Hi there,

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!"

Cheers

well i was asking because i want to build a new computer for gaming and i want to be sure which is the best cpu i can use ( less than 500 bucks ) because i've seen cpus that are 3ghz and cost $200 and other that are 2.60ghz and cost 300 so i want to know how can i determine which cpu i need or which is the best.

Thanks

So you're upgrading the processor in the current computer, or you're looking for information to help you choose parts for a new build? Or both?
