Designing a video card or motherboard is about as complex as designing a space craft.

A stick of RAM has about 2 billion bits, and each bit has multiple components...

"We cannot prove that those are in error who tell us that society has reached a turning point; that we have seen our best days. But so said all before us, and with just as much apparent reason. On what principle is it that, when we see nothing but improvement behind us, we are to expect nothing but deterioration before us?"

Ain't it? Even little ol' me has heard of circuit design software that allows you to input desired behavior and southbridge/northbridge chipsets and have the software kick out your layer masks.

I could probably manage it without CAD training...

Remember, QC stands for quality control everywhere but here. dry.gif

How do computers work? Well one important aspect of this is that any sentence in human language can be represented in binary code. I found an excellent, brief account of this in the well known book "The Enigma of Intelligence."
