Choosing a PC Workstation: Customization and Performance

September 2021

For those who utilize them for both work and personal purposes, a PC workstation is an enormously valuable and powerful computing resource. If you’re in the market for a new PC workstation, you have a lot to consider before making a purchase decision.

At Simply NUC, we’re proud to offer a wide selection of stationary and mobile business workstations that provide incredible richness and amazing performance for the heaviest workloads. We’re happy to assist you with any part of your workstation purchase needs, from helping you configure a custom workstation based on your unique needs to providing you with guidance on how to maintain high performance of your PC for years to come.

What are some of the top factors to consider when choosing a new PC workstation? This two-part blog series will go over several to ensure you end up with a high-quality PC workstation.

Customization & Configuration

While a pre-configured PC workstation can typically get the job done, many of our customers can’t resist the opportunity to get everything they want with a completely customized PC. Building and configuring your own workstation is the best solution for those who want full control over their build to ensure they’ll get the exact hardware they need. 

In particular, content creators, engineers, and web developers have specific PC needs, including advanced graphics cards and the ability to connect other devices through an array of ports. Whatever your line of work is, Simply NUC is available to discuss and help you build a customized computer for your needs.

Something we occasionally hear is the idea that you can build your own custom computer for less than a pre-configured PC. While this is technically possible, if you’re not a professional computer technician, the work can be extremely challenging and time consuming. If you make a mistake, or if the components you chose are not compatible, you may end up spending the money you “saved” in order to get your workstation fully functioning. Leave it to the professionals at Simply NUC to help you build your custom PC just the way you want it.

Performance Level

Another vital factor for any workstation you’re considering is overall performance. This is determined by several key components including the central processor, graphics processor, and storage and memory selection. 

If you’re looking to pair your workstation with specific applications or software systems, make sure that the hardware you choose will be able to handle it without latency or other issues. If you’re concerned about visual responsiveness, take a close look at any visually demanding software that you’ll be using and see if there are any graphic requirements associated with it.

If you’re working with a custom PC manufacturer like Simply NUC, we’ll be happy to evaluate your software needs to help you build the perfect solution.
