for those of you who are truly geeky or macho, and want to build your PC from scratch yourselves, one site that gives such information is:http://pcmech.com
(for newbies, DIY = Do-it-yourself )
They have a daily newsletter which also includes a lot of news, reviews, opinions and hidden windows tips, tweaks and tricks.
I've been a subscriber (free) for more than two years now and although i simply cannot read the mail everyday, every fortnight or so, i sit down and dig into the pile... if only to clear it
Inevitably some really useful tip about Windows comes along that makes you feel good that you subscribed to the newsletter.Disclaimer
: Although I've corresponded with the author before and we know each other (roughly), I do not gain anything from him or his site or the other way round - except that his site may get "DCoded"(TM) after this post
Definitely worth looking at.
