How to Purchase a Desktop Computer

Are you looking for a desktop computer that can handle graphics-heavy games or simply need a desktop for web surfing, Nerds Shop has a wide range of Windows PCs that are perfect for your requirement. We can help you discover which specifications are important in finding the desktop computer that will meet your needs

What you will use your desktop for?
Desktop computers come in different makes and models from basic computing to the everyday performer and digital workhorse to graphics-intensive gaming, and more. Some models are hybrid, providing a range of connectivity options and the horsepower to keep you working and playing without any glitches. You can access and buy from all-in-one desktops available on Nerds Shop, one of the leading online electronics store. HP ENVY Curved All-in-One, Acer Aspire Z3 All-In-One Desk, Dell XPS 27 Desktop-7760 are powerful all-in-one desktops, offering great performance. They have the capability required by creative professionals in a stylish and space-saving package.

Understand storage drive, graphics card, & RAM
Before you decide on specifications, it’s better to get a basic understanding of the desktop’s anatomy. The processor (CPU) is the brain of a desktop that ranges from dual cores for everyday work to six or more cores that help handle the heavy workload with ease. When you open apps, RAM (random access memory) allows the desktop to access and interact with them, so the amount of memory determines how many apps can be run simultaneously. The hard drive, either in solid-state drive (SSD) or hard disk drive (HDD) format, stores your multimedia and files. Working in tandem with RAM is an integrated graphics card for playing standard definition video or media streaming. Dedicated video cards make the desktop visually enabled to run tasks like video editing. You can visit Nerds Shop, one of the top electronic stores in Pennsylvania to see premium brands and popular models like Lenovo IdeaCentre, Acer Aspire, Dell Alienware, and more.

Decide the desktop size
As mentioned, all-in-one desktops are great in space-saving and high performance. They usually have a large monitor housing 4GB RAM and a dual-core processor. There are plenty of Windows options available in all-in-one desktops. If you need something eco-friendly having the ability to perform basic tasks, mini PCs are fit choice like ASUS MiniPC Desktop, HP EliteDesk 705 G5 Desktop, ASUS VivoMiniPC Desktop, and more. Mini PCs feature energy-efficient Intel CPUs, integrated graphics and miniaturized components that sit within an ultra-compact case you can set up virtually anywhere. While the conventional desktop is a tower, a versatile machine that can do anything (depending on the specs) while offering easy access for upgrading components.

Operating systems 
Desktop computers run on operating systems to handle complex tasks, interact with users and keep up with system changes. The most common OS is Microsoft Windows. Windows OS based gaming desktops are quite popular among young gamers and they have choices in gaming desktops like Acer Predator Orion 9000, Alienware Aurora R6, ASUS Strix, and more to buy and play the next level. Visit Nerds Shop, a leading online store in the USA to check on various popular desktop models.
