I really want FFXIV (I've read all about the good and the bad, I'm okay with it) and I'm either going to try to upgrade my pc or wait for the ps3 version to come out, though I would rather play it now.
I have windows xp, an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo (2.33 GHz,) 2 gigs of memory, direct x9, and a NVIDIA® GeForce® 8400 series with 512 MB.
That's on SE's site as the minimum powered rig requirements except for the graphics card, which says I need to have a NVIDIA® GeForce® 9600 series with 512 MB or better. I've got the 8400 I think.
When i run the benchmark i'm getting a ratting of 1000. That's terrible, the standard is 2500+. If I got a new graphics card, would it put me where i need to be? Or is my computer just all around too old? Should I wait for the ps3?
