Future-Proof Your PC

Instead of buying a pc that’s going to be obsolete in two years, how about upgrade or even build your own computer?

How do you Future-Proof your PC

Future-proofing your computer essentially means making sure it has the latest technology and hardware that will make it last longer than buying a new computer every few years. But is it really possible to future-proof your computer? If it is, how can you do it and why isn’t everyone doing it already?

There are some ways to future-proof your pc, but Nothing lasts forever. Technology that’s cutting-edge especially parts like your motherboard and processor will probably have a pretty long life. That’s because these big components are more slowly adopted and less likely to become outdated fast. If you’re researching trends as well, you can find motherboards and processors that will be able to support software for a long time, even as the software itself requires more resources.

The general idea seems to be that spending a reasonable amount on what you need and then upgrading components is more practical than spending an absurd amount on a possible trend.

What makes a PC outdated or obsolete?

Keep in mind that eventually, all computers and technology will become obsolete. Most importantly, what are you using your computer for? The irony of the situation is that people who probably want to future-proof their computers, those using advanced software and resources, are the least likely to have success preparing their computers for future use. If you’re primarily using your PC to type up Word docs or to connect to the Internet, you’re in luck. Your computer will probably last a lot farther into the future because you aren’t requiring much from it, other than what was already on the market in 1990’s.
