PC Accessories Buying Guide

Some desktop PC systems may ship without any inputs peripherals and that leaves the onus of shopping around for devices like mice and keyboards to the end-users. In some cases, the bundled stock input devices may not be to your liking; hence, swopping them out with purchases of one's choice is the next course of action.

PC ACCESSORIES TODAY

With the advent of touch-centric GUI brought forth to the desktop by Windows 8 OS, there have been a slew of trackpads that enable users to execute gestures for interaction within Windows 8. Such gestures can be perform without having the user lift their arms to the level of the display device. There are also PC upgrade accessories, like memory module kits to give your desktop PC system a much-needed boost. These kits are usually rated with operating frequencies from 1,600MHz to high-end ones with 2,666MHz operating frequency.

 

 

 

Windows 8 OS-centric devices allow users to indirectly immerse themselves in the multi-touch experience of the new operating system without having to lift their arms beyond the surface level of their desks. They also empower users who have yet to invest in multi-touch display devices.

 

 

One of the most common PC upgrade accessories is the memory kit. Such a kit made comprise up to four memory modules that offer up to 32GB of memory capacity. Most of these kits are rated at 1,600MHz opeating frequency while the higher-end ones can go up to 2,666MHz.

 

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

OS Support: Some inputs devices are made exclusively for Windows 8; while some have support for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Hence, do pay attention to the device's specifications.

Capacity: The sweetspot for current memory kits is 8GB of memory capacity. Another point to note is how the memory density or how the capacity is spread over the physical memory kits. A 16GB memory  kits can be spread over four or a pair of memory modules. This will naturally depend on the number of DIMM or memory module slots on the system's motherboard; hence, upgraders and system builders need to pay attention to these aspects.
