The Essential Consumer Buying Guide

March 23, 2009 10:21pm CST
By Richard Fisco and John R. Delaney Anyone watching the PC industry knows one thing for sure-the increases in speed and performance never stop. That PC you bought just two years ago is being outperformed by today's top-of-the-line systems by twofold on typical applications and by more than tenfold on 3D gaming. But must you constantly sink money into new technology just because advancements occur so quickly? Not necessarily. Processing power and speed,memory,grahics capabilities,and storage capacity are just a few of the criteria to consider; knowing exacty what you need a PC to do is the key to making the right choice.

I don't have money so I never even think about top of the line. I am more of the middle of the line kind of guy and if I had money for the leading edge system now I would just wait a couple of months for the prices to come tumbling down. They always do, come tumbling down. Cheers!!
