The latest technology is always making the desktop market landscape dynamic. There are times that the parts you bought last year will be available which can be superior revision. The processor speed has been observed to grow consistent to the Moore’s law. We now have 14 nanometer consumer processor technology. The components run powerful but also energy efficient. The cut of thermal dissipation improves the life of the electronics, and hence better life span under advised operating environment. Cost is one of the biggest consideration, and newer parts can be price-tagged with a premium. Thanks to competition, we get the best value for our money per performance and quality.

Video cards are a challenge to PC builders and gamers. Games with increasing complexity and higher resolution graphics are written, and the demand for powerful chips and cards makes the video card susceptible to quick depreciation. The excitement brought by graphical user interface paved the way for a graphics hungry application. It is an appetite that grow every year, with demand for higher resolution display to show vivid and clear computer graphic render. Games may utilise all the cores and threads of the processor, but the video card takes considerable burden of pumping the pixels to a high resolution screen.

The lucky buyer will have a system that meets their needs, for years to come. Desktop computers that are assembled are not that much hard to maintain, compared to used laptops. The assembled components can be easily replaced one by one. It only depends on the availability of the component during a replacement, but since the parts are standardised, the interface will remain much the same across brands.

New computers are always eye catching and makes the desktop users excited. Computers are investment, and the need should dictate the specification of the build.
