    XIV @ lowest settings?

    Basically, 1500 was the recommended score on benchmark to even be playing the game. I think I scored ~1300, but I meet/beat the min specs they listed a few days ago when they announced the release date, so I was wondering if you guys think I'd be able to play (not even flawless, but just what I'd consider playable; little lag is fine but not 2 second delay on macros, ect) with my specs.

    I was wondering the same thing earlier today, but cream are you sure you got ~1300 on Low settings? I have a dual core P8700 2.5 ghz, same ram as you (4 gigs), and a ati mobility radeon HD 4570 (still 512 megs though), but I only managed a ~800 on low

    edit: think I'm rounding up; pretty sure it was closer to 750

    hmm, now I'm concerned... :/ or maybe the jump from 4570 to 4670 was just that good.

    His laptop has an integrated chipset, aka the worst possible thing ever.

    Might be possible to play in lowest spec/lowest details but I wouldn't bet on it.
