Processor performance is mainly affected by two things: clock speed (GHz) and number of cores. A higher clock speed means your computer can perform tasks faster, while more cores means your computer can perform more tasks at the same time. For everyday usage and media, more cores is better. For gaming and processor intensive tasks like encoding video, a higher clock speed is more desirable.
The more memory, the better. 4 GB is plenty for most people. 2 GB is the minimum we recommend for general tasks. 6 or 8 GB is more useful for people who perform intensive tasks like professional media creation and editing, or scientific tasks.
Generally, the higher the model number and the higher the price, the faster the graphics. It is also good to note the amount and type of memory. DDR5 will be faster than DDR3, and a higher amount of memory will also positively affect performance.
A good rule of thumb in choosing hard drive capacity is to look at your current hard drive and see how much capacity you are using. Then multiply that by 2 or 3. 250 GB is plenty for most people, but 500 GB is our recommended choice. A faster spindle speed (7200 vs 5400 RPM) means faster access to data and a faster PC overall. Solid State Drives (SSD) are the fastest by far, and use less power, create less heat, make no noise, and are more resistant to shock. (G-forces)
