of course celeron is much faster, than pentium 3. celeron is 1.3GHz, but the pentium 3 is 1.0 GHz.

Oh yea, so I guess that means that a Pentium 4 3.0Ghz owns a Athlon 64 3200+ eh?

No, the P3 is faster. The Celerons are even worse than the P4s at utilizing their speed. The P3 is a much better architecture.

learn your CPUs and their capabilities before you go and give worthless information like this. Clock speed isn't everything

Nope, but is also dependant

Comparing a Pentium 3 1.0 ghz to a 1.3ghz celeron (p4 artechture), the Pentium 3 wins by far. To beat out a 1ghz Pentium 3, you would need at least a 1.4ghz pentium 4.

Pentium 3's, like AMD processors, do alot more per mhz.

Celeron would do just fine for general use.

Most of these guys forget that not EVERYONE plays games
