well first of all in not computer illiterate actually i know alot about software and general troubleshooting.
but i ve been out of the whole computer thing for coupla years and last computer i built was about 2 years ago.
and im askin if any of u guys can break it down barney style for me whats the difference in socket types and which one is more promising as far as future upgrades or speed (lets say we take P4 3.00ghz of different socket type)
and also the the mobo chip difference
i tried to read intel’s page and some other pages but its confusing as faq and got me even more lost.
also should i exactly match the ram,fsb and whatever else frequency?
