Rainbow 6 Seige: Master the art of destruction and gadgetry in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Face intense close-quarters combat, high lethality, tactical decision making, team play and explosive action within every moment. Engage in a brand-new style of assault using an unrivalled level of destruction and gadgetry!
On defence: Coordinate with your team to transform your environments into strongholds. Trap, fortify and create defensive systems to prevent being breached by the enemy.
On attack: Lead your team through narrow corridors, barricaded doorways and reinforced walls. Combine tactical maps, observation drones, rappelling and more to plan, attack and defuse every situation.
The Gold Edition pack allows the player to choose from dozens of highly trained, Special Forces operators from around the world. Deploy the latest technology to track enemy movement. Shatter walls to open new lines of fire. Breach ceilings and floors to create new access points. Employ every weapon and gadget from your deadly arsenal to locate, manipulate and destroy your enemies and the environment around them.
Running high frames and refresh rates on competitive games allow you to see things sooner and hit what you are aiming at. This Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege high FPS and Hz video shows the benefits of using a powerful graphics card like the GeForce RTX 2080Ti with a 240 Hz monitor.
The base game feels like a modern Counterstrike at first, so you can jump in and get into the lethal shooter gameplay side right away, but much like CS as you learn the various levels the game starts to evolve into a very deep, rather slow tactical shooter, packed full of glorious PVP misdirection and bait movements.
More than just point and shoot, there is a real emphasis on using environmental sounds to locate the enemies in this one too, adding to the tension and everyone slowly creeps about the place, peeping through holes in walls and popping off rounds to cover the sounds created elsewhere.
You can play the game in a single-player mode they call ‘situations’ and this is great for trying out new things without having to wait for the match to end to try things again. Multiplayer is also doable in solo queue but the game really comes into its own when you team up with mates and get on the microphones.
You don’t actually need to have the highest-end graphics card to enjoy this game too, 60+ FPS is achievable on entry-level GTX configs (remember this game bonus offer is ONLY for RTX graphics cards though), simply don a riot shield, work with your team, and have fun emptying the clip 🙂
EVGA have kicked off another awesome offer and this time it’s for the awesome Sci-Fi thriller – Deliver Us The Moon!
This offer is valid from February 3rd 2020 while code supplies last, and only from authorised retailers (PB Tech in NZ)
Set in an apocalyptic future where Earth’s natural resources are depleted. In an effort to solve the energy crisis, global powers created the World Space Agency and secured a promising new source of energy on the moon.
The World Space Agency colonized and operated from the moon until one fateful night all communications with Earth ceased and the energy source was lost. Now, years later, you assume the role of Earth’s last astronaut on a do-or-die mission to investigate what happened and save humanity. During this adventure, your only companion is a small robot named ASE. Together you will traverse the moon, explore abandoned facilities, gather clues and ultimately uncover the secrets and hidden agendas of those long gone!
Will you save mankind or be forgotten in the dark abyss of Space? Whatever the case it promises to be an awesome adventure!
This offer is for EVGA RTX Graphics Cards specifically, and the game takes full advantage of the real-time ray tracing technology, adding opaque reflections to every suitable surface, transparent reflections in glass and metal surfaces & even ray-traced shadows for full immersion 🙂

Much like the existing Ti identifier, these new ‘S’ models (EG: ROG-STRIX-RTX2060S-O8G-GAMING) indicate the increased performance of the much loved RTX 2060, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 options – with the new models named RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 SUPER. Right now, Nvidia is busy showing off the founders’ edition cards but there are some wonderful new aftermarket versions for these ones too!
Kicking off with the RTX 2060 SUPER models we get a 2GB memory upgrade bringing the total to 8GB onboard. This is nice for those playing games such as Apex Legends, which displays a memory warning when running the game on max settings with the 6GB card.
The new RTX 2070S is running 8GB VRAM also, but the GPU architecture this time is taken from the RTX 2080 (Turing 104, classic RTX 2070 is using Turing 106) so it’s looking a lot like a cut-down RTX 2080 🙂 This, of course, makes the RTX 2070 Super Graphics Card power requirements change heavier due that increased performance, with the RTX 2070S now using the 8pin + 6pin power connection rather than a single 8-pin seen on the classic RTX 2070.
The new GTX 1650 Graphics Card is available now in New Zealand, giving us a another great low cost option for gaming PC builds!
Designed to be the cheapest option in the new GTX 16XX series, these new GTX 1650 position themselves just above the GTX 1050Ti performance wise, and just behind the GTX 1060 – for a similar price. In games it’s looking very good indeed, the GTX1650 is a nice upgrade from the popular GTX 1050, or a very nice upgrade from the GTX 950 🙂 The best bit is we get to enjoy the updated cooler designs from the masters at Gigabyte, Asus and EVGA, so with these new cards in our systems they’ll look and run better than ever.
Looking specifically at the current PC chart-toppers, Apex Legends, Fortnite and PUBG, a little tweaking to the settings gives us excellent performance even in some pretty intense fire fights.
The smaller size and affordable price point make these new GTX 1650 a top choice for a lounge computer, perfect for playing games with your mates – the new Mortal Kombat is looking particularly good!
Looking closer at the fastest models from the new arrivals, namely the EVGA SC Black Edition and Gaming Edition, both these GTX 1650 models have an extremely fat custom cooler, not long, just heavy on the slots it takes up. As this cooler really is big, be aware if you’re planning a PC with it first check your motherboard spacing (the graphics card might block a slot you had intended for WiFi). Both require an additional 6Pin power input so plan for 75watts and also important to note is there are just 3 monitor outputs on these new GPU, 1x HDMI (4K 60FPS ready) and 2x DisplayPorts.
We can’t wait to build with all the new options as they arrive in NZ, the new Gigabyte version looks especially awesome with the black/grey coolers and slimmer slot form factor to allow for more traditional Gaming PC builds, and we’re excited to see which versions have no additional 6Pin required for some mini Gaming PC builds, whatever the case it looks like fun times ahead!
From November 29th – June 18th 2019, get yourself a GTX 1050, GTX 1050Ti, GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 desktop Graphics Card or Gaming PC featuring this hardware from the selected range and you can register to redeem a bunch of bonus gear from the Fortnite Counterattack Set + 2000 VBUCKS!
The Fortnite Counterattack Set which includes the following:
– “Reflex” Outfit
– “Pivot” Glider
– “Angular Axe” Pickaxe
– “Response Unit” Back Bling
This promotion is valid from 29/11/18 – 22/05/2019 or while code stock last.
