My book is about making hardware upgrades on desktop computers easily using common sense methods. I put the directions in the simplest as possible terms. If you have every thought of making upgrades on your computer but were afraid to try. Then this is the book for you. It gives you step my step directions in plan laymen terms. My book puts things in the simplest terms possible with tried and tested methods. And the methods in this book are the ones I used and you can use them also. So why pay someone $20+ an hour to upgrade your computer when you can do it yourself.
