Bumping, I have the pre-built computer and while I upgraded the GPU, I'm having trouble deciding on what CPU to get and whether or not an AM3 would be compatible

Depends on your mobo specifically, it has to be either AM2+(most prebuilts use this nowadays, older ones use AM2 only) or AM3.

Here are my system specs:

Motherboard : Quanta 3603
Chipset : Intel PM45
Processor : Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T9400 @ 2533MHz
RAM : 4096MB (2 x 2048 DDR2-SDRAM )
Video : NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
Hard Disk : Hitachi HTS543225L9A300 (250GB)
Monitor : SAMSUNG - 15 inches
OS : Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium Home Edition Media Center 6.00.6002 Service Pack 2 (32-bit)
DirectX : Version 11.00 (I think I have a 9.0c, but "PC Wizard" says 11.00)

Everything fits the minimum system requirements, but FFXIV stil doesn't work properly (actually you can't play it at all... it's too slow).

Can someone help me, please? :cry:

you have an nvidia card. these are having a problem dealing with depth of field and ambient occlusion. Turn them off in the ff14 config. ( a separate launcher .exe exits for this.)

Thanks a lot for your help, but "ambient occlusion" and "depth of field" were already off. I also set all the graphic settings to the lowest rank, but even if the game gets a little bit better, it still runs very very slow...

Is there something else I can do? Maybe I can change also the nvidia settings, but how? I want to specify that my graphic card's drivers are up to date.

The 9600m is a low end card, about the perfomance of an 8400 I believe.
It says dx11 because you have Vista, it'll always tell you that.

Oh hell, different people are taking over this thread!

I see...
Ok, fine. I suppose I'll wait about a year when probably I'll buy a new pc. It seems useless to buy a new graphic card (which is very expensive) only in order to play a game.

However, thanks for your help.

A new gpu for your desktop or laptop? Because laptops can't use different gpu's then the one preinstalled.
A 150$ card can play it fine. That may be expensive, but it should keep you gaming for 2 years without thinking, "should I upgrade again?"

For my desktop.
Anyway... I'll buy a new one next year, so I'll wait 'cause it will have a better gpu than anyone I can buy now for 150$
