Top Computer Upgrades related questions
There are no specific licenses or certifications needed. However, most experts have some background in computer science or IT. Feel free to discuss any technical details about your PC upgrade with your Tasker.
You do not need to provide your Tasker with tools to upgrade your PC. Your Tasker will most likely just need a flat-head and cross-head screwdrivers and some cable ties. They may also need access to your Wi-Fi to download any software updates after upgrading your PC.
This may vary between one Tasker and another. Some Taskers can get you the parts you need to upgrade your PC for an additional fee, while others will only install the upgrades. Be sure to discuss this in detail with your Tasker.

What do computer upgrades services include?
Upgrading your computer can mean many things. To some, an upgrade can be replacing your existing computer and assembling a new PC altogether. Sometimes, it's upgrading your overall PC or gaming set up by installing a sound system, RGB lights, or a standing desk. While to most, this means replacing outdated hardware in your computer to increase overall performance.
Specific computer upgrades and PC services may vary among Taskers, but your computer upgrade services generally include the following:
Computer memory upgrade
Upgrading your computer memory or RAM (short for Random Access Memory) is by far the easiest, most cost-effective solution to bring your slowing PC up to speed. Your Tasker can do this with most computers by taking the old memory and replacing it with a brand new one with more RAM.
Upgrading your PC with more RAM will give you an instant boost in performance, especially when you use resource-intensive tasks. You might need extra if you're a competitive gamer, software developer, or database developer.
Storage drive upgrades
You'll need a new hard drive for only two reasons. The first is running out of space, and the second is if you need faster performance. You can have your Tasker add a storage drive or replace your existing drive with one that has larger storage space.
If you've uploaded and backed up all your data in a cloud and deleted unnecessary files but lack the space, then you'll need more storage. But if you need faster performance, upgrading your hard drive to one with a higher RPM or a solid-state drive can increase your computer's write speed and overall performance.
To put it into perspective, a mechanical hard drive with a 5400RPM drive has a write speed of up to 100 megabytes per second. While a 7200PRM drive has a write speed of up to 150 megabytes per second.
On the other hand, a regular solid-state drive has a write speed of 300 to 500 megabytes per second. There are also high-end solid-state drives with write speeds of up to 3000 to 5000 megabytes per second or even more.
Graphics card upgrades
If you're not a gamer, 3D animator, video editor, or graphic designer, you can skip this. All computers nowadays come with integrated graphics that can handle productivity tasks, office work, or streaming videos here and there.
But if you're any of the above, be prepared to shell out some serious cash for a GPU (or Graphics Processing Unit). It may be expensive, but upgrading your graphics card every few years will improve the performance and visuals for games, 3D animation, and video editing software.
Most people get by with mid-range GPUs. But the prices of high tier graphics cards can vary exponentially from one model to another and could cost more than the rest of your computer. Your Tasker can help you find and install the best graphics card that's compatible with your current PC specifications.
Processor and motherboard upgrades
Upgrading your processor or motherboard isn't as simple as the upgrades mentioned above. These are expensive and harder to install, not to mention you'll need to check for hardware compatibility issues as well.
The new processor that you want might not fit on your motherboard, which means you would need to buy a new one. If your old components such as RAM or power supply aren't compatible, then you'd need to upgrade those, too. It's only worth upgrading your processor if it gives you significantly higher speeds, more cores, or upgrading from an older processor generation to a new one.
If you're unsure, your Taskers can help you assess if these upgrades are necessary since the prices of motherboards and processors can cost you more than half of a new PC. If you're replacing a damaged board, you may want to try getting a circuit board repair service first since it's a way cheaper option compared to buying a new board and replacing components.
