Computer Accessories You Will Need!

March 15, 2019

One aspect of a computer that many people neglect to think about is their computer setup or in other words, the accessories. This includes a huge range of different items, and we are going to talk about some of the most important that you should invest in. Most of these accessories are for desktop computers, however, some of these will work for laptops.

  1. Screen

One of the most important aspects of your computer setup is the screen. You can find a desktop screen that will work for almost anything you are looking to do. For example, if you are looking for a screen that is good for streaming, then you are going to want a display that has a high refresh rate of 120hz and up. You will also need to choose between 1080p, 1440p, and 4K resolution. The higher resolution you go, the better it will look. You always will need a more powerful computer to run the higher resolution screens.


  1. Keyboard

If you use your computer for work then you will probably interact with your keyboard more than anything else. So having a keyboard you like to use is important. This could be something cheap like the default keyboard that comes with your computer, or you can purchase a nicer keyboard. This could be an ergonomic keyboard or a mechanical keyboard.


  1. Mouse

Next, to your keyboard, the mouse will be the accessory you will use most. There are different types of mouse, including rollerball, ergonomic, and touchpads. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to mice. Some mice also have extra buttons on them, so if you are looking for a mouse to fill a specific use, then buy one that is made for that scenario. If you are unsure of what you even need it is a good idea to talk to a tech company like W.A.C.D. We can take a look at what you do with your computer on a daily basis, and give you a suggestion.


  1. Speakers

Speakers are often overlooked, and many people are using terrible speakers. Good speakers will make a huge difference with the quality of sound. You can spend very little if you want, but if you value sound quality, then having a good set of speakers is a must. There are many different brands, and types of speakers available.


  1. Desk

Were you initial about your computer desk or did you just choose the first desk that someone offered or the cheapest you could find? A good desk makes a huge difference in how comfortable you are when using your computer. This is especially important if you use your computer on a daily basis or for a long period of time. Things that you should consider is how much space you will need on your desk. Will you have multiple screens? Also, make sure that your desk is the correct height and will house everything that you will need to store at your desk. For example, your desktop tower will need to be stored somewhere. Will this be on you’re the ground? In a cabinet? Etc. You can find desks from many different places and this could be a new desk or maybe you want to use an antique desk. You could even build your own desk if you want to!


  1. Other

This category is going to lump in any other accessory that you may need. These are different for each and every person. If you do a lot of conference calls, podcasts, music, etc. then a good microphone would be an important accessory to have. A webcam is another accessory that is very useful and needed.
