Project Storage Devices & Video Considerations
In this Unit, you complete and submit Phase 2 of your Course Project: Storage Devices & Video Considerations.
In this phase,simulate the purchase of one or more hard drives (or solid state drives), optical drives, and consider whether you will be adding a video card in an expansion slot or sticking with the motherboard’s on-board video.
The requirements for Phase 2 of your course project are as follows:
The hard drive(s) must be of sufficient size to meet the intended use of the computer. Indicate the brand, model number, and key specifications such as spindle speed, access time, amount of cache (RAM on the hard drive). Also indicate the price and source of the drive(s).
The optical drive needs to be sufficient for loading the operating system and meeting whatever other needs based on the intended use of the computer. Indicate whether you chose a CD, DVD, Blue-Ray, etc. and whether it is read-only, writable, or re-writable. Also indicate the price and source.
The video graphics expansion board (if desired) must exceed the capabilities of the on-board graphics of the motherboard. Whether you choose to purchase a graphics card or not, provide the rationale for this decision. If chosen, list the specifications (including types of video output such as VGA, DVI, HDMI, Display Port, etc.), the source, and the price.
