Calculate the total price to purchase all the components required to build a state-of-the-art gaming computer from components available on the internet.

Before attempting this exercise, be sure you have completed all of chapter 3 and course module readings, participated in the weekly conferences, and thoroughly understand the examples throughout the chapter. As before, there are 3 main components of your submission including the problem analysis, program design and documentation, and sample test data.

1. Using a similar approach as subtopic 3.6 (textbook page 147): “A new Car Price Calculator”, provide your analysis for the following problem statement: You need to write a program that will calculate the total price to purchase all the components required to build a state-of-the-art gaming computer from newegg.com. You will need to conduct some analysis on newegg.com (or amazon.com) regarding the possible options and prices to be considered. However; assume the computer will consist of the following components:

CPU
Case
Power supply
Motherboard
Hard Drive
RAM
DVD
Sound Card
Monitor
Graphics Card
Operating System

I would recommend you keep the option choices limited to 3 different components, or your program will really grow fast. For example, you could provide options for the Operating System (Windows 7, Red Hat Linux), the RAM (4 MB, 8 MB, 12 MB) and the Hard Drive Size (500 GB, 1 TB, 1.5 TB) and leave everything else as a baseline. I leave it up to you to determine which components you want to add options for and for researching the approximate prices. Be sure your prices are fairly realistic.

Your analysis should be clearly written and demonstrate your thought process and steps used to analyze the problem. Be sure to include what is the required output? What is the necessary input and how you will obtain the required output from the given…...

Components of a Computer System

...IT140-1203B-04 Phase 2 Discussion Board: Components of a Computer System Michael M. Noone 8/29/2012 There are several considerations that must be looked at before making a decision to upgrade from a Windows NT domain with a primary controller, and a secondary domain controller to a Windows Server 2008 with active directory. The first thing I would recommend considering is whether or not this server upgrade will require the company to upgrade the workstation OS’s, or the machines entirely. It is important to consider whether or not the project will be cost effective. If the company is running older machines, hardware upgrades may need to be made to complete the transition. The next thing to consider would be that this jump will require updating to Windows Server 2000/2003, then ultimately to Windows 2008. Finally we need to look at whether or not we construct new servers to migrate the current information to, or will the company be able to withstand a considerable length of downtime to simply upgrade the current servers. Now that we have made considerations for this change, we must now take some preliminary action in order to make it work. First, if we are considering upgrading the current system, we must first ensure that our hardware will support the change. If we are going to construct a new system we would begin to set up our new servers and databases. To conduct the upgrade we will want a plan of action. The first order of business would be to set up the......

I use a variety of networks on a daily basis during the work week. To start, I work from home and I must first connect to my home LAN which has an internet connection. My home LAN consists of a router that shares my internet connection wirelessly. Next, I connect to my work’s LAN by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). My work’s LAN consists of a router and several switches. On the network, there are several workstations, servers, printers, and various resources that I access to perform my job tasks. The VPN connection is also handled by a specific router for VPN access. In addition to my home network, work network, and VPN, I also have a cloud-based music service where I access my music that gets me through the day.

The Impact of a Price Change Into Two Components

...Economists often separate the impact of a price change into two components, the substitution effect and the income effect. The substitution effect involves the substitution of good x1 for good x2 or vice-versa due to a change in relative prices of the two goods. The income effect results from an increase or decrease in the consumer’s real income or purchasing power as a result of the price change. The sums of these two effects are called the price effect. Sir John Hicks (1904-1989) awarded the Nobel Laureate in Economics (with Kenneth J. Arrow) in 1972 for work on general equilibrium theory and welfare economics was the founder of the income compensated demand curve, we are going to look at the hicks income compensated demand curve and why it differs from the Marshallian demand function (named after Alfred Marshall) (26 July 1842 – 13 July 1924) was one of the most influential economists of his time. The Compensated Demand Curve Definition: the compensated demand curve is a demand curve that ignores the income effect of a price change, only taking into account the substitution effect. To do this, utility is held constant from the change in the price of the good. We will graphically derive the compensated demand curve from indifference curves and budget constraints by incorporating the substitution and income effects, and use the compensated demand curve to find the compensating variation (refers to the amount of additional money an agent would need to reach its......

Modern Chip Components

...Chapter 3 Computer Hardware W1 MODERN CHIP COMPONENTS The four most important concepts in microprocessor architectures are functional units, pipelines, caches, and buses. These factors determine how fast a processor will run and how efficiently it will communicate with the outside world. Functional units are subsystems of logic circuits that carry out a program’s instructions. Different types of functional units handle different instructions. Integer units handle fixed-point arithmetic and Boolean logic. Floating-point units handle more complex arithmetic operations, involving noninteger values. Load/store units load data from and store data to memory. Pipelines work like factory assembly lines. Each stage of the pipeline handles one relatively small and simple task that comprises part of the work needed to execute one computer instruction. A simple pipeline has four stages: fetch (retrieve an instruction from cache); decode (figure out what the instruction does); execute (carry out the instruction); and write back (store the result). Each pipeline stage usually takes one clock cycle. Most modern processors have superscalar pipelines, which are two or more pipelines arranged in parallel. That way, the processor can issue and complete multiple instructions in each clock cycle. The processor may also rearrange the instructions at execution time to put them in a more efficient order. This procedure is called dynamic execution. Modern processors can operate at speeds above......

Lifestyle Components

...Cook 09-12-2014 Professor Ashby Brame Component Lifestyles What are my component lifestyles, you ask? What exactly is a component lifestyle? What do I like or what am I interested in? What makes me tick, per say? I guess at this point in my life I can narrow it down to three things, besides being in school full time. Those three components happen to be Caffeine, Cars, and Music. Why these three? Well, caffeine helps me cope with something called the morning, cars are fun and very fast sometimes, and music is just awesome. I’m writing this paper to describe why I like these things and how they are marketed to me. Oh, and thanks for taking interest because my life is actually pretty awesome. The first component I am going to cover is Caffeine. I work for a company; you may have heard of it, it is kind of popular. They are all over the world in fact. And in New York City, there is one on every street corner, literally. You probably drink their products every day. Ringing any bells? Yup, it is Starbucks. I have been a “partner” with them for nearly seven years. I drink their coffee every day too. I guess you can say I am and addict. Oh well. And the best part is that I rarely have to pay for their products. But, what exactly are their products? Their biggest product is obviously their coffee. Starbucks also produces mugs, tumblers, brewers, grinders, French presses, and so on. But it all comes back to the coffee itself. Almost all the other products Starbucks produces......

Computer Hardware Components

...Discussion: Computer Hardware Components There where several different articles that I found that talked extensively about different computer hardware components. The one component that I found that was interesting and that I never know how many different computer components go into it is graphics cards. Graphics cards use every part of a computer to function correctly and they are built right into the card its self. They have their own RAM, some have their own power supply and they even have their own type of CPU that is called a graphics processing unit or GPU. The author, Jeff Tyson, went into detail on how the graphics card takes information from the CPU and makes it into a picture on your monitor. Tyson (2001) brock it down into lemans terms by saying: Think of a computer as a company with its own art department. When people in the company want a piece of artwork, they send a request to the art department. The art department decides how to create the image and then puts it on paper. The end result is that someone's idea becomes an actual, viewable picture. (P.1) I think it is just amazing on how the simple little card can take information and know how to put it on the monitor as a picture. What is even more amazing is how it works with gaming and is able to make these calculations that fast without any issues, that’s if you have the card that can handle the game. Most standard motherboards come with some type of graphics card but if you want to do more then......
