GPU for Final Fantasy XIV

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I got this game today and I'm having a blast running around with my lalafell thaumaturge. The downside is that my AMD APU is not powerful enough for a pleasant experience graphically speaking (nor is it smooth).

I've turned the settings down and even playing at 720p, but it's still in the low 30's and even lower when streaming.

Which GPU is the least expensive, yet offers good enough performance for this game at 1080p? I kinda like streaming to twitch.tv as well, so I prefer something that's able to do both.

I've been waiting for the new AMD series as you can see from my previous thread, but the prices have dropped alot on the current cards and I really want better performance right now tongue.gif

Any tips? The 7850 has a very nice pricetag, while the 7870 is so close to the 7950 that I haven't even considered it.

Edit: My PSU has a 6+2 pin and a 6 pin connector, so can't use any of those beefy 8+8 pin GPU's.

Just wanted to update this thread by saying that I've ordered a 7870 which was on sale for 240$. To make a comparison:
7850: 240$
7870: 240$ on sale
7950: 303$ on sale
7970: 429$ on sale

Prices are high due to currency differences, it's actually not that expensive, but 300+$ is just out of my budget.
