Upgrades To Consider
WHY YOU SHOULD UPGRADE RAM?
Adding more memory is the easiest and most affordable way to upgrade a computer, whether a PC or a Laptop. We install RAM or you can purchase RAM from us and install it if you have the skills.
How much RAM will you need? You will notice a significant improvement if you upgrade to 8GB but for heavier tasks or gaming, you should consider 16GB.
UPGRADING YOUR GRAPHICS OR VIDEO CARD
If you’re a serious gamer, this is a most important upgrade. Most PC manufacturers tend to have integrated graphics cards rather than dedicated graphics cards to save on costs.
Most modern systems integrated graphics is good enough for most users but many who play games such as Steam are upgrading their graphics cards. Contact Us to find out what our recommendations are and how much it will cost to upgrade your video card.
INSTALL A FASTER STORAGE DRIVE
Whether you are running out of space or want faster performance a new hard drive is necessary. A full hard drive impacts performance. Computers with less than 10% space will perform poorly as the system needs that space to function well.
Consider a Solid State Drive (SSD). On average, a 5400RPM drive might achieve write speeds up to 100Mbps, a 7200RPM drive up to 150Mbps, and a solid state drive over 500Mbps. There are also higher end SSDs that have incredibly high write speeds of 1500Mbps and more. The downside of a SSD is they have a smaller capacity and are more expensive.
UPGRADE THE PROCESSOR
REPLACE THE POWER SUPPLY
Your computer may be rather noisy, or could be locking up or even shutting down. These are signs that you power supply needs to be replaced. No computer runs well when it is hot and if left unattended, it could lead to more serious damage. Contact Us right away to book an appointment.
REPLACE THE SOUND CARD
REPLACE THE NETWORK CARD
Is your Internet speed slow or are you constantly losing your Internet? Due to cost savings, most computers have network adapters that are built directly onto the motherboard and they might, at some point, need to be replaced by a network card. Contact us to discuss what we can do for you.
