Upgrades

Computer running slow? A simple tune-up may resolve your speed-related issues, but a hardware upgrade is always useful. If you feel that a new computer is the way to go, we build custom desktops.

Operating System (OS)

Running an old version of Windows or macOS? You may be missing out on important security updates. Windows 7’s end of life is on January 14th, 2020, which means no more security updates, leaving yourself, and others, vulnerable to attacks. macOS also updates quite frequently, adding additional functionality and patching exploits long before they may affect the majority. Don’t wait — let us upgrade you to Windows 10 or the latest macOS for a $90 flat fee.

Solid State Drive (SSD)

The most significant upgrade to increase performance is an upgrade from an old-fashioned hard drive (HDD) to a solid state drive (SSD). Unlike the traditional platters spinning around to store your data, an SSD has no moving parts, allowing instant access of the data. To the user, this means much less time waiting for the computer to start up, load web content, access files, or anything else you use your computer for. We’ll even perform the data transfer for you, so your programs and files are exactly where you left them.

RAM (Memory)

Random Access Memory (RAM) is the temporary storage that contains the information about your open applications and the data within them. The ideal amount of RAM is 8GB for basic usage, but to those who multitask a lot, or are gaming, more RAM is essential.

Graphics Card (GPU)

If your desktop came with an adequate graphics processing unit (GPU), but won’t perform well with the most popular game titles, a GPU upgrade will help the most. We’ll be more than happy to upgrade your GPU and get you the best card for the best value, tailored to your favorite games. A power supply upgrade may be required in the process, but we’ll be sure to help maintain the compatibility and recommend the best steps.
