  1. I am looking for a processor for a gaming PC... I have questions on these specs that I saw:
    Processor Speed:
    Cache Size:
    L2 Cache:
    L3 Cache:
    Bus Speed:

    What are these Cache Size, L2 Cache, and L3 Cache?
    What's the difference between L2 and L3 Cache?
    What's the difference between Processor Speed and Bus Speed? Which is more important?

    Thanks!

    All of this information is available online with a Google search, and is way too much information for a post here on TechSpot.

    Processor speed is not the most important element for gaming, either. You might benefit from some reading on a gaming site, or other sites with the detail.

    Then come back with specific questions related to specific issues.
