Thresh's Firingsquad heeft weer een retegoed artikel over upgrading in elkaar gezet. Teveel info om er iets zinnigs uit te citeren, dus hier de intro:
Computer parts nowadays are getting better and cheaper by the minute. It's no wonder more and more people are considering taking the plunge and upgrading their systems, with little to no prior knowledge of how to do so. Thankfully, the Internet is abound with websites dealing with hardware, and one doesn't need to travel far to find what he's looking for.
By the same token, you'll find yourself neck-deep in reviews before you know it, on the latest 3D video cards, 64-bit PCI sound cards, and fancy new CPUs. While that's great in terms of knowing what hardware is currently the best on the market, it may not be helpful in your quest to upgrade your system. In fact, it may be somewhat detrimental to most "newbies," as they assume (incorrectly) that a system is mainly comprised of a video card, sound card, and a CPU. So how does it all fit together?
That's what we're going to go lay out for you in this guide.
