Options for your PC

When you are looking for the best PC for you, you’ll have lots of options to choose from. When selecting your configuration, you’ll have the ability to select different options for your system’s main components and other add-ons.

The central processing unit, or CPU, is the brain that drives your PC. The latest generation of CPUs delivers faster performance, as do processors with more cores and higher clock speeds. If you’re planning to use your PC for editing videos or playing games, you’ll want to invest in a faster processor.

Graphics cards
Dedicated graphics cards have their own CPU and RAM systems. They bring video games to life and let you render video and photos in rich detail.

RAM, or random-access memory, improves performance by allowing the CPU to access data quickly. 8 GB of RAM is adequate for most applications. In comparison, 16 GB is preferred for processing-intensive applications and gaming.

Disc drives store the files and data your PC needs for smooth operation. Hard disk drives (HDDs) are less expensive and hold more data, while solid-state drives (SSDs) offer faster performance.

High-resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) displays deliver vivid, immersive viewing experiences. Touchscreen laptops offer more intuitive ways to interact with your device. Widescreen displays provide more real estate for viewing documents and web pages side-by-side. And screens with fast refresh rates give gamers a competitive edge.

In addition to selecting the physical attributes of your computer, you can also choose from an array of add-ons like warranties and software to further customize your order. Whether you’re a designer or just need extra system security, you can get everything you need as you finalize your PC configuration
