Default Enq from a computer nerd

Hi All

1) May I ask what is the use for PCI slots?
2) What is the meaning if a RAM stated 256MB NATA or SDRAM
3) A AGP slot is not required if I don't want to view video or don't have a video card?

PCI slots are to upgrade your comp. or add new devices. Soundcards, low end video cards, capture cards, networking cards, etc...

Random Access Memory. I'm not sure what NATA is, but SD RAM is just a type of RAM.

AGP is not required for video as you can use PCI, but you MUST have some form of video. Many computers today have onboard video(which is AGP) I guess you could run a computer without a video card, but I'm not sure what you would do with it ;P
