Want a new desktop computer?

Like magic, get a new computer in place of your old one, with all your data on it, programs just the way you like them, and we can even come to you and set it up.

Below is a system builder you can use to pick exactly the sort of computer you want. You get to pick every component, and we do the rest.

Antivirus

antivirus
Antivirus software is subscription-based software that is installed on your PC to help protect it from malware and other nasties. Although Microsoft Windows 10 does come with built-in protection with Windows Defender, it's a good idea to pay the extra for a high-quality commercial antivirus like Kaspersky.

You want your computer to come in one piece right?

Case

case
All your computer parts are stored safely inside this shiny black box.

CPU

cpu
Speed: 
Speed not selected yet
The brains of the operation, the CPU (Central Processing Unit) does all the actual 'computing' work. It plays a big part in determining how fast your computer will run. Choose carefully, as once you've picked a CPU, it won't be feasible to change it again until you get a new computer.

Storage

storage
Speed: 
Speed not selected yet
This is where all your data will be stored. You'll notice something odd in this category, you pay more for a smaller one! The reason for the extra cost is the speed. The smaller one is called a 'Solid State Drive' (SSD). Solid State Drives work much like a USB stick. They have no moving parts and thus run a lot faster, generally about four times faster than an old style hard drive which has multiple spinning platters and an arm much like a record player which moves across the platter to retrieve the information. Those platters spin at 7,200 revolutions per minute, so they're still quick, but I digress.

Input

input
Keyboard and mouse, essential gear for controlling your computer. Remember, newer computers often don't have a 'PS2' port (or if they do, they only have one), which might be how your old keyboard and/or mouse connected to your old computer. If so, then you better get a new keyboard and mouse here because that old one may not work. If in doubt, call us and we can work it out together.

Install

install
Want us to transfer your data or install anything special? Pick this and we'll get that done.

Motherboard

motherboard
The motherboard is what everything plugs into inside that black box (the case). including the CPU, RAM, and drives. It's a must for your new computer, so we'll just pop one of those in for you OK?

Monitor

monitor
When choosing a monitor, things to lookout for are whether or not they have built-in speakers, how big the screen is, and a tricky one - the response time. Basically, the lower the response time, the better. It's how long each dot on the screen (a pixel) takes to respond when told to change, so the quicker the better.

Onsite Setup

onsite
Need help getting your new computer setup at your place? Add this in and we'll sort that out for you.

Optical Drive

optical
By optical drive, we just mean a DVD, or Blu-Ray. In the old days, there were also plain old CD Players, but they're long gone now. Note, a DVD can read a CD, and a Blu-Ray can read both CD's and DVD's. Note this is an optional component as nowadays you hardly even need an optical drive as all software can be downloaded. Up to you.

RAM

ram
RAM stands for Random Access Memory. When your computer is running, it can only execute programs when they are in RAM, so it's constantly shifting data in and out of RAM to run it. Generally 8GB is a good amount of RAM to get. Windows will work OK with 4GB, but might need to work a bit harder doing all that swapping if you open lots of programs at once.

Wireless card

wireless
If you won't have your modem next to your computer, you might need a wireless card to connect to the internet. If that's the case, be sure to throw this in.

Operating System (O/S)

operating_system
The operating system is what runs when you first turn your computer on (well, after the BIOS, but that's another story). Here at Computer Whiz HQ we're selling Windows computers, so you'll need a copy of Windows.

Office Suite

office
Do you use Word or Excel? Or do you like to access your email through Outlook? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you'll need a copy of Microsoft Office on your new computer.
