this problem before, I played FFXIV about 3 months back and it was flawlessly, (well you know normal Over-crowded city laggyish) but other than that it worked perfectly now it isnt ; 3 ;

Head to speedtest.net and run your results there, on your wireless PC and then on something connected via LAN.

If the numbers are radically different, something might be going on with your wireless connection.

On that note, is there more than one wireless device hooked up? Older wireless routers only have 1-2 antennas and if you have 4 computers running at once it could cause some collision issues.

Suprisingly: Not necessarily. FFXI was optimized for dial up connections, and tends to be more forgiving to random burps in the connection (which is why you can dip all the way down to 33% connection and still recover in a lot of cases.)

However, I'm betting it is something else in this case. Open up Task Manager. What other apps and services are running?

Do you really have 13GB of Ram or is that a typo? The only way I can see you getting that is with some odd paring of Ram sticks which could potentially cause an issue.

In what combination?

4 4 4 1?

If that's the case, replace that last 1 with a 4 gig stick.

Most modern motherboards require parallel RAM installations. There will be two different colored RAM slots; the slots with the same colors should have the same amount of RAM in them. Many systems won't even pass POST if the RAM doesn't match up right. (Trust me; discovered this the hard way out in the field once trying to do a RAM upgrade on a customer's workstation. We assumed they had two 1 gig sticks and took out two more. Nope, they had a single 2 gig stick, and the system wouldn't even boot up when we tried adding in the 1 gig sticks. Had to drive back to the office and grab the right parts and drive all the way back with the customer's PC guts spilled all over the office floor. Yeah...)

Have you checked your GPU temp while playing? It's a longshot, but overheating can cause all sorts of odd problems.

EDIT: Check the CPU temp too. Some systems throttle the cpu back when temps get too high, which could potentially cause weirdness in game.

Im having the exact same problem and have tried everything thats been suggested here and in multiple google searches but nothings worked. This game and diablo 3 are the only games ive had this issue with lately though ffxi runs as perfect as it always has. Im not at home atm so i cant post my pc specs right now but a friend said i may need to replace the gfx card which i bought specifically for this game and dont want to if theres something else i can do to fix this.

have you attempted wired connection just to test ?

If the PC is next to the router where is no reason not to have wired its tons better.
