When is it time to give up on your old PC and move on to something new..–PC Pitstop.
Is It Finally Time to Upgrade?
by Richard Pedersen for Daves Computer Tips
There comes a time in the life of old computers that a decision needs to be made. “When do I stop spending money on this thing and get a new one instead?”
It can be a confusing choice and, like pets, we tend to get attached to them and their many quirks that we have come to understand so well.
How about a brand spanking new Solid State Drive (SSD)? People say that’s a great bang for the buck. Or what about a memory upgrade? More RAM is a better thing, right?
Random Access Memory (RAM) and an SSD are both cost-effective choices where system upgrades are concerned, but there are also other considerations that may negate those purchase-options. A new computer might be the better choice when you look at the whole picture.
If you don’t mind anthropomorphizing your computer for a minute, then the motherboard could possibly be called the skeleton. It can only carry so much weight, as it were, and therefore limits your decisions.
