The choice of consciousness is an essential criterion for the speed of the PC. If possible, you should not save on the main memory, because if this is scarce and data in other storage media must be stored, the work processes are much slower. With enough memory, you can work more fluidly and relieve the system.

What Is The Memory?

Working memory is the memory in a computer that contains the programs or program parts currently being executed and the data required in the process. The processor immediately accesses memory (or memory), so size and performance are critical to the overall performance of the Dell PowerEdge T30 and all PCs.

Also “RAM” (random access memory) called all running processes and programs on the mind cached. A RAM module usually has  1, 2, 4, 8 or 16 gigabytes of memory. For small claims 4 GB of RAM are sufficient. However, we recommend at least 8 GB of RAM for PCs and laptops. Main memory is relatively cheap and can be easily upgraded in stand PCs. 

Which Hard Drive Is The Right One? HDD or SSD?

While the processor is often referred to as the heart or brain of the computer, the hard drive is a memory. Hard drives store data. One distinguishes between  SSD  (Solid State Drive) and  HDD (Hard Disk Drive) hard disks. The classic HDDs consist of one or more magnetic disks and one read head each. While the magnetic disks are rotating during operation, the read head moves over the drives and reads out the stored data.

By contrast, SSDs consist of many flash memories that are also installed in USB sticks. SSDs have been increasingly used for several years because they have enormous advantages over HDDs. Since no mechanical parts are installed in SSDs, they are much more robust than HDDs. While defects and data loss are inevitable when HDDs crash, SSDs are much less sensitive.

The most crucial factor that speaks for an SSD, however, is that it works much faster than a classic hard drive, up to twice. Besides, SSDs are lighter,  more efficient,  and therefore use less battery. HDDs are cheaper than SSDs and offer more storage space. Nevertheless, we also strongly recommend a powerful SSD for HPE ProLiant DL360 Gen10 and even about the future.

For simple word processing enough  128 GB SSD, for more memory, 256 GB SSD is recommended. If you decide to go for a standard HDD, it’s best to grab at least  1TB of storage or choose the hybrid solution, an SSHD.
