MOTHERBOARDS

Postby tfab25 » Sat Jul 12, 2008 5:15 am

I THOUGHT I HAD PICKED UP PRITTY QUICKLY HOW TO PUT TOGETHER A PC, All i need to do is connect the psu,cpu,hard drives,optical drives etc etc.
I was really happy with myself that i had learned all this in a few days.....that was until i tried to order myself a motherboard. Then i had to know which cpu accomodated which socket, cpu type,cpu count,memory type,chipset,agp,sata yadda yadda. I felt like bursting into tears.

As ordering the wrong componenent has a knock on effect on all the other components it gave me a slight nervous breakdown and i realised ordering a new motherboard for myself is to advanced for me.I REALLY wanna learn everything about the motherboard and make myself confident,is there any guidlines or places to go.I just dont see how all the components of the motherboard link up and compliment eachother,thats my problem.

Ive read every tutorial available,should i just keep reading.
This motherboard carry on has brought me back down to earth with a bump.i know nothing about computers.

Thank you so much.

Question 1: What is the system going to be used for?
Question 2: What is your budget?
Question 3: What kind of system have you been using up to now?

Well,thats the thing evasive. It was all hypotheticall,Yes i am wanting to overhaul my exsisting computer but maybe not for a while. I am wanting to learn about computers ,CAREER CHANGE.And so was wanting to know the ins and outs so to speak.Maybe in futur to repair and build pc's from scratch.I am making some progress,but very slow and stressful progress.
I would be mostly using my computer for video editing,My budget would be roughly £600. My system up to now has just been a refurbished pice of junk from pc world,quite old.

If you want to learn all about computers for a career change I think it's best to think over what exactly you want to do. There's many many different jobs in this field. There are many different courses you can follow.

Here's an example:
http://www.ptr.co.uk/comptia-accelerated-a+-course.html
that is 1475 quid ex VAT.

The other way could be to keep on reading about the stuff indeed. Have you been to the tech-planations section here yet?
http://www.motherboards.org/articles/te ... tions.html
There's a few articles about basic motherboards and some specific about slots and stuff.
