If you are building your own computer it might seem like a no-brainer when it comes to choosing your CPU. The CPU is your computer processing unit and is truly the brain of your computer responsible for the fast movement of data and tasks.
So what’s the no-brainer? If I’m building a computer I’m heading to Intel, right? Not so fast. AMD also fits the needs of gamers quite well.
It is an industry given that Intel makes the fastest processors on Earth. But while that factor is huge AMD has made a positive impression on the gaming community with lower process prices and near Intel performance.
If you are building a computer both Intel and AMD is user-friendly and can be tweaked. In the current market, both AMD and Intel processor technology should remain where it is for next few years at least. So don’t worry about your processor going obsolete tomorrow.
When looking at new processors for your gaming computer build, keep your eyes on gigahertz (GHz). A gaming computer, which needs to
One of the ultimate highs you can achieve as a gamer is sitting back and playing your favorite title on your computer. I don’t mean a store-bought system, I mean your own, well thought out, chose my components, radical design and look dream machine. Unfortunately, that dream never becomes a reality for most. Many gamers think building a computer involves massive technical, mechanical and computer science skills. Nothing could be more untrue!
Believe it or not having the fun and satisfaction of choosing your graphics card, processor, power supply, motherboards, RAM, hard drive and a case will not lead to a final installation disaster.
You won’t need a soldering gun, sophisticated testing devices or worry about a hospital trip via electrocution! Most of the parts in your home-made computer build will quickly snap together. A few screws will need to be tightened, so if you can use a simple screwdriver you are golden.
The most difficult technical task you may encounter could involve applying some thermal paste between your CPU and heat sink unit. If that task gives
Promotional products can be an exceptionally useful tool for any company. Once you choose the product you feel is the right match for your particular customer base, it can provide you with a host of benefits, helping ensure your customers think of you when it comes time to placing an order for products or services that you provide.
The first benefit you are going to find when it comes to choosing promotional memory sticks is that you enjoy improved brand visibility. As your customers make use of the memory stick in their daily work and home lives, your name is there on display. This means when they use it at work, your company is showcased on their desk, at home in their home office. This ensures that your name is constantly on their mind, which can improve sales moving forward and ensure you are always the first call they make when they need items that you supply.
Another reason you will want to consider promotional memory sticks to boost your brand is that it can help you reach your audience with ease. Promotional memory sticks are the
Computers are everywhere. They do not need fixing as they all come fully equipped to run smoothly. They come in all sizes. Buying one is simple and easy especially when you know what type of computer you are looking for. Some people have one, two maybe even three computers in their home. What a nice way to search for items you may need from the convenience from your home.
Routers are another important part of technology that has developed well. They are in every electronic store you can imagine. What an advantage it is that we can have a device that organizes and protects our internet use. When your computer browsing different websites the router will send traffic to and from where it’s needed. At the same time using encryption to protect your information from hackers.
There are many scary moments of where someone personal information was stolen. But the bringing of WEP and other protection methods of internet use has been a great way and advantage to the PC user. Being on a personal home PC should be
When a hard drive disaster occurs, many factors are looked at in order to rescue the drive. You must find out what the disaster is and which computers can have it, what tools are needed to recover the drive and how to prevent it.
Firstly, there are many ways a hard drive can crash. The point of a hard drive is storage, and if a crash occurs there is a chance of losing everything on your computer. Whether it’s a PC or Mac, hard disks work the same way. The difference is the size or how much storage it can carry. A crash can occur through many ways such as worn out circuitry, misuse, a virus or malfunction. Although a hard disk is designed to die after a long time of usage, the life of the drive can decrease if mishandled, over used or if there is a wiring fault where the head and logic board are connected. When disasters such as these happen, the way to solve the problem is to rescue the drive’s data.
Another component to a
First question is what software are you using for your business? If you’re using Microsoft Office, an accounting package of some sort, and any other locally installed software you’ll need to know what the system requirements are for each software package. The good news is nearly every software package will either have requirements listed on the box or it can easily be found online.
Also think about how many of the applications you use are “Cloud” based meaning they don’t run on your computer but are typically websites that you go to in your browser and login. These don’t have much if any system requirements on your PC as nothing needs to run on your computer. If your entire suite of business applications is online, then you can save a lot of money by purchasing a computer with lower specs.
As a good baseline here’s what I’d recommend for an entry level, mid-range and high performance PC. Note by the time you read this, technology has likely already changed. You’ll want to get an i3 processor as an entry level PC, an i5 processor for a mid-range (most
Cooling fans are an essential competent for all types of electronics and electronic cabinets, as these items stop equipment from overheating and therefore ensure that equipment works optimally and does not suffer from any negative effects from heat damage.
With that said, it is also essential to put in place covers on your cooling fans for your electronics cabinet. Covers serve an important purpose and are therefore an important piece of kit to have installed. Currently, they come in a range of different materials including metals and plastic, ensuring that there is a cover to match each different type of fan.
