Stupid question- my AMD 3000 Mhz processor is 3 Ghz right?
I mean, there are a thousand mhz in one Gig, so three times 1000 is 3Gig, right?

If you mean AMD Athlon 3000+ then no ... it runs at 1.8G
CPU-Z will tell you more then you ever want to know about your CPU.

Been that way for some time, this link will illustrate part of what I mean, http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...;product=442914
