Today PC is considered as the one of the most essential components of our daily life. We can’t imagine a single minute without the presence of a PC. From office to our home, everywhere it has a strong presence.
But buying the right PC is not so easy as it sounds. One of the easier processes is buying a Branded PC. There are big names in this field. And they come with lucrative offers to stay ahead in the competitive market. But the buyer always has a dilemma. Which one is the best and cost effective? If one branded PC has one advantage, the other has one more advantage, so the best possible way is to build your own PC with all the advantages that you require. Knowledgeable persons, however, prefer buying an assembled PC, as it is cheaper in price and can be custom built.
Here are few tips for buying an assembled PC:
§ Make a list of hardware that you require. This can be done by consulting with someone who has a solid knowledge.
§ Find out a shop that has market goodwill.
§ Ensure that all hardware parts have warranty. Some parts like hard disks nowadays come with five years warranty. So it is recommended to check carefully before installing the hardware in the PC.
§ Today most motherboards have on board graphic cards. But if you are a multimedia professional, you can fit an additional graphic card (AGP card).
§ The cabinet of the PC is an essential part. Because all main parts are to be stored there. Nowadays some very good ATX cabinets with powerful SMPS (Power supply), 3 fans and front USB ports can be found at cheap prices. 3-fan cabinet keeps the cabinet cool. Front USB ports are for handy use of external drives like flash drives.
§ Monitors are available in different models, category and screen sizes. Some monitors are called LCD monitors. These are absolutely thin and lightweight. Merely 2inch in depth and the screen is flat and square. Normal monitors also come with flat screens. It is up to the buyer to decide on the one he/she can afford.
§ If one wants to watch TV then a TV tuner can be added to the PC.
§ Your PC can be a good sound system with some speakers. Speakers with surround effect cost a little higher but really sound good. There are many desktop speakers available in the market with a vast range of prices and features.
§ The CD drives are no more called CD-drives. These are now combo drives. In a combo drive you can play DVD, ACD, MP3, CD’s and can write your own CD’s. Conventional CD drives and CD writers are also available.
§ The newest mouse type is the optical mouse. In this mouse there is no roller ball attached. A laser ray is used to move the pointer.
§ If you need to take printouts on a regular basis then go for a printer. The latest category of printer is called all in one. In this printer you can take printouts, can scan and also photocopy.
Though the price of this machine is little on the higher side but it really is a utility product.
After all these steps your PC is ready to use. An annual maintenance is good for your PC.
