We all are obsessed with power…well, in this case, computing power.

How much power do you need in a computer?

First, let’s define speed and capacity. The speed of the processor and the RAM (read-only memory) capacity are the two indicators of speed. Speed is usually measured in gigahertz (3.0 is common).  RAM loads the data from your hard drive or a similar source.  Capacities of 2 to 4 gigabytes are most common

Then, let’s talk about what are you going to be doing?

  1. Internet usage
  2. Productivity tasks
  3. Playing videos and audio
  4. Video editing
  5. 3D animation
  6. CAD software
  7. Gaming applications

The more passive tasks (the first three on this list) will require less speed.  The more memory-intense tasks (4 through 7 on this list) will require more power.The point is to match your speed and RAM capacity to your task at hand.  This will also ensure you are not over buying those features for what you are doing.
