Final Fantasy XI benchmark
I dunno bout you, but I've been waiting quite some time for FF to come back to pc, and here it is finally.
They were even nice enough to make a benchmark, so ya can see if it'll run okay on yer puter.
My score was 2700 more or less, and that indicates according to them:
2500 to 2999: "Tough" PC
We assume that your computer can run FINAL FANTASY XI for Windows enjoyably with the default settings. If your video card exceeds the recommended system requirements, we recommend that you increase the resolution of FINAL FANTASY XI for Windows. FINAL FANTASY XI might run just as smoothly as in low resolution mode.
So, I guess I'm good to go.
Here's the link:
Scores list is at the bottom of that page.

I tried that benchmark the other day. That was cool!
I really want to see what the actual game is going to be like.
I ended up getting a 2800 score on HIGH RES. and something like 3750 on LOW RES.
But the low res benchmark looked terrible.

interesting find, the benchmark was worth just looking at. I got 4600 on high res, and i didn't bother with low res.
too bad the game has to be online only... do you have to pay monthly to be on it? [of course... silly rabbit]

I hafta pay to be able to play?? not just 1 time buy, but monthly fee??
Forget it, I ain't doin that, I will never pay monthly just to play a game.
Buying a game, okay, some games are worth buying, but monthly fees??
IMHO no game is worth that.
And what about single player?? Or isn't there any single player mode??

Well, i play EverQuest and I pay monthly to play...
But it's TOTALLY worth it.
I mean, there is CONSTANT online support, constant updating, fixes, etc...
Also, EverQuest is just really fun... It's been more than worth the monthly costs. (which isn't that much)
Final Fantasy XI better be damn good to have a monthly charge.

Just wandering if anyone would know or recommend any good video cards that are around a $100-250 Price range....
April 1st, 2004, 07:07 PM #16
for that price range you can get a very good card, I have seen some radeon 9600-9800 at that price range.someone is more skilled than you!

well, as far as playing the game, no you do not have to have a killer score on the benchmark... i play this thing on my 2.4ghz laptop and it runs fine (at quazi low res)... it simulates a decent visual experience but you only see lag from your connection, because there are SOO many ppl in certain areas.
IMHO its worth the extra 13 bucks a month, this game was voted by many popular Magazines as best MMORPG of the year, and it is very involving... 13 bucks isnt THAT much, i am a college student w/o a job and i can pay it (w/o my parents) might wanna check out the ps2 version at a friends house or something just so u can see the actual game in action
