Well first attempt it ran and I failed the benchmark. The only thing is I was using an integrated graphics card so of course to fix it I went out and bought a ATI Radeon HD5450 with 1GB memory. (Specs say minimum is 2900 with radeon HD). Now when I attempt to run it after picking the race, etc. the screen pops up to play then I get "FFXIV Benchmark has stopped working... windows is attempting to find a solution to the problem." Nothing I do fixes it.
The video card driver is fully updated.
Direct X is fully updated (had that problem before I got a crap score the first time).
*Edit: I've decided to give trying out a different brand graphics card, was told this one has driver issues, tried downloading older drivers for it too since new one didn't work, If anyone thinks that wont solve the problem and has any other tips, feel free to reply and thank you in advance!*
