I am at a learning stage with computer parts,one main problem I am having is identifying various parts,for example,I have seen at least 5 motherboards and have yet to be able to find the name or part number on any of them,also the type of pc it is (P2,,P3,,MGHTZ ETC,(unless windows can be accessed and then use system info).In my opinion,the PC info should be on all cases and a standard location for all other components for part numbers,is there a web site somewhere that I could see how to get information such as all the above?

CPUZ should be able to come up with at least a number or CPU on it. If the motherboard is in a working PC, at least. Otherwise identify the chipset used on the motherboard and then look it up. Ali, SiS, nVidia, VIA, AMD and Intel all have their chipsets laid out on the websites. If you can't find it immediately, there's always Google.

I find the best way is to look for an FCC ID# on the board. Most boards, even the generic ones from Asia, tend to have one, if you look hard enough at the board.

Then go here to look it up:
