Default What is faster?

I have a choice for my PC at my job. I am currently using this:

2xPIII 700mhz/100fsb/256 l2 cache

I have 1 PIII 733/133/256 sitting around. What would be faster, the 2xPIII's or the 733 with 33mhz more cpu and 33mhz more fsb but I only have 1.

Any input is appreciated. For some reason it felt smoother with the 733.

Depends on what you use it for.

EDIT: What's the OS?

Yeh i would think the dual would be a lot faster because of the 2 physical cpu's but i suppose it depends on your motherboard, ram and hdd configuration as well which might be why the 700 felt smoother?
