Depends what processor you have. If you have intel, then 2.8-3.4 would be the optimum speed. But for AMD, 2.0-2.6 would be the optimum. BTW ghz dont matter. Its the number of processes the CPU can do that matters. Intel admitted that, and now they dont label their CPU's by ghz. They use the numbers like 530 or 515 or something like that.
