Default pC Gamer's 2007 PC Building Bible

I bought this mag off the Indigo/Chapters newsstand last night..

and I HIGHLY recomment this issue to anyone looking forward to a little "schooling" before buying the components for their gaming rigs.

Answers alot of Questions concerning:

CPUs
Videocards
Motherboards
DirectX 10

and valuable tips and information for enthusiasts at all levels for buying RAM modules as well.

in Canada it costs about $15.50 after taxes (Canadian Dollars)

just wanted to share this with y'all...

:happy:

Default Re: pC Gamer's 2007 PC Building Bible

for the RAM, it educates on

The significance of the numbers listed after the model number for a module(such as 3-4-4-8 , as in what it really means)

How you can change these values

The performance difference between generic, branded and premium RAM

IF one needs ECC ram if he/she doesnt have an ECC mobo

What speed, size or timing do beginners have to check out befre buying a RAM module.

etc.. etc..
