Most newer computers, already have what it takes to make a decent system. However, if you have an older computer or opted for a cheap computer up front, a few minor upgrades might make the difference between a fast older computer and forking out some money for a brand new one.
Typical Hardware Upgrades & Replacements
- Hard Drive / SSD Drive
- Video Card
- Power Supply
Obviously there are a lot of other components that can be upgraded, however adding memory and a solid state drive can produce the biggest performance increase. It really comes down to deciding if you want to spend $300 on a few minor upgrades or put that money towards another computer.
