    I recently built a pc with the following that runs in very smooth, even though the Nvidia drivers IMO have yet to optimized for FFXIV:

    - AMD 965 BE OC to 3.6 (need to get a cooler and OC to 4.0)
    - 4 GB DDR3 1600 RAM
    - EVGA 470 OC to 800 / 1600
    - ASUS M4N98TD EVO SLI motherboard (may add another 470 soon)
    - Cooler Master Scout ATX Mid-Tower
    - 650W Corsair PSU

    I'm able to run the game rather well, on high settings at 1080P and in outlands am getting 50-60 FPS. At the Aetheryte with loads of people around, it drops considerably to 20-30.

    If only the damn UI was clientside instead of server side. Stupid ass SE.
