Perhaps you want to back up all you digital photographs to CD but
you don't have a CD re-writer or you want to play DVD movies on your
system but don't have a DVD player.
There comes a time when you realize that your PC is not up the job
anymore or you need a piece of hardware you just don't have.
Many system are running with too little memory and too small hard
disk to cope with today's operating systems and applications. Upgrading
these two components of a system will improve the performance of most
systems far more than upgrading the processor.
However If you are doing a lot of intense processing such as running
large complex spreadsheets upgrading the processor may be a sensible
option. If you are going to upgrade both memory and processor it is
worth considering a new motherboard as this will all most certainly
support faster memory and processors than your existing one. Beware
that many newer motherboards are not compatible with older PC cases
so you may need a new case! At this point you might think it no longer
makes sense to continue trying to upgrade your old PC you might as
well go for a comlete new system. See Systems for details of our new
