Well first of all , you have to put some real effort into learning the information.For starters , if the guides here aren't helping , try www.google.com and search for " hardware tutorials " or " overclocking " or " what are jumpers " or..you get my drift.Once you get the basic knowledge ( its not really complicated ) , then ask around here , for more specific information on a certain peice of hardware.BTW , jumpers are magical tiny rods on a motherboard with regulate functions , it all depends on the settings you apply , Like jumpers on the back of a hard drive .

Actually the thing is that i opened my cabinet and then closed it as i was terrified on seeing the chipsets and now i'm determined to go into embeded systems designs. :-) anyway, we can add some mjore links for beginners like me !

lol , you sound like my uncle , who until recently thought that the internet was evil and would take all his money! Ofcourse now he's a regular on Ebay .. well more of an addict.

Anyway , I found this site that explains the basics of every part of a computer , including the all important mobo.
