What are the uses of computers?

Computers, basically will help into our day to day basis.

Nowadays, Computers are more likely to become a general notion just like electricity.

Before, we expect that in every houses there’s a switch for electricity but now we expect computers and soon they’ll greet us with an Artificial Intelligence Voice.

Computers became a need rather than want but don’t get me wrong, it already has a wide variety in terms of computing that could help us in our daily lives through our phones, smart watches, smart tv, schools, hospitals, churches, cars and etc.

People use it for gaming, browsing, chatting, streaming, entertainment, programming and also a way of communicating someone you like or even a stranger.

Of course, here’s the sad part. There’s porn, hacking and cyber bullying.

It is just a preference of someone whether what or how they going to use it.

Should I buy Gaming PC or Gaming Laptop?

gaming pc or gaming laptop

Welcome to our Your Question, I Answer portion of the GameBuildPC, where you can ask anything about PC and stuffs. 

So, Tristan Lazatin from our FB page asked me a question Should I build Gaming PC or buy Gaming Laptop?

First things first. If it’s purely for gaming then we already know who’ll perform best. But at the end of his message, it will also be used as a workstation. He’s still a student from UST and would want to build CAD projects as the same time for gaming.

Thanks Tristan for sending me a message. I’ll make a list of Pros and Cons of Gaming PC and Gaming Laptop, hoping it well help you decide:

Pros of PC:
  1. Cheap, in a sense that with same amount of money you will get far better performance compare to laptop
  2. Upgradable, PC is like brick cubes where you could swap it out with ones you like as long it’s compatible
  3. Customization, from different styles and featues you want
  4. Overall better gaming and creating project experience, choices of having bigger screens and layout
Cons of PC:
  1. Nevermind mobility, obviously you can’t bring it anywhere without spending too much effort carrying its weight.
  2. Staging area, it’s big and bulky. Unless you’ll build using m-ATX boards and cases.
  3. Dust, on the big fans including intake and exhaust and from both CPU and GPU. You have to make time to wipe it down.
Pros of Laptop:
  1. Mobility, if you could bring your workstation then you’re the champ of your team.
  2. Electricity consumption, less compare to desktop pc
  3. Best buddy, especially when you’re on the go for filming and editing.

I have to use laptop everytime when doing programming stuffs and creative thinking. It’s really tempting to use gaming pc because I usually get bored and have to do some minor breaks.

Main Cons of “GamingLaptop:
  1. IT WILL DEFINITELY RUN HOT.

I don’t want to exagerate this but it still indeed run incredibly hot especially when you’re not in the controlled temp environment especially if you’re not in the office or air conditioned room. It’s frustrating and you won’t be able to focus on your stuff. Unless you have a docking port / station with external keyboard and mouse.

Other cons of Laptop:

  1. Small screen, you may not like that since you’re also into gaming
  2. Almost zero option for upgrading, except for Storage and in most cases RAM and that process is not simple either.
  3. Price to performance is not as good as PC

So with that being said, I hope it adds additional info whether you should build a Gaming PC or Gaming Laptop. One thing to add:

Gaming laptop and PCs could also be used as workstation. Well depends on your preferences. 16GB RAM with powerful CPU can be helpful for your rendering and cad projects; 8GB RAM with powerful GPU can do a lot in Gaming.

Bottomline, it’s still up to your preferences.

Thanks Tristan!

Is it bad in the long term to fully overclock my video card?

Overclocking.

overclock

When we say overclocking in technical terms, you are increasing its component clock rate, running with a higher clock speed tends to increase performance operations per seconds but on the other hand it will dissipate more heat.

Make sure to read and watch some reviews regarding overclocking your gpu and take a review if its really worth it to overclock.

If it’s not worth it might as well as not do it. It’s just simply a waste of time and effort.

If it’s Yes, you can squeeze more performance out of your components with a good cooling system which is good but what are going to do with that? If you’re a hardcore gamer  wanting to get more FPS well  then go for it.

Remember that you must not supposed to do it without proper knowledge and capabilities. I am talking about experience, dedication and patience. This might void the warranty and burn out your card.

I have a question, have you experienced using”overclocking software”? that comes with the GPU. Basically you still need to download it from the manufacturer’s website. I don’t know about you but it doesn’t work for me at all. It makes everything laggy and put my gpu temp at risk. Maybe I don’t have the patience to learn it on my own way but still I had to uninstall it.

In long term “fully” overclocked videocard let’s say it was “stable”, What if it stop or slowed down without your mindset to monitor your vcard temp? It may decrease your vcard performance and increase its temp overtime. You cannot really depend on  those cheap and stock fans or rather from unreliable video card manufacturers.

Every component has it own shell life but keeping it in standard temps will help you to increase your gpu performance and also prolong its life.

What are basic difference between computer and consoles?

It’s non sense if I list down all component parts here, compare here and that. You’ll not appreciate it.  you just need to choose your side first. PC or Console.

We will talk about components Flexibility Mindset.

Let’s start with PC:

pc

If you are a hardcore gamer, PC enthusiast, content creator, blogger or video editor and also wanting to have some more FPS for your $ and the “mindset to upgrade” later on down the line well you should be proud.

Structural differences may differ from its size and usage but usually consoles are a bit smaller than the PCs

Consoles:

consoles

Consoles has motion sensing devices that can be use for dancing, interactive games, exercising and recreational activities.

It is also are more into “just game” mindset, I know some of kids will react but the capability of consoles cannot just overcome or even outperform PCs because of its components flexibility.

Yes it can have more FPS compare to the old PC ones but what type of game are we comparing? consoles cannot match all PCs well not all.

If a gamer wants a wireless control stick, PC can have that too.

Bottom line, It is just the personal preferences of a gamer. you can have both and then compare it with your own styles.

Is Generic PSU good that comes from its case?

Theoretically, YES. it can run and boot your system run few low end graphics.

Generic PSU

But Technically, NO. your graphics and cpu eats a lot of power especially in running high end graphics games and long time overclocking and you may want to have a room for their adjustment so that it won’t damage your system every time if it looses power then shuts down itself.

I highly suggest that do not use any bundled “PSU” from any cases because we never know what was inside of that box.

You know, when building a Gaming PC. The first thing that should come first in our mind is the PSU.

Choosing a reliable PSU from any reputable brand like Seasonic, Corsair, Cooler Master, EVGA  with (80+ bronze, silver or gold) may leave a peaceful mind about power and electricity consumption.

You may want to have atleast 600W+ from any reputable brands with an efficiency of 80+ certification.

Have fun on your build!
