  1. Hopefully if everything goes as planned, I'll be able to get my mom to buy a new processor so I can actually run Gmod properly and not crash between every map swap (loading screen).

    Will try get this : http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-Athlon-...048&sr=8-11&keywords=processor#productDetails

    Should make a big difference to the fact my current GHz is 2.2 and this new one is 3.4 GHz.
    And yes it is quite cheap, but it should do the job, that's if I'm allowed to get it. :p

    Well it's only a dual-core. You won't get gaming performance out of it for sure.

    Also, what's your current processor?

  3. Won't bother to check but my computer rating on it is 5.3 and the GHz on it is 2.2 so its pretty crappy.

    Well my max frequency is 2.7 GHz and quad-core. I forget what thread it was in and who said it, but it was along the lines of "CPU frequency is just a bragging right for manufacturers." Which it kinda is. Frequency is important, but there's other things like nano-architecture, number of cores, and number of threads, frequencies are not the only matter.
