The need for upgrading our hardware is a constant evolving process this day in age. As the the Content on the Internet Changes and becomes more elaborate and demanding through Streaming Digital Media, Movies, Music, Online Games and Website Images and Download-able Files so do our Hardware Requirements. Unfortunately the days of only needing 512mb of RAM to adequately open programs and render web pages efficiently are long since over and a new day has dawned where we now see systems needing a minimum of 2gb of Memory to effectively and efficiency render images on websites and view all of the complex Steaming Media that we all enjoy.
Memory is not the only limiting factor these days either, we now need massive Hard Drive Capacities to be able to store all of our Movies, Digital Music, Photos and Videos and more powerful Graphics Cards to play the latest Cutting Edge Video Games and watch our Movies in 1080p Resolution and in HDMI Format. In addition to the Content on the Internet becoming much more Hardware intensive and demanding we also need to consider the programs we run on our systems they too have also not only increased in size but have also become much more demanding in terms of Processing Power needed to run them effectively and efficiently here to we also see where having more Memory will greatly benefit how fast and responsive these hardware intensive applications open up and perform.
