Upgrading Your Computer

UpgradeIt’s said that the maximum possible processor speed doubles roughly every six months. With that in mind, it’s easy to see how a machine that was top of the line five years ago is lagging so far behind even mediocre machines being built today. Fortunately many components of your system, from memory to graphics cards and even hard drives, can be replaced with newer, faster versions. Upgrading your system periodically will ensure that you can use the latest software for many years.
