Build advice - FF14 + maybe fps Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: September 7, 2010 4:50 PM in Systems Share mmoroz September 6, 2010 10:34:18 AM Hello, I am building a comp for Final Fantasy XIV, but figured I'd put a bit extra performance just in case I find some fps I'd like to play. I was planning to go with the following build. If you feel I have parts that are mismatched, or are not worth it, or should be upgraded, please let me know! Thank you! APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: now BUDGET RANGE: $1500-$1600 PARTS NOT REQUIRED: without monitor, keyboard, mouse, OS PREFERRED WEBSITE FOR PARTS: doesn't matter OVERCLOCKING: maybe SLI or CROSSFIRE: yes MONITOR RESOLUTION: 2048 x 1152 Cooler Master Storm Scout: $80 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168... 2 x GTX 460 (EVGA, OC): 2 x $240 = $480 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 01G-P3-1373-TR WD Caviar Black 1 TB: $90 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168... 6 GB DDR3 1600 RAM: $150 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...
