Celeron Dual-Cores?

By Spleenharvester

  1. Is it worth getting one of these (E1400 instead of an E2200 or something similar? I am tight on cash btw :evil:

    -will it bottleneck my 8800GT?
    -is the cache too restricting?
    -is it a good OC'er?
    -is the E1200 1.6ghz a better choice?

    thanks :)

    Its performance will be abysmal, but not too bad. I'd still recommend the E2180 as the bare minimum, but if you can't afford it, I guess it won't be too bad. Your performance will be held back though.

    well, it would take me a couple of months to save up for the E1400 and probably another to get the E2200. There is a much bigger price difference here though (£34-£52).

    @Spleenharvester, the E2180 or E2200 would be a far better buy IMO. The choice is upto you however.

    Oh, that's OK Rage, when writing in a public forum, It's always the best policy to wear a conundrum. ROTFL

    It actually wouldn't pay to spring for an E2200 unless you were going to run it at stock speed. The E2180 would overclock well past 2.2Ghz anyway. I have an E2200 and I love it, but I'm an old fart who runs it at stock frequency.
