  4. Thanks ive been leaning towards a mac but not familiar with the workings of it. Im use to a pc. but i added it to the list of things to check out when i go to buy. Ive had dell computers only so far. But was thinking of going to best buy to see what they had.
  5. Welcome. It can be overwhelming at first. when i first signed up i was lost and left for a while but now im more comfortable with it. I started at help island. most people there are nice and helpful. If you see me inworld and i can help just ask.
  6. @rolig thanks so much for all your advice. will definately take all into consideration when purchasing.
  7. What about wireless in my own home? does that do better. i dont use wifi spots. also what resolution and refresh rates should i be looking for?
  8. what are the resolution and refresh rates i should be looking for?
  9. thanks all for your input. very helpful when i go shopping. @rolig loon im looking for my own for my bedroom. right now i share the desktop with my children and i wanted something to go in my bedroom. Thanks for all your help and input. good info to look into before i purchase.
  10. Im looking to spend less than $1000.
  11. Thanks much for responding. Can you explain why wireless is not good in this circumstance? also i want to get something to hook to my tv and use that as the monitor. What is your opinion on the tv for a monitor?
  12. Im looking to buy a new computer to hook up to my flat screen. My question is what is the best specs to look for? I love games like Sims 3,2 and 1. Also second life. I want to make sure what I get will be able to work for these types of games. Also, which would be better to get, a desktop or a laptop? Thanks much for responding. Can you explain why wireless is not good in this circumstance? also i want to get something to hook to my tv and use that as the monitor. What is your opinion on the tv for a monitor? @rolig what are the resolution and refresh rates i should be looking for? While it is certainly possible to get a TV screen that will do the job, most TV screens do not have the resolution or refresh rate that a good monitor designed for computer use will have.
  13. Ive seen ads like the ones you speak of on billboards. You could find one in a high traffic sim.
  14. Thanks for the help. Ive got it now. now off to put my pic up. ~crosses fingers~

    How do i take a pic of my avatar and put it for my profile pic? Also can you save pics of your avatar to photobucket? If so, how? Thank you for the help.
  18. Thank you for the links. they did clear things up for me, but still a little confused. Im not trying to be a creator at this time so thats ok. Im just trying not to cause lag thats all. Thanks again.
  19. Thank you for your help with my question. I would like to ask how do i know if something has too many prims and scripts and will cause lag?
  20. Yes i was asking because of what was posted in my other question. I dont want to purchase something and it causes lag for myself or others. Plus i here those words a lot and i wanted some clarification.
  21. Can someone explain how i check the scripts and prims on an item? also can you check these things before you purchase? Maybe this one should have been first but, can someone explain what scripts and prims are exactly? I kind of know but want to be sure.
  22. Thank you for that tip. I learned that lesson the hard way. I know better now. I use to just buy stuff that i thought looked good and then it wouldnt fit my avi ar looked just ugly on me. I would just delete it. Then i found out you could adjust the size and fit of things. I hate to think of the money i deleted. *hard learned lessons are not soon forgotten* Thanks again.
  23. Thank you, everything you said was very helpful. I never really thought of doing a google search for sl stuff. I thought maybe there was something where most venders were listed and then you can see from there what people say about there products and business practices. I never really noticed the review tab when i was looking at stuff on the marketplace. Thanks again for your help.
  24. I was wondering how and where do i check for the reputation of a seller? I found this shop curious kitties, and i love the hair styles. They also sell huds that change the color and or accents of the hair. Before i spend my money i would like to have some info to determine if its worth the investments. There are 3 huds available at 700L$ a piece. Also how and where do i review a product myself and check reviews of products? Thank you for all the assistance.
