Best Gaming CPU under 300 dollars 2015

Today we finish with the third installment of our special item reviews in which we chose the best cpu for gaming within different price ranges.

We have talked earlier about the best processors to play games if you have a budget of up to 100 dollars, which would be the basic range, and the midrange, with a budget of no more than 200 dollars.

In this new special article we raise the bar to 300 dollars, a figure that I consider as “the end of the road” as going beyond that means entering a huge gap between quality/price.

By this we mean something very simple, as the difference between a 250 dollars processor and one that costs 400 dollars, for example, is almost nonexistent when playing a game, and this means that for every dollars invested beyond a particular limit you don’t necessarily receive a performance boost that is really worth it.

Best Gaming CPU under 200 dollars 2015

We continue with our series of articles dedicated to one of the most important components of any computer, the processor, and this time we will focus on choosing the best CPUs to play games for 140-200 dollars.

In our previous special and we already made a short summary of the main advantages of AMD and Intel processors, but now we jump to the midrange and we must introduce some important changes, because though most of the previously mentioned points remain applicable, there are some updates to keep in mind.

Before making our last point, you need to keep in mind that with a maximum budget of 200 dollars you can’t access the Core i7 or the Core i5 with an unlocked multiplier.

Best Gaming CPU under 100 dollars 2015

The processor is an important component for a lot of tasks, and its election makes many users doubt whether which one could be the best, and that’s why we have launched a series of guides in which we will choose the best CPUs to play with different price ranges.

In this first article we set a limit of 100 dollars, though we will leave a margin of five dollars to not limit our range of options so much, as this is a budget that is usually very common for users who want to mount hardware for very little money or who simply want to renew their PCs.

AMD Radeon R9 390X vs GeForce TITAN X vs GeForce GTX 980 Ti

We have new leaks around the AMD Radeon R9 390X, which faced against nothing less than the most powerful Nvidia graphics card, the GeForce GTX TITAN X and the still unannounced Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti, which uses the same GPU that the TITAN X, the GM200, but in a cropped version.

On the other hand, we can see the one that may be the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti at the bottom of the graphics.

To draw a clear conclusion of performance, all graphics were tested under 19 different games reaching 4K resolutions, graphs that were accompanied by an Intel Core i7-4790K @ 4.20 GHz with 16 GB of DDR3 memory to avoid any bottlenecks that influence the charts negatively.

MSI GS70 STEALTH PRO-099 review (GTX970M, Intel Core i7-4710HQ, 16gb ram)

You’d never believe the power that lies within the MSI GS70 STEALTH PRO-099, a fine 17 inches laptop. And not it offers that, it has much more. This is our analysis.


With a fairly conservative and not very “aggressive” design, this is the ultimate thoroughbred from manufacturer MSI.

Of course it is difficult to imagine before turning on the MSI GS70 PRO-099, all what lies beneath the apparently simple chassis, but we can tell you that there are many surprises (mostly positive) that we have discovered as we were exploring its features.

ASUS Strix 7.1 surround gaming headset Review

After a remarkable series of Strix graphics, Asus is betting once more for this series with such a unique and aggressive aesthetics, in this case with a pair of 7.1 gaming headphones that comes to compete with alternatives such as the Razer Tiamat.

It is a kit that includes external DSP with an integrated noise cancelling microphone, headphones with real 7.1 microgo sound, and a whole lot of other functions in order to improve the surrounding sensation and amplify some frequencies, for example, to highlight the footsteps in shooting games. A really ambitious bet that we will now see how it behaves.

Lately we have seen excellent gaming systems of all kinds, but one of the classics within the portable gaming world is definitely ASUS.

The new ASUS ROG G751 is their new generation with small improvements in design and it incorporates the latest technologies in the form of Haswell processors of four powerful cores, Nvidia graphics cards of Maxwell architecture, new storage systems and new latest generation screens in order to get a general result of excellent performance in a highly refined chassis.ASUS ROG G751JY-DH72X

BenQ XL2420G Gaming Monitor Review

Although NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology has been among us for over a year, it hasn’t been until the last few months that we’ve started to see monitors specially designed to make the most of a reasonable price, always taking into account the fact that we’re talking about high quality peripherals aimed at a public range where price is not the most important variable. We’ve tested the new BenQ XL2420G and this are our impressions.

In spite of its clear “gaming” orientation, the new BenQ monitor displays a discrete and almost conservative esthetic, except for subtle parts in red. The panel fits very easily in one of the best supports we’ve seen in years, with height adjustment (130 mm.) and inclination (from -5°to +20°) and that incorporates solutions as practical as a cable conductor and a transport hook.

Along the bezel we find capacitive tactile buttons to control menus, the power button and the integrated IR emitter (necessary for 3D mode). Unlike other models, BenQ has situated it on the lower bezel, which may be a problem if we use bulky peripherals as a wheel or a joystick with throttle. The firm also includes the S-Switch, a control system where we can select between three predefined modes and navigate through the configuration menus more comfortably.
