BespokePC PC provides a wide range of products and services to upgrade your computer whether it be a Mac or a PC. This allows you to make the most of your existing computer hardware by upgrading various components of your machine. You may need to upgrade your machine for a variety of reasons, more RAM to make programs run a bit faster, a bigger hard drive to fit your ever expanding iTunes collection, faster processor for that new application.
This section is designed to give you an idea of the upgrade products we sell, our fitting services, and to give you an idea of what can and can't be upgraded.
Memory - RAM - Random Access Memory. RAM is by far the easiest and most worth while of upgrades to do. RAM is your computer's short-term memory, which it uses to store the information that you are working on. Adding memory will improve the responsiveness of both your applications and your operating system. There are a great number of different types of memory (DIMM, SODIMM, PC133, DDR, DDR II etc.), some computers will need this installed in pairs others can be upgraded on an ad hoc basis. Please call us for assistance in identifying the correct memory for you.
Hard Drives - The longer that you own a machine, the more files and information you collect. With music files, digital video and photos your digital lifestyle can soon fill up your existing hard drive. Adding an additional hard drive(s) or replacing your existing drive will allow you to store much more data. With some older machines there will be a limit to the size of internal hard drive your computer will be able to support. A large number of PC desktops & Macs will have space to run multiple hard drives and they are relatively inexpensive to add. With laptops you will normally only have spaces for one internal drive, so an upgrade would require replacement of the original hard drive with a larger one - our service includes copying all data from your old hard drive to the new one so you do not lose any of your existing data.
Connectivity - Connectivity is the means by which various devices such as printers, scanners and mice to external storage and cd or DVD writers, connect to your computer. BespokePC supply a wide range of upgrade cards which can increase your computers connectivity.
- USB - USB stands for Universal Serial Bus and has three revisions. USB 1 is used for the connection of printers, scanners and mice, it has a slower connection speed though is ideal for these types of use. USB 2.0 is the second revision of the USB standard and has a much faster connection rate. USB 3.0 is the latest standard and is significantly faster the two older standards whilst remaining backwards compatible, so a USB 2 device will work on USB 3 - and the other way around, albeit at a slow speed.
- SATA and eSATA - SATA (Serial ATA) and eSATA (External Serial ATA) is a connectivity standard designed for hard drives. SATA drives are fast and with large capacity so adding Serial ATA to your older computer can really add to your storage capability. eSATA allows you to connect these drives to your computer externally, perfect for fast back-ups. We have a range of SATA and eSATA solutions available.
- Optical Drives - Internal and External Optical devices - CD writers, DVD writers and the newer Blue Ray drives are available. These can fit either internally to your machine, or externally (see above for connectivity) these devices allow archiving and additional storage, and the ability to write your own CDs, DVDs and Blue Ray disks.
Graphics Cards - The graphics card is the device which your system uses to display the image on your monitor(s). On most desktops these are quite easily replaced with a faster, better card which allows greater resolutions and increased speed in programs such as games and other 3D graphics applications. For laptop users the graphics card is usually built in to the motherboard so cannot be upgraded, although there are exceptions.
Processors - The CPU - This is the “Central Processing Unit” of your computer, in effect the brain of the machine. In some cases these can be upgraded, but are generally more complicated as there are a number of manufacturers and many differing types of connection.
