PC makeover shop?

  bananaz 01:13 09 Aug 2006

Hi, is there such a site that can scan your PC online for you & tell you exactly what components are inside the machine? & maybe even help with suitable compatable upgrades? I have an old PC that i am playing with & thought i would try & recycle it, as a way of learning a bit more on how they are built & what hardware goes with what etc. I really want to have a bash at building one at some point, but thought i would start with this project as a stepping stone. If someone could point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
