The Celeron D are good... They just have a smaller cache than the Pentiums. 300 series Celerons are the lesser version of the Pentium 400 series.

You aren't gonna have much luck staying away from Celerons if you're trying to get the whole rig for $400. Infact, I can only really offer eMachine or Dell solutions for your quest.

Yeah, that's gonna be tough.........



Case - $42.99

P5P800-MX Motherboard - $67

2.66Ghz P4 Prescot - $111

512MB PC3200 DDR Memory - $44

Seagate SATA 120GB Hard Drive - $85

LiteOn Combo Drive - $29.99

TOTAL - $379.98

Best I can do..........with tax and shipping, might go a little over. If your budget is a FIRM $400, you can go with a Celeron instead,

2.66Ghz Celeron D Prescot - $78

The only major difference is L2 Cache, 1MB for the Pentium, 256k for the Celeron.

This will change your pre-tax/shipping total to $346.98.
