Hardware / Peripherals / Re: Ps4 equivalent gaming rig

And I really dont agree that PC's are cheaper than Consoles for gaming. trying to build a PC closer to a console is meaningless.

If all you expect is gaming, the best choice for you is a console. That is ofcourse, if you can handle a gamepad/joystick. Some people prefer mice/keyboard for gaming, I guess thats just choice.
Think about it this way, both PS3 and Xbox 360 was released in 2005/2006. Since then its been around till now, and even now you get top quality games with super cool graphics. Even now these two are making great sales. and New games keep coming. If you had spent around $500 in 2005, 8 years later, you'd be still enjoying that console without having the hassle to upgrade/maintain. To build even a remotely similar PC at that time, You'd have had to spend around like $1500 or even more!. And that would have gotten outdated and you'd have had to upgrade by end of 2007 or 2008. Then again you spend around $1000 or more!. So for 8 years period, if you are an average gamer, you will spend about closer to $4000 or even more to just to keep your pc up-to-date (With the occasional mice and keyboard update :P). :) Even if you keep on buying new games for console, you would really not spend even half of that money. + You'd save quite a bit on power :P. Console dont just popup and fadeaway every year.. At-least it hasn't been like that as we know, so far. Just some thoughts :)

You shouldn't really try to compare consoles to PC, just by looking at the hardware specs. Consoles have many heavy optimizations, that PC's do not have. They are totally different in underlying architecture, which lets it yield a lot more performance for that specific configuration inside the console. For an example, xbox has the ability to stream data, geometry, etc, to GPU on the fly, saving that crucial milli/micro seconds that you need, if you have to write to memory, and then pick up from there for gpu to process. This specific architecture is called XPS (XBox Procedural Synthesis, Look-it up if you want to find more info). This is just one example. If you want to build a system that is equivalent in performance just with raw power, you need to spend a lot more money to close up these optimizations to get even a bit close. A console is not just another device with bunch of powerful hardware put together. A lot of thought is put in to in to gain maximum with minimum cost..  ;)
And also, people who develop games for consoles take these specific optimizations to full use, So basically let it be xbox or PS4, you end up with games that fully utilize resources without bottlenecks and which runs super smooth for that console, you will see what the developer want you to see because of this, and these will fail to render same performance anywhere else, other consoles or PC.

CS 1.6 was awesome like 2 - 3 years back in here. It was competitive and, mostly it was fun.

What do you guys think?





Nice rig! :D Where did you get the monitor from? How much?

You cant judge the picture quality by looking at the photo he posted, you should go and check in a showroom if you really want to compare, in Wijerama showroom, they have 42" 3D LED Innovex and Sony Bravia brands. The picture quality looked quite similar to me (I couldn't check much - 3D quality etc, as I was in a hurry, I might go back this weekend, in that case, I ll update this post), except I felt that Bravia had a slightly better brightness and sharpness. Also, when you look at the end product, the Sony tv had a quite slim, elegant and a classy look, comparing to Innovex. Heh! Buuut, Innovex is priced at somewhere around 130k, while Sony is priced at 190-200k! I'm quite satisfied with the after sales service of Damro, in that aspect, they are quite brilliant! They have a superb after sales service, from my experience. So, If they give 2 years warrenty, and they mentioned that even after 2 years, they would fix it, as they have parts to fix any issue, with that price tag, I believe its a quite good option.

Oh, btw! They advertise only 42" TV's as "Full HD".

32" LED's as HD and 32" LCD as HD Ready.

Using along side with PeoTV, so router is pulling a total of about 11.5Mbps at full load, without any hiccups.

ZTE router was causing PeoTV to lag, so I configured a DLink Wireless-N router to work with PeoTV and ADSL, and its working like a charm! Im about 2 to 2.5Km away from the telecom exchange box (or whatever they call it). ZTE is a piece of crap, if you guys also have 8Mbps + PeoTV lag issues, you might want to give another router a try. Worked for me! We all know that SLT has a habbit of taking the easy way out from the problems.

Gonna change my connection to the Web Family thing... 25 GB at 2-8mbps is always better than 18GB at 512kbps for the same price :P

Yeah, I thought the same thing, but there's 1 thing. We tend to use more bandwidth in a equal time period when the connection is faster than using 512. And also, most of the application we use, optimize data quality depending on the connection, so faster the connection, better quality internet you get, and also faster you consume the allocated bandwidths.

Sometime back I switched to 2Mbps 20GB package, I used to consume 20GB within 2 weeks. with the 512K with same amount of downloads and activities, I used only about 25GB for the whole month.

Do note that you don't have the option to switch back if you don't like the new line. :) So, I'm still thinking about switching. :)

hey mate can u check wht your current snr and attenuation vals are prior to the upgrade? would be kewl to see if the snr drops at all when u use peo tv with the new pkg.. so a few tests if u dnt mind..

1) snr and attenuation with your current setup while downloading only
2) snr and attenuation with your current setup while downloading + peo tv on
3) idle snr and attenuation

then if u can get the same set once u've upgraded pls.. ;) this would be an useful set of stats to maintain.. and given that they've agreed to upgrade u and maintain a min. 60% QoS, u could use it to screw them (if u wish to :p) in case u experience lesser QoS.. :D

Yeah, Sure. Why not :D .
Heres from router Diagnostics page, this is with PeoTV inuse, while idle and when downloading. Doesnt make much difference, whether ADSL is idle or not (0.2 +-  max change in Noise and Atten.). Couldnt check PeoTV idle yet :P Dad is watching the match :D LOL.

Anyhow, Line downstream rate 3644 Kb/s. AFAIK, its 3Mb/s for PeoTV and 0.5Mb/s for ADSL. Same ratios apply for Uplink as well.

Attainable line rate is pretty interesting, 8Mb/s ADSL would be fine, considering 8+3 is still less than attainable max. I'm not an expert in these network configurations, I honestly dont know how these noise and attenuation affect the speeds, or if in fact they affect at all.

Line Mode                        ADSL2+     Line State               Show Time
Line Up Time Duration    00:01:44:32     System Up Time       00:01:44:41
Line Downstream Rate    3644        Line Upstream Rate    252
Latency Type               Fast        Line Coding               Trellis On
Noise Margin               31.9        Line Attenuation         34.5
Output Power               32.5        Attainable Line Rate    14980
Line Up Count                    1        Status                   No Defect

Errm, I too is a PeoTV user and I went to SLT Rathmalana Regional Office today to ask if I could upgrade my connection to 8Mbps, They said I can, and theres no problem with that. I asked if it would conflict with PeoTV connection speeds, and they said its not a problem :0. So I'm going there again on Saturday to get it switched. I barely exceed 10GB now, so I could you the fast connection. :D
