You might think that buying a new computer is the best way to increase your speed when you experience slow downs with your existing system. However, you might be surprised to learn that a new computer may not always be the most cost effective or beneficial option for increasing speeds or performance. Let’s explore 3 ways you can boost the performance of your existing computers, coming up next…

Since computers have become obsolete so quickly in the past, you may be tempted to ditch your older equipment. That definitely is an option, but system upgrades are often an inexpensive alternative to buying new computers. Here are three easy upgrades that can extend a computer’s life, increase its speed, and provide huge bang for the buck.

1. Add Memory - Today’s operating systems and applications require huge amounts of memory causing system slowness as memory is used up. Ask your IT professional about maxing out the RAM on your systems, to provide a significant and noticeable performance boost to your system.

2. Replace The Hard Drive with a Solid State Drive - An SSD or solid-state drive is a hard drive with no moving parts and increased speed. The SSD will make your systems boot faster and your applications will also show a noticeable improvement.

3. Add A New Graphics Card – Adding a new graphics card can increase overall system speed and some cards even provide support for multiple monitors, which can increase productivity.

With even one of these upgrades, you’ll notice the difference when you start your machine. These are highly recommended upgrades that can dramatically increase the life of your machine. Our team can help you with evaluating your system to see if these upgrades are necessary and can provide you with help in speeding up your computers and networks.
