It is important to remember your computer is a system with
all the components working together as a team. Your system
is only as strong as it's weakest link, the worst-performing
member of the team.
To understand the benefits of upgrading take a look at some
of the key players.
CPU (Central Processing Unit, Processor)
The brains of it all. Simply put the CPU is the component
that executes instructions. A powerful component indeed,
but not the most important in terms of overall performance.
The CPU relies heavily on these other components for support.
One of the most common upgrades and greatest boost to performance.
The cpu uses memory to hold instructions and data needed
to complete tasks. If the data is not accessible in memory
it must search external sources (hard drive, cd) to find
the data, place it into memory then continue possessing.
This is where all your data is stored for future use.
Of course the more programs you install and the more files
you store the more room you will need. Rotation speed is
how fast the drive can access data and also plays an important
role in performance.
CD or DVD
The CD ROM drive has virtually taken place of the floppy
And with the DVD drive's ability to play both cds and movies
many have found this to be a suitable replacement as well.
CD or DVD Burner
Once an expensive luxury now an affordable solution. With
the ability to make your own discs you can back up your
important data, create back up copies of your computer cds,
music cds and movies.
