Could we have the number relating to each option visible?

ie: Unread posts since last visit - 56
     New replies to your posts - 3

It can be even easier, why not have the 2 links only appear if there is something new?

That would be how I do it.

I'd actually do this:

If there's unread or new, show the link, like so:

Show New Posts (x)
Show Unread Posts (y)
