I plan on having a friend or two help me out with this, since I don't want
to mess something up and ruin something that might be expensive.  However, I
would also like to become fairly knowledgable about this area.  I'm majoring
in Computer Science and Engineering, and right now I'm very strong in the
software area, but not very strong in the hardware area.  I've taken
Circuits, Electronics, Digital Logic, Assembly Language, Computer
Organization, etc., so I understand how computers work at their most
fundamental level, but I think it would also be good for me to know how
computers work at their highest level (IE building them, understanding the
different components, brands, options, etc.)

Sorry to start this debate.  Everyone here just seems to be knowledgable
about everything related to computers, and while I resorted to Google at
first, none of the numerous results I read answered my questions.
