Cyro Calculatoare



The computer case would be the first visible element... If we buy the computer system, as such, this element is only related to the appearance. Aesthetics, lights, functionality in size and expression of this dimension, etc... Insignificant details...

But, if we build our computer, it's all about the appearance, just the eyes?!? It is quite clear that this case must provide the necessary space for the "presence" of all that we want, with reference to the computer components that will result, in performance, hardware malleability, etc.

Then, especially importantly, in this case, will "include" the power supply. The basic benchmark to this would be, first of all, its power, expressed in watts (450W, 600W, etc.). If we are going to have a low power supply, it is obvious that we will not be able to sustain too many "internal" elements in operation, as there is no power to power all this.

In addition, a power supply without all the modern power ports can block your purchase of a better-performing network card, for example. And that's not necessarily due to the lack of extra power, but simply because there is not a simple "requested" power plug, even if standard, by that video card (or something else)...

Then, on the motherboard, in our times, there are components called "on board", that is, what is implemented directly in the motherboard we purchase. For those who aim to "be cheap", they can have an audio processor, video, network card, etc. very high performance in these "on board" inclusions...

Let's also remember, for those who are good at it, how important is the number of existing ports, from the PCI ones, even if they are "express", ending with the usual USB?!?

So, here's how many benchmarks can only be perceived when approaching the motherboard... But even here, you get to "what do you want to do" with that computing system.

But let's leave the motherboard and move on to the following points, useful also to those who simply buy a calculation system.

When you buy, for example from the big/ legacy distributors that we find in "supermarkets", you can only flirt based on the existing offer. This is the merchandise, that's what you buy... No talk about some configuration corrections or other similar operations... Here it's all about correctly identifying the configuration of that calculation system, not forgetting about "what you want to do"...

The first element to consider is the processor, CPU, or, completely, the Central Processing Unit.

At the moment, in the market, you will find the I3, I5, I7, I9 processors made by Intel, where the "I" comes from Intel, with their approximate R3, R5, R7 comparabilities made by AMD, where the "R" comes from Ryzen (the Intel range is much wider, for example, it is the "H" range that comes from Horizon and others).

At first glance, it's quite simple... You have to purchase an "I" or "H" with the highest possible number, symbolizing a kind of "higher" generation... But also, a higher price, the increase in the number generation being reflected in the decrease your account.

And, beware, this "bigger" is also a matter of the generation of that processor. For example, the newcomer Windows 11 requires, mandatory processor from a certain generation I5, for example, "up"... The lower generations will deprive you of the opportunity to use a minimal operating system of the current time...

But enough for today! We continue tomorrow with the processor... and what will follow...
