Consumer Buying Guide

AreĀ  you planning to build a gaming pc? do you have enough knowledge to determine what kind of specifications that you will buy? If not then I can help you build a gaming computer.

First thing is your budget, depending on your budget we can come up with a perfect deal that will not go over your target budget.

Second question that is very important, what type of games are you playing? or what game titles to be exact? Not all games are similar some would required higher specifications to run smoothly. The most important hardware peripherals that can affect the smoothness of a game are the processor, graphics card, memory, and the type of drives that you will use to hold the game files. Those 4 are the most priority.

You must choose a processor that is multi threaded or multi-cores such as Intel i5 . This processor is powerful enough to run games that doesn’t require high graphics such as League of Legends, and other first person shooting games online. But if you are let’s say DOTA 2 player then you really need to have a dedicated graphics card such as GTX 1050 Ti for medium to high settings, or GT1030 if you are on the budget side. Then be sure to purchase at least 8GB to 16GB of DDR4 memory. These is enough to handle most demanding games released in the market. Lastly, the drive I suggest purchasing a solid state drive where you can install the operating system and some of your games. Do not buy 128/120GB SSD, go with at least 256GB of 512GB if you have extra money to burn. It is really worth it and your system will become rock solid and can lasts for several years without the need to reformat every now and then because your system files will be safe from corruption because of certain elements and factors such as temperature, power outage, bumps with your system case, and etc.

Lot of console gamers had a hard time choosing from these 2 gaming consoles. To give you some clear insights about these devices. Here are a summary of what you can expect when you purchase what ever your heart desire.

In terms of technology, the Nintendo supports 3D gaming which is a unique feature in the gaming industry specially for hand-held consoles. Not to mention 3DS devices are also dual-display while the VITA sports a OLED display similar to what is used on popular smartphones and monitor.

In terms of processing power, the obvious winner is the PS Vita which is powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor with clock speed of 800-1000MHz while on the other hand, the 3DS console is only equipped with a dual-core processor. So the winner for the cpu speed is definitely the PS VITA.

Graphics wise, VITA still shines on this showdown where it used PowerVR SGX543MP4+ that can process 33 million polygons/sec compared to the single-core GPU of Nintendo 3DS.

Regarding memory of the system which is commonly known as RAM. The PS Vita is still the winner with 512MB of RAM compared to 128MB of the Nintendo device.

For storage, this where Nintendo 3DS device excel as it can used external storage aside from its 2GB internal memory. PS vita don’t have internal and it requires PS vita card to play your favorite game. Not to mention that you can also purchase your favorite games in the Nintendo eshop store using Nintendo eshop gift cards. These feature is available for all the 3DS line-up as well as Wii U and the latest gaming system which is the Nintendo Switch. I think this is one of the most important hardware that gaming console or system must consider, yet PlayStation opt not to give users the chance to get a good built-in storage for their device. You need to buy their PS vita card which will costs you 4GB for $20, 8GB for $30, 16GB for $60, and 32GB for $100, respectively.

It’s up to you how you will use and enjoy the device on its full potential. Sometimes it is not on the hardware, rather on the game titles that you choose to play.
