Default OLD intel parts...

hi guys, just a question.

Im not too clued up on intel (cause ive never used them) but my girlfriends comp currently has a pentium 3 800EB. (whatever the EB means) Anyway i have managed to get a hold of an old comp, and it has a celeron 850Mhz in it. Now the p3, for some reason, cant be overclocked at ALL. But i have managed to overclock the celeron to 912Mhz.

So my question is this:
Whats better? A 912Mhz Celeron (with a 107mhz fsb) or a p3 800Mhz (with a 133Mhz FSB)
??

cheers guys.

i know that the celeron's arent the greatest chips...but why??

i mean, the celeron is over 100Mhz faster, that has to count for something.

Celerons don't have a math coprocessor.

LOL...sithspawn, if your not going to use the Celeron, why don't you sell it to someone who doesn't know how bad Celeron really is!!!
