Storage:

SATA

Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

Graphics Card:

PCI Express x16 Graphics

External Connector: 15-hole connector

Graphics Card A circuit board fitted to a computer containing the necessary video memory and other electronics to provide a bitmap display. Adaptors vary in the resolution (number of pixels) and number of colours they can display, and in the refresh rate they support. These parameters are also limited by the monitor to which the adaptor is connected.

          I recently upgraded the working memory on my computor. When I logged on to Crucial they were able to reccommend exactly what I needed. They also provided a short instruction video that helped me not be afraid to do it myself. Installation completed with ease and confidence. Thank you so much.

                    A friend suggested this site. It told me what memory I needed, it was a good price, received it in about a week, and installing it was easy. I would have liked to have more of an increase in performance, but at least my spyware can scan and I can still work now.

                      I love the scanning so you know you are getting the right chip and have used it to upgrade 3 of my family computers recently. One of the 3 didn't boot after installing the two new chips, and a call to customer support quickly got me talking to a helpful guy who quickly(in American English) got me do do some troubleshooting actions that determined one of the chips worked fine, and one was defective. [...]within 2 days I had my replacement, which worked perfectly. So even tho the bad chip wasted several hours trying to install it and boot repeatedly, and calling support, driving to a shipper, etc, I'd have to give Crucial high marks for the support.
