Overall, the performance of a computer is dependent on how well it works together as a whole. Continually upgrading one part of the computer while leaving outdated parts installed will not improve performance much, if at all. Below, is a discussion of some of how to improve computer performance focusing on speed, connection to internet and storage capacity. Improving Computer Speed
