Should You Replace or Upgrade Your Computer?
It is more difficult to install new programs/system updates on older computers. It takes longer to launch already installed programs, and they probably have little storage space. In that case, it’s time to upgrade or replace your computer.
A computer upgrade will allow you to get better speed and more storage space for only a fraction of the price of a new computer, but there is no point in changing the components of an older system if it will not offer the desired performances.
For a standard computer, you can upgrade virtually any component. The choice of which ones you are going to upgrade depends primarily on the type of performance gain you want. In addition, some components are easier to upgrade than others. Fortunately, the simplest parts to change are usually the ones that allow you to benefit from significant performance gains.

Buy a New Computer
If your current computer is more than 5-7 years 0ld, you may need to consider buying a new one. In addition, if the price of the components are comparatively higher than a new computer, so purchasing a new one might be the most cost effective route.
A new machine might be more expensive than upgrading components, but it will allow you to get everything you need at once. Make sure to choose a computer that will last several years and that you can upgrade.

Hardware That Affect the Speed of Your Computer
RAM allows your computer to perform many everyday tasks, such as loading applications, browsing the Internet, editing a spreadsheet, or playing the latest video games. The memory also allows you to quickly switch programs, while remembering where you left off after switching to another program.
When you turn on your computer and open a spreadsheet to edit it, but you read your emails before, you use memory in several different ways. The memory is used to load and launch applications, such as your spreadsheet software; to respond to commands, such as changes you make in a spreadsheet; or to switch programs, when you reduce the spreadsheet to see your emails, for example. Memory is almost always in use by your computer.
If your system is slow or down, a memory upgrade could be the easiest and most cost-effective way to improve performance. If you are frustrated by the lack of responsiveness of your computer, the memory (RAM) is surely at fault.
Hard Disk – A technology tool that stores the operating system, applications, and data files that your computer needs to function normally
- Hard Drives are just one type of storage drive
- Solid State Drives (SSDs) – Storage drives that perform the same functions as hard drives but use a different technology. This technology is similar to that used for USB sticks. It requires less energy and generates less heat.
- SSDs do not contain any moving parts and, therefore, are more resistant, especially in laptops.
The CD/DVD Player/Writer:
The reader or writer is screwed to the case and slid into an open slot on the front of the PC, allowing for the opening of the drawer that will receive the optical disc – CD (Compact Disc) or DVD (Digital Versatile Disc)
It is connected to the motherboard by a flat cable (ribbon) IDE or SATA.
The processor is one of the essential parts in a computer, seriously impacting its performance. Having a strategically central position in the computer, the processor processes all the instructions and executes the various programs. The more powerful it is, the more fluid the use will be and the more it will be possible to “push” the PC with particularly sophisticated software or extremely demanding video games.
Of course, powerful processors are more expensive and are not necessary for those who just surf the web or use their computer for school or office work.
For all video game enthusiasts or professionals working in video or photographic creation, you need an excellent graphics card in the computer. This is one of the most important components. As new models constantly come out, they can become obsolete, even with a recent computer.
Several elements will help you select your graphics card: frequency, memory and power consumption.
