Could some one explain what the heck Giga and Mhz's are for? I think on Ghz is 1000mhz or something, but what are they for? Does it make much difference if computer has 3.2ghz or 2.6?

And could some one explain like you would to a four year old everything there is to know about computers? :p

yes 1000 mhz is 1ghz

its Mega Hertz gigahertz

and yeah it makes a differences but really its best to get the cheaper one right now cause theres nothing that even requires the use of over 1ghz on a processor

its just the speed of the Processor on your Motherboard


but yeah, now I'm wondering what was messing up my old computer now

which later on I'm hooking up for a LAN

once I get it fixed right

someone said it might be the blasterworm on the computer, but I can't check that now, my friend is using it at her school while she is there and she is going to give it back when her classes are done in April, but no biggie, new computer kicks ass

Actually if you only had 1gig cpu your system would be super slow! The bare minimum you should have now days is 2gig.

Thats cause they're cheapskates. Order from any online PC shop and you'll be able to get stuff up to 3gig. Never buy below 2!

hahaha my friend I gave my PC too


She put on a virus scanner on the computer and guess why it wasn't working so well


IT HAD 450 VIRUSES ON IT

NOW THE WHOLE COMPUTER IS SCREWED!! hahaha I couldn't start laughing so now when she comes down for Christmas break, I have to reformat and fix everything again hahaha

but this time I'm gonna install the virus scanner first and kill the blaster worm virus before it screws it up like it did before hehe

hahaha if I told her that, she would burst out screaming saying IT WASSSS YOUUUU WHO LOOKS AT IT!!


then I would start laughing and then I would say, so? I'm a man damnit, I have my needs hahaha


cause it was funny, cause her brother let her use his super old super Crappy computer, AND HE HAD SO MUCH SPYWARE AND VIRUSES AND POORRNNNNN PROGRAMS ON THE COMPUTER that once I updated his windows on the computer, Windows now wouldn't load up

so I had to use the recovery disc that came with the computer to fix it haha

but when she gave it back, he didn't care he lost all his downloaded files, he only cared when she kept his mouse to use with my computer cause my old one broke

AND HE DOESN"T EVEN USE A COMPUTER, so that made me laugh he only used it for porn and downloading music hahaha
