Behold the SSD, or solid state drive. Just like a flash drive,lightning quick data access. This in now the most effective way of tuning up your pc. Traditionally, Adding RAM has always been one of the most cost effective ways to speed up a PC, and it still is.
Today, I’m going to tell you about an equally amazing upgrade that costs a little more, but will definitely speed up your computer and move it right into the fast lane!
Solid State Drives (SSDs)
SSD are amazing devices that work exactly like hard drives, only a LOT faster. Instead of spinning platters and read/write heads, SSDs use non-volatile memory chips to store your computer’s operating system, programs and data files.
Since these memory chips have no moving parts and work at incredible speeds, they allow data to be written to and read from an SSD at speeds that make even the fastest traditional hard drives seem to be moving at a sloth’s pace.
Virtually all PCs that work with either SATA 2 or SATA 3 hard drives will also work with an SSD, and truth-be-told, there are relatively few computers still in use that don’t support one of these standards.
To find out if your computer supports either SATA 2 or SATA 3, type the brand and model number of your PC along with the word “specs” into Google and you’ll be presented with a list of websites that will list the hardware specifications of your system. If you see SATA 2 or SATA 3 listed you’re good to go.
If you just don’t feel comfortable doing this upgrade yourself, you can always take your PC to your local computer shop and have them do it for you. The techs there will know all the steps required for installing your new SSD and transferring all of your files over without losing any data.
Bottom line: Replacing your computer’s hard drive with a super-fast SSD is one of the most effective upgrades you can make for making it run faster!
