Hi I was playing FF14 on my ps3 and was having fun and then realized "Hey if this is fun now, how would it be on a PC that can run it at 60 frames instead of 25-20 and on M+keyboard"

So I was wondering if there was anyone else playing it at the moment that can run it at 60 on the best settings that can throw me their parts and the price range I would be spending on them. Also if it can run it at 60 I can expect it to run every other game pretty good right?

Yeah $800-1000 would get you something that would run most games at 1080p with 60fps on ultra settings.

Crysis 3 and Metro Last Light are the only glaring exceptions I can think of offhand. Well and Witcher 2 with ubersampling.

Eh...not quite. I would say high/ultra, and it's not going to be a constant 60 fps, you're going to see dips down - I'd say an average of 45-60 fps at high/ultra, more leaning toward ultra settings in MOST games for that price range.

Ahh that seems great for me! High is more than what I'm used to sadly D:

Also could this setup pull it off? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1Aw9O

Grabbed it off a user named 2Dhas_a_MIGRANE who's been posing it around the hardware section.

From what I can tell the only difference is just the cooling. Better performance? or does it just keep the CPU alive longer?

I want to know if it's going to run as well as what I was just told "high-ultra" around 60-35 frames consistently, cause if it doesn't I'll be pretty disappointed ._.

Both, better cooling gives you more leeway for overclocking (be it GPU or CPU), and if you use a modern Intel processor, better cooling will mean that you can have higher turbo boost clocks as I believe turbo boost operates based on available voltage and operating temperature.

Cool cool and if I do decide to get a different case how would I know if it everything fits alright? I don't want to end up buying pieces and then some not fitting forcing me to get different parts. :O

In either of those systems, I'd save $100 on the case and go with something at $50. I always go cheap on the case and have never had any problems with overclocks or anything.

Just make sure it's an atx case and not a micro atx.
