Computer System FAQs
No, we don't install any trial versions or other software on the systems. If you order a computer with the operating system installed we load the operating system, the motherboard drivers and run Windows update and nothing else. If you order the system without an OS we ship it to you with the hard drive clean and ready to load your OS.
ISA slots are the oldest of these 3 slots types and are no longer available from major PC manufacturers. In fact, if you purchased a computer after 1999, it probably doesn't have ISA slots. Computers are still available today with Industrial motherboards that have ISA slots, we sell these ISA slot systems, for more information, click here. PCI is newer than ISA slots, and are still available on computers from the major PC makers, though they are disappearing. We also sell computers with multiple PCI slots, for more information on the these systems click here. PCI cards will only work in PCI slots and ISA cards only work in ISA slots. Click here for a picture showing the difference between ISA and PCI slots. PCIe or PCI Express (not to be confused with PCI-X) is the latest PC bus architecture. PCIe is the replacement for both PCI and AGP slots. PCIe is not backwards compatible, PCI cards will not work in the PCIe slots and PCIe cards will not work in PCI slots. Click here for a picture showing the different PCI-e slot types.
