Hi Fred,

Most people are actually quite good, be they in stores or at markets.

The only thing I'd watch is some of the "budget" mobos that can carry
non-standard badge engineered hardware. Getting some of the cheap and
nasty integrated features working properly can be a chore. For example,
I inherited a mobo that had a built in modem that was pretty much usless
and I had to peel labels off chips to figure out what the NIC was.

Subject: [clug] building computer

I want to build a new computer  and am wondering where to buy the parts.  
Are there any companies in Canberra which have a good reputation, or would you get the lot from a computer fair.
  Does a computer fair still happen at the exhibition centre or has it changed to be only at the university amenities hall?
  As I am not into graphics cards, what is the difference between a nvidia 6200 and a nvidia 6600 card, the specs on the cards list the 6200 as having a faster gpu than the 6600, but lesser performance.
