    can anyone help with this? im thinking of upgrading a few bits n bobs on my pc but think i heard that the components have to be compatible with the motherboard? where can i find the motherboard details and how does it relate to these specs?

    I think the money you spend upgrading this would be better spent on a new pc or new mobo and cpu atleast. Just my own opinion of course.

    nah thats not the specs for my good one. i bought an old ibm to practise software and hardware stuff on, which has a pentium 2 and only a 5 gb hd and about 150-odd of ram. just looking for where to find out things like , socket numbers of mobo's,what it can handle number of pins for ram, etc.....

    that's what im planning to do, i stripped the ibm and put it back together with no dramas but that doesn't really take much skill, and i even mucked that up by not pushing the cpu in properly! :blink

    i have been reading a few things on building but the variety of hardware is what is confusing me
