Which is better?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, I was going to part out my old rig for my friend who has an older Compaq from the planet Omicron Percei 8. His has a 3.2GHz Celeron D 352 with 512kb L2 as opposed to MY Pentium 4 515J @ 2.93GHz w/ 1Mb L2 Cache. Otherwise, the two are equal. Anyone?

Would this upgrade be worth it?

Should be noticeably faster....depends how you justify "worth it".

Worth putting it in the other PC. Having to put on new thermal paste. The only thing in that old rig that will be unusable is the Motherboard...the rest will be parted wisely. So we will see the boost then?

I'd take the Celeron D 3.20ghz over the P4.

The Celly with a 65nm will overclock a lot higher than the P4, cache is not going to make such huge impact, clocks will, it's a Netburst design where clocks matter the most.

Can't be OCd on a Compaq motherboard. We really can't afford to get a new motherboard and stuff. Which ever one is better on stock, I would like to know.
