Want to upgrade? Here’s what you should know. March 19, 2018

Have you been thinking of making some upgrades to your computer? Here’s a look at the different types of upgrades and what they can do.


Upgrading the memory can improve the overall performance of a computer. Increasing memory can also increase the speed of the computer, decrease load times and is often a affordable option.

Video Card

Are you a gamer? Upgrading your video card may make gaming even more fun. Computers with older video cards may not be able to handle the complex graphics that come with today’s games. Installing a new video card that’s capable of handling the latest graphics-related demands may help speed up your computer overall.

Keep in mind: Some video card upgrades will also require you to upgrade your power supply.

Hard Drive

It’s less common to upgrade hard drives than it used to be, because modern hard drives have gotten so large that most users never run out of disk space. However, if you are running out of space or your computers performance is suffering, a new hard drive may be an affordable fix.

Adding a Solid-State Drive to the current system may also provide dramatic improvement. SSDs can improve load time and the overall speed of the computer.

Other upgrades

If you’re considering an upgrade such as a new CPU, motherboard, sound card, network card, etc. it may be more cost effective to purchase a new computer.
