Default Another Noob Question

Just wondering what Gh/z is... Like a P.4 3.0 Gh/z PC. What does Gh/z represent, and what does it measure/do? Thanks.

Then again an athlon 64 3000+ is at 1.8GHz.....but the 3000+ is part of AMD's P-Scale...meaning its equivalent to an intel 3.0GHz

You might not be, like us, If you don't plan on gaming, just using a computer for what most people do, surfing the web, instant messaging, emailing.. I built my mom a computer with a P4 2.2ghz processor, and that is plenty nice..
