Welcome to Geeks to Go!
To a certain extent, you are correct. But there are other factors involved that determine the speed of the processor, such as the number of cores, the cache size...
What CPU do you currently have, and what are you looking at getting? You'll need to make sure you maintain compatibility with your motherboard, though. Feel free to post your motherboard make/model too, and we can help you get the best upgrade "bang for your buck!"
