There are countless sites that review hardware like TomsHardware.Com and then there are more than enough sites for buying hardware like NewEgg.com

Those are the two that I would suggest. Tom's hardware can be a bit technical, but is a good site for hardware information and benchmark comparisons.

NewEgg has excellent prices, links to review sites for products, customer rating and reviews for products, and links to the official site of manufacturer. Also quick delivery and low cost if not free shipping.

For abbreviations and such, try something like About.com and do a search in the technology subsection

NewEgg has that information. The reviews explain usually what the user used together and if you look at various specs you can find socket type for a CPU and check mobos for same socket type or search by only that socket type. They also tell what CPU is supported in the mobo specs and to what speed. Same thing with everything else, just check your mobo specs and go from there.

Well,

I live in Ireland and thought about building my own pc with parts from the us(newegg and tigerdirect I think!), as they are much cheaper.
Would the only part I need to buy here be the power supply, could the rest be bought from newegg with out problems for the computer?

Also, I know the 64 bit AMD is very powerfull, but I was wondering, wouldn't the operating system have to programmed to be able to use it power(like HT technology)?
As far as I know Windows had plans to make they OS 64bit compatible, but they were scrapped. Is this correct?

Cheers,

Daghda, Yes you only need to buy the power supply unit from Ireland and the rest of your system can be purchased from the US. There is Windows 64-bit you could use and it has not been "scapped".

In my opinion tiger direct has better prices and deals than newegg, but newegg has the latest bleeding edge hardware.

I hate Tiger Direct; they have great prices but shipping is a bitch...

Myself I just drive out to Fry's Electronics (the company who back's Outpost.com)...
