A good enough computer for scaping?

Post by OSRS Hailey on Sun Jun 04, 2017 10:56 pm

Hi all!

It has been over a week of being without a computer, and because I miss you all so much, I have decided to purchase a desktop, while my laptop gets fixed.

I do not know too much about specs, but am hoping maybe one of you do!  These are the specs.. my question is whether or not it'll work to scape on!

Thanks

Dell Optiplex 3010
3.2GHz Core i5-3470
8GB 1600 MHz DDR3
1TB HDD
Radeon HD 7470
Windows 10 Pro.

Looking forward to logging back on soon, hopefully within a week!

In all honesty... If the hardest thing this computer will ever need to do is run RS... I think you're most definitely going to be in the clear Wink The Radeon HD 7470 isn't meant for gaming but meets all the minimum requirements for even RS3 and osrs is even easier to run.

Can't wait to see you back on! I need someone to pull me away from GE for bossing!!!

Essentially what Goat said. You can run OSRS on even like a decade old computer. I've run rs on like a 7 year old laptop. You shouldn't really consider RS when buying a computer because anything can run it Razz. The specs you mention are definitely good enough.

I've got a $150 junk laptop and it runs OSRS just fine, you could probably run OSRS on a raspberry pi and a smart fridge.

Haha thanks for the replies all. Last question.. if the desktop is not set up for WiFi. . Would it be better to buy one of those USB WiFi adapters or have a tech install the WiFi adapter inside the tower? Not sure if I'll be able to use Ethernet. I just don't want to constantly disconnect

Well the 'better' option is to have the wifi adapter within but if that's not possible a cheap and easy fix is the usb wifi adapter. So it's your convenience. I'd prefer the adapter inbuilt though.

The desktop we have in our home is an old rig with updated graphics card and memory, unfortunately no inbuilt network adapter...
It has been running the same USB Wifi adapter for a three years now, no problems with it at all Smile

If you just need something for RS this should be fine
