5.2. Fine-Tuning and Upgrading Hardware Components

It's frustrating how our computers never seem to be as fast as they were when we first bought them. It's even more frustrating that documentation (both the Windows manual and the docs that come with your hardware) never makes mention of improving performance. And certainly, no manual will tell you how—and when—to upgrade.

A computer is ultimately the sum of its parts, so any discussion of improving performance starts with each component. You're not likely to see any such discussion in Windows' documentation, and the documentation that comes with most components is pretty pathetic, to say the least.
