We have updated our site to a new content manager. Links to our articles will now take you to the new site, until we finish phasing things over.
There is a large amount of inaccurate, incomplete, and confusing collections of random information available on the web, but no site seems to have a concise collection of detailed and accurate hardcore specs. We decided to change that.
At first, we were just collecting information for ourselves, as we found ourselves referencing it repeatedly in the course of posting in the PCGuide.com forums and helping people at our college. Eventually, it occurred to us that others may find this information useful, so here it is.
Our site is divided into two main categories: Hardware Specs and Articles.
The Hardware Specs section covers:
The Articles section contains Articles, How-tos, Explanations, FAQs, and a glossary to help explain what all those confusing terms mean.
Articles are based on analysis of current technologies and trends within technology, and may contain evaluations, as well as speculations.
How-Tos describe how to use those analyses. Examples: How to choose parts for a new computer (Note: in a general sense-These will help you learn how to do something, not necessarily walk you through your current problem).
Explanations tend to get technical in nature and explain how one technology relates to another-for example, describing how the timings on your RAM work, and what each timing does. In this example, knowing this would be useful in determining how to best overclock your system.
FAQs will be for now based on questions we think people should be asking, as well as questions we have seen asked on forums we frequent.
The Glossary will contain a list of brief definitions.
We are hoping to develop in these ways:
