Okay.. Still looking for some guide.

Something along these lines...

How much of what to get in your new comptuer:-Gaming rig, or multitasking? AMD gaming, or Intel multitasking? Budget computer?
-Ati vs nVidea? How much gaming will the person do? Should it be Sli'd or CF'd? Are two lower budget cards, better then one top of the line?
-Sound card, need?


Things of that nature.

Also, common things in Windows. Like how to get to device manager. What virtual memory is. What dual core is. Ect.. catch my drift?



Linux Guide: A how to install, and operate


Computer accessories:
Speakers (2.1, 4., 5.1, 6.1, 7.1 [wattage])
Mice (wireless, laster, optical)
Keyboards (PS/2, USB, bluetooth)
Moniters (LCD vs CRT, different sizes)
