Works perfectly with budget graphics. All of Falcom's PC games work with shitty PCs.
Just for the sake of it, Felghana worked with: GeForce 2 MX/MX400 (64MB VRAM) Integrated GeForce 2 (32MB VRAM) Integrated Intel 82945G Express (128MB VRAM)
Ys Origin worked on those too. I've also tried on budget laptops and it worked on them too. The three computers that had those graphics cards all had 512MB RAM and shitty processors (single core Celeron and AMD Athlon XP clocking below 1.80 GHz).
If you happen to have problems with framerate, just lower quality, disable effects or lower your resolution.
After having bought and beat Ys Oath for PSP, then downloaded both Ys Oath & Origins off Steam, I so regret not having of played the XSEED/Steam version first. As it looks infinitely more playable and better graphics wise to me. Add in the official XSEED translation (and your supporting both XSEED & Falcom. I mean, if us fans hesitate to support these games, don't count on many more coming out), true wide screen support, exclusive Steam achivements, and the fact that it's only $5.oo.
I mean, seriously, I figure if your even a slight Ys fan, the $5.oo price would be the biggest reason to not even hesitate and just buy it. (But act now! As this sale is only until the 22 of this month! Same with the Origins game sale. So hurry, hurry, hurry!! Before you'll heavily regret it)

The better resolution of the PC version blows the PSP version out of the water. The second boss of the Lava zone looks like he was hit by the low polygon count stick the hardest to get him into the PSP version. Also all the sprites are well rendered. Might as well play it on the PC to really get to see them!
My opinion but PC is also better since it has no voices, no W-Boost, and no New Game+ abilities, keeping the true challenge of Inferno intact (at least on those last two)

Yes and no. The steam releases add widescreen support without stretching, something you won't get with the original english patched versions. Script wise xseed has made some changes, most for the better.
Overall the steam versions are quite a bit more polished, true widescreen, cleaned up script, less bugs/crashing.
