Hardware for PCs is Ram, CPU, Motherboards, Cd/DVD/Cdrw roms, harddrives, videocards, pretty much everything that is in a computer is considered hardware.

hardware is the parts of your computer and software is what is installed on your hard drive

This is like...the kind of thread you'd get if a n00b and a spammer had sex...

It boggles the mind...

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
