    I would say the Pentium if I had to choose between the two. The Pentium series has always been above the Celeron series.

    Maybe you should research just what a Celeron is. :rolleyes:

    Intel sure is NOT going to tell you this, but many Celerons are pentiums that failed the onboard cache tests during manufacturing. With out cache memory any processor chip is seriously crippled. So rather than throw those failed chips away, they just bypass the cache and sell the chip as a Celeron.

    NEVER buy a Celeron. They are very Poor performers. That's the bottom line.

    For a real top-O-the-line CPU at the lowest price, buy an AMD Dual Core.

    Cheers Mate!:toast:
