If you haven't already, have you tried running the game in Windowed mode instead of Fullscreen? Also, have you tried disabling SLI since I've heard some people complain about multi-card setups with FFXIV. Also, check your configurations in the FFXIV Program Files folder to make sure everything is set properly.
On another note, to anyone who is now wearing or using any armour or weapons other than the starting pieces, invest in the crafting required to repair to items. My sheepskin harness is now up to 10,000gil to repair it so I need to find myself a Chainmail set so that I can fix it myself for cheap.
