PC components to upgrade
Are you wondering where to start? Take a look at the list of computer hardware below to find out which parts you should be upgrading.
At the heart of the computer is the CPU. The Central Processing Unit is the most important part of your PC. It is where all the calculations occur. Upgrading your CPU helps to improve the speed of your computer. Make sure that you buy a processor that is compatible with your computer and that it delivers a faster performance than the one that you already have. It is important to ensure that you buy a processor with the socket format that matches your computer. Once you have purchased a CPU you will need to remove your PC’s current processor and install the new one.
RAM is short for Random Access Memory. It is the most common form of memory in computers. Similar to the short-term memory of people, Computer RAM focuses on the current task. It allows the computer to access data quickly so that tasks can be completed easily. Data is kept in RAM when the computer is running, however, RAM loses the data when the computer is switched off. Upgrading your Computer RAM will help to make your PC run faster.
With operating systems using more memory than ever, it is becoming important to equip your computer with additional memory. If you want to be able to open numerous tabs in Chrome or use a few programs at once, a bigger RAM is helpful. The minimum amount of RAM that you should be looking at is 8GB but 16GB is a better option. You will need to check what type of RAM you need for your computer as older PCs require a different type of RAM to the latest models.
A graphics card controls how pictures and videos are shown on your computer screen. The graphics card that you have will impact the quality of the image. If you are an avid gamer, you may want to invest in a new graphics card. Some graphics cards are easy to use by plugging them into the slot in the PC’s motherboard. Others are built into the motherboard. Something to consider when you buy a graphics card is whether your CPU is fast enough.
Looks that match your desktop performance
After you have upgraded your computer hardware, you can customise the appearance of your desktop. Give your desktop computer a distinctive style, by buying uniquely designed:
A computer case is the tower of the computer which contains most of the computer’s components. With a range of different cases to choose from, you can pick a style that best matches your requirements.
