    1. @pokestrike Nice, what're you getting?

      Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:37:48 UTC from web
      1. @zeldatra I don't know probably one of those small lap tops that are really light and hard to break, my sis got a terrible one that is mangled just bye one screw being loose

        Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:39:53 UTC from web
        1. @pokestrike If it's small it probably wont game well. You're gonna want at least 6-8 gigs of RAM and preferrably a Nvidia graphics card.

          1. @zeldatra @pokestrike If that can be helped, of course. Don't bite off more than you can chew.

            1. @zeldatra Hmm ok I just want one that can emulate ds games well so I can get a good play through of pokemon gen 4&5

              Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:43:46 UTC from web
              1. @pokestrike Oh, just emulators? Yeah, any old HP Pavilion off the shelf will probably do. 4 GB RAM is the most you'll need.

                Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:44:41 UTC from web
                1. @zeldatra Ok, so now I need a mane cast

                  Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:45:47 UTC from web
              2. @pokestrike @zeldatra (or the console itself)

                Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:45:17 UTC from web
                1. @mushi I don't own any good material that can record a ds game well, I guess I could bye a 3-ds capture card

                  Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:47:09 UTC from web
                  1. @pokestrike Ahahaaa capture-capable 3DSes are like $400 a pop

                    Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:48:19 UTC from web
                    1. @redenchilada oh, 400 dollars for a gaming thing, that must suck

                      Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:49:03 UTC from web
                    2. @redenchilada Wait what, I thought that it's a sd card that records 3-ds footage , I didn't know I had to buy a high tech 3-ds

                      Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:50:07 UTC from web
          2. @zeldatra My laptop games fine just with 4GB of RAM

            Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:44:08 UTC from web
            1. @redenchilada My Pavilion g4 does fine with 3 gigs, but as you said, not the newest, greatest games.

              Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:46:09 UTC from web
              1. @zeldatra Sonic Generations is apparently pretty rough on computers but I've managed to get it running (at like 640x480 but still)

                Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:47:45 UTC from web
                1. @redenchilada Right, you have to bump down the graphics, although that's probably more your graphics card's fault.

                  Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:48:47 UTC from web
                  1. @zeldatra Generations actually doesn't have any graphics options besides "turn off one shader option" which barely does anything.

                    Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:49:41 UTC from web
                2. @redenchilada Also, how many FPS?

                  Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:49:14 UTC from web
                  1. @zeldatra I wanna say the game runs 30FPS, but I'm not sure. I know if there's any lag it's readily visible as "the game runs in slow-motion" and the timer runs real time for the most part.

                    Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:50:50 UTC from web
          3. @zeldatra @pokestrike @redenchilada 4GB of ram is enough, 8GB is safe as a margin for upcoming years. Both Nvidia and ATI do their job properly, the difference is that ATI usually has an edge in performance but you need to build the computer around them, whilst Nvidia doesn't require that much planning, they are compatible with most systems.

            1. @nerthos I knew that this was gonna be some what complicated but I'm not good with technical jargan

              Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:54:13 UTC from web
              1. @pokestrike But I didn't even use "technical jargan"

                Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:54:56 UTC from web
                1. @nerthos Well what ever I'm not used to recording stuff because I was never aloud to download stuff so now that I can get the ability to do it I have no idea how it works

                  Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:56:53 UTC from web
                  1. @pokestrike Recording stuff is not my forte. Last time I had to I used fraps and then recompressed the file.

                    Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:58:24 UTC from web
              2. @pokestrike If you're just gonna play emulators, get anything that isn't a ChromeBook. Never, under any circumstances, get a ChromeBook.

                Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:55:44 UTC from web
                1. @zeldatra Oh hell no I'm not getting one of those cheap arse pieces of shiz waz those are terrible

                  Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:59:02 UTC from web
            2. @nerthos i thought all the cool guys were using over 10G

              Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:57:34 UTC from web
              1. @mushi Over 10GB is stupid unless you want to host some sort of server.

                Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:58:45 UTC from web
              2. @mushi Nobody actually needs more than 8GB of RAM at the moment unless they're running a server or something.

                Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:59:00 UTC from web
                1. @redenchilada @nerthos i've seen some guys here saying "looks i have 16G" so i thoug that was what people were suposed to have

                  Monday, 15-Apr-13 01:59:45 UTC from web
                  1. @mushi Nah, they're just buying for the sake of buying.

                    Monday, 15-Apr-13 02:04:11 UTC from web
                    1. @nerthos better, now i feel 8 times less bad for my compputer
