      Out of curiosity, what's your budget anyway? I mean if you're going to drop a few hundred on a new PC--if you show even the slightest interest in PC gaming (as in, you may or may not jump on FF14 after 2.0 launches next year or whatever) you can probably find/get someone to build you a lower-end "gaming" rig for roughly $500-600. Definitely above your range of $350, but if you're willing save up a bit longer...it would be a better investment long term.

      Still, if you're certain that all you'll ever play is FFXI and do regular office work, then yeah any cheapy pc from a big box store will do.

      The $350 build is a good start. You may want to purchase a low-end card, like a GTS 450 or something, and drop it in to replace the on-board graphics. In the future, you'll want to upgrade the GPU, CPU, and RAM. When you're ready to build your own, you can purchase a better mother board and drop all your upgraded pieces into it.

      Pretty much this tbh. I don’t play any intense computer games. I tried to but it seems every time I see a new game that I want (which happens every 6-12 month at best), I need to upgrade my computer because bits became obsolete.

      My general uses are office things (word/excel…etc), surfing and FFXI….and maybe some addicitinggames.com stuff. Had I had a job that required more intricate work (as well as paid more  ), I’d probably look into a much better computer. But for the time being, a cheapy pc that can handle ffxi is what I want.

      Anyway, thanks for the advice guys, I will do what you suggest (video card wise).

      CHILL!!! Found my Ultimate collection 2008 install disk. i had like 20k files to update last night geez!!
      i popped in for 5 minutes this morning. all my macros...gone. reloaded the ones i saved on the server. turns out last time i saved them was like 2009 or so.
      All those macros are 75 gear or less. Still had 'charm' as a macro. No Nin or War macro sets either ><.

      So basically all macros gone.

      i'll be around tonight but not Fri/Sat and not till late on Sunday...just my luck.
