And once again, one more time, I'm bak

Hi, I didn't see you there, or didn't you see me here i think.

It's been a long time, almost 3 years!!! It wasn't actually a bad time for me, i wasn't down, i was busy getting up, going up. I've been working hard, overcoming some things, improving myself, becoming a "better" man [bad or good is subjective] for my own benefit of course, i don't have to change for someone else [noone should anyway].

As always i keep playing videogames, or gaming as it's known nowadays. I'm actually consider myself a gamer, not because i want to feel part of that community [i don't belong to any group] but because i like gaming, though my actual selection and taste of games have changed. I don't have time for RPG nor puzzle games anymore, i want and look for some quick action, not long game to play. So i mostly play some action and racing games, i'm actually focusing on racing games, i mean i can play some few races when i have the time and i'm not worried nor anxious about what's coming next, i know it will be just more tracks. Though, i've been playing some sim games, which require some extra time from my part to actually get further. I've been playing American Truck Simulator, nice game BTW, i play it with my Steam controller with gyro activated, i use the gyro feature to turn my truck in game, it's actually fun driving this way.

In this time i built 3 computers, i sold my AMD FX 8 cores machine to get into mini itx builds, i love small form factor builds and computers but i had bad experiences with them, not that bad though, it's just i'm kinda obssesed with cpu and motherboard [chipset] temps and mini itx's chipsets get hot. I did have 3 mini itx PCs, one of them was actually very cool but it was because it was a lowend PC with a lowend chipset [it was a system with AMD Athlon 5350 on AM1 platform in case you wonder]. The other 2 PCs were in FM2+ platform, i loved them but they always got hot [the motherboards anyway] while gaming so i always felt uncomfortable about it. Right now i have a Ryzen system, which i built just this week, last monday to be exact. This time i got a micro atx motherboard which works really fine [when it comes to temps] and the performance of the whole machine is great, it's the most powerful PC i've ever had, i'm really happy with it.

Changing of subject, i have some plans for me in the near future, plans for this blog. I want to post more, giving my opinion on actual things, things noone has the balls to say. But i want to contribute for the best, not for the bad.... but again, bad or good is subjective, what's good for the spider, it's a horror for the fly.

To finish, some hardware porn, because come on, i know you love it, you perverts.

Open bench on a budget lol

I'm back.... once again

Hi there, i'm back once again. Nope, i was not dead [obviously], i was not in jail nor escaping from justice either, i was just sort of living and dying at the same time, yeah it's complicated, nothing is normal with me lol

Life is certainly something complex and i was somehow making it easier for me, perhaps not easy but tolerable. I was just living my own life and not caring about everyone else life. But we humans are social beings [i don't like it but it is that way] and some of our interactions affect each other, if not most of them. I just can't live apart and pretend nothing is happening in this sad crazy world, i'm not empathetic though, so it's hard for me. I'm actually antipathetic, i practically cannot feel pitty about someone else, why i would do that? Either way i'm eager to help anyone who asks my help, as long that person does not take advantage of me.

Anyway, i finally left my mom's house, i live by my own now, i feel great about it. It's so good to be independent, i'm the only one who lead the way, my own way. I continue gaming, i think is somthing i will do until my life's sunset, i totally enjoy gaming, it's fun and it makes me to forget about problems and release everyday stress. BTW i built a new gaming machine, i sold my former gaming pc and now i have a mini itx gaming pc, which it's so cool!!! i'll upload pics later.

Love is still away from me, yeah i do have a lady friend with benefits but it's not the same, i want a partner, someone to share, hang out and live together. I don't want romantic love, that's shit, i do want a partner to grow, share and fulfill my dreams and hers too, helping each other in daily tasks and having future plans in common. But as always, i'm asking too much.

To finish, it still surprises me how stupid people are, or how religion makes them so stupid. It's 21th century ladies and gentlemen, you cannot continue believing that nonsense, you don't live in caverns anymore, open your mind and embrace what's outside, this wonderful world and universe. They say god is love/peace but i fail to see love/peace among those who believe, i just see hate, confrontation and war. Religion is certainly outdated, it has no use anymore and i'm sure it's going to be just another myth very soon :)

I'm back... once more

Hi there, after a long time i'm back again.... i hope staying for this time hehe

A lot of things happened to me since my last post, the most important of them is my grandmother's death, she passed away 2 months ago. She was the one who took care of me as a child so it was very touching. Still i'm a practical/pragmatic human being, no need to mourning, life continues after all. Mmm but i gotta say i will always remember her and all the things she taught to me.

