Configuration of a pc, Basic Computer Science

Configuration of a PC:

Generally, when you think of purchasing a Computer, you first try to exactly know what will be the hardware components such as processor, memory etc. of your computer. It depends on several factors such as your computation needs, your budget, your preferences about brands etc. Before purchasing a PC you should be aware about the different components of a PC and its typical configuration so that you can make a suitable choice. When you visit a PC shop for purchase a PC,  you clearly need to  state that what will be the storage capacity of your hard-disk, processor speed and its type, the amount of RAM you want to have in your PC, different ports and connector etc. One can either purchase a branded PC or may  purchase individual components of PC and assemble them to form a PC.

 Configuration of a PC usually mean the technical details of the System. Many softwares require  that computer must have some minimum requirements so that the software can run properly on that system, hence we need to check the configuration of the system. Actually the term computer configuration means the technical specification of the computer. In this specification details generally we include speed of the processor, RAM, Hard-Disk Drive, Video card, etc. The configuration of one computer may vary from others. Generally configuration of a computer depends on the user  requirement  for example, a user who mostly works on multimedia software, graphics software, scientific computation etc, needs more powerful computer rather than a normal PC user.
