28th October 2020
"Are you in confusion regarding the accessories that might be essential for your desktop or PC? If yes, then don't worry! We got your back!"

Every PC comes with the basic accessories one needs for basic works while buying it. However, the basic accessories may become obsolete really soon and maybe a disadvantage for you while doing your work. Not every normal keyboard can handle fast typers and may not survive for a longer period. You may be at convenience with a gaming mouse and its programmable buttons rather than the normal mouse. And, having a good pair of headphones, best if wireless, can enrich your PC experience with the great bass and audio. 

If you are a PC or desktop user who wants to make the most of their PC and want to perform their works conveniently, then you must have the following accessories.

Gaming mouse

Every desktop or PC comes with a mouse which is normal and comprises of a left-click button, right-click button, and a wheel to scroll up and down. But, if you get yourself a gaming mouse, then you can change the tabs easily, or you can easily delete a file, or you can easily open an application, just by clicking the programmed buttons. With their programmable buttons, you can work on your computer easily. Besides, because of the ergonomic design of the mouse, your hand fits perfectly and you can use the computer for long hours without risking any hand injury or pain. And, as the DPI is high, if you are a fast user, you can have fun with the fast-moving cursors.

Mechanical keyboard

Who won't wish to have a better typing feel, right? With mechanical keyboards, you can get not only a better typing feel but accuracy even during the fast typing.

Besides, they make less noise because of the high-quality plastic key switches underneath the keycaps.

Good flash drive

Things to Consider While Buying a Gaming Laptop

27th October 2020
"The best gaming experience comes with the best gaming laptops."

The gaming trend is escalating, and so is the technology and features in the gaming laptops. If you have enough budget to put in the gaming laptops, then why to hesitate- for gaming laptops enrich your gaming experience with smooth transitions for a longer period without burning your hardware. 
One should be cautious about every feature while buying a gaming laptop as it is pricy and in case of damages, the repair costs can be really high. Some of the important things that should be considered while buying a gaming laptop are:

Hardware (GPU & CPU)

Both GPU and CPU are equally important to enrich the gaming experience. Advanced GPU aids the gamer with smoother VR and special effects to enrich the gaming experience. While talking about GPU, there are many advanced graphics cards from the AMD series and the Nvidia series. These cards differ from entry-level gaming that requires basic settings to mainstream gaming, and VR and Highest settings. So, do some research and choose accordingly.

The gaming experience is mostly affected by the GPU rather than the CPU. So, you can choose a very powerful CPU- Core i7 or you can simply choose Dual Core i5 as well. However, for lag-free experience in high-intensity games, you should go after Core i7 which relatively is expensive than other processors.

RAM/VRAM

RAM, undoubtedly, is the feature that affects the entire experience, and don't forget, things under the hood matters the most. For gaming, I recommend you not to settle below 8GB RAM, as even the best games might stress you out with all the disadvantages that come with lower RAM. If possible, go for 16GB RAM that is generally offered on the laptops with GTX 2060 or more. Nevertheless, memory, in most of the laptops today, is upgradable; so you can boost it when it’s convenient.

Screen/ Display

Every move you make, every target you set, every detail, every enemy, and everything you enjoy while gaming is all on your screen. So, don't forget to consider the laptop with the best resolution, refresh rate, and viewing angle! One needs to consider the size, resolution, refresh rate, panel type, and G-sync and free sync. Click here to know more about the display best for the gaming experience. And, if possible, avoid 2-in-1 laptops with touch screens as glossy screens that kill the battery are pitfalls for the best gaming experience. 

Keyboards and touchpads

As you make most of the movements using the keyboard, you have to examine the keyboards as well. The key travel i.e. how far you can press the key down; actuation i.e. force you need to apply to press the key down along with anti-ghosting and n-key roller that allows registers all the keys if pressed hurriedly should be considered to ease you with the gaming experience. Also, most entry-level gaming laptops have a red or white backlight or some also may have RGB backlight while some allow you to change colors as per the game.

Others

While the above mentioned are crucial and most important specs to consider, good sound output, ample storage, and brands should also be considered.
