Pentium 4 Vs Celeron D

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
My neighbor wants me to speed up and upgrade their old computer. They said buying a new computer is NOT an option unfortunately. Right now they have a 2.53GHz Celeron D 533FSB and 256 cache. I have an old Pentium 4 lying around, 2.8GHz, 533FSB and 512 cache. How much of an improvement would they see, minimal? They have 1GB of ram and I really don't feel like driving to the closest computer store to get more ram redface.gif which is 25 miles.

The P4HT should perform slightly better, but keep in mind that it runs pretty hot as compared to the Celeron D.

The extra cache and clock speed on the P4 will help tremendously.

Give me a P4 over a Celeron D any day cool.gif

I agree! I don't get it though cause I offered her an Athlon x2 2.8GHz with 2GB Ram for VERY cheap and she denied it. Aren't illiterate people an interesting species? tongue.gif

I had a celly D clocked at 4.1GHz (see sig) and it still ran like crap due to the lack of cache.
