3 Quick Hardware Upgrades to Improve Computer Performance, Staten Island, New York

Whether you’re using it for personal use or work, a slow PC can be frustrating. If you’re not ready to invest in an entirely new computer but still need to boost your system’s performance, hardware upgrades are an attractive solution. As Staten Island, NY’s PC repair experts, the team from Alpha Laser Richmond Corp. weighs in with a few recommendations.

PC Repair Experts Share 3 Hardware Upgrades to Boost Speed

1. Purchase a New Hard Drive

Hard drives are responsible for holding your digital content. If you’ve had your computer for a few years, it’s possible your original hard drive is becoming bogged down with documents, pictures, videos, and programs. Upgrading to a solid-state drive (SSD) with multiple terabytes will deliver the best results regarding lightning-fast performance and storage capacity.

2. Increase RAM

Computers use RAM (short for random access memory) to load data, so if you’ve seen a decline in performance when using multiple programs, this component could be to blame. Modern desktop PCs should have at least 8 GB of RAM, but upgrading to 16 GB can make a considerable improvement in speed and functionality.

3. Invest in a Better Graphics Card

In older computers, upgrading to a newer model could improve performance. But before calling a PC repair shop, make sure the graphics card is compatible with your PC’s motherboard. Even after a few short years, the developments in new graphics card begin to outpace older models of computers.

While each of these upgrades can make noticeable differences in processing speed, they’re not always easy to complete on your own. In fact, DIY upgrades could even compromise your PC’s functionality if you’re unfamiliar with how to do them.
