Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have a super-crappy Dimension 2400. I currently play Ultima Online and some other non-community games. By most standards I'm a casual gamer. I got this comp when the family workhorse blew up and I was desperate and broke. I'm currently working on RAM upgrades, I figure I can't go wrong there. I also want to upgrade the video card. These are my current system specs.
Celeron 2.4GHz CPU
256 Meg RAM (I just bought another gig)
Integrated Intel 82845G Graphics Controller
Its looking like UO is going to go down the drain for good by the time a year passes. (The new client release looks like ass and people are closing accounts right and left.) I'm a member of a very big guild on UO, and I really have only played for the past couple of years because of my guild. Several members are already playing WOW, and I'm rather interested in LOTR Online.
Is it even feasible that I could play either of these games on my system?
I would like to get a graphics card for less than $100 that would let me play both these games (I think LOTR has higher system reqs.)
