#1

hello,all members share their very best computer related websites which will help any one out in becoming a TRUE COMPUTER GEEK while staying at home..

Take my example..I have recently been into this computer stuff and I got very much intersted in SOFTWARE and HARDWARE related things and other computer expertise(internet,virus removal etc)..

I have vacations so I want to get into more computer because I think I have become addicted to computer and internet..

So you all members share the informative computer websites which will enable me to become a COMPUTER GEEK....????

I have done no prior computer course.However I have learned C language in my engineering course!!!!:|

another good site is extremetech.com


#11

well if u wana know ins and outs of computer hardware then www.hardwaresecrets.comis a very gud 1


#12

I also recommend http://www.sizlopedia.com/ which is a very successful site owned by a fellow Pakistani. I also suggest tomshardware.com for learning about latest hardware news. Its an alternative to anandtech.

EDIT: I'd also like to mention howstuffworks.com for learning about the basics of computers. It will really help you make sense of the long-winded anandtech CPU reviews if you understand terms like "out of order processing".
