Overview

Ian Sinclair's Build Your Own books have established themselves as authoritative and highly practical guides for home PC users and advanced hobbyists alike. All aspects of building and upgrading a PC are covered, making this the book that computer retailers don't want you to read! By getting to grips with the world of PC hardware you can avoid the built-in obsolescence that seems to be part and parcel of the fast moving world of PCs, and escape the need to buy a new PC every year. You can also have a PC that keeps pace with the ever increasing demands that new software applications place on your system.

The new edition of this book is based on building and upgrading to Pentium MMX and Pentium 2 systems running Windows 95 and 98, as well as guiding you through the inside of your CPU. Coverage includes monitors, printers, super-floppies, tape streamers and parallel port accessories.
