it doesnd haveto be at the most optimal settings or even medium.. but just got enough so that the game doenst move like its running at 1 FPS (kinda like when youre trying to watch streaming movie or a movie file on a PC that doesnt have enough memory).

Well the fact it has a discrete graphics card makes me think it would, but if you can wait at all I would until they release official specs for the game, so you know what the minimum supported system is as well as the recommended specs.

If you're willing to spend a bit more, these refurbished ones are pretty darn good for gaming.

From others who've posted their FFXIV benchmark scores, it seems like Ivy Bridge laptops running an Intel processor (try for an i7) and Intel Hd graphics 4000 video cards run FFXIV exceedingly well despite the poor benchmark score you'd see on videocardbenchmarks.com for the video card alone. The CPU seems to make the difference. If you were looking for something cheap to run the game, I'd start my search there.

I ran the benchmark on my Acer Aspire laptop, which has 8gb RAM, core I-5, and a 2gb Nvidia GeForce GT 630M. I'm not able to run the game well at ultra settings, but at the standard "High" setting I got about a 2800, which should be fine. I have other options should I choose to run at higher settings (ps3, desktop computer).

So based off that, I'd say the comp you linked should be able to run it decently.

Ya, always tend to forget MMO's are far more CPU intensive then other games.
