    FFXIV:ARR Recommended System Requirements

    I am looking for specific hardware specifications that allow the final release (ver.) to play on MAX graphical settings without loss of performance.

    For example:
    "Is the i5 more suitable than the i7; or was FFXIV:ARR tested with i5 or i7?"
    "Is 8gb RAM more than enough for the life of the game; Is 16gb+ needed for certain scenarios, even if not needed all the time?"
    "What hardware set-up is best to avoid Direct X, etc. crashes?"

    I would like to minimize my PC build expense as much as possible and would love as much feedback on this as possible.

    I want to add as well, which version of windows is most stable at this time with current hardware and drivers. I have a fear if I went with Win 8 half the crap I'd end up buying would crash when I go to open a music file...
    After my experience with my current laptop crashing for god who knows why when playing games I get paranoid about PC builds.

    I have read that current games would not utilize more than 8gb of RAM and that there is some future proof with this. Just something I have read though, not 100% sure.

    I would also look into HDD's transferring @ 6gb/s, it has made a noticeable difference for me.

    if you make the computer now, the price will be the double of what it is when ARR comes out :P Wait with buying the parts untill a month before launch and the requirements actually exists. Not even beta requirements is out there.

    Id wait and if your signed up for beta you can test performance out then, FFXIV's orginal engine left a lot to be desired and ARR's engine been completely rebuilt to run better with lower hardware specs. The benchmark should see a release sometime soon as well which will help rate your current build. Im not that techy so thats the only advice i can offer...Windows 8, umm ive heard alot of people say leave it for now.

    Unfortunately, the system requirements for FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn have not been released yet. The closest thing I would be able to refer you to is the System Requirements for the Beta Test, which you will be able to find in the link below.
