Build advice - FF14 + maybe fps Tags: Homebuilt Systems Product 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.