Firstly, it is important to note that these fan covers can prevent damage to the fan itself. In an area that is unattended – or on the contrary is very busy – it is possible for fans to get damaged if they are left without any kind of protection. This can include certain items accidentally striking the fan when it is or is not operational.
If a fan were to become damaged, this could have negative consequences
A storage server is a type of server used to store and manage digital data and acts as a backup server to store backup data. A storage server will be used for storing both small and large amount of data over a shared network. Although the need for storage is evident, it is not always clear which solution is right for your organization. There are a variety of options available, the most prevalent are direct-attached storage (DAS), network-attached storage (NAS) and storage area networks (SAN). Choosing the right storage solution can be as personal and individual decision. There is no one right answer for everyone. Instead, it is important to focus on the specific needs and long-term business goals of your organization. Several key criteria to consider include:
1 – Capacity
2 – Performance
3 – Scalability
4 – Availability & reliability
5 – Data protection
6 – IT staff and Resources available
7 – Budgets concern
DAS (Direct Attached Storage):
Direct Attached Storage (DAS) is a digital storage device that is attached directly to a server or
The internet and the numerous quality office stationery suppliers that can now be found online means that it is easier than ever before for businesses to find what they need for the office environment, ranging from printer cartridges right through to reams of printer paper, pens, computer parts, and many other accessories and items.
However, buying online does not come without its risks. It is very easy to make mistakes when buying certain items that have to have certain specifications, and it is also hard to ascertain the quality of items before you buy. In addition to this, it is often difficult to know who is a reputable supplier before you actually place your order.
With this in mind, it is important to keep a few things in mind when you buy certain stationery products. Some of the products that you should be careful about buying online are printer cartridges. The reason for this is that printer cartridges can be particularly costly, and certain aspects such as quality and price can have a significant impact on your business.
Printers have become increasingly popular in both the home and the office. While using a printer, you should also know about the various operating information and printing equipment which comes along.
There are mainly two types of cartridges, namely, toner cartridge and ink cartridge. It is important to use the right type of cartridge to avoid harmful damages to the printer.
A toner cartridge is used in laser printers and contains a fine powder which can be magnetically charged. This fine toner powder is a mixture of carbon, plastic particles and black or other coloring agents which helps in making the actual image on the paper. Thousands of pages can be printed from a laser printer using a single toner cartridge. Printer companies usually recommend using their specific cartridges to ensure the highest rate of functionality.
It is important to buy a cartridge which is compatible with your laser printer. You can also buy a remanufactured toner cartridge at a lower price than the new one. There are mainly 4 types of toner cartridges available:
– OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) – It is
You have just come back from your holidays, you dust off your printer, pop in a camera memory card and set off printing your pictures only to find your printer isn’t working properly. Now before writing your printer off, here are a few tips and ideas to help prolong your printer lifespan and to get it working perfectly again.
Keep It Clean
You would think this is a pretty obvious point, but it is amazing how many people neglect to clean their printers.
Everything needs a clean now and again to keep it working properly, especially printers. In order to aid with the printing process, ink and toner contain additives such as wax, drying agents and lubricants all of which, expectantly, get into all the little cracks of the printer after long print jobs. A build-up of this will cause mechanical parts to stick and seize and cover important sensors in your printer.
The best way to clean your printer is to first turn it off. Next you will need a small brush (A clean, fine Bristle paint brush works well) to clean off excess
Utilizing a hub is the slightest costly approach to associate PCs together. A hub is a basic gadget that goes on data parcels from one PC to the various PCs it coordinates with. Every PC gets the data and unravels in the event that it was implied for it or not.
This works fine to network a couple of PCs that won’t be exchanging vast bundles of data. Data bundles must be exchanged each one in turn through the hub or impacts happen. At the point when a few PCs take a stab at exchanging data in the meantime, it backs off the exchange rate for everybody on the LAN (neighborhood).
A hub is a straightforward bit of hardware. It serves as an exchange gadget that just take data got through one port and sends it out through the various ports. It has a layer one capacity for exchanging data.
A hub utilizes a telecast model. At the point when utilizing a hub, on the off chance that anybody on the system is downloading a vast record, it
For the last couple of decades, hiring a professional to shoot video, in any event, has become the norm. Be it weddings, birthdays, baby showers or any event, everyone wants to preserve their memories in the best way possible and what better way that to capture the whole occasion in a video?
VHS is history
Seriously, when was the last time when you watched a movie on a VHS tape? It’s been probably years now. In reality, companies have long stopped manufacturing VHS tapes because it’s the age of digital discs.
Some of the vital benefits of DVDs over VHS are:-
- Picture quality is much better: The picture quality is much higher than that of old video tapes. In theory, the vertical resolution of these discs are double to that of video tapes.
- Sound quality is second to none: The sound quality of a disc output is multiple times higher than that of conventional video tapes. Be it Dolby digital or 7.1 surround sound, there has been an immense amount of technical advancement in this field. But
I remember when I first saw a multiple monitor workstation, the crisp display, the ability to work on multiple projects and the ease of accommodating and monitoring a number of windows at once (and the bragging rights) seemed like the stuff of dreams, I knew I was in love and wanted my own setup right there and then and I eventually ended up getting one but was it really worth it?
