I would like to know what makes the computer run fast. do all 3 need to be kinda close with each other to get 100% out of it or more of one or the other?
if i get it, ram makes it so you can run many tabs or programs at once. so if I have a 6Gb ram i should be able to have like 6 firefox tabs open, along with running my word program my xplit broadcaster and not have issues correct or am i wrong?
also the processor and if it is single dual, quad. what does this mean? you would think the larger be best but is this true?
I have now a pentuim 4 2.8ghz with 2.99 GB ram 40gb Sata HD it works okay for the basic internet but if i try to open multiple programs it lags bad. I am trying to run a broadcast and it just doesnt want to do it. been looking at PC's everywhere and i see lots of dual core but there like 1.4ghz or 1.8. I already have this 2.8 so wouldnt I be going backwards? or since it is a dual core it would be faster then my single.I have 2.99 gb ram most of them have 4gb or more.
if anyone can let me know if i am thinking right or not it be great.
someone pointed me to this site http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php and it seems pretty cool.
