I dunno if i m making any sense but i am new to this , so please
excuse me for my lack of basic knowledge of PC hardware parts.
If you can compare the clock speed of celeron to pentium cpu ,
what would be the equivalent of a celeron 633 ? well , actually
i m wondering if i could use a celeron cpu for gaming purpose.
any suggestion ?

The Celery (as some call it) is a great Processor for gaming. If you want info on Processors and how to compare them. Go to www.aceshardware.com. (http://www.aceshardware.com.) It's an excellent site with lots of processor information. And if your game look into the Technical forum. Lot of IC engineers hang out there.

For gaming purposes the CPU brand or model is actually not as important as the memory and video card. Especially the video card, since that's where the high intensity graphics will take their toll.

For memory, Kingston, Micron and Crucial have good reputations, and have all been around for a while.

Video cards...I'd be all night naming companies...ATI, nVidia, Matrox, Creative Labs, Jaton, the list goes on...Just make sure the one you choose has plenty onboard memory. That's where the performance is.

If you had everything...Where would you put it?

Another good site for cpu info is www.cpuscorecard.com (http://www.cpuscorecard.com) detailed info on size/voltage/L2 cache etc. It also grades/rates on price vs performance. You will find that the PIII has better instructions for 3D programs along with a double-sized, on-die cache. In addition some of the PIII's are available for the socket 370 to replace celerons (if I read that correctly)

hey guys i've decided to go for AMD Duron 700 .
i've check out many hardware site for its review and i
think that this is the cpu for me . it fairs good enough
in most of the benchmarking . the only bad point is that
it consumes too much power -- 41 W . beside i've also
found a great board for AMD athlon/duron -- Gigabyte
7ZX which is based on VIA KT133 chipset . if u've check
out a few hardware site i think u should have heard of
it. guess AMD's the way to go ... so wish me good luck http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif
well , suggestions are still welcome .
