@ Kel...I like to tweak the system. Laptops are harder to tweak because of limitations, but with desktops thats another story. Most of the hardware that goes into a desktop can be overclocked to a point or at least be able to perform a little better then the default setting set down by the hardware company. There is always room to grow in a PC.
Well I agree with you on the laptop business. As for desktops, I suppose I agree, yeah there is room for growth, but I'm not good with or confident with hardware (my college diploma was in software/programming) so I haven't bothered to tinker with my PC beyond upgrading its memory a couple times and adding a newer custom sound card that could handle a newer headset with headphones and built in mic (that's the set I broke recently, hence no ts appearances from me).
I've been around hardware since the 286s came out in the 80s. My problem is at times not knowing my limits when it comes to increasing voltage, or memory . Troubleshooting on the other hand, I lose sleep over because I can't turn my brain off trying to figure why a piece of software or hardware doesn't work as it should. Especially when it comes to Windows not installing or hardware conflicts.
