Website: PugChecker

June 9, 2009

Check out the new PUG Checker.

PUG is the short form for Pick Up Group.
Means, you don’t have a good friends list, or not even a guild. So you would need to PUG. I do it a lot. Since I have both a tank and a healer on 80 can do the important parts. Given speed to the run with the tank or make sure there is enogh heal on the tank. (let some DD die if necessary)

Equipment 24′ Monitor and a new System

May 15, 2009

So finally the monitor arrived. And let me say it is huge. And it is great. 1900*1080 Wide Screen. Amazingly you really have to look from one side of the monitor to the other. Grrr, how sweet.
The next steps will be:

My wife wants to have our laptop, which is currently our fastest PC. Something like Intel Dual Core P something. I am able to at least display most things in a good results, but I am pretty sure that this wont be the case with the old Pentium PC. I think this one is nearly 6 years old and now it is time for a new one.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Box, Sockel AM3 213,96 €
MSI 790FX-G65, Sockel AM3, ATX, PCIe 114,90 €
XFX RADEON HD 4890 1GB DDR5 PCI-E 2.0 204,98 €
Samsung HD502IJ, 500GB, 16MB 47,00 €
NZXT Guardian 921, ATX, 83,74 €
4GB-Kit Corsair Twin3X4096-1600C9DHX DDR3, CL9 71,07 €
LG GH22NS30/NS40 Retail black SATA 29,65 €
BE Quiet! Straight Power 600 Watt / BQT E6 85,74 €
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit SP1 – SB-Version 82,75 €

So I will make the order today. The whole system will cost me 1000 Euro. But afterwards I will have my first high end PC and I am curious to find out who this will enhance my game play. Will thinks load faster, will I be able to see more? Will my spell get lower delay to whatever reason.

At least I will have a test scenario at home.
In my eyes still a large amount of money.
