The CPU (or processor) is the central component of a computer. Every task that happens on your computer, from running a document to browsing the internet to playing a game, is controlled by the central processing unit (CPU).

CPU power is primarily dependent on clock speed (measured in GHz) and the number of cores. Generally speaking, the faster the clock speed and the more cores a CPU has, the faster it will perform, although it isn't necesasrily the most cost-effective approach to choosing a CPU!

If you’re buying a PC for basic tasks like emails, browsing the internet and using basic applications like word processing, then a dual-core CPU will be perfect. If you’re intending to use your PC for more intensive activities like gaming, video/audio editing or graphic design then you’ll want at least a quad-core (or higher!) CPU.

We stock CPUs that will fulfil all of these tasks and more. We aim to keep all of the main Intel and AMD processor families in stock at all times.
