Gamer's Alliance heeft een artikel over upgrading in elkaar geknutseld. De bedoeling van het verhaaltje:
There are a number of ways to save yourself headaches during an upgrade process. Over the 18 years of computer buying and upgrading I've done, I've learned a number of things about this process I'd like to share with you. The "wisdom" in this article applies to building a computer from scratch as well, so if you are going to be building one for yourself, or for friends and family, you definitely want to read this.
Note: This article does not apply to you if you are Bill Gates, Steve Forbes, or an NFL player. This article is about upgrading your computer for a reasonable price and getting maximum value for each dollar you put in. It's better to have a machine that is constantly playable for all games that come out for a reasonable cost, rather than have one that is great for a short while but costs you so much money that you are stuck with the same hardware for the next two years. One other side benefit of this is that, overall, it will leave you with more money to buy games, as well as leaving you with a computer you can play them on. This is kind of a maintenance program for your computer. You probably don't go out and buy a new car every year, so why should you buy a new computer that often? With regular "maintenance," just like your car, your computer can serve you well for quite a long while... without costing you an arm and a leg.
