Define Your Dream PC

In this course, we’ll explore what hardware you should consider in either building or buying your ultimate Windows PC. A decent budget PC is good for basic tasks like writing e-mails and using applications like Microsoft Office. However, there are many tasks that require the additional power and performance offered only by powerful high performance PCs. For example, if you want the power to be able to carry out detailed photo or video editing or play the latest games at full speed with high detail graphics then you’re going to need a PC with better components.

There are huge advantages to owning a high performance PC. The speed and power that they pack makes even demanding tasks seem effortless. You also won’t have to worry that your PC won’t be compatible with the latest hardware and software.

The only problem with a high performance PC is if you don’t know what you want then you’re unlikely to get what you need. A manufacturer slapping a label on a PC saying “Dream PC” doesn’t always make it one. With a little bit of knowledge and planning...

you can make sure you buy the ultimate high performance PC that is suited to your needs.

The best way to plan is to write exactly what you want on paper. We’ve included this Dream PC specification sheet for you to use in this class. This will help you know roughly how much you want to spend (set an upper limit on how much you are willing to spend) on the PC components that matter to you.

At this point, before you look at the hardware you want in your Dream PC, start out by answering the first questions on the spec sheet to determine what exactly you want to do with your PC.

We’ll look in greater detail at the various hardware components in other lessons so you know exactly what to buy.
