Ranting in Binary for the last 20 years
I've got to know the answer to this question.

Why do people upgrade their computers and not know what is in it later? How the hell can you spend money on something and not know what is in it? (No Brad, I'm not talking about you.) Seriously, it makes me wonder how people even use computers. This isn't something just recent either! How in the hell can you have a computer and not know how fast it is? YOU SEE IT EVERYTIME YOU TURN IT ON! I'm not asking people to know if they have DDR ram or anything. I'm not asking people to remember what they have their CAS Latency set to, I'm asking them "HOW FAST, IS YOUR COMPUTER'S CPU!?" This is a piece of integral information people, if you don't know SHIT about your computer. You should take the time to get to know the basics!

The Basics:
Amount of RAM in the system
CPU speed
CPU make
Hard drive size
Operating system type
Is there virus protection
Is there a firewall

The Extra Helpfuls:
Speed of RAM in the system
CPU type/model
Hard drive medium IDE/SATA
Operating system version
What virus protection and is it updated
What firewall and is it updated

The Even Betters:
Warranty for PC
When you got it

Seriously people, it's time to stop acting like you are 3 years old. Come into the light that is reality and take responsibility for your material items. Why buy a tool if you don't know at least a little something about it? I wouldn't buy a hammer without knowing it'd get the job done. Why you might ask? Simply because I'm not spending 10 dollars on something that doesn't DO, what I need it to DO!

I read a review of my video card on the website I purchased it from back when I bought it. The review basically stated this...

In reference to a Geforce 6 6600GT AGP 8X card.
"Pros:Looks cool and all.
Cons:I bought it and it won't work, because I have a PCI Express motherboard.
Other:I should probably die of AIDS!"

The assbag spent 250 dollars on a video card, that was the wrong CONFIGURATION FOR HIS COMPUTER. Not only because he is an idiot, but because he thinks everything is just going to work like the American way. "Well hell I'll just stick this video card in the hole and it will work!" No, wrong, GET ON THE INTERNET AND READ SOMETHING ASSHOLE. I'm not going to tell you what, figure that out for yourself! Also, if you don't know how to use google, I give up on you and so should everyone else. You've gone past a line on the chart of humanity that was clear at the bottom. You're like the 392,095th line of a spreadsheet. There isn't a printer in the world that can print to you, like there isn't a person in the world that could help you.

Now let these things soak, consider where you are and if need be do what needs to be done.

One last thing, if you people don't start updating your anti-virus software then just sell your computer and get a brother word processor.
