    This is the "brain" of the computer. Also called the Central Processing Unit, or CPU, this component resides on the mainboard and is basically a super-fast calculator.

    CPUs today also can have more than one physical core (brain) joined together into one piece, kind of like a multiple lane highway instead of a single lane road. More cores allow for more simultaneous calculations and translate into a faster computing experience for the user.

  • Perfect for business and productivity applications.

    The video card is the component that is responsible for displaying all the millions of pixels on your screen.

    The video card receives information from the CPU or from memory and then translates it into a signal that your screen can understand so that an image can be displayed on the screen.

    More advanced video cards also are responsible for calculating complex 3D images, which for example makes your gaming environments extremely realistic.

    The hard drive or hard disc drive is the component that stores your information even when the power is off.

    It works a lot like a juke box actually. A program requests data from the hard drive, the OS sends that request and the known location of the data to the hard drive, and the hard drive then goes to that location and reads the information back to the computer.

    The data on a hard drive is retained even when the power is off.

    Let's build your new rig

    Looks complicated? It's actually pretty easy. Let's get started

    Choose your initial setup

      The chassis is the frame which holds all the components in place. Larger chassis generally can accommodate more components and thus allow for more upgrades.

      The chassis is the frame which holds all the components in place. Larger chassis generally can accommodate more components and thus allow for more upgrades.

      Why Upgrade?

      Enthusiasts often like to have lots of extra room to add more gear, whereas others may simply want a smaller chassis that looks great and runs very quietly.

      More power for you...

      The power supply distributes power to each computer component.

      Learn more

      The desktop computer power supply changes alternating current from a wall socket to low-voltage direct current to operate the processor and peripheral devices. Several direct-current voltages are required, and they must be regulated with some accuracy to provide stable operation of the computer.

      Computer power supplies may have short circuit protection, overpower (overload) protection, overvoltage protection, undervoltage protection, overcurrent protection, and over temperature protection.

      Why Upgrade?

      After upgrades are made to a PC or new components are added, your power supply may not provide enough wattage to power all the components in your computer.

      Pick your PC's brain...

      The processor determines the speed of your system.

      Why Upgrade?

      If you are using processor intensive applications, such as video editing software, 3D rendering, gaming, and image editing, a powerful, multicore processor is a must.

      Select your Operating System...

      The operating system, or OS, is the base level of software or foundation which is responsible for all the fundamental operations of the computer.

      Learn more

      The operating system, or OS, is the base level of software or foundation which is responsible for all the fundamental operations of the computer. The OS is responsible for keeping track of all the hardware components and peripherals and allows users to take advantage of the features of those components. All other programs you install reside on top of the OS and are given access to the resources controlled by the OS.

      Why Upgrade?

      Operating systems today come in various versions that offer users different functionality depending on the version. For example, if you wish to connect to a corporate network or domain you may wish to select a version that has that capability. Other features may be enhanced encryption or multimedia enhancements.

      How much memory...

      Memory is the area where the computer temporarily holds data while it waits to be processed by CPU, and is when the CPU is done with its calculations it returns the results back to memory and ultimately to your screen.

      Learn more

      Memory is also called RAM or DRAM, which stands for Dynamic Random Access Memory. Basically DRAM means that it holds data as long as power is on. If you turn off the power, the data in RAM is gone. Anything needed after the power is off typically gets stored on the hard drive.

      You could think of RAM like a large and extremely fast chalkboard, but one that only works while the lights are on.

      Why Upgrade?

      Having lots of system memory allows you to quickly run more applications, simultaneously. Because your computer accesses data faster from memory than it does from the hard drive, memory is essential to the speed of the applications you run, and the more memory you have, the faster the application data can be manipulated, stored and recalled.

      How much storage do you need...

      The hard drive determines the amount of storage on your system.

      The optical drive allows you to read and burn CD/DVDs.

      Learn more

      This is another type of storage that is also permanent or semi-permanent. The benefit is that optical storage is very portable, i.e. it is easy to copy your files to a CD or DVD and take them with your or store them safely.

      Most programs you purchase in a store will come on an optical media, and your music CD�s and movie DVD�s would also be considered optical media.

      Optical media is a generally a digital only media that is read by a laser beam contained in the optical drive. Optical media is not susceptible to interference from magnetic interference.

      Why Upgrade?

      Computers have been with us for a number of years now and started out without any form of optical drive, then moved on to a CD-ROM drive, then DVD-ROM drive and now the latest models boast Blu-ray and HD capability. Maybe you want to be able to burn DVDs and CDs as well.
