    FFXI & video card question

    A friend of mine is looking to buy FFXI and play it on his laptop, but he's not sure if his video card will support it. He has a Mobility Radeon 7500, anyone have any experience with this card and FFXI?

    yes i have an ATI mobility card. it actually runs FFXI and WoW better than the 256MB ATI i had in my desktop. which is sad but cool for my lazy ass.

    I have that card in my 5y/o laptop that I use to run FFXI full time on.

    It works fine, but it's not the best thing out there ofcourse.

    god, fuck no. Mobility Radeon 7500 is like, one of the first mobile gpu's to come out for laptops.

    Unless your friend is paying $250-300 for that laptop, get something with a little more muscle.

    I got my dell D800 with 1gb ram and a GeForce 5650 (128mb ddr dedicated to the card itself) for a $800.

    It's an FX, yes, but it's as fast as a 9800pro or so.

    Well he already has the laptop, he's had it for a long time, so he's not getting a new computer... he ran the benchmark and score about 2050, somewhere we read that 1500+ score can run FFXI.

    Anybody wanna buy a 2-use world pass for us on Bahamut? haha

    Update your drivers. If that doesnt work, downgrade them.

    It's not a .dat issue, It's a graphical issue. On the same installation of XI, switching a 9800 ATI [driver cleaner, ect] and putting in a 5500 nVidia in caused this glitch to occur on my computer. .dat files don't change it.

    FFXI doesn't like nvidia geforce drivers. When I had one, I had the same graphical issues, and I had to downgrade to 56.something drivers to fix it.
