Guide to : Budget Gaming PC 16/10/14

Hitchhiker’s Guide to Budget PC!

Such unique originality in the title!

This PC is for :

– People on budget
– Starters, first time buyers

As I assume you are new to PC building, I selected the products that are available in Amazon, shipping globally and directly from Amazon. You don’t need to be a techie to have an Amazon account.
I will link each recommended product with an Amazon price and link. Prices fluctuate in the market therefore please check the price before purchasing any products – the states pricing in the post might be outdated.
Getting PC components in sites like NCIX or Newegg is recommended of they ship to your address.

CPU

Intel Pentium G3258 : $70 Amazon
This is God sent. 
Best budget CPU period. This chip overclocks out of this planet. This is a gift from Intel.
Note : Don’t get feared by the world ‘overclock’. Simple overclocking can be super simple these days and anyone can do it.

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Hitch Hiker’s Guide to Mechanical Keyboards
Don’t Panic
So much originality in the title.

This guide will..

  1. Introduce you to the world of mechanical keyboards
  2. Help you decide which keyboard to buy
  3. Wall of text in yo face.

~Intro~

Back in 1850… You now expect me to say that mechanical keyboards existed back then. The truth is, I don’t bloody know either.
The oldest mechanical keyboard I know is IBM’s M-series, which has a incredible self-defense function mounted.

There are various types of crazy switches, and since this being a guide for FIRST buyers, I’d like to recommend two types of switches :

Nothing much right?
Cherry MX keys have a zillon types of keys btw.

Allow me to fill you in with famous/popular Cherry MX keys and a Topre key :)

My GPU failure story part 1 of 2 : How to detach your GPU

It was one day, one rainy day, when the horrific incident occurred..

My GPU..
Its temperature at no where near half load..

SHOT UP ENOUGH TO BOIL WATER.

My GPU fans failed. It took me a while to realize – I noticed game lagged unusually more, I thought it was simply lack of optimization.
ima nub.

ANYWAYZ

I was SO lazy and decided to cheap out, leaving the case open and directly blowing a fan into the components.

How to fix : Web pages failing to load on computers and devices! (Fixing DNS problems)

I personally had horrible experience with my ISP’s DNS,
I don’t even want to talk about it. It failed majority of the time.

If your browser says ‘DNS Error’ and webpages will not load,
If you need to Refresh (F5) many times before the webpage loads,
If you cannot see images in the website and the page looks weird,
If your Appstore cannot download apps through Wi-Fi,
If your Google Playstore fails do download an app through Wi-Fi,
this is the fix for you.

There are two ways of doing this,
Do Fix1 if you have no clue how to navigate settings of your router.
Do Fix2 if you clearly know what you are doing with your router settings.

After AGES of using AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400,
I finally received my AMD Phenom II X4 955 (95W) + 1GB RAM and successfully installed it :)

Its THE best CPU I can install for my old mainboard, which is M56S-S3 from Gigabyte! (I still can’t believe phenom fits into AM2 socket..!)

For those of you who have same mainboard and wish to upgrade, make sure you upgrade your bios to f6h and buy Phenom II x4 955 95W. 125W won’t fit.

You can always check out your mainboard’s compatible CPUs in the official websites :)

DSC_0386CHAOS. WTF. A RAM SLOT EMPTY.

DSC_0387CHAOS PUSHED AWAY LOL >< Installed a ram :3
