Okay well I am finally going to upgrade my Dell Dimension 2400. I am 1st going to upgrade my processor. My 1st thought was to upgrade to a Pentium 4. But a few friends told me that Celeron-D was better for speed. The one thing I do not understand about computers is the processors... Here are the ones I'm looking at.

Celeron-D

Which do you think is better for speed, and multitasking?

pentium 4.


celeron is HORRIBLE

tell your friends that say its good to put a straw up their ass.

the celeron D is horrible because it has wayyy less cache and its a budget processor.

Yes, I prefer the Pentium 4 but I also have a 2.4Ghz Celeron (R) and that ( Shockingly) works better than my parents 2.2 Ghz AMD athlon

Something has to be wrong with your parents computer then. That Athlon should smoke the Celeron.

exactly what i was thinking. depends on the rest of the specs, what programs its running, etc. im guessing the athlon pc is in bad shape
