Lightbulb quick question...

is there a huge difference in speed between a 2.66 celeron and pentium 4 with the same speed?

i would try AMD, but i would probably have to buy a new mobo, which would cost a bit (the one i already have is $300)

let me rephrase it...is a pentium 4 2.66 Ghz faster than a celeron 2.66 Ghz, or is it the same speed?

Yes, a P4 is faster than a celeron at the same speed.

Look at this benchmark:

The Pentium's in red, and the Celeron 2.6 is in red also... at the bottom of the list.

Or here's one with a P4 2.66 and a Celeron D 2.8...still under the P4:

wow, i guess thats why you can get a top-of-the-line celeron for the price of a used pentium 4

by what extent it is faster depends on the core and what series. there are P4's series A, B, C, etc. the higher the letter, the faster the processor. In almost all instances, a P4 with the same frequency of a Celeron is going to be faster
