PwR vs FB.. Well more like playing with…

So, Snowy and I are going to try and organise a Gaming night with some FB guys and PwR.

We want to pick a FREE to play game. We don’t want to vs each other, we want to have mixed teams.

I know the pic says otherwise, but FB and PwR sitting in a tree just would not have looked as tough.

Any suggestions for a game will be appreciated.

Vodafone 4g 50GB Mobile plan

Vodafone have released in Australia, there new Wireless mobile broadband plans.

It’s a bit dear at $140.00 a month but it does what it says.

If your stuck with poor ADSL plans and live a little to far from the exchange like me,

it is nice to be able to get a LOT more speed.

ADSL2  speeds 8000/1000

Vodafone Cube 82000/40000

Speeds vary but it is very fast.  Down side is, in gaming, my ping is around 1/3 higher.

Predator X34

Asus have released a gaming monitor. The Preditor X34.

It’s not quite 4k, but it is considered to be the best gaming monitor out there at the moment.

Boz and myself have one and we love it.

It has a G sync to always give you the best possible refresh rate for any given game.

I do find the controls a bit hard to sort out though.

x34

 

 

4K monitors.

Just as a heads up, there are a  lot of new 4k monitors out there that are really cheap.

How do they go? Well, really good. I grabbed the Samsung 4k and I’m loving it.

I bought the Samsung due to reviews and specs. So far, love the Samsung, but feel it could do some things better.
