Cheapest 100 $ Gaming PC Build which could run GTA 5 !?

So here we have possibly the cheapest specification list for a GAMING PC which would certainly be able to play Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) upto 40 frames per second and other famous games as well at depending considerable frames per second. If components are bought used, the cost may not exceed $100, however if new components are bought, price may rise upto $150-$170

So first we have our AMD APU. The Super AMD A8-7600 3.1GHz Quad Core with Radeon R7 Integrated Graphics, so you won't need to buy a Graphics Card, thus saving up some bucks! With 2 x 2 MB L2 Cache and a Max Turbo Frequency of upto 3.8GHz, this APU will let you play games like GTA 5, CS GO, ROCKET LEAGUE and DOTA 2 without any lag. A stock cooler is also accompanied with the processor for maintaining the temperature during the Turbo Mode. Will cost you about $70 new.

The Motherboard we'll be using for this build would be the ASRock FM2A88M PRO3. With Overclockable DDR3 Ram, this motherboard allows dual channeling as well. It has 8 x SATA3, 4 x USB 3.0 (2 Front, 2 Rear), 8 x USB 2.0,1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 and 2 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots. It also allows Dual AMD Graphics in case you later want to upgrade. Graphics Output Options include D-Sub, DVI-D and  HDMI port. Will cost you about $50 new.

As for the RAM, Crucial (or any other good brand) 2 x 2 GB 1600 MHz Ram would work (However we prefer 2 x 4 GB RAM since we're using an APU) and this dual channeling will hence result in a considerable better performance. Both Ram sticks would cost around $20 new.

A Western Digital 250GB 7200rpm HARD DISK would be enough to fulfill your Gaming storage needs. Will cost you around $10 new.

As for the Power Supply Unit (PSU) and Casing, we recommend any simple casing with an attached 500 Watt PSU to keep the cost as low as possible. Will cost around $15 new.

An example of a casing with PSU

Buying other components such as coolers and peripherals depend on the flexibility of your budget.

RX 460 : Specifications, Price, Benchmarks, Review, Features and more !

AMD has recently announced the Radeon 400 series which features the Polaris GPUs using the new 14nm FinFET manufacturing process and are expected to transform the gaming experience. The company has already announced the coming of the RX 480, RX 470 and the RX 460.

Today we are going to provide you the information on the RX 460. Although the chip has not yet been released to the market, the RX 460 is approximated to cost around $99 price (2 GB) and $129 (4 GB).
Explaining about the card on the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the AMD CEO Lisa Su, said “The RX 460 is focused on e-sports.I heard about all those e-sports fans and the audiences! This guy is gonna be the best card in the industry; Less than 75 Watts, cool, fast, I think they are gonna love this card.”

Now if we have a look on the first picture, we can have a glimpse of the RX 460. There is no doubt that this small thing can fit into smaller cases , does not produce too much heat(one fan only) , and is probably not the best looking graphic card one would want. Actually, this card reminded me of a much powerful Geforce G210 when I held it in my hand for the first time.

The RX 460 features the Polaris 11 architecture and is said to have either 14 CUs or 16 CUs. It is designed for 60 FPS MOBA games at full HD, it uses a small fan and has the Thermal Design Power (TDP) of less than 75 Watts. The card uses PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface which employs lower I/O pin count, smaller physical footprint, higher maximum system bus throughput and better performance scaling for bus devices. This makes it easy to interface the card to most of the PC and thus, will give you power to enjoy gaming even on your old PC.

The following are the RX 460's system specifications :

GPU Model : -----------------------14nm Polaris 11
Cores: TMUs :----------------------ROPs     1024:64:32
Base clock :-------------------------1000MHz
Boost clock :------------------------1200MHz
Memory clock (effective) :-------1250 (5000) MHz
Computing Power (FP32) :-------2048GFLOPS
Memory size :----------------------2048 MB GDDR5
Memory Bandwidth :-------------80GB/s
Interface :---------------------------PCI-Express 3.0 x16

Done with the specifications ! Now let's move on and talk about it's performance in real world games.
NOTE: Don't expect ultra performance on the latest AAA titles but definitely for the e-sport titles , MOBA titles and thousands of other MMORPGS, you are going to get a solid fps on maxed out settings.
Have a look at this :

So far , no bad! The RX 460 has really proved that it is the boss of the price to performance ratio in the market of GPUs (as far as e-sport games are concerned). It's performance in most games was perfect and the price , on the other hand goes hand in hand.

So what do you think ? Is the RX 460 going to be your next pick for a mid-range or low-range PC Build ? Do you have it or have you tried it ? Share your experiences with us! Cheers!

Is your country going to ban Whatsapp as well ? | WhatsApp burned for hours in Brazil !

Whatsapp Messenger has formed an important part of our daily lives. Sending text, files, images and even videos and instant voice recordings with such great ease for free is a gift given to us by it's developers.

Now Whatsapp , like every other messenger is a base of communication. The modern era has taken away our privacy as organizations such as NSA track down each and every one of our messages to look for terrorist organizations such as ISIS. Whatsapp is tracked down in the same way as well.

Let's consider the fact that Whatsapp  wants to secure our privacy. In the process, countries may stop it's service in their area, in case Whatsapp tried to protect your privacy by not providing your personal data to them. In such a case , YOUR COUNTRY MAY BAN IT AS WELL !

Brazilian court suspended the use of WhatsApp for few hours after the Judge's claim over the company’s failure to provide data from WhatsApp which was requested by the Authority to help in criminal investigations.

