Anyone know how expensive it would be to build a pc that can run ARR on max @ 60 FPS in 1080p?
Just the PC itself, no keyboard, mouse, monitor, or OS.

No, no one does, because it isn't out. I don't think any pc in the world can guarantee 60fps in a modern mmo at maxed settings anyway. There will always be a time when there are just too many people, effects, monsters etc.

You want an estimate? 800-1000 will get you a good i5/i7, high end gpu, ssd, 8gigs of good ram and other decent parts to finish that computer. This is basically the highest you should reasonably go to play games at 1080p non 3d. I just built that machine.

Ok thanks, that is around the cost I was expecting.

I'm running the beta on a Lenovo Y500 with dual SLI and have absolutely no problem with the game at max (and it's only about a $700 laptop,, gaming laptop, but a laptop none the less).

I pre-ordered the game for PS3 since i didn't think i could afford a computer to run the game but the price of this laptop seems very reasonable. Would you recommend the laptop as a good gaming laptop? I find myself suddenly contemplatinng buying this laptop if I can keep the price under $1000.

if your upper limit is 1000 I'd recommend this:

My older brother has one, and recently got me one for my bday and it can run every game I have @ max (stuff like Skyrim/Tomb Raider/witcher 2/Dark souls/ etc...)including the beta of FF14

This one looke great too. Oh decisions, decisions. I have my PS3 and got a keyboard for it. It just comes down to what i want to do. Play on my 55" TV with a remote and keyboard, or on a new laptop with a mouse and keyboard, while still being able to watch TV during typical MMO downtime? hmmmm

Hook up PC to TV, use PS3 controller and flip to TV during downtime.

best of both worlds.

pretty much everyone who commented in this thread has no idea what the word max means

your FPS will determined by how many players and enemy characters are moving on screen and how fast the SERVER responds, as well.

remember, your GPU is the most important if you are being serious about wanting to run max you need to step up with a 400$ graphic card, nothing less than a 670 is worth talking about.
Once SLI/Crossfire is native, you should consider that route.

FFXIV:ARR is heavily CPU based per the benchmark but you will only need an i5 or higher.

However, spending 1000$ on a PS3 game is a joke.
save your money and just turn down shadows a notch or something.
