Alright lets say I am new to computer just got my first one
I did use my dad's and he knew everything about it
I however am a complete noob....so please treat me as such
so by specs you mean....
processor, processor clock if overclocked, motherboard, ram type(ex. ddr3 1600mhz), amount of ram, video card chipset & amount of video ram, cpu cooler, hard drives, any extra fans, and the case itself.
we can find most of this by pc model if it's manufactured, but you can find a lot of this info by typing msinfo32 in "run" or "search all programs and files" in the start menu if you use windows, which most people use.
