What to upgrade?

Upgrading means that you replace key components in your system to increase its speed and give it more storage capacity. By buying only select components, you can get much of the benefit of a newer and faster PC. You could save money by upgrading your current system instead of buying a new one. It costs less to replace a few components than to buy an entire new system, even though the industry continually introduces better computers at lower prices. The following main components are often using to upgrade PC.

Hardware Components:

Random Access Memory (RAM): A computer uses Random Access Memory to hold temporary instructions and data needs to complete tasks. There are many forms to memory and to choose as you need. The most popular RAM package in use today is the Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) and Single Inline Memory Module (SIMM).

Hard Drive: A permanent data storage device inside your PC, in which to store programs and data when you turn off the computer. The magnetic media that carries the data is on aluminum or glass disks, or platters, with read/write heads on actuator arms controlled by a servo motor. The controller is the support circuitry that acts as the intermediary between the hard drive and the external data bus.

Central Processing Unit (CPU): The terms microprocessor and central processing unit (CPU) mean the same thing. It's that chip inside your computer that many people often describe as the brain of the system. This Chip handles hundreds of calculations per second . it is the quality of the calculations and the speed that they are made that makes the CPU so amazing.† Processors are essentially made by Intel and AMD but there are other companies such as Cyrix, IBM, IDT (Win Chip) that have CPU's on the market. Different types of processor have different shapes and motherboards.

Motherboard: All motherboards come in a basic rectangular shape, but they come in a dizzying variety of sizes. The main circuit board inside the computer case called Motherboard. It provides electrical connections and communication pathways to the various parts of your PC. The particular way components are positioned on a motherboard is called the motherboard's form factor. Now, the AT form factor motherboard makers wind down and shift to ATX. This is also known as the System board or Main board.

Video Card: A video card also known as video adapter, graphics card, display adapter and video board. Video card is an integrated circuit card in a computer. Today, almost all displays and video adapters adhere to a common denominator de facto standard, Video Graphics Array (VGA). VGA describes how data - essentially red, green, blue data streams - is passed between the computer and the display with resolution of the pixels.

Floppy Drive: The floppy drive resides inside the PC. Floppy diskettes are inserted into floppy drives and stores the data. It is also permanent data storage device in your PC, in which to store programs and data. The famous 3.5 inch floppy diskette provides a great and flexible capacity. The floppy disks we use in PCs today hold at most only 1.44 MB (megabytes) of data.

Sound Card: A plug-in optional circuit card called sound card. It is also known as sound blaster. Sound cards perform two functions. First, they take digital information and turn it into sound, outputting the sound through speakers. Second, they take sound that is input through a microphone and turn it into digital data. Virtually all sound cards have two miniature audio jacks for a microphone and a speaker.

CD-ROM/CD-RW/DVD: A device that uses laser optics to read software and file information from a compact disc called Compact Disc-Read Only Memory (CD-ROM) drive. CD-ROM drives enable the system to access CD-ROM discs. Many PCs now come with the Compact Disk-Recordable (CD-R), Compact Disk-Rewritable (CD-RW), and Digital Video Disc (DVD) drives.

Modem: An electronic device that allows computers to communicate over ordinary telephone lines called Modem also known as modulator/demodulator. A modem works with your telephone line to translate analog telephone signals into digital serial data and also translate digital serial data into analog telephone signals. There are two types of modems: internal and external.

  • MS-Windows 95
  • MS-Windows 98
  • MS-Windows 98 Second Edition
  • MS-Windows ME
  • MS-Windows NT
  • MS-Windows 2000 Professional

  • MS-Windows XP Home Edition
  • MS-Windows XP Professional
  • MS-Windows Vista
  • MS-Windows Server 2003
  • MS-Windows Server 2008

    Application Software:
