High, I am looking for a benchmark for a desktop(non laptop), what would you say is the most common type motherboard sold in the shop, the processior that is normally sold with it, how much ram, and at what mhz. The simple reason being that I am aware that there are many types around and yet I am unable to tell which is the norm.

Please nothing fancy, just very very normal, and it's funny how we can look back at a certain year and say "in those days we had X or Y machines" and yet it is not so easy when we ask the same question about today now.

You cant really say because there is such a vast range, ram most bought pcs will come with 512mb and ac97 onboard audio. Thats about all you can really say about the norm as there is none.

Thanks Wariorscot.

Perhaps if I rephrase the question into "which is the most sold type of computer these days and what is its spec's?" someone else might be tempted to reply here.

motherboard type:
mhz:
processor:
ram: 512
harddrive size:
onboard audio: ac97
other bibs and bobs:


Nothing sinister, I am just trying to make a benchmark for myself while perhaps helping newbies to relate to infomation given on this site.

well the motherboards are all ATX standard ones, same with cases and power supplies, they usually have at least a cd-rw drive if not a dvd-r drive. 80gigs is a very normal HD size but its one of the more variable specs you can get as much as 200 gig. most new bought pocs come with tft mointors as well if you want a bib or a bob with a qwerty keyboard and an optical mouse.
