Hi i was searching in the internet a software that make my life easier.
Sometimes people ask me for advice to buy a good computer, but is an annoying job to search the specifications of bus speed, memory speed, processor speed, vga speed, etc...and etc..... of differents components and brands to combine them in 1 computer and avoid bottlenecks.
 
That's the question, is there any software with some kind of algorithm wizard that help me build a pc, for ex. if you want a Pentium4 the wizard discards the motherboards compatible with celeron and show me the most optimum motherboards for that processor, including speeds, this is simlply for avoid bottlenecks.

Obviously this software must be updateable, for introduce new cpu, mothers, memory.... models

Anyone know if it's there a closer solution?

Thank you

ok, that's a start, but i need something a little more technical, something more free, for ex: like let me decide processor, and from there show me the alternates motherboards compatible with that cpu, and so on with the other components

I agree with Christophermagee must do research:
http://www.anandtech.com/
http://www.tomshardware.com/
http://www.newegg.com/        example: If you see a processor on newegg it tells what motherboard and memory are compatible with that processor, make life easy

I just put together the following box from researching different websites, the internet is the only bottle neck with cable internet connection.

i meant, if you choose a pc, look at the specs it points you to, then you have an idea of what you are looking for.

i have assumed that a kind of software were in the market, i think that a tool like that would be indispensable for hardware enthusiast, rare that no one exploit it, or i'm the only crazy guy spending time calculating the extacts compatibilities and speeds.

ok- maybe i did not find your solution - because it does not exist.
I suppose the reason is that hardware changes every month in many aspects, so if you find one (general) it must be updated at least weekly.
As i said, if you use the help me choose wizard from hp, and look at the specs of the hardware components, you can buy them from different suppliers.  That is the closest aswer to your problem i know.
