Karachi
Hey all,
I currently live in Karachi and throughout the previous 2 years I have unfortunately lost 3 motherboards and 2 CPUs to voltage disruptions and shortages.
During these incidents I had my PC hooked up to a UPS, stabilizer, and most recently both.
The only viable solution that I have been recommended is to go buy a pure sine UPS and a top of the line PSU to make sure this doesn't happen again.
So, there are two paths I can choose, either spend around 30k-40k rs to get a proper UPS setup (and with the increased prices of GPUs these types of costs are really intimidating me) or just get a good gaming laptop.
What would you guys recommend ?

You would still need a UPS for your DSL/ONT/Router/WiFi etc if you go for gaming laptop if you play online multiplayer games. Desktop offers upgradeability and higher performance but with GPU shortages these days laptop might be more accessible, however, gaming laptops aren't that cheap as well.

Anyway, what we can offer you here is pros and cons for both routes, but it would be your decision. If you go the UPS & Desktop route then have a read of this and go for an Online Pure Sine Wave UPS like SMT 1500i or eqvivalent https://www.pakgamers.com/index.php?threads/electricity-backup-ups-for-gaming-pc.300406/post-3020178

If you go for gaming laptop route then depending on your budget you might find suggestions on PG forums here, search and you shall receive. Best of luck.

    RE 4 VR is charting very high. Exciting
    They really did seem to put alot of effort into it. Seems much better than the shoehorned VR in RE7.
