Upgrades


Our upgrade services offer an affordable solution to keeping up with advances in computer technology. Having the latest computer software does not always mean having to replace your computer, and it can often be more cost effective to simply upgrade your machine.

We can advise on and install all types of hardware/software to ensure you get the correct and best value upgrades to give you the best performance. So if your computer is struggling to keep up with the latest software or games, need more memory, or you are running out of hard drive space or are looking at upgrading your graphics card, CD/DVD drive then contact us.


General hardware upgrades include

Memory (RAM)
Adding or replacing memory has always been one of the simplest and most cost-effective upgrades to perform on a computer. If your machine is constantly having to use its swap space, performance will be notably degraded. A memory upgrade could be just what your computer needs to make your programmes load and run faster. By doing this, your productivity level on your computer will dramatically increase.


Wireless card
If you have a wireless card in your PC, you can enjoy the freedom of having your computer set up anywhere in your home without the inconvenience of tripping over unsightly cables. Contact us and we can provide you with the best solution for your setup.


Motherboard/CPU
If you have a slow CPU, then you will have a slow computer. Upgrading your CPU (and/or motherboard) is a great, cost-effective way to get a couple more years of life out of your PC.


Video/Graphic card
A video card upgrade is without a doubt the best way to enhance your computer without breaking the bank. Many computers stutter when they try to play films, and the newer games on the market certainly won't run at their full potential.


Hard drive
It's impossible to have too much hard drive space. Images, video, space-hogging programs and music files demand ever more storage. Fortunately, high-capacity upgrades are inexpensive, and we can install one in less than 30 minutes, Replacing a hard drive is almost always an uncomplicated affair, and the actual swap can be done in just a few minutes. If you want us to reproduce your old data and programs exactly the way you had them before, this requires a little more time. If you want a clean Windows installation, we can do that also.


Optical drive

Would you like to upgrade from an older CD-ROM drive to a DVD burner, or possibly even to a high-def (Blu Ray) drive? We can source and fit a new optical drive. This is probably the least expensive upgrade that can be done to a computer system and the extra speed and functionality make these a great upgrade for any computer that has an older CD burner or plain CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Now that the format war between HD and Blu-ray is over, the option for getting a high definition DVD is now better. Prices are higher than DVD but they have come down quite a bit.


If the overall cost of upgraded parts is more than 50% of the cost of a newer and better system, it is generally advisable to just purchase a new computer system instead of upgrading.
