Default Combine two parts

If I have two different computers, can I combine their parts together to make the ultimate computer?

Ex. if I have 1 GB ram and another 2GB one, can I make 3GB ram?

Possibly, depends on whether there are any free slots on the target motherboard and what type of RAM it takes.

CPU-Z will reveal all. You might have to check the motherboard manual to find out how much RAM it takes but you should be able to get the motherboard model from CPU-Z and from there it should only take an Internet search.

Ok what about processors? Or two different graphics cards?

I know, I sound like an idiot cause it probably would never work, but it doesn't hurt to check

Solder them together and make an uBer SERVER BOARD!!!! OMGOHEZNOEZ!

It really depends on the make and models of both of the boards and what hardware is compatible with either one.

If you give us some specs of the PC's we can help you figure out what's compatible with what

CPU-Z Readme file
------------------

Version 1.53
December 2009
Contact : cpuz@cpuid.com
Web page: CPUID
Validation page : CPU-Z Validator 3.00
Hall of Fame : CPU-Z Highest Records ! (V1.01)
Forum : CPU-Z Official forum - Canardpc.com
CPUID SDK : CPUID Developers Corner


Configuration file (cpuz.ini)
------------------------------

The configuration file must be named cpuz.ini and be present at the same directory level
as cpuz.exe. It contains the following :

[CPU-Z]
TextFontName=Verdana
TextFontSize=13
TextFontColor=000060
LabelFontName=Verdana
LabelFontSize=13
PCI=1
MaxPCIBus=256
DMI=1
Sensor=1
SMBus=1
Display=1
ShowDutyCycles=0

- TextFontName : Font used for the information boxes.
- TextFontSize : Size of the font used for the information boxes.
- TextFontColor : Color of the font used for the information boxes. Value is expressed in hexadecimal, and consists in a classic Red/Green/Blue color code : RRGGBB
- LabelFontName : Font used for the label boxes.
- LabelFontSize : Size of the font used for the label boxes.
- Sensor : Set to OFF (or 0) disables sensor chip detection and voltages measurement. 1 to enable.
- PCI : Set to OFF (or 0) disables the PCI information. This disables chipset, SPD and, depending on the hardware, sensoring information. 1 to enable.
- MaxPCIBus : Sets the maximum PCI bus to scan. Default value is 256.
- DMI : Set to OFF (or 0) disables the DMI (Desktop Management Interface) information. This concerns BIOS vendor and version, motherboard vendor and revision. 1 to enable.
- SMBus : Set to OFF (or 0) disables SMBus information : SPD, and, depending on the hardware, sensoring information. 1 to enable.
- Display : Set to OFF (or 0) disables the video card information reported in the validator. 1 to enable.
- ShowDutyCycles : Set to 1, switches the alternate clock computation method based on duty cycles. 0 to disable.

Parameters
----------

-txt=filename : Launch CPU-Z in ghost mode (no interface appears) and generates the register dump file (.txt)
in the same directory as the exe file.

-html=filename : Same as "-txt" except it generates the html report.

-core=id : Displays clock speed of core #id (id can be set from 0 to Number of cores minus one).


Keys
----

F5 : save the current tab in a bmp file
F6 : save the current tab in the clipboard
F7 : save cvf file in the current directory
