Upgrade Your Computer for Higher Performance

This section will cover mainly two parts of that I showed up below.
  • When you should consider upgrading your PC and when you should forgo upgrading and purchase a new PC
  • What components in your PC can and should be upgraded
Upgrade Computer system
The first decision you are faced with is whether to upgrade or purchase a new PC. If you are still using a PC with a primitive processor (processor very slow and old) the decision has already been made for you. You should be concerned only with deciding how much you will spend on a new PC.
If you are still using a PC with a old processor, the decision may not seem so clear cut. The 486 processor is more than six years old and is really not capable of running the current batch of software at an acceptable performance level.

Consider the fact that you have to look not only at how you are currently using your PC, but how you are likely to use it in the future. If you have not moved up to a new operating systems such as Windows XP or Vista, you probably will in the next year because most major software manufacturers have ceased producing software that runs under Windows XP .32-bit and 64-bit are technical terms you will hear whenever the discussion turns to operating systems and/or programming, among other
things. Quite simply, they refer to how computer instructions and data are processed by your computer, either in 32-bit units or in 64-bit units.
Because a 64-bit unit is twice as large as a 32-bit unit, the assumption isthat 64-bit programs and operating systems are twice as fast as their 32-bit counterparts. Twice as fast may be stretching it a bit, but the basic underlying assumption is generally true. 62-bit programs and operating systems are faster than 32-bit programs and operating systems

If you have a Pentium-class (Pentium IV) computer or better, then you should concentrate on examining and upgrading those components in your computer that might be adversely affecting your PC's performance. If you are not sure which components in
your computer might be adversely affecting its performance, after you completing evry articles by read, that I'm going to posts under "Computer Hardware Doctor" you will know for sure.

Pentium-class computers are computers equipped with either a Pentium III, Pentium IV,Pentium dual core & etc..These are all
microprocessors that have been manufactured in the last few years and constitute the current high end of Intel Corporation's microprocessor line.

You may be surprised to learn that almost every component in your PC, including the processor,memory, video card, disk drives, and more are candidates to be upgraded.

Which components you decide to upgrade often will be determined by how you use your PC, but not always. Some upgrades make sense to perform simply because the price of the particular component is too good to pass up. In the last two years, the price of memory and hard disk drives have dropped dramatically. So first you need to decide how you want to upgrade your pc with components of it. so keep reading every day you'll get the idea from our ever update since today.
