Are you a computer wiz?

Computers are one of the most complicated machines on the market. ALU's, CPU's, PCI, BIOS, all that junk each has its own use. Believe it or not, your computer is almost as complicated as your body. Some of the things that are used in computers make many mathematitions and scientists shrivel in confusion

This is a simple quiz i threw together one random night to see if you are a computer wiz like myself. If not then who cares, if so then w00t on that. Just remember that with the way our technology is advancing, this quiz might be outdated in a couple of years ^^
