Desktop Computers FAQ

The innovation that we have seen in the components of laptops in recent years has closed the range of difference that they used to have with desktop computers, however, desktops are still a better option for tasks that are more specifics. So, if you are looking for a computer that you can completely assemble to your liking, something that you can do both in software and hardware your best option will be a Desktop computer, although on the other hand laptops have an incredible and unmatched feature such as their portability and practicality. Here we must choose according to our needs.

To choose a good processor we must know how to identify them, for example in the latest Ryzen 50 processors the first number indicates the generation, and the second number indicates where the processor is in that generation. So even though the 5600X and 5800X are from the same generation, the 5800X offers higher performance.

As for the cores, we must remember that more of these translates into higher quality, for example a dual core will be perfect for basic tasks, and four cores for more complex ones. About the MHz and GHz that are the clock speed, the higher, the faster your processor will work.

Knowing this, it will be much easier to choose and make a good decision.

In this case, as in almost all, the decisive factor to make the correct purchase will depend 100% on the use that we will give to the computer. Integrated and dedicated cards differ more in their performance and quality, and consequently, their cost. The dedicated ones will be the perfect ones to carry out games, tasks or professional jobs that require a higher demand, while the integrated cards will do a good job in cases where perfect graphics and professional quality are not required.

Put on the table the number of tasks you perform on your computer, how complex they are and based on this you can decide how much RAM to choose. Fewer tasks, less RAM you will require, for more tasks and more complexity, you will need to have a good amount of RAM, so that your computer is not as slow as a 100 year old turtle. For desktop computers, the recommended minimum for good performance is 16GB of RAM, and 32GB of RAM for more complex tasks.

For essentials software (like Adobe cloud and Microsoft office), you’ll be okay with 256GB since most of the software are integrated with cloud services. If your plans are to play some AAA Games or having a lot of information, 512GB to 1TB will work well, which is usually the maximum in traditional hard drives. In case you need more, you could also opt for a cloud or an external hard drive.
