Build And Upgrade Your Own PcBy
- Ian Sinclair
PC users seeking guidance on the hardware side of their system: upgrading, hardware troubleshooting, and even construction of a full system. Some technical awareness is assumed, making this title the ideal choice for anyone with a technical background, but step-by-step guidance means it is well suited to readers with no educational background in the field. Also suitable for hardware-based vocational education and training courses.
