A typical desktop computer specification

Here is a sample desktop computer specification if you are searching for a good desktop computer to buy. I have listed the most component features you should check when you buy desktop computer.

Actually, the intended usage of a computer should be your first step to answer. Why are you going to buy? What are you going to do with it? I say this because you don’t have to buy a high-end pc for tasks such as word processing, spreadsheet, web browsing or e-mail.

If you do have enough budgets, go for it. For the future it will serve you well for graphical and design works too.

This is a typical desktop computer specification, this doesn’t mean you should buy this computer. It is just a guide to help you.
