Technical Specs: Best-In-Class

Our purpose built premium facility, including our game stations, peripherals, and enterprise-class network infrastructure, are beyond superb.

gaming-tower-side-view_223x299Selected from our decades of custom computer building and repair experience under our “San Diego PC Help” brand name, our stations are continuously being upgraded as the technology improves. All hardware uses latest OEM drivers.

  • Processor: Intel modern i5/i7 (typically i5-4690K). The engine that drives the machine.
  • Memory: 16GB high speed gaming RAM. Run more apps and games simultaneously.
  • Video Card: GeForce GTX 660 Ti (2GB GDDR5, 192-bit) or GeForce GTX 760 (2GB GDDR5, 256-bit). The key component to smooth, buttery frame rates.
  • Sound Card: Xonar DG with gaming optimized headphone amp. Higher quality & better performance than on-board.
  • Network Card:  Intel Gigabit PCI-e adapter. High reliability and faster throughput than the built-in NIC.
  • Power Supply: Seasonic 750W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC. Ensures stability and provides ample power required by the system.
  • Casing:  Housed in our custom wiring bunker with a Cooler Master full tower case. Important for design and air flow.

EVGA_GTX_760_300x198Our top-tier peripherals are hand-picked by the most serious of gamers on our team.

Our design aesthetics and principles give us the opportunity to offer a clean, fresh experience to arena participants. Everything was built from the ground up just for gaming.

  • Electrical: dedicated, redundant 110volt 12 gauge electrical wire with power conditioners and backup power supply systems.
  • Circuits: One dedicated 20 amp circuit per three stations
  • Room materials: constructed using sound dampening materials to reduce vibration and external noise
  • Cooling and ventilation: “green” energy-efficient HVAC system with wifi thermostat, new duct work and vents strategically placed to provide perfect airflow
  • Design: A fully realized 3-D rendering was created using special software. The virtualized model guided every aspect of construction

Our own on-premise dedicated servers are perfect for a multi-player environment: speed is near instant, especially when compared to public Internet servers which are often overcrowded and sluggish. Public servers can also host malicious players whose only goal is to ruin the experience for others or are tainted with inappropriate, distracting language. Our private servers are safe and we have complete control. We can even issue special commands to enhance the in-game experience for players. Available server titles include:

  • Minecraft
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Source & 1.6
  • Team Fortress 2
  • America’s Army 3
  • Killing Floor
  • Left 4 Dead
Our lag-free voice servers are a perfect way to get the in-game communication going. We offer:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • TeamSpeak
  • Ventrillo
  • Mumble

In the future, we will invest in an on-premise SSD server.  Game stations will become diskless and instead will load their operating systems from one single image on the server over the network. All games will updated simultaneously reducing wait time and bandwidth.  Load times will decrease (a sata 3 hard drive read/write speed is 600mbs vs. a LAN which is 1000 mbs). A redundant backup server will provide hot-swap capability in the event of an outage. Server specs will include:

  • 6 x 3TB raid 10 hard drives (read times are 2gbs / second)
  • 8 core processor
  • 6 NICs: 1 for internet, 5 for load balancing
  • 2TB SSD (game disk)
  • 1TB SSD (load balancing)
  • Dedicated SSD for popular games (such as League of Legends) to reduce requests
  • Hot-swap power supplies

“We had my daughter’s 11th birthday party at Gamesync and it was a success. The kids had an great time and several said it was the best birthday party they ever attended. I think the kids could have stayed there for hours.” Susanne A.

“We had a group of boys for my son’s 13th birthday party and they had a really fun time! The staff was polite and helpful which was great because a few of the kids weren’t regular gamers.” T W.

2/2/14, Yelp Reiew

“The kids play, eat pizza/snacks, everyone sings happy birthday: you’re in, you’re out, you’re done. Would gladly do this again and save the hassle of a traditional party which a 12 year old thinks is lame anyway. He was on cloud 9.” Nancy F.
