All PCs are NOT created equal.

       The first thing that we are going to discuss is understanding your machines compatibilities.  Before you customize, upgrade or replace any parts of your machine, you must first research your machines specs.  All machines have varying degrees of differences in there motherboards, and even thier RAM.   You must pick a mother board carefully, according to wether or not you will want or need to expand on it later. You must also bear in mind that some motherboards have no built in video, audio, or internet connections, and will therefore purchase and equip them yourself, according to your own preferences.

    As you can see, motherboards are quite different from one another as is RAM shown below.
 So you must research and understand what it is that you are looking for, for your machine.Not all RAMs work in all mother boards.  RAMs range from DIMM, DDR, SDIMM, SODIMM, DDR2, and DDR3.  The same goes for HDDs and CPUs. older motherboards are limited to the slower and older CPUs, while the newer ones use a varying degree of the higher end processors. HDDs vary between IDE, SATA, SATA1, SATA2, and more recently, SATA3.  The difference is the speeds in which info is passed from the HDD to the CPU, the latter being the fastest, and more expensive.


  1. what do all these acronyms mean?
