Good stuff, although personally I find Lian Li worth the aluminum per kilogram it's made of and nothing more.

But Rosie, it IS written in English! Here, let me see if I can put this in a way you'll understand. A PC is a lot like the human body.

Case: The skin and bones of the body. The case is a box that holds, supports and protects all of the computer's components.

Mobo (Motherboard): The muscular system. Holds and consolidates and connects most of the other components, facilitates their functioning, and serves various other miscellaneous functions. (Not a perfect analogy.)

PSU (Power Suppy Unit): The body's digestive and circulatory system. Obtains energy and provides it to other computer components.

CPU (Central Processing Unit): The human brain. Simple as that. It does calculations; that's all you need to know.

GPU (Graphics Processing Unit): The human eye. Interprets graphical data and displays it visually on the computer monitor.

HDD/SSD (Hard Disk Drive/Solid State Drive): Long-term memory. Lots of information is stored here indefinitely and can be retrieved.

RAM (Random-Access Memory): Short-term memory. Not 100% comparable to short-term memory, but it's volatile and only stores information temporarily.

I just picked up a asus 5770 for cheap, downloaded mafia II from piratebay and fired it up on full graphical settings. My mind was blown. I dont own or play consoles since the nintendo 64 era and my last card was a nvidia geforce something that struggled playing vice city. My system was/are always powerful enough, dual core, max ram, but i never take much notice of the graphics department.

Wow is all I can say while playing now.

waiting for starcraft 2 to finish in utorrent now :)
