Finally i enter the desktop pc world.
Never done this before.
I got two desktop pc's from job for the first time in my life. They are exactly the same. I have only used laptops. Never done moding.
So what to do?
Basically combine both of them to make one pc which does max performance. It will be used for the family to watch movies, web tv, surf and download. and not use my laptop. Uber dream is that it is not as bloody noisy as it is.
They both have basically the same specs
one has 3.2ghz processor the other 2.8ghz
the 3.2ghz has only cd burner
the 2.8ghz has cd burner + dvd player
Ram - put the 2ghz ram from one to the other machine making it 4ghz - according to my knowledge this requires no software. automatic or not?
Hardrive - Add the the second harddrive - this requires knowledge according to the web, you can not simply put it in and voila extra space.
DVD - The main machine has only a cd burner. The other has a dvd player. Can i just plug it in or?
or make a dual processor thing?
Fan Noise - ffs sake this thing makes more noise than a vacuum cleaner.even in tranquile mode. Presently formatting one of them will tweak it and give temperatures after wards.
