The processor is the "brains" of a computer and does all the work in a computer - the faster the processor, the better the computer performs.
Computer memory is the most important component when it comes to system performance.
The maximum memory that can be used in any 32bit operating system is 4GB in total (this is for addressing the memory, graphics, keyboard, USB, etc), and only (approximately) 3.2GB will be useable, this is a 32 bit limitation. 64 bit systems do not have this limitation.
Hard drives store the information on magnetic disk. The smallest hard drive you should consider is 120GB (Gigabytes).
Hard drive storage capacity is rated by all manufacturers by the hard drives' decimal storage capacity and not octal, and your computer will always report a smaller drive than expected (as a rule of thumb: 95.367% of the rated value, for example: 95.36 MB for a 100MB).
We recommend at least a 300Watt (300W) power supply to ensure reliable performance over a longer period of time, although 250W will do the job for the majority of business computers. Gaming system require higher ratings due to the power consumption of the graphics cards.
