You'd be surprised how often there's a quick and inexpensive solution for even the oldest and most broken seeming devices.

You'd be surprised how often an inexpensive upgrade can give a new lease of life to an old, slow computer. We carry a stock of common upgrade parts that can improve the speed and capabilities of most computers.
If your PC has less than 4GB of RAM it could almost certainly benefit from an upgrade. Not having enough RAM in your machine can make it so slow that it becomes painful to use.
Solid State Hard Drives (SSDs)
The slowest component in any PC or Laptop is the main storage device, the hard drive. Older more common Hard Drives are made up from spinning discs that due to their mechanical nature are vastly slower than any other part of your computer, and as a result hold everything else back when your device could be running much faster.
Recently Solid State Drives have been developed that have no moving parts, and as a result can keep up with the rest of your system drastically better. Replacing the old hard drive on even a 10 year old computer with a Solid State Drive will transform the performance. Starting from around £100 we can fit a new SSD into your PC or laptop, and transfer your existing data over.

We can figure out how to get you gaming for the least outlay possible.
