    Budget 90k+ New Work laptop - win or Mac?

    Graphic Cards Need a solid 1080p 144hz graphics card

    Galax is fine. Been using one low end card of theirs for over 3-4 years. Their service is also done by supertron who have a decent reputation. PSU is fine. These cards don't eat crazy power.

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw...

    This is one of the best movies ever made. I've probably seen this movie 5-6 times cos it is so good and well presented. Some of the attention to detail is incredible. One of the best films of all time and probably the best of this century.

    You can transfer upto a theoretical 300mbps over 2.4 GHz over a single channel. 30mbps should be easy.

    Online Game Deals - Steam, Amazon, Origin, GOG, Humble Bundles

    Tencent has a stake in Ubisoft, Blizzard, Activision, Paradox, Riot, Glu, Grinding Gear and a few dozen others. Then by that logic everything made by them is spyware too. You should stop using Ola, stop buying TVs from TCL and using dozens of startups funded by them.
