Basic question,what is RAM,CPU power?
I'm trying to understand the advantage of having more RAM and having a more GHz processor.I know that basically having more of them makes programs run smoothly,i just don't understand their basic working and effect on the computer's performance.I have a laptop with windows 7 and i'm always trying to keep the heat generation to a minimum.I normally watch the windows CPU meter for that:
The circle on the left keeps fluctuating and the one on the right remains constant most of the time.I know that the one circle on the left shows us about the heat generation.I watch a lot of videos on my laptop,so to reduce heat generation,i was looking for a media player which keeps %CPU power on left circle to a minimum and offers same level of performance.I observed that the media players which used least %power on the left used relatively more %power on the right,not by much though(a few % more).
So is there more advantage of having a more GHz processor than having more RAM or viceversa?I know that this is a very basic question,but i'm just not able to find the exact answer that i'm searching for.
When i type in the same question on google,i get answers like the processor is the brain of the computer and stuff,but i just want to know how having more of it will affect the performance of my computer,when i play games or do other processes which require a lot of CPU power.
