    Ok this ain't a what-to-buy question. Rather it is an info question.Well actually two questions.

    One, when does the forum recognize me as a "member" and not a newbie? Is it based on time or how many replies I have submitted? Also can I customize my status?

    Two, I want to be a computer wiz like some of you other guys, but how do I go about it. I already know how to put together systems and crap, but what about the real in-depth stuff. Your advice would be so helpful cuz I feel like a real dumbo sometimes.:hammer: Or maybe that is from this:

    Chaos Chaos Chaos.......ok I am not a computer

    To my knowledge after 100posts your status is member. As for pc knowledge, I learned alot just by reading online and Scott Muellers Building and Repairing PC's 11th edition. It gave me alot on the older P3 generation and all the way back to the original 8088's and 8086's

    1- After you have posted 100 replies you will become a TweakTown Member. And no, you don't have the option to customize your title. However, if some of the moderators get togaether and want to reward someone with a customized title, it can be arranged.

    2- All it takes is research and experience. Though I don't consider myself a guru or anything, I have been building and tweaking systems for several years now. That's all I do... share what I have seen while working on my own systems.

    3- Moving this thread to the Beer Garden where I think it will be better received.

    I'm much like Darth in this area and almost 6yrs of building, modding, updating and the last few yrs repairing PC's have givin' me a lot of insight which I pass on where I can. ;)

    Chaos ya can do a search on ya self by posts which will reveal the number that ya have (52 atm) and also a good read of this site, http://www.pcguide.com/topic.html, will give ya a fair idea of what goes on inside ya PC though some sections are a little dated but Charles does try to keep up as best he can with updates (but it's a big job).

    Another thing. You can read until your eyes pop out of your head, but you still won't take a lot of it in. Best way to learn stuff is do it, which is easier said that done.
