    Selling i5 6600 but what's next? i5 9400 or ryzen 2/3600

    I suggest you stick with what you have. Why are you selling? You won't get a good price because cheaper options are available in the market: https://www.olx.com.pk/item/hp-desktop-computer-slimline-260-i5-6th-gen-pc-iid-863500790 As for ryzen if you were going to buy one you would buy the cpu...

    My cousin wants to build a Ryzen PC for gaming. Stupid idea?

    x3470 is core2duo architecture. 4th gen i.e. haswell is far better than that. Zer0 you've probably made your decision by now so do tell us what you went with.

    Moving back to Pakistan -- Question related to bringing my gaming PC

    Yes it'll work for both. Computer UPS do not provide long backup time. They are designed to protect your computer from short term voltage changes and to provide just enough time to save files and shutdown the PC in the event of a mains powerloss. So let's say 10-15 minutes backup time. For...

    Moving back to Pakistan -- Question related to bringing my gaming PC

    You'd probably be better of selling your PC at home and buying a new one in Pakistan. Most things are available here. As for power supply fluctuations any computer UPS will suffice. They all have voltage regulation built in these days. It's called AVR. An 800va-1kva one will be enough for your...

    PTCL Broadband 8Mbps Low Line Parameters but Good SNR. Why?

    The problem is you're still using ptcl. Switch to 4g already. PTCL is for suckers.

    [OT] .::The Official 3G/4G LTE Thread::.

    We may see further consolidation between the cellcos if this license renewal and low ARPU business keeps going on. My money is on Ufone getting acquired by one of the others. Instead of 4 operators we will be left with just 3. The reduced competition will hurt consumers but is to be expected in...

    SSL certificate has expired

    Site admins don't seem to care about the site. They've let it be used to spread malware and spam and now don't even bother to renew the SSL cert. The link to the marketplace in the top right doesn't work either.

    netflix doesn't have to abide by Pemra's censorship rules so that is why it is being blacklisted. no doubt the army and agencies don't want pakistanis consuming indian content. free speech is not in their interest.

    Wireless Service Providers in Karachi

    How much do you plan to download in a month? To downgrade from the 20Mbps that zong is giving you to 2Mbps is going to suck. You also won't be able to download as much on 2Mbps - the lower speed itself is a limit on how much you can download. I don't recommend doing this. Get a fiber connection...

    [OT] .::The Official 3G/4G LTE Thread::.

    2G will live on in the shape of IoT devices. There's also a case to be made for 2G being the gateway through which you rope in new low income customers who will eventually upgrade to your faster services. So they can't get rid of 2G completely. What they can do is get rid of 3G. Other countries...

    Sales tax 19.5 percent on broadband users in sindh .

    FED is not sales tax. FED goes to the center while this is something the provincial govt. is levying. The environment for IT is generally very hostile in Pakistan. It's why our ICT exports are in single digit billions while indians export $100bn worth of IT services annually.

    LCD glass replacement in ISB/RWP?

    Maybe get checked out by a doctor? If this keeps happening to you there may be a health related reason behind it. Oh and buy one of these or a similar strap.

    [OT] .::The Official 3G/4G LTE Thread::.

    Zong ftth will compete with zong mbb. Also they will have to lay their own cables which will be a huge PITA. I guess they are acknowledging that 5G will not be good enough to serve all last mile users. I thought it would be enough but there was an article I read recently that said that it...
