  • Pc Games From CD To Internet, par Stefanof Orenza, 1er mai 2017

    lundi 1er mai 2017 :: Always Right :: RSS
    Playing games has become one of the favorite time passes for many. More and more games are being introduced to engage us. The game varies from a normal shooting game to attractive and interactive 3D games. This was not the case a few years back. If the technology has not increased this much, we would not be having such varieties in PC games. We would have been got stuck in DOS games. Thanks to the growth in technology.
    A quick recap of the vast changes that have taken place in the gaming industry will let you understand how we have moved to the internet.
    Classic AOL CDs

    CD: This is how we have started our journey of playing games. A lot of games were available on CD. You have to insert the Disc into your computer. Certain games could be played directly from the CD and certain games allow you to play only when it is downloaded from your disc. The main advantage is that you get a complete version of the game. The other advantages are you can use your CD on any number of PCs to download and you can download the game even when it got erased from your computer. The downside is that most of the CD games hold only a single game in it.
    Download from the Internet: With the development of the internet, many programmers came forward to write codes for developing games that can be downloaded from the internet.
    These types of games were initially only a few but even that has grown nowadays. You can download any kind of game from the internet now. If you like to experience the DOS mode of games, even that is available over the internet at places such as gog.com. Some of the downloadable types of games from online are adventures, educational, Sports and lots more.
    The biggest advantage in downloading games from the internet is that, once you download the games from the internet, you can play them right from your computer without any connection to the net.
     
    World of Warcraft, a famous Online Game

    Online Games: Apart from the internet games, there are certain games that could be played online directly. It is enough if you connect your system to the internet, you need not download anything from the internet. The main advantage of playing online is that you can play the variety of games at any time. You need not get stuck in a single game as you as do in the downloadable games.
     
    Across Network: Another interesting thing that our internet technology has provided us is that one could play with other players online, across the network. For example, consider the game of chess, two players from the different location can play the game. Here, you can choose from the players who are available online to play the game. Isn’t this great? You can even ask your friends to come online and can enjoy playing with them.
    Connect to TV: One may feel that laptop screens are much smaller to play with. In that case, you can even connect your PC to your giant HD TV screen and enjoy playing it.
    From Compact Disc to the internet the gaming industry has come a long way. Let us wait and watch what the future holds for us. Lire la suite Stefanof Orenza
  • How To Build A Powerful Gaming Desktop For Less Than $1000, par Stefanof Orenza, 1er mai 2017

    lundi 1er mai 2017 :: Always Right :: RSS

    Getting a gaming desktop under $1000 does not mean a huge amount of compromising with regard to your requirements; you just need to be smart about where you spend your money. You will also need to do some work putting together the parts for your gaming desktop. Many stores offer you to pick the parts and then they build it for you, or if you prefer portability you can always go for a gaming laptop in the 800 – 1000 dollars price range. Do you still want to build your own affordable gaming desktop computer? Let’s start then.
    A gaming desktop needs the following
    1. CPU: This is one of the first choices you have to make. The two most important items on the list are the CPU and the Video Card. Depending on what is more important to you, processing speed or visuals, you need to decide which one you will spend more on. We suggest the Intel Core i5-6500 processor which is available at around $205. It has a clock speed of 3.2GHz and comes with an inbuilt cooler. If you want more processing power, try Core i5-6600 with a clock speed of 3.3GHZ for $225.
    2. Video/Graphics card: We recommend ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 or the slightly more expensive ($20) Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970. Zotac has 4GB GDDR5 video memory and supports a max resolution of 2560×1600 and 4X display monitors. It is a powerful video card for those who enjoy great graphics which are essential for those first person role playing games.
    3. Motherboard: Recommended motherboard is MSI Computer ATX DDR4 Motherboard B150A GAMING PRO. It has 6x SATA3 Ports and DDR4 RAM. It also has 6 USB 3.0 ports. For connecting to the solid state drives a new M.2 slot is required.
    4. Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB is a trusted brand for memory cards. It has a 16 GB DDR3 memory and a 1600GHz clock speed. It is compatible with all the latest CPUs and Motherboards.
    5. Hard Drive: Toshiba 3.5-Inch 2TB is an SATA interface 7,200 RPM desktop series drives which operates at speeds up to 6 GB/s. It has all the additional storage space you need.
    6. Power Supply: EVGA 500 B1 80 has a high amperage multi-rail design for maximum power and efficiency. It has enough protection like over and under voltage protection and short circuit protection for all your other expensive parts. It also comes with a 3-year warranty.
    7. Optical Drive: Samsung Electronics 24xSATA Half Height DVD-Writer Internal Optical Drive is 1.5GBPS SATA burst transfer rate optical drive to run all the gaming DVDs that you enjoy.
    8. Case: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-01 Mid Tower Gaming Case is a stylish case which is builder friendly and has 2 x 140/120mm fans on the front and a LED light.
    9. Operating System: Windows 10 is the best OS for most gaming sessions in the market today.
    The total Cost of the build works out to
    CPUIntel Core i5 - 6500$205
    Video/Graphics cardZOTAC GeForce GTX 970$310
    MotherboardMSI Computer ATX DDR4 Motherboard B150A GAMING PRO$105

  • Reasons To Have A Fireproof Laptop Safe, par Stefanof Orenza, 1er mai 2017

    lundi 1er mai 2017 :: Always Right :: RSS
    A laptop has become a must in the present scenario in both our personal and professional life. More than us, this small and stylish handbook knows everything about us and our business. This shows how important it is to safeguard our electronic companion from external dangers. The first row of defense starts with us. We should first safeguard the laptop from common hazards like bad handling, spillages and misplace etc. but the highest protection is to be given is against fire.

    All our precious jewels are usually kept safe in a locker or the bank; while you don’t have to place your laptop in the bank, you can try and provide a fireproof safe at home. Reasons being;
    • Today’s world is a fast paced one where safety issues are very bleak. These electronic devices are designed in such a way that they can be easily transported to anyplace from anywhere by anybody and are exposed to all sorts of natural risks. Given that the device in question is our laptop, it takes our business and personal data with it, which is definitely worth protecting. Keep your laptop safe can be done with the help of fireproof safes. This will not only act as a shield for your expensive device and your critical data but also protect it from fire, spillages and other problems.
    • Networks of wires and cables form an important part of a house and these are constantly connected to electric power. There is always a chance of a short circuit or a fire break out in the house. In such a situation, the first thing that comes to mind is to save the important documents and valuables and we conveniently forget the big store of data and information on our laptops. But imagine if we had a fireproof safe? This would definitely save our laptops even in cases of extreme fire and the safe will ensure that our laptop and all our data remain intact.
    • These fireproof safes have multiple uses. They don’t stop with just preventing fire but also help you in cases of thefts. Most safes come with technological tracking options. If someone attempts to steal your laptop, then the tracking option is activated, which will help you locate your system. These fire-proof safe cases are small enough to fit in any part of the room and these are adaptable and portable enough to carry around if required. Not only can you rest easy about big disasters, these cases are handy places to stow your laptop as they provide maximum security and ensure your laptop is protected from all hazards big and small.
    • Is it enough to just own a fireproof safe? Will that safeguard your system from theft and fire? A simple lock and key safe will not provide enough protection, but if you get a safe that is password protected, and ensure your laptop is also password protected, you are providing your system with dual protection from theft. Nowadays there are safes that come with an electronic lock assisted by a four-bit mechanical key which is only with the user.

    The remarkable effects of tech changes in our lives:
    • Speaking of mobile technology that influences our lives, we tend to think of gadgets and devices and apps.
