Should I buy a new computer or upgrade my current one?

Buying vs. Upgrading

With the drop in prices for new desktop computers, it is a good idea to consider the benefits of buying a new computer compared to having your old computer upgraded or replaced.

If extensive works needs to be done on the motherboard or hard drive, it is better to consider buying a new computer rather than putting more money into an outdated computer.

However, if the only work that needs to be completed on an old system is upgrading the operating system and buying new memory. You will save more than buying a new computer.
