Can someone tell me the difference between PCI, PCIe and AGP?
And what goes with what? Have all motherboards access to these or do you have to watch this?

And what about DDR and DDR2? Do you need special slots for the DDR2? Can you switch from one to another, can you combine?

And how do you know how much Watt you need to empower your computer? Is this standard? Why the options?

Motherboards? Why so many? there is amd and intel... but hundreds of choices. What are the differences?

:tazz:

thx a lot

You might try to use Google, or whatever search engine you like, to find your answers. I found one site (Build Your Own Computer) which has photos. There's a whole bunch more.

Try Computer Dictionary and plug in the words you want explained.

Thanks for the links, but why use google if there are excellent sites like this where people can explain all these terms in a human laguage? I tried a lot of these sites you mentioned and it's not always that easy to understand what someone is talking about...


Thx anyway
