  1. Been doing a bit more slayer today, and boy do I love gargoyles. About halfway through the task though my entire block had a power outage, so when I logged back on I was sure I'd be back in fally with only 3 items. Turns out all was good however, and I hauled in 3 black mystic tops and a granite maul. Now 69k away from 85 slayer.

  3. Whew, so I've been busy this weekend but I have managed to compelte a number of quests, of note WGS. With the lovely experience boost from it I gained this level: Through the other numerous quests I got a few levels as well, in agility, herblore, summoning and crafting (I think).
  4. Ok, so today I did some more slaying. Gargoyles seem easier to kill than I remembered. I also got a granite maul out of them too :) Did the new quest too, which bumped me up to 67 hunter.
  5. Guess what my next 99 will be... Finished my 50th consecutive slayer task, which meant I had enough points for that slayer helmet. So that is that short goal completed. Onwards to moar slayer! Also, note to self: I must check out that summoning skill. I heard it's pretty handy.
  6. Why, thank you. RS seems to be welcoming me back too, considering I've gotten nothing but good slayer tasks since about the last 10 or so. Also, ending this day a level:
  7. If Jagex was to release a skill called necromancy, I'd have just gained 12 levels in it. To all those who don't know me (a.k.a everyone) I'm back from an extremely long and abrupt hiatus from RS since 07. My, how the world changes.
  8. I see - it's a prebuilt. Problem with upgrading one of them is that they tend to use power supplies that only just cover components that come with the pc. You would probably have to upgrade psu as well, because any decent gfx card nowadays would draw more power than a 2400. I'd recommend a Corsair VX450 and a Radeon 4850 - prices would vary depending on where you live. Edit: I forgot to ask, what's the resolution of your hdtv? 1080p or 720p?
  9. That card is the low budget end of the 2000 series. I wouldn't even consider it for gaming really, especially if you want to use a tv with a high resolution. Could you post the rest of your specs so we can see what you could upgrade to.
  10. As is said by everyone else, both mice share the one cursor. Reminds me of times back in school when I'd plug wireless mice into other people's computer and start moving it randomly. They'd say 'What the...? Sir I think I have a virus!' Hilarious.
  11. Sounds good. Perhaps for rules a person has to include all computer peripherals in one picture? Maybe a form to fill out giving general specs of the pc (e.g. processor, grpahics card, etc)?
  12. Looks like the computer he stated buying comes with a 19" monitor, so the max resolution will be 1440*900. Even then it would be hard put to get what most most people consider adequete framerates (>30) at Very High settings. It would probably run at High settings quite comfortably though.
  13. 1st option has a low end gpu from 2 generations of video cards ago (which wasn't a very good generation anyway) and both 2nd and 3rd computers you chose have integrated gpus, which perform pathetically for any modern game. Really, I'd look for something with more grunt, but as snipersas asked, are you willing to assemble your own pc? You'll get a lot more performance per dollar that way. But if it really came down to it, the 1st option is best and should be able to play Orange Box (lowest settings + resolution), but not well.
  14. I believe the speed setting differs from brands. When I got my 4850 fan speed was at 27% and I've known other people to have as low 20%. 4850/70 are built to handle high temps (tjc of 120 degrees I believe) but you also got to consider other pc parts, that aren't meant to handle such high temps. You can up the fan speed, and I did to lower temps to around 50 degrees (setting fan speed at 50%) but then noise level does come into consideration. Looking at that graph, 4850s @ around 6-70W? That seems a little too low to me. Anyways, power consumption is really only a minor consideration in the grand scheme of things, but a consideration nonetheless.
  15. It really depends on what you consider most important in a graphics card. This generation ATI's offering (4850, 4870/X2) beat Nvidia's (260, 280 gtx) in terms of price/performance. But, the ATI's run hotter and consume more electricity when idle. Personally I'd go for a 4850 or 4870.
