What is 2.53 Gigahertz in terms of megahertz? I have a basic Dell B110 desktop, and need to know :tazz: Basically, how many megahertz does my computer have?

2,530.

1 Gigahertz = 1000Mhz.

Yeah dont get that confused with giga when you talk about memory size, in that case the giga mean times it by 1024 instead of a 1000, you didnt need to know just an interesting fact.

When it comes to frequencies though they use the stabdard scientific multpliers so 2530Mhz is the same as 2530 *10^6 Hz, and giga is 2.53 *10^9 Hz. Again you dont need to know but i may as well share all the semi useless knowledge i have in my head.

Thanks. Since its already up, why start a new thread. My computer specs are actually for a computer I just ordered from Dell. It is the basic computer. A Dell Dimension B110 Desktop, Would you perhaps know how the gaming performance for this would be???

Why didn't you ask before buying it? :tazz:

That particular Dell model will perform very poorly (if at all) in today's games (and I use "today's games" loosely, it's more like any games newer than 4 years old). A better, as far as prebuilts, would be a computer that can actually support the graphics cards needed to play todays games comfortably.

if you're at all concerned about performance in games, and if it is at all possible to cancel your order from Dell, consider this emachines system:
http://www.emachines...eMachines_T6524

and upgrade it with one PCI-E graphics card of your choice, depending on the performance you want, and your budget. any help with that ask, but I'll leave you with a few choices of graphics cards (these will work in the e-machines stated above. NOT the Dell)

Its not going to be fabulous, i dont think it has a gfx card or even PCI-E but i dont check the specs of dell pcs and the model numbers vary in different countries as well as the parts. Dont expect anything from a basic dell.
