Hi, I bought a lenovo G50-45 laptop (AMD A8 6410) recently. After purchasing I found that it has 4 GB ram but with 800 mhz frequency only. I want to use 8gb ram now. Please suggest if I buy one more 4gb ram with 800 mhz or a single stick 8gb ram with 1600 mhz. Which gonna be faster and better? I know my motherboard supports upto 1833 mhz ram.

why everyone suggests dell monitor, i have my two dell monitor die on me just after warranty expired, why not reccommend Asus, AOC or something else

ok so now a Gaming keyboard and mouse from cost something around 1000 to 1200 rupees, please sugggest that, as its designed for gaming, Logitech K200 is not good for gaming, and by just paying few rupees more one can get a good quality mouse and keyboard

Dell only has one year warranty, and others like asus, benq, aoc provide 3 year warranty and also they have wall mount feature

why people recommend dell when other good options are available in market

I saw gaming keyboard question above.
I'm in the same dilemma.
Someone suggest me tvs keyboard
Amazon.in: Buy TVS-e Bharat Gold PS2 Wired Keyboard Online at Low Prices in India | Tvs Reviews & Ratings

But after some search I came across this.

Brown switch-
Unlike linear switches, browns have a soft bump to indicate actuation, but very little “click.” This middle-of-the-road approach makes Browns viable for both typists and gamers: their quiet nature is perfect for typing in an office setting; for gaming, their close reset and actuation points allow quick double-taps.


Blue switch-
They have a relatively high actuation point at 50 grams and offer some serious tactile feedback, with loud, high-pitched clicks and a steep bump. But gamers may get frustrated with the inability to quickly double-tap. Because the reset point (the point where you are able to hit another key) is above the actuation point, the key must be released more before it can register a repeat keystroke.

Tvs one is blue type.

Any member has experience with above keyboard?

i am interested in buying a backlit keyboard mouse combo for my pc within Rs 3000-initially i thought of going for CM devastator bundle as its the only one that's available within the aforesaid price range but then I came across Dragon War X Q2 combo keyboard that's available for around Rs 2400 and looks more promising than the devastator bundle in terms of features and performance(Dragon War X Q2 Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo USB Standard Keyboard - Dragon War : Flipkart.com)

But i'm still hesitant to buy it as i've never heard of this particular brand and i don't know how reliable their products really are,although the reviews of this combo seem very positive from what i've seen on flipkart till date.Does anyone have any experience of using dragon war keyboards?Will buying this combo be a good idea?Please advice-i intend to purchase it within a day or two.

What is the price difference between Dragon War and CM Devastator? Just 600 bucks right! So go with CM Devastator as I am using it. It is very good keyboard and mouse combo for its price.OK.

^ok but i've been told that the mouse that comes with the devastator combo isn't very durable and tends to malfunction after it has been subjected to heavy usage-have you faced any issues with your mouse yet?

And btw is Dragon wars an Indian or an international brand?

Thanks for replying saiyangoku. I also have another query:a friend of mine wants to buy a motherboard for his pc as his existing motherboard is acting up. He has found someone who's offering him an used Asus p8h61-m lx3 R 2.0 motherboard for around rs 2000-will it be a good idea to buy it? Is it a reliable board? I've heard that there are many versions of the h61 chipset of which b3 and later revisions are considered stable-can anyone tell me whether this particular motherboard is based on the updated b3 chipset or not?

I got a budget of Rs. 2,80,000. Need to build as bad ass a gaming rig as possible. Already have a cabinet (CM Stryker) and monitor. Does DDR4 have any significant advantage over DDR3? Would prefer to make it future proof.
