I have limited computer knowledge, and i want to improve this by purchasing a computer second hand, and up grading it. I have however limited knowledge of the internal workings of a computer and am not sure what to look for.
My basic plan is to buy one on ebay, and upgrade the hhd ram etc slowly, as cash is a limiting factor.
My idea is to get one with windows 7 as opertaing systems seem to be costly to buy outside of a computer bundle, and a decent processor. (last time i had an interest in computers was 10 years ago, when processors were none dual core etc and their comparrison was simple from just the speed, now its not so easy so any direction here would be useful to thanks).
Leaving inital upgrades as above, however i find my self asking these imidiate questions,
what is the limiting factor of how many hhd can be fitted, I can only forsee needing 2 for starters. can i assume this is automatically acheivable?
what is IEEE?
I know SATA is a type of HHD but what does all this mean "1.6 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (SATAII0, SATAII1, SATAII2, SATAII3, SATAII4, SATAII5) supporting up to 6 SATA 3Gb/s devices "
many thanks for your help in advance.
