  1. Hi guys

    I just wanted to ask how good Intel Celeron

    If I upgrade my Pentium 4 2.66 processor to a Intel Celeron D 3.06.... how good would it be... I have heard that Celeron are not so good processors, is that true? Would changing my processor give me any performance boost…?

    I think it's becuse they have a slower front system bus (fsb) the a pent

    So that's why p's are better.

    Not to sure and going of the top of my head.

    It's kind of like comparing a Chevette to a Caddilac. The Celerons are basic economy .Good for email, moderate Office and mid-low level games, et.In fact you probably would not notice any significant gain between th 2 processors you mentioned.
    Step up as high on the P4 list as you can afford. better yet for my money go after a Single or Dual Core they are showing promise. Maybe just wait a little while to work out some bugs.They are priced close to the p4's anyway, and the processing capabilities look really good.
