					Pick the Best Computer Accessories

Buying a computer is not an easy decision. There are a lot of factors to
consider other than just the price. You have to consider your needs, the
specifications of the computer, aesthetics, and a whole lot more. And
when you do get to finally decide on a computer, other decisions come
into play, such as picking the best computer accessories.

There are a variety of computer accessories available in the market
today. They could be as trivial as specialty mouse pads or keyboards,
while others can play a more important role. This article will focus on
giving you tips on how to pick the best computer accessories that will
actually help make the most out of your computer experience.

PC Case

The computer case is one of the most important accessories you can get
for your PC. This can have a significant impact on how well your PC
functions, and it also helps cool essential components in your computer.

These can either come in desktop or tower form. In tower form, you can
choose from mini, mid or full. When choosing from these sizes, you have
to consider whether you have the right space in your computer desk. If
you want to save space, then a mini-tower would do. If you're the type
who always wants to upgrade the components of your PC, then getting a
full or larger case will work for you.

Other than size, make sure the case complements your existing PC
components and peripherals. Take note of the number of slots and drive
bays. If you want to expand your PC system, then getting a case which has
more drive bays would be preferable.

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

If you want to be protected from power disturbances such as surges,
spikes, brownouts, and blackouts that could ultimately lead to data loss
and even damage to your hardware, then get a UPS system. It is a battery
back-up that keeps your system running in the event of power
disturbances.

Speakers

Getting the right type of speakers will depend on your needs. If music
and sounds are very important to you, then choose speakers that produce
high-quality sound. Also consider if you have the right space in your
desk to accommodate the speakers. Setting these speakers up in the proper
location would also matter.

Headsets with Built-in Microphones

If you don't have much room for speakers, consider getting headsets with
built-in microphones. There are two types of these: the analog headsets
and USB headsets. Analog headsets come with two 3.5mm plugs for the
microphone and headphone jacks in your system's sound card. USB headsets
on the other hand, have no need for a sound card, since all you need is a
USB hub, making it perfect for use in Macs and PCs. Their mics also
produce better voice quality than analog type.

USB

Having a Universal Serial Bus is something you want to consider. It is
considered to be the connection of choice, and almost all accessories use
it. In buying one, consider speed. USB 2.0 is a high-speed one, while USB
1.1 supports lower speeds. Make sure your PC can support high-speed USB
if you plan to get one. Getting a self-powered hub or a bus-powered hub
is also something you should think about.