In gaming news, i left gaming... for just one month though, now i'm gaming my ass off lol i kinda regret leaving gaming, i'm so glad gaming again.

I still have the same job, i haven't quit yet, i'm a total coward. I mean coward because i'm afraid of being unemployed for a long time, i don't like this job but it's something i have for sure, it helps me to pay the bills after all. But sooner than later i'm getting another job, where i'll be comfortable and have peace of mind.

Also related to gaming, i upgraded memory RAM of Kalashna [my gaming PC] to 8 gb ram. Previously it just had 4 gb memory ram and games run great, but now with more memory games run great and they have plenty of memory to use, OS overall works better with more memory, no more bottlenecks, specially with these moderns memory-hungry web browsers.

Well, i think this is good just for coming back. I still have a lot to say, i'll be doing that more often, until then later :)

New graphic card

Hi there, as the title says i got a new graphic card, not the best out there but it does a great job. It's a MSI Nvidia Geforce GTX 650, i actually wanted a GTX 650 Ti but it wasn't available at the moment i got this.

Anyway, its specs are the following:
MSI Geforce GTX 650 Overclocked
GPU Clock: 1072 MHz
Memory size: 2 GB GDDR 5 [5000 MHz]
Memory bus: 128 bit
Interface: PCI Express 3.0 [though my motherboard only supports PCI Express 2.0]

It does have a lot of great features, for example Nvidia Kepler architecture, PhysX, Nvidia adaptive vertical sync just to mention some of them. The card performs great, besides at its side it's my old EVGA GT 545 graphics card which handles physics in PhysX enabled games, all of my games are running better now and i'm glad of that.

With this card i said goodbye to scaling the resolution, all games run in my display's native resolution [1600x900] but sooner than later i'm getting a full HD display and i'm sure this card will handle it just fine. Yes i know in PC gaming the new [and great] boy is 4k displays but i'm a budget gamer you know, so i'll wait for that, full HD should be good for me, at least for now.

My gaming PC

After a long wait, since april when i bought a nice Gigabyte motherboard, i finally built my gaming PC. It's a budget gaming rig, it's not the best out there but it will serve its purpose.

Kalashna, my gaming PC, reuses some hardware i already owned but the main parts are brand new and i'm upgrading the reused parts soon. I actually built it a week ago but i have no camera now so i cannot take it pics [a friend of mine haven't returned my camera yet], that's why i didn't post before.

Kalashna's specs are the following:
Mainboard: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3
CPU: AMD FX 8320 3.5 GHz [4.0 GHz turbo], 8 MB cache L2, 8 MB cache L3
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 4 GB DDR3 1600 8-8-8-24 [going to be upgraded to 8 GB asap]
Primary graphics card: MSI Nvidia Geforce GTX OC 2 GB GDDR5 memory
Secondary graphics card: EVGA Nvida Geforce GT 545 1.5 GB DDR3 memory [it handles PhysX but not dedicated to it]
Hard disk: Western Digital Blue SATA 3, 500 GB, 16 MB cache
Power supply: Diablotek UL series 675 Watts
DVD burner: Lite On DVD burner [this part is not that interesting]
Case Thermaltake V4 Black Edition, 1 rear fan, 1 front fan, 1 bottom fan, 2 top fans [all fans 120mm]
CPU cooler: Cooler Master N520, 2 fans [huge fan if you ask me]

I feel really happy with my new PC build, specially because it will be dedicated just to gaming and perhaps some video encoding when i have the need. As of performance, well i feel it more responsive than my previous gaming setup, but let's remember it's the same graphic cards and i have only 4 gigs of RAM, before i had 8 but despite that games run well and look nice also. I'm proud of my gaming PC and i should be using it a lot, for the purpose it was made: gaming bitch!!!

-->Update: i got a new graphic card, so i have to change the specs.
