Hardware Components

We can source many hardware components from Memory, CPU’s, motherboards, cooling to Graphical and Audio Equipment

Speak to us on your specific requirements

Memory – RAM

The biggest benefit of upgrading your PC’s memory is better multi-tasking, especially for those of us using RAM-hogging applications like Photoshop, Outlook, or Firefox 5 minutes after we’ve opened it. Having a lot of memory means that you can quickly switch back and forth between the different applications without Windows writing the process memory out to the pagefile. (The pagefile performs much the same purpose as RAM, but the data is stored on your much slower hard drive.)

Desktop Memory – DDR 2/3/4 RAM

Laptop Memory – DDR 2/3/4 RAM

Server Memory 

ECC, or Error-Correcting Code, is designed to mitigate the problems caused by electrical or magnetic interference that sometimes occur inside the server.

Registered Memory – also sometimes called buffered systems – uses a lower electrical load to maintain stability.

Graphics Cards

Installing a separate graphics card can significantly improve a computer’s performance.  Graphic hungry applications such as CAD, Photoshop and video editing all require fast processing power for smooth operation.  The card can also improve the computing experience by playing video better and freeing up memory.  Mosts cards run on PCI Express slots on the motherboard (PCI-E)

Soundcards

All computers come with basic on-board soundcard which is fine for general audio playback.  Separate Soundcards are essential for any professional audio recording, mixing and playback.  They can hookup to Pro speakers and amp / mixing desks.  Usually connecting via PCI-E

 

Power Supply

The role of a PC power supply unit is to convert the AC electric power that comes from the mains to the DC power that the computer requires. But it can do much more than that. A good quality power supply can make your system more efficient, stable and reliable.  When choosing a PSU the output is very important. This output is listed as watts and should be greater than the combined wattage of all the components in your system plus 40 to 60%.

The servers we provide usually have redundant power supplies built in meaning should one fail then the server can still operate on the backup one.

Fans

Many of the hardworking components in your computer, including graphics cards, processors and RAM, generate waste heat as a side-effect of normal operation.  Cooling fans are essential to many modern system builds as they help regulate the internal temperature either by drawing cool air in from outside a machine, expelling excess warm air or helping to cool air by moving it across a heat sink.
