Slight OT: Which CPU?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have a home web server and am due to upgrade it.What will be in it regardless:
512MB RAM
40GB+ 5400RPM HD (Keeps noise down)

Now...The CPU...
1x Celeron 1.7GHz 128K L2 S478 or
1x P4 1.5GHz 256K L2 S478 or
2x P3 1.13GHz 512K L2 S370.

I'm in a predicament, as it's either more speed now, less upgrade later with the P3s, or less speed now, more upgrade later with the P4...Or even less speed now, more upgrade later with the Celeron

Opinions?

Cheers guys,

Karl

I wouldn't be supprised if the p4 is faster than the celeron dispite the 200mhz difference in clock. I'd say go with the p4.
