Continued from Computer Hardware Guide Part 1 

 We have covered some of the essential computer hardware in part 1 of our computer hardware guide. And now its for the rest of the computer component. 


Hard Disk Drive 

This computer hardware keeps all data permanently, unlike the RAM    which will erase data if the computer is shut down. Comes in sizes of 2.5” (for laptop) and 3.5” (for Desktop) 

Usually a numeric figure (in Gb) is stated and comes in various capacity.  

A rough calculation  

Assuming a 4 min long music song is stored in mp3 format and takes up 4mb worth of space in the hard disk. 160Gb will be able to store around 40,000 songs! 



Graphic Card   

As stated, this card is initially responsible for displaying images onto the monitor. However, due to the high rendering first-person-shooter games being produced, gamers will demand their graphics card to be better than the CPU. This is due to the fact that the graphic card will handle all taxing gaming images which the CPU was unable to process. To meet up the demands, even graphics cards are going dual core! 



Power Supply Unit (PSU) 

The heart of the every computer! This computer hardware sends power (pumps blood) to various devices, such as the mainboard, hard disk drives, etc.  

This is often the most overlooked hardware and is frequently compromised due to budget constraints. However, by cutting down on getting a good PSU, risks such as electric shock and under-current may occurs which could instantly destroy the mainboard and other hardware by providing the wrong current or voltage!!
