Dude this is not quite what I had in mind, oh hi, today we're going to show you how to choose a processor. We want something fast, ridiculously fast. What? How to choose a computer processor? Well its actually a complicated process of comparing the floating point calculating unit to the MTBF and calculations per second. Now look, its not quite that easy but its not quite that complicated either. OK, let's talk about how to choose a processor. Remember the processor is the brain of your computer so its very important to consider first of all, the kind of work you're going to do. The faster the processor, the faster the computer will run. Now not too long ago a very famous computer guy said if card technology kept up with processor or computer technology, we'd all be driving 25 dollar cars that got a thousand miles to the gallon. One of the latest advancements in computer technology is the ability to have two processors. That certainly makes things go faster. But keep this in mind, the fastest processor in the world will not seem very fast if you don't have plenty of memory, RAM, and fast hard drives with plenty of hard drive space. Better to save a little money on your processor and buy plenty of RAM and buy a really fast hard drive. Now there is an exception to the rule. If you're doing high end computing like gaming or video production, the faster the processor, the faster you're going to get your work done, the faster you're going to be able to play that game. Don't make the mistake of thinking just because your processor might be twice the price that its twice as fast. Often at the high end of processors, you'll only see about a 15% increase in speed. But remember, always read the flipping manual.
