Default server upgrade

i have a server running on a P4 1.8 Northwood on an Asrock P4i65G mobo with 1 gig of ram. would i get better performance if i got a Celeron D 325 2.53GHz. it has a fsb of 533mhz and L2 Cache of 256KB over my P4s 400mhz and L2 Cache of 512KB.

also, im using an Asus V7100PRO (Nvidia GeForce 2). will it decrease performance if i use the onboard video (Intel Extreme Graphics 2)

thanks

depending on how many users will be accessing it...if only you and a few others will be using it constantly but otherwise i doubt you'll notice a whole lot of difference.

thanks for the reply.

i was also wondering, if i were to put the celeron d into my other comp, intel 865gbf mobo with 512mb ram, would it be better for internet surfing and word processing or would the P4 be better. im using onboard video for this pc.