The court ordered the mobile carriers in the country to block the App which was being used by many people in the country.

This is the third time for the Brazilian authority to burn the use of WhatsApp in the country. The App was burned December last year for 48 hours (after WhatsApp failed to respond to two court orders), and  this year again for similar reasons.

The authority was held in for questioning  the Facebook vice president , following the company’s failure to provide WhatsApp data requested by the Authority in connection with criminal investigation for drug trafficking.

The CEO and WhatsApp cofounder Mr. Jan Koum has responded to the news as “shocking” in his Facebook post. 

“We're working to get WhatsApp back online in Brazil. It's shocking that less than two months after Brazilian people and lawmakers loudly rejected blocks of services like WhatsApp, history is repeating itself. As before, millions of people are cut off from friends, loved ones, customers, and colleagues today, simply because we are being asked for information we don't have.” Said Koum in his post.

Hours later the President of the Supreme Federal Court of Brazil, Enrique Ricardo Lewandowski suspended the burn, which called for immediate restore of the App service. And according to him, the suspension of the service apparently violates the fundamental precept of freedom of expression and communication.

WhatsApp has recently introduced the end to end data encryption in which the message sent through WhatsApp can only be seen by the sender and the intended receiver, reducing the vulnerability of user's data into the hand of law enforcing organs or criminals.

So After reading all this news , do you think that Whatsapp may get banned in your country as well? How would you react ? What would you loose ?

Pokemon Go | What is Pokemon Go? | Everything you need to know about Pokemon Go!


Pokémon Go is a free to play augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic and published by Pokémon Company as part of the Pokémon franchise. The game was release on July, 2016 and now is available for free download on both Android and iOS devices.
The game allows players to capture, battle and train virtual creatures called Pokémon that appear throughout the real world.
The game uses device’s camera, GPS and clock to detect the location of device and what time it is in a game which increases the funny of it. And as you move around to different places while playing the game different ‘Pokémon’ appear depending on the location of your device and the time.

The environment or background of the game varies depending on your location and the time, for instance if you go near lakes or ocean you will find water types environment and Pokémon, and if you go out at night you will find fairy and ghost types. The game’s background represents virtually your current location and let you find the nearby Pokémon.

Pokemon Go imitates the environment of your location

The game has become popular after few weeks of its release surpassing the record that was held by ‘Candy Crush saga’ as the most used smart devices apps in the United States. The goal of the game is to collect as many virtual creatures as you can which looks like snakes, rats, dragons, dinosaurs, fish, eggs or trees.

An optional companion Bluetooth wearable device the Pokémon Go plus is now available to alert players when the Pokémon are nearby. The device connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and notifies the player about events in the game, such as the appearance of a Pokémon nearby using an LED and vibration.

Pokémon Go plus

When a Pokémon is close, the light on the Pokémon Go plus will flash. It will also flash and vibrate when you pass a Pokémon. Once a Pokémon is close, press the button on the Pokémon Go Plus to throw a Poke’ ball. And you will only be able to throw a ball using a Pokémon Go plus if you have caught the Pokémon before. The Pokémon Go Plus will flash and vibrate to let you know that you have your catch.

Although the game has received positive comments from medical personnel that it enhance and improves physical and mental well-being of the players, there have been reports of causing accidents.

How to play the game

After logging into the app for the first, the player creates an avatar. The player can choose style, hair, skin and eye color from different number of outfits for their avatar. The created avatar along with the player’s immediate surroundings will be displayed at the player’s current location.  Features on the map includes a number of PokéStops and Pokémon gyms and are located at different areas such as public art installations, historical markers, historic buildings and other memorials, public parks and fountains, places of worship and other points of cultural significance.
As you move while playing, the avatar moves along the game’s map. When a player encounters a Pokémon they may view it in either an augmented reality (AR) mode or with a pre-rendered background.

AR mode uses the device’s camera and gyroscope to display image of Pokémon as though it were in the real world. Also a player can take pictures of the Pokémon they encounter using an in-game camera both with and without the AR mode activated.
To capture a Pokémon, the player may throw a Poké Ball at it. If the Pokémon is successfully caught it will come under the ownership of the player. Factors in the success rate of capture include the right force, the right time and the type of Poké Ball used.

Candies and stardust are the in-game currencies used to award the player after capturing a wild Pokémon. The candies awarded by a successful catch depends on what evolutionary chain a Pokémon belongs to. A player can use stardust and candies to raise a Pokémon's "combat power" (CP). However, only candies are needed to evolve a Pokémon. Each Pokémon evolution tree has its own type of candy which can only be used to evolve or level up. The player can also transfer the Pokémon back to the Pokémon professor to earn one more candy and create room for more Pokémon.

The goal of the game is to complete the entries in the Pokédex by capturing and evolving to obtain 151 Pokémon.

Players earn experience points for various activities in the game and rise in level as they earn experience points. At level five, the player is able to battle at a Pokemon gym and join one of three teams (Team Valor, Team Instinct and Team Mystic). If a player enters a Pokemon Go gym that is controlled by a player that is not part of their team, they can challenge the leader to lower the gyms prestige. Once the prestige of a gym is lowered to zero then the player will take control of the gym and is able to deposit one Pokemon to defend it. Also, a team can upgrade the prestige of a gym under their control by battling the gym leader.

We hope that you will now, "not" stand as a dumbo when your friends discuss about Pokemon Go.
