Question
I have CPU Z Free and it works good but is there another Free program that can give a more indepth Infor about the PC?

Answer
Yes, depending on what you want or need to find out about. For reading information about your graphics card there is the similar GPU-Z (http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/), for more broad information about the system (including some benchmarking features) there is the larger PC Wizard application: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/pc-wizard.html (the large green banner at the top of the page is an advertisement; the correct download link is on the right-hand side).

Alternately, if you can't install or run applications from within the operating system, there are bootable system information applications available as part of the Ultimate Boot CD: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ (most of them are listed on the page under "/System").

Expertise

I have nearly two decades of experience in IT, computer repair, and related fields and will attempt to provide the most solid, brand-agnostic advice when it comes time to purchase a new computer, or upgrade an existing machine. I can answer anything from the seemingly basic to the downright complicated - and will do my best to provide this information in a clear and concise manner.

Experience

I have been an enthusiast of PC's for many years, and can answer questions about the purchase/use of a new computer or the purchase, installation, and use of upgrades for existing computers. There probably isn't a whole lot related to the home computer that I haven't seen over the years.
