Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you just multiply 4 times 8 times 3. So with 1 CPU and changing the hradrives, you can make 8 computers, with 2: 16. just multiply ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry for my english, im from Spain so.. alright, look, imagina that you have 2 types of vannilla and 3 of chocolate. and you wanna make a mix ice cream. first you grab one type of vanilla, and you have to add the 3 types of chocolate. That means you get 3 cups full of the same type of vanilla, and on those cups, you put a different type of chocolate. so now u have 3, then you do the same with the other type of vanilla, and have 3 more. 3+3=6 / 2 x 3=6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you mean to say that with 1 CPU and the hardrives you will have 8 computers and with 2 and the hardrives you would have 16 then with 3 and the hardrives u have 24 then with 4 and the hardrives you have 32 ? Because I understood that but then does that mean you add the video games later like so let say with 1 video game you have 32 computers then with 2 video games you would have 64 and finally with 3 video games you would have 96 computers ? Is that what your trying to say ?
