Upgrade My Machine
Boosting your PC's performance can help you improve productivity and use the latest software with out the lags and system freezes. What can you do to boost your systems performance?
MemoryThe memory inside of a desktop PC is the easiest and most cost effective upgrade that can be made. The more memory that a PC has, the more data it can process without having to use virtual memory. Virtual memory is memory that exceeds the system RAM and is swapped to and from the hard drive in order to keep the system running. Most desktop systems shipped with the memory that was sufficient at the time of purchase, but as computer programs get more complex, they use up more system RAM.

Hard DrivesThe next easiest upgrade for a desktop PC is with the drives used for storage. Hard drive space roughly doubles ever two years and the amount of data that we store is growing just as quickly thanks to digital audio, video and pictures. If a computer is running out of space, it is easy to purchase a new internal hard drive for installation or an external drive. The main thing to be aware of with your PC is whether it uses the older IDE interface or the new SATA if you are going to install the drive inside of the computer.
This is probably the least expensive upgrade that can be done to a computer system. Most DVD burners can be found from around $30 for the latest models.