In this article, I’m going to discuss some of the reasons why you’re better off spending your earned money on an ultrawide monitor rather than having two or three displays side by side.
Reason # 1: The Productivity Myth
It seems plausible to get more work done on several displays, having each screen dedicated to a single window is a multitaskers delight but does it really get the job done in less time? Gary Keller in his book, The One Thing, mentions the fact that we lose 28% of an average workday while juggling multiple tasks at once. Your brain is only capable of focusing on so
Nowadays there is a large number of alternatives when it comes to mini-PCs, many of which are barebones that you have to assemble yourself. Of course, these fetch a lower price and are often preferred by some people. Other mini-PCs come ready-to-use with all the parts and even the operating system pre-installed. Of course, their price is higher, though not by much, something that deters some people. So, what alternative should you go for?
If you are a hard-core IT enthusiast (the type of person who would prefer Linux or some other more esoteric OS, while also do computer-related DIY projects for fun), then a barebone may be the alternative for you. Although turning a barebone into a fully functional mini-PC is no easy task, it is still manageable and may be even fun for those super geeks out there. Plus you get to choose what components to put in your machine, something that some people like to have control over.
Nevertheless, if you are not a super power-user and care more about having a fully-functional and accountable PC,
When it comes to must haves for me concerning mechanical keyboards I always recommend the MKC Zinc Gold Tone Keyset. While the set can be a bit pricy at $50 for the set of just 37 keys to me it was well worth the investment. The first benefit you get from the keys is simply the look of them. Because they arrive individually wrapped they have no scratches or blemishes on the keys. Then when you contrast the keys to the plastic ones on your keyboard these shine and reflect all the light making them look very beautiful. Then the feel of the keys is much more superior to any plastic counterpart. Although they can be a bit cold at first touch it’s never an uncomfortable temperature. The smoothness of the keys also feels much nicer than plastic keys that usually are slightly textured. Even with the lack of texture your fingers don’t slide all over the keys and it’s still easy to use. These keys also provide a physical benefit along with an aesthetic
Several years ago, I found myself wanting a better mouse. My computer at the time was a Mac Pro provided by my employer, and the aluminum keyboard and Mighty Mouse that came with it were downright awful. The laptop-style, low profile keyboard was terrible to type on and the mouse had a tiny ball for scrolling, which would get gummed up very easily.
At first, I simply traded them in for a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse set which I used for quite some time. It was a basic rubber dome keyboard and standard wireless optical mouse. They were okay. They worked. Ultimately, I wanted something better.
I noticed that my boss would try out other mice, but ultimately return to his old trackball. He explained that it was more ergonomic and he found it easier to use. Unfortunately, the model he used had long been discontinued and regularly sold for over $300 on eBay. Too rich for me. But I figured there must be some modern equivalents.
So I went on a search. My initial requirements were simple. It needed to cost less than $50
Except for one LED (Light Emitting Diode) computer monitor I am typing on right now I’ve never had a LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) computer monitor last over 5 years. The LED monitors are usually 15″ and very expensive for their size in the range of $500 to $900. My 15″ square LED monitor cost $400 around 10 years ago but is still going strong. My 25″ wide screen LCD monitor just went black on me after 3 years so I’m faced with picking between another LCD with better image quality or an LED that is much more reliable.
I’ve seen LED monitors in larger sizes but a quality LED monitor in a larger size is very expensive. You can get off brand LED monitors for a lot less but they use cheap electronic components so their reliability wouldn’t be that great. All the LCD monitors and monitors I’ve owned in the past before the flat panel LCDs have only lasted 3 to 5 years then “Poof” they go black.
Flat panel T.V. sets use the same technology as computer screens as far as “Backlit Displays” and “Pixelation”.
ASUS VG248QE MONITOR DESIGN AND FEATURES
The ASUS VG248QE Monitor adopts the latest ‘ROG SWIFT’ styling, with slender bezels. Its stand features the novel ‘Light In Motion’ red ring that surrounds the neck of the stand and the ROG motif too, as was evident on PG27AQ. It is also equipped with a joystick or JOG button that intuitively regulates the On Screen Display menu system. The stand of this monitor is adjustable, with swivel, tilt, pivot and height modes.
The ASUS VG248QE possibly incorporates the customary AU Optronics M240HW01 V8 as there is no suitable alternate. It comes with a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, TN or Twisted Nematic panel type, as also a matte screen surface that handles glare effectively. With VG248QE, this is overclocked to an excellent 180Hz and in tandem with G-SYNC 30 to 80Hz), do away with tearing and stuttering from the rather conventional frame, as well as possible refresh rate mismatches on Nvidia GPUs.
There is also a WLED backlight with a typical maximum imbalance of 350 cd/m². All these go to make
