P4, Celeron or P4-M. Which is best?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My CPU has taken a dive on me, and is becomeing more and more unstable. I am saving for a new system, and hope to have the money for it by mid/late january. However, my P4 is refusing to run at anything above 1.4 GHz... It has be come more and more unstable over time, so before long, I expect it will be in the 3 digits. So, here is my questoin: Which would be better: My computer (the one in my sig) with a 1.4 GHz or less P4, my laptop with a 1.3 GHz P4-M, 512 MB RAM and a Radeon 7500 or my computer with a Celeron D 310 (which I would overclock the crap out of, obv.)?

Well i'd have to say you should go for a Pentuim M, make sure it's a Dothan though.

You'll have to get a CT-479 Adaptor for your P4P800SE.

When overclocked to 2.8Ghz the Dothan's can out preform FX-55's

They can easily reach 2.4 -2.5 on stock cooling, though they are a bit more expensive i'd say it was the way to go.

Get a P-M 730, i think it's the best value for money but someone can correct me if i'm wrong
