How To Reduce Lag In Online Gaming

There was always some amount of lag in the game, especially when there were lots of players logged in. That’s an experience you can have only so often before you realize that it’s either time to optimize your PC to reduce lag as much as possible, or don’t even bother playing at all. To really optimize for gaming, you’ll need to take a very focused approach to fine-tune the areas of performance that really matter.

CPU Socket Types Explained: From Socket 5 To BGA [MakeUseOf Explains]

Computer processors have a home. The socket. Most people ignore this piece of hardware because it has little obvious functional impact. Sockets don’t hinder or help performance they’re standardized in any given line of processors. Why should you care? If you ever intend on upgrading your processor, the socket on your motherboard will limit the upgrades you can choose from.

What One Website Do You Value Above All Others? [We Ask You]

I must admit I’m a little addicted to the Web. Not only is it my place of work, it’s where I often choose to hang out during any downtime. I search for random things on Google, I learn new things on Wikipedia, I watch videos on YouTube, talk to people on Facebook and Twitter, buy crap on eBay, and consume awesomeness via Reddit. The seven websites mentioned above comprise the list of essential websites I recently suggested keep the Web turning.

Bloodline Champions: Free-to-Play Skill-Based PvP Arena For Competitive Players [MUO Gaming]

Bloodline Champions (BLC) is a top-down F2P game with high hopes: to create a game where players can play against each other in an arena that rewards skill, not repetition or luck. If you’ve ever heard of the term “e-sports,” this game is a prime candidate. It’s all about aiming, timing, reacting, and making the right decisions – and it’s HARD. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, though, as a game that rewards skill wouldn’t be very rewarding if it was easy.

7 Vital Google Image Search Hacks

Where do you go when you need to search for something? Probably Google. Where do you go when you need to find images? I’m guessing the same again.

With all these images right at your fingertips, how do you go about finding the one image you’re really looking for?

3 Neat Web Services To Visualize & Analyze Your Last.fm Profile

With over 215,000 plays starting since 2008, I’ve always been a firm believer in Last.fm. If you’re into getting social on the Internet, it’s so much easier to link a friend to your Last.fm profile versus going on and on about your musical preferences. Last.fm allows your tastes to be an open book to anyone who might be curious, and I like that. Over the past few years, Last.fm has solidified itself as the best music scrobbling platform online.
