• Top 5 Computer Upgrades

    Boost Your Productivity & Performance

     Is your computer slow?  Before you decide to throw in the towel, you might want to consider boosting your performance with an upgrade. Here's a list of common upgrades to get your computer back in shape.

    Our favorite upgrade in 2017 continues to be SSD drives.  Solid state drives are fast.  Your old hard drive is most likely a SATA or yikes! an IDE drive.  Boost your startup time.  An average SSD configured correctly can get windows 10 up and running in 10-15 Seconds. SATA might take 1 minute or more.  SSD drives will speed everything up on your computer that reads or rights to the drive including virtual memory the stuff that runs your computer when your RAM is full.        

    Another Favorite upgrade is Dual or Triple monitors!  It's amazing how this will help multi task!  I will never go back.  I tried 3 monitors but it's just too much for me.  

    RAM upgrades are a classic performance booster.  If you have less than 8 Gigs you should consider upgrading some RAM.    RAM may be a wise investment for a modest performance boost.  You will need to do some research and make sure your computer can handle more RAM and what type you need.  

    1. Windows 10 offers some new features as well as enhanced performance.  Is your OS installed as 32bit?  64bit offers better performance.
    2. USB 3.0 ports and devices offer an 10X increase of speed.  USB 3.0 ports in most cases have a insert on the port colored blue.  

     

    If you use graphic intensive programs such as 3d games or Cad a top end video card is a must.

    If your CPU is only single or Dual Core you might want to consider a motherboard upgrade! However the new motherboard may not support your current case, power supply, RAM.  It may be time to compare a major upgrade to a new PC.
