Strategy for Hardware Upgrade

1. Types of Connections

The first question that you’ll need to focus on is the type of connection your system supports, including the monitor and video output. Sometimes, a video card or motherboard specifications might deny your monitor selection, simply by stating or showing an error related to unsupported computer parts. The two most common connection types for monitors are:

• DVI connectors: These are used as a digital output for PC monitors, and it supports all the modern video cards including DVI video cards and HDMI cards.

• VGA connectors: VGA connectors are generally paired up with an older PC that might not even install a video card or support DVI standards.

2. Screen Size

There is no standard phenomenon behind selecting an ideal screen size as it entirely depends on the user’s preference and personal choice. Cost of the PC monitor also plays a vital role in deciding the screen size.

Following are some of the guidelines you should check before buying a monitor:

• Larger monitors are better for graphics related purposes like watching or editing video, playing graphics intensive video games or giving final touch to your digital photographs

• If you’re looking for a completely productive setup, then use normal-sized multiple displays to finish up numerous tasks within stipulated time-period

• If you don’t use the PC regularly, then you may not need a large display

3. Native Resolution

Modern LCD monitors support pixels technology to provide amazing video and picture quality to its users. Analog CRT monitors can easily use lots of different resolutions without losing the exact quality of an image or video. LCDs employ pixels at fixed points, and this arrangement of pixels combines to make the native resolution of the display.

Consider the following factors to select an ideal computer upgrade:

• Always select a monitor with a high native or recommended resolution

• Ensure that your selected computer components deliver the best possible video quality

• Farsighted users may prefer PC monitors with smaller native resolutions to read small text easily.

4. Brightness and Contrast Ratio

Monitor brightness and contrast ratio can impact the actual functioning of major PC parts and is usually not something that interests a user. Computer screens offering a vast difference between brightest white and the darkest dark settings can be highly dangerous for naked eyes. So keep the following parameters in mind while selecting optimal brightness and contrast ratio of your hardware upgrade for PC monitors:

• Grab a monitor that rates greater than 200 cd/m2 on brightness

• Brighter monitors allow better display of color and better contrast ratios that are ideal for graphics professionals, video editors, and other professionals

• Always avail a device having contrast ratios higher than 350:1 and you can easily find PC monitors at reasonable prices with 1000:1 contrast ratio

• Try to search for monitors supporting Dynamic Contrast Ratios or Advanced Contrast Ratios to enjoy optimal video experience

5. Colors Display

Usually, all computer monitors and displays are capable of producing a full array of 16.7 million colors (24 bit), which is possible by using the entire shades of an RGB colorspace. Some older VGA monitors may not display all of them and only work in color modes having density lower than 24 bit. Old VGA monitors aren’t in style now so replace them with the new DVI monitors that possess all the capabilities to support 24 bit color schemes.

Need Fiber Optic Networks

A fiber termination kit is very handy for fiber optic termination as well as for splicing and testing purposes. These kits are essential parts of any fiber optic expert since it helps make their job much easier.

You want to make sure that you get a kit with all the right instruments. You will be needing electrical tape, kelvar scissors, a set of screwdrivers, tweezers and pliers. That’s not all, you might also need safety glasses since you do not want to damage your eyes It is always better to come well prepared in advance to prevent any accidents.

Another handy thing that comes in a good fiber termination kits is a black marker for creating precise marks, this prevents mistakes. Also, an emergency lamp is also something to keep by your side.

There are a few more tools that come in such a kit but we just mentioned the main ones. All of these tools come in a hard plastic tool case that is easy to carry around and durable. This way, you will not worry about dropping it during work.

A fiber optic tester

In order to test fiber optic networks, you will need to have a good quality tester. These equipments come in a variety of models. These testers are for checking the length, fiber loss, locating events on the cables and other characteristic of the fiber.

An important feature of a good fiber optic tester is a screen whose results are visible even outdoors. This type of screen makes reading the results convenient. The tester also needs to be durable and moisture-proof so that it can function even in wet weather.

Computer Case Cooling

The first tip you should take into consideration when it comes to computer case cooling is to ensure you buy a fan filter assembly that is bigger than required. Ideally buying a larger fan and allowing it to run at a slower speed will provide you with the same ventilation as a smaller fan running at optimum speed. The main benefit to choosing a larger fan over a smaller fan to ventilate the same area is it will be considerably quieter.

Always use a fan filter. Taking advantage of a fan filter assembly for your computer case can save you headaches in the long run. In addition to reducing the risk of a child in the home injuring themselves by sticking a finger in the fast moving fan, the fan filter also reduces any dust and dirt getting inside the computer. Computer components work best when they are clean and cool, which is what these products provide, ensuring you always have a great performing machine you can rely on day and night.

It is imperative when you install your fan filter assembly that you mount it correctly. Even if you think you know what you are doing, take the time to follow the instructions to the letter. Correct mounting reduces the risk of noise. As you know there is nothing worse than trying to work with a computer droning in the back ground.

When you look at your computer case, plan where you want to put your fans. Most cases come with areas ready to take on new fans, some you have to plan the design yourself. Ensure you have at least one in the front and back, maybe one on the side, depending on the layout inside the case and where all your components are located. You will need to ensure that air is drawn into the case near your graphics card and hard drives, which can heat up quickly. The air should then be drawn out on the other side, pushing any excess hot air out of the case. This will ensure that everything is kept cool at all times, enabling your computer to really work at its best without fail.

When it comes to buying fan filter assembly components you don’t need to break the bank. In fact these are affordable items that come in a variety of different brands and sizes. You can measure the space you have available to identify the best option based on your particular needs.

Don’t fall into the trap of buying the cheapest option on the market. You can find that some companies will offer the same or similar fan filter assembly for a fraction of the cost. As with any product you buy, you want to focus on quality. A high quality fan filter assembly is going to last longer and provide you with all the benefits you need to have a great working computer for years to come.

Renew Old Computer

Steroids for CPU

While some computers don’t have the option to upgrade their processor unit and graphics card, you can always work around tweaking its processor.

Overclock it.

If you are adventurous enough, you can try overclocking your processor. It’s one of the best way to squeeze out more performance without breaking the bank.

Monthly Clean Up

Before you jump to conclusion, you may want to troubleshoot your computer and make sure the slowness is not caused by malware – viruses, worms, trojan horses spyware or adware.

Do a full computer scan with your antivirus software like AVG, Symantec or McAfee. Also, you can clean up temporary files, update windows, and defrag your hard disk.

If all else fails, don’t despair, you can try to reinstall your operating system from scratch.

Speed up Your Applications

Even when it sounds weird to be true, the truth is that some good programs are not optimized to run at their peak performance.

For example, if your web browser loads slowly, it could be due to its history size, installed extensions, or plugins.

The Older Versions

If your hardware doesn’t support the latest version of a particular application, like Photoshop CS5, use an older version instead. While running older software isn’t always the best idea, if it can still get the job done, you will get lesser frustration and time wastage.

Deal with Your External Components

Besides their superior performance, brand new computers offer the fresh feeling of owning it, like a brand new car. New mouse, keyboard and speakers. These are the items which you can replace easily, without breaking much of a sweat. Sometimes all you need to do is to just buy new external parts.
