The Build A New PC – CPU Processor Edition

Our hearts work tirelessly every minute beating non-stop while we are alive, and when it stops beating we stop living. The CPU in every PC is akin to the heart in our bodies, a vital computer component that works incessantly while the PC runs its programs and applications.

As we continue our weekly Friday series on the deals we spotted for computer components in building your new PC for the new year, today we have our eyes on the heart of every PC – the CPU processor.
