Re: PC Upgrading Basics

That is really a great couple of references for people. Thanks for sharing.

 

People can often save a bit of money by doing some simple upgrade on their computer and really extend the life of their system.

 

I had a computer at one time I used for nearly 6 years of gaming simply because I could add on a larger disk drive, a faster graphics card and more memory. 

 

And Best Buy carries all the essential pieces to get this done. Though, if your uncomfortable doing the upgrade I would fully recommend getting Geek Squad involved.  They  do a quick and efficient service.

Re: PC Upgrading Basics

Referencing to the specs and researching your specific products are very important. Also knowing your tower size and dimensions can be quite useful.

What an excellent group of FAQs for those wanting to upgrade.

Re: PC Upgrading Basics

If you are new to PC upgrading Basics and you want to upgrade your PC then you need to keep some things in your mind:

 

Motherboard: If you are new to this then don't try by youself just go to any shop to fix motherboard.

 

CPU: CPU is brain of computer I would not advise you to upgrade your CPU yourself.

 

PSU: Here yopu can try with your self. First of all you should research the specifications of the other components in your system, most importantly the video card and CPU. You also want to make sure you get the proper connectors for your system.

Re: PC Upgrading Basics

Links on how too would be awesome but it would open Best Buy up to liability issues.  Becauase people will make mistakes and then they could claim they did exactly as Best Buy said.
