Upgrading your PC
When upgrading or building a new PC, there are clearly many different considerations, not the least of which is the rapidly changing technology. It is only too easy to wait another month or two to see what is going to happen. Think of it this way: Cars keep changing, but when you need a new one, you don't avoid purchasing it because the next model year might be better. If you did, then you'd be stuck with a vehicle that tends to break down. A PC is much the same. If it can't keep up with the superhighway of the Internet and software applications, it isn't providing what you need. When upgrading, do not look at only a single part (with the possible exception of gamers and video cards). If your system seems too slow, try to determine why.
We can help with all of your upgrade needs and wants. Call us and we can help you decide on the best solution for your computer needs
Is the software making heavy graphics demands? Perhaps you should upgrade not only the video card, but also the motherboard to take advantage of AGP technology and faster bus speeds. Perhaps all you really need is more memory. The bottom line is to identify what you're trying to accomplish, and make decisions based on that.
Finally, make sure that you've paid attention to what's going on in the computer world.
Consider where there have been major advances, such as increases in bus speeds or the implementation of new technologies. Look for major changes in direction, such as the current one from CRT's to LCD panels. Then, just go for it!
Don't forget to backup your system before making any changes to it!
