Quick Question

In an on the cheep upgrade... I opted for a Pentium 111 - 450MHz w/512
over the slightly faster Celeron 500MHz w/128

Do you think this was the right desicion...?
What do you think...?

You picked it right. On chip cache makes a big difference.

put it this way....

when i did some benchmarking years ago a celeron 700 was running about the same as a pentium2 350 (quake3 timedemo1)

good choice :-)

Great choice! my friend has a celeron 700 and it runs the same speed as my 266mhz server. My p3 500mhz is also faster than my other friends celeron 1.4ghz. It's Pentium all the way

avoid celerons like the plague unless you only use office applications and do light surfing only

Fascinating :-)
Considering a celeron 1400 (which i assume is a tualatin celeron) is for all intents and purposes is a p111 running at on a 100fsb instead of 133 fsb
