Thinking this may be a better place to ask that the last I tried.
Thinking of taking up FFXIV some time, back when it came out I only had a dinky laptop that never would have been able to play it but later on I upgraded to a PC. Only problem is I never planned it as a gaming system and I really know next to nothing about hardware to figure how it stands up. I could wait for the game to come out on PS3 whenever but I figure the better experience may be playing it on PC so I'm curious.
I used a site that scans your PC against system requirements and it brought up red flags for my processor and video card. It lists the recommended processor as an Intel Core i7 (2.66 GHz) or faster while I have an Intel Core i3 CPU 550 @ 3.20GHz and the recommended video card is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 with 768 MB VRAM or equivalent while I have a GeForce GT 430 with 3.7 GB.
Could anyone give me an idea of how well my system would play the game? Would playing at/under the recommended requirements or however I stack up be worse off than playing on a ps3?
