PC System Upgrade CPU vs GPU?

Sa gaming ala masyado maitutulong ang CPU compared pag inupgrade mo GPU as it will only improve overall performance. That is kung galing ka sa cpu from ancient generation, probably better CPU will show improvement but not that much. How come?

I won't go into details but it should be obvious lalung-lalo na pag ni-claim sarili mo na techie :)

I remember I almost upgrade my q6600 P35 system to i7 860 but since I'm cheap and tight on budget it would be wiser for me to upgrade the GPU sell my current GPU instead. It turns out my system gained significantly faster gaming performance and I save almost 8k-10k. After more than a 1 year, I'm still happy!

Rant: Globe Tattoo / Mifi / Superstick with 3 - 7mbps

Some benchmark using Tattoo stick + Plan999:
Malabon - 1-2mbps
Tandang Sora - 1mbps
Ortigas Ave - 3.5mbps!

Mapapansin nyo napakarami nabubwisit sa service ng Globe regarding of wireless connection (don't get me started on Globe DSL upload speed!!!!). Masyado marami naaakit sa marketing nila and to think about it sino ba aayaw sa 1299/mo na aabot naman ng 7mbps?

Actually it's all about signals. Pag di makakuha ng maayos na 3g signal pero fullbar ang gsm nag aaverage lang ng 2mbps tapos nag upgrade pa smart at globe ng 7mbps to 12mbps. Walang effect!

Nikon D800 or D700s to replace D700?

If Nikon will follow the steps of Apple, they should release the D700s soon. Lol!

Does AMA Computer College school sucks?

I choose AMA QC kasi malapit sa bahay... super lazy ako nun pero ngayon lazy nalang (improving!).

I believe na napakarami magagaling sa computers at doon ako naging competative at naging adik narin sa computer specifically programming. In my college days in AMA, I won a programming contest twice and joined AMA team for Microsoft Philippines competitions several times with the Dean's Listed guys.

Dean's Listed... henyo? hell no! I took Trigonometry 3 times and Calculus 2 times. Hahaha :D

Are you a Copy-Paste Programmer?

Most programmer will probably say YES as it does really save time, no doubt about it.

I'll probably say YES but for only codes that is cryptic, that is waay beyond my knowledge and skills how the code works and probably too desperate to use.

Really I'm a NO, most of the time I type the code I'm copying from the net from scratch. I believe that way I analyze the code better and at the same time I improve I scale and I optimize much faster.

AMD Radeon HD 6950 vs Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti... which is which?

Simple, let's put it this way...

AMD Radeon HD 6950 = Eyefinity
Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti = Physx

In Comparison...

Probably you won't see any speed difference between the 2 except for PhysX exclusive games in favor of 560ti.

6950 1gb & 2gb is identical in terms of speed but both takes the lead by a great deal in a shader driven game compared to 560ti.
