Hi, I'm looking for a new graphic card to play FF14. Please help me out. Thanks.

I currently have an asus p5ld2 deluxe board that has a pci-e ver 1.0 x16 slot with geforce 9500gt 1gb vram, 3 gb system ram, and a pentium d 3.2 ghz processor. The FF14 benchmark gave my current setup an 800 score. Can I go with a Nvidia 200 series card?

Just as long the card is version 2.0 PCIe. GT220 is about equal to your 9500GT in performance, GT240 would be a small upgrade but anything more powerful is going to be held back by your CPU.

Just like rolli59 said above, you can get GT240 to increase your PC performance, any higher card than GT240 is not good since your CPU is weak/slow (pen.D, Pent.4).

id recommend a gts 450, it is way better than a gt 240 and you cpu should handle it, but id rather get a cpu upgrade then a gpu upgrade

Hi, thanks for the help, everyone. What new cpu would you recommend for the p5ld2 deluxe board that I have?

Your board only supports Pentium4 and D cpu's. You are pretty close to the top so a CPU upgrade would not be viable without a motherboard change.

I see :( 

I guess I'll try a gts 450 card. I found a few in the range of $130-$160 CAD. Thanks for the help again everyone :)
