The Pentium D is a dual core processor and the Celeron D is just the newer model Celerons. Celerons are just basically beat down Pentiums. The Pentium may have a lower clock speed, but it will make up for it with the second core and more cache. You will definitally notice a BIG difference.

As was mentioned before, I would go with AMD if possible.

Celerons are just the newer versions of PIII's so P4's are much better.

You're on a limited budget, yet you are choosing a FX-55? I'm confused. Let me tell you, the FX CPUs are incredibly overpriced and not worth it.

I would suggest the X2 4800. It costs a little over $600. Its only slightly slower than the FX55, but it is dual core, so it makes up the difference in a big way.

The Celerons are p4's with less cache. They've all been based on the current p4. williamette, northwood and prescott. The p4 is still much better tho. And of course you should go with AMD tho.
