AVADirect D901C

Hardcore gamers often resemble a clandestine brotherhood of druids that proudly use obscure language and hide the depths of their knowledge from the general public. AVADirect has long been one of their resources for overpowered gaming setups.

A solid configuration for the AVADirect D901C includes a 3.3GHz E8600 processor. You’ll recognize the desktop class, dual-core processor from the Falcon Northwest FragBook DRX and Sager NP9262. The E8600 is the best dual-core processor you can get without venturing into over clocking or unstable prototype territory. The processor and 4GB of high-speed RAM work together to deliver power to the AVADirect D901C’s dual GeForce 9800M GTX video cards. The SLI configured video cards mean that, performance wise, the AVADirect D901C will be indistinguishable from a high-end gaming desktop. Yep. You’ll be playing Far Cry 2, Fallout 3 and Starcraft 2 on your laptop.

There are cheaper gaming laptops around. Budget gaming machines like the Toshiba Qosmio X305 and Gateway P-7811FX are a bit friendlier on your pocketbook than the AVADirect D901C. They just don’t come with the promise of godlike performance. For around $4,000 with SLI and a high-end processor, the AVADirect D901C is pretty affordable as far as extreme performance laptops go. AVADirect offers a boatload of build options, so if you’re looking to save a few hundred dollars you can always downgrade a few components.

ATI vs NVIDIA in 2010. And The Winner is….


Here is a Verdict on ATI vs NVIDIA in 2010 by Sahil Singh who is a Hard Core Gamer

This fight cannot end , if anyone asks about Graphics the first name which comes on mouth is  NVIDIA which takes the win, but in 2010 the game has changed! The game winner is ATI now! ATI started making its place when it launched the 4800 series graphics. After that, World got to know that ATI is still in game! The first 4800 series card the ATI RADEON HD 4830 was the starting of the evolution , though it was not a big hit, soon there comes 4850 with same platform as 4830 which had more GPU core speed, the next card was the main highlight of the show! It was the nvidia killer, HD 4870, after that ATI never moved back. HD 4870 boasts of having 956 million transistors on 55nm fabrication process ,256-bit GDDR5 the first card ever having GDDR5 that made the day for  ATI , after that there was HD 4890, Once again a hit by ATI, which made nvidia to think

As you can see in the picture, the smallest one is HD 4850 the middle one is HD 4870 and the biggest one is HD 4890. Let me just say that you will need the best gaming monitor to even get close to seeing these at max settings. There were no big hits till September 22nd. They launched the first 5800 series card, the 5870 which was again a great hit! There were 2 models available hd 5870 1gig and 5870 2 gig, Later, hd 5850 and the hd 5830 all were the lucky charm for ATI, but ATI wanted something more than this! It wanted the name “World’s Fastest Graphics Card”

Here are the specs of the HD 5800 series of card. All of the 5800 series supported eye infinity which is a next generation module immersive gaming experience innovative, panoramic, multi-display capabilities4,6 and also had the direct x 11 support

This is the main deal, HD 5970 world’s fastest card with 4 gig of memory and with Eyefinity 6 which could connect six display together like a large monitor!

By This You Can see how the game changes Not every time winner stays the winner

Therefore, The Winner is…………….

    2. FRAPS: Fraps is the ultimate tool found on everygamers desktop. It specialises in HQ video recording ingame and can also be used for taking screenshots. It is also used for benchmarking and checking FPS (frames per Second).Though the size of the videos is huge, so they need to be rendered in an approprite form before uploading or just saving. Although it is not free but still this program has seen a huge success in the gaming world.

    3.  Steam: Steam is an ultimate online gaming platform. Supports Instant access to your games, Chat with friends,but games online, automatic game uploades and more. millions of people around the globe are using steam. And moreover its free too. 🙂

    Alan Wake now sleeping on PC


    Microsoft kicked off the rumors that started that the hit X-BOX Game Alan Wake will be coming soon to PC.

    This was a bad day for gamers who were eagerly waiting for this game.

    Microsoft Spokesperson said in his blog.

    “Some games are more suited for the intimacy of the PC, and others are best played from the couch in front of a larger TV screen. We ultimately realised that the most compelling way to experience “Alan Wake” was on the Xbox 360 platform, so we focused on making it an Xbox 360 exclusive. Both Microsoft and Remedy have long histories in PC game development. This decision was about matching this specific game to the right platform.” said a Microsoft spokesperson.

    Well we have to deal with it! Another reason to hate Microsoft is here!


    A Complete Guide on Assembling a Gaming PC


    This post is gonna be too interesting for gamers like me. I was a hardcore gamer and also assembled few PC’s so I thought I could help out some of the people who are going to assemble one or just upgrade it.

    We will starts from basic to the top. I will also describe what this thing does and will also describe some additional information with it.

    Lets start.


    Gaming PCs are generally assembled so that they deliver maximum performance while gaming. A guy does not wants to get stuck on 5-6 fps (Frames Per Second) while playing GTA IV. Well too embarrassing. It needs the correct configuration. By correct configuration I mean that  we don’t place a Nvidia 7300 with Intel Core i7. In this configuration the processor’s power will go waste.


    • Case: Case is the first thing one should keep in mind as the case describes the Motherboard form factor and the SMPS(Power Supply Unit). A case should be well ventilated as long hours of gaming may take the temperatures to as high as 90 C. Take a case with at least two fans as the heat will also degrade the PC’s performance. Cases range from Rs 500 to Rs 20,000. Some well known manufacturing companies are Cooler Master, iBall, Thermal take and others. Choose the best considering the upper points which fits your budget.
    • Processor: Processor is the unit which is more important that the GPU (Graphics card). The more powerful the processor the better gaming experience. The Processors are manufactured by two leading companies Intel and AMD. Check out the processor with best performance in your budget. Make sure it’s socket is compatible with your Motherboard. Also the thing that most people confuse with. AMD’s motherboard are different from Intel’s motherboard. A motherboard ment for using with AMD processor won’t fit an Intel Processor.
    • Motherboard: This is the main component as all the hardware you are gonna buy is ultimately getting fit into this board. Choose the board with atleast 1 PCIe Express 2.0 slot(For 1GPU) and supports your processor. You an opt for more than 1 Slots if you want to crosfire two GPUs. Also check what memory modules would your motherboard support. Most gaming motherboards are made by Asus, Gigabyte, MSI & Biostar.
    • RAM: Most games today(I am not talking about solitaire) spit on 1GB Ram. Check the speed, module your motherboard supports and buy Ram accordingly. Minimum recommended ram for a gaming pc is 2GB. Maximum can be taken to anywhere like my friend from Germany has 16GB Ram installed which even laughs at my 4GB. Ram’s come in different varities according to their clock speed and other factors. Most gamers use Rams by OCZ, Gskill, Silicon power or other but we can work it out with cheap one like kingston.
    • GPU: GPU aka The Video Card is the life of the gaming PC. Video Cards range from Rs 1000 to Rs 40000. And SLI(Nvidia) or crosfire(ATI) costs even more. Check out the GPU which has a good performance with a PCI 2.0 Support, Latest DirectX 10 or 11 support, DDR3 or above memory type, and other features which suits your need. The GPU I used was MSI ATI Radeon 4850 1GB OC Edition which cost me Rs12000 1 month after its launch. You can also install 2 or more GPU according to your Mot herboard and SMPS. The best chipsets are available from ATI and Nvidia and the manufacturers are MSI, Asus, Palit, Sapphire etc.
    • Display: Choose a monitor with a bigger screen for better experience and a high resolution. Check out the monitors refresh rate, response rate and others. Get a screen of about 20″ or you could also attach the LCD or Plasma with HDMI port of your GPU. Check out the authority on gaming monitors: https://gamingbuff.com
    • SMPS: SMPS is the power supply unit of your CPU. Choose a SMPS which meets minimum requirement of your GPU and supports its connectors. i recommend to buy this from a branded company as it handles all the responsibility of saving your PC from the voltage fluctuations or other shit. Major producers are Coolermaster, Zebronics, Targus & others.
    • HDD: Get a good Hard Disk with enough storage space to meet your future requirements. I recommend minimum 500GBs as games can be as large as 20GB. Get hard disks from Seagate, Western Digital and samsung.

    Additional Items:

    • FANS: Choose some extra fan as they are often cheap and will give your PC a long life.
    • Sound Cards: For people who are just crazy about sound quality pick up a Sound card but they are too expensive.
    • Disk Drive: They can be bought according to your wish.
    • Keyboard and mouse: Keyboard and mouse have a different category for gaming. There are many types available but they aren’t cheap.
