This guide is written a little more towards the budding computer buff than the expert or the complete beginner, but there should be something for everybody.
Why would you want to read this guide? There might be a few different reasons. You might be a budding computer buff, wanting to pad out your knowledge about all things hardware so that you can be the go-to guide for all your friends and family. You might be a hardware expert on your coffee break, taking a flick through to see if you find something particularly interesting. On the other hand, you might be a complete beginner when it comes to computers.
This guide will break the computer down into its different components focusing on the Chassis, Power Supply and Motherboard. It will describe each component and function, explain the different specifications to look out for and provide a bit of history, too. Stay tuned to learn about the rest of the computer in part two which will focus on the CPU, RAM, Storage, Video Card and Expansions.
