they should probably show the real recommended, now these specs are the minimum (not that they are so high but still there's a huge difference between minimum and high settings for this game)

I realise my current rig could handle this easily but what processor and graphics card could I confidently drop down to while still being able to run this in max detail perfectly? I'm not exactly tech savvy with graphics cards :)

Well, for processor in order to run on max detail is 1.5GHz if I recall, however I would not drop below a video card with less than 64Mb in Video Memory.

Is there anyway to update this page? Because the RuneScape wiki and website both say that the requirements are a bit higher than this page does, probably due to updates pushed out by Jagex that improved graphics quality.
