Hello, I am new to ff14 and I would love to play the game however no matter what settings I seem to try and play on, it's so choppy it is mostly unplayable. As the title states I believe I have an above average PC, here are my specs, copied straight from the system information section in the ff14 configuration menu:

hmm thats Interesting does it play choppy both in town and outside? I am similar in specs and have no problem playing outside of town though I get an occasional skip in town....

What do you have your video settings on?

I play windowed mode
8xQMSAA for my multisampling
7 general draw quality
4 Background draw quality
high shadow detail?

are your settings similar to that...I am also using a gtx 570

Hmmm, Thanks for the replies, it seems like maybe I just expect my computer to run this game better than it does. With a little more play time the problem seems to be isolated in towns, really annoying but maybe not game breaking.

I noticed this happeneing to me as well.... What I do is stay stationary for a second and let things load. Once it past that point town acts better.

Try a couple of different drivers as well, I had similar issues and they cleared up after playing around a bit
