I'm not sure about the speed produced by those two. You should test it first. But i think it won't make much difference. Change your vga and increase your memory should be better.

its ok but when alot of stuff is on screen in certain games it slows down alot and i feel this is the bottleneck of the celeron d

I don't think your proccessor caused that. Every proccessor running above 2 Gg is enough to run any 3d games, unless your computer is a game server :). It might be your memory. Try adding it!

nah he has 1gb already.

Celerons are different from P4s. they have more cache and stuff. A P4 will run faster than a celeron of the same clock rate. However, check to make sure that you've got the FSB speed set right.

The P4 will definitely speed things up.

Celerons are considerably slower than Pentium 4s.

Here's a good benchmark to compare CPUs: http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/2004122 ... #directx_9

Thats not true,my Athlon 64 runs at 1.8Ghz normally, it will SMOKE any Celeron and most P4's below 3Ghz. Nowadays clocks speed doesnt really matter, the float point, memory bandwidth and cache makes more of a differance. Go ahead put the P4 in, everything will certainly run faster.

//Edit, i put Fload instead of Float

Agreed. CPU architecture makes more of a difference than clock speeds. I've yet to hear of a Celeron that runs faster than a Pentium 4.

i would love to see someone overclock a celeron with liquid CO2 just to prove you wrong :D

(and yeh there is a point in that)

it would take one hell of an overclock to pull it off, so yeh, the celerons are basicly stupidly crippled p4's

If i had a Vapochill i would go out and buy a celeron to see if i could get it to 5Ghz, but currently i dont :roll:, ive heard of celerons at 4Ghz which would be very funny to see how they performed.

i have a 2.3 celeron and that about a 17p4 in comparison so i would assume that that would do a better job. I just ordered a 3.2p4 and i can't wait.
