TechwareLabs Article: Building Computers for the Weekend Geek - PCSTATS.com TechwareLabs Article: Building Computers for the Weekend Geek
Fri, Apr 01 2011 | 4:20PM | Filed under: Beginners Guides| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

The face of personal computing is constantly changing and evolving. There are more terms out there than ever before, which makes it harder and harder to keep everything straight. Is the i7 really better than the i5? Why are some computer packages so much cheaper than others? Is that barebones computer for $300 really worth it? What should I really look for when I look at the details of a “PC Bargain”? What does all of that stuff DO anyway?? I’ll try to answer some of those questions, and in such a way that even the Weekend Geek (if there is such a thing) won’t walk away scratching their heads.

Slow computer got you down? Maybe a hardware upgrade should be in your cards, if so this guide to the Fundamentals of Upgrading a PC is an invaluable read. PCSTATS Tips
