You might think that increasing your network speed with a simple switch of a router is a great thing, but what if that new router is wireless?  Join in on the discussion as to how exactly a wireless connection could end up faster than the wired connection it replaced.  The router switch is fairly easy, especially compared to a CPU switch and the confusion of sockets.  Still confused as to whether that AM3 chip run in an AM2 board or vice versa?  This thread will set you straight.  Of course, once you move into graphics cards it can get even more convoluted.  Not only are there existing cards, with a jump in performance for every $20 but we’ve just seen new ones come out.  Once you’ve decided on a particular card, then you get to try to chose which brand you should go with.  The lads in the Graphics Forum will be more than happy to help you out.
