Default Re: Noobie Q!

The contents of a barebones PC varies greatly from package to package. Typically, every barebones system includes at least a case, power supply, and motherboard. Some systems add to this some combination of a floppy disk drive, video card, CD-ROM drive, mouse, keyboard, sound card, and speakers. A processor, system memory and hard disk drive are typically not included. As you can see, the exact contents can range from just the beginnings of a system to most of a complete machine, so you must ask specifically what is included in any "barebones" systems you may be considering.
