What do all the specs on the hardware in my computer mean?

by on September 6, 2011

Q: Hey, I’m new to computer building but with some help I was able to build my first computer.

The specs are:

Graphics: Geforce GTX560 OC 1GB DDR5 850/4010MHz

PSU: Antec HCP-750 High Current Pro 750 W PSU

Mobo: Intel DP67BG ATX LGA1155 DDR3-1333

CPU: Intel Core I7 2600K 3.4GHZ 8MB LGA1155

RAM: KINGSTON 4GB Kit 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM XM

I understand some of the basics but most of that is still gibberish to me. Would you be able to give me a run down of what it all means?

    That’s a really nice setup. Could you be a little more specific about what you want to know?

    If you haven’t tried yet, http://www.anandtech.com/ always has nice articles on gaming related pc tech. http://en.wikipedia.org is also really good for checking up on a specific technical term you aren’t familiar with. Such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155
