If this is your first time buying a desktop PC, you may want to know more about the processor, graphics card, memory and storage to ensure you configure the best desktop PC suited to your computing needs. Below, we have more details on each component so you can decide what to include in your new desktop computer before you buy.
The central processing unit (CPU) is the brains of each desktop pc, completing tasks that are requested by devices, applications and software. Every processor has a number of cores that affects how many tasks can be run simultaneously and clock speed to determine how quickly they are completed. The higher the cores and clock speed you choose, the faster your PC will complete demanding tasks. Our desktop PCs can be configured with Intel or AMD processors, each with unique technologies specific to gaming, graphic design, office work and more.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) is a type of display adapter that processes 3D images with high clarity, colour and effects. Instead of depending on your processor’s integrated graphics, a GPU will allow you to play games at a higher resolution and with higher framerates. With a gaming GPU you can play your favourite games at your desired setting – Or you can opt for a workstation GPU to help with CAD design and rendering.
Random-access memory (RAM) is a physical device within desktop pcs that temporarily stores information from active operating systems, software and documents. This is your computers short term memory that helps to keep your PC running smoothly. You can choose different types of memory from brand such as Corsair that run at different speeds and different sizes. Ensure you choose the right size and speed of desktop PC memory suitable to your needs.
Unlike RAM, the main storage used to save your operating system, software and documents comes in the form of Hard Drives (HDD) and Solid State Drives (SSD). These storage devices securely hold information on your desktop PC to be used and open whenever needed. It’s important you configure the correct amount of HDD and SSD needed within your desktop PC to hold the information you want to store.
