can any body tell me which is the best. either 500mhz or 667 celeron runs epsxe betteri want to buy 500mhz original in place of 667mhz celeron.for the reason that original has more cache size than celeron.and it is almost twice faster than celeron processor.one more thing which is strange that my sound blaster live value card was running with 667mhz celeron perfect when i bought it.but now it is not installing.but when oringinal 500mhz processor was used my sound blaster was easily installed on my pc.what is going on and it is the main reason i am changing my processor.

Well the pentiums are always faster then celerons.I checked at Intel site and they say that Pentiums play 3d games way better then celerons.A P-III 555mhz is better then a celeron 933mhz
trust me.

celeron sucks - get a real processor : Pentium III Coppermine or Athlon TBird

even Duron is much much better than any Celeron

now about my sound card.when ever i try to install the old drivers which come with the original disk,a blue screen appears giving some kind of emu10k error.but when i use the latest drivers, they are easily installed,work well but when i try to make pc to pc calls using paltalk and other softwares,the sound stutters and is kind of choppy.this did not happened with old drivers.it all began when i installed windows ME and mistakingly installed win98 driver on it.after that i formatted the hard disk many times to get rid off the curse of windows ME.but did'nt succeed.and same problem appears.any idea how to fix it.i am using it on se440bx2 motherboard with the celeron processor.could it be my processor? but i had been using with it earlier.

Oh man what a heck problem......okay let me think what U mean.The problem is not in the Processor thats for sure.....okay......now motherboard.......your PCI slot is okay as you say that U donot get the error on new drivers.......pkay two things done.....now the thridone is that your software problem.......now I would ask you one think are U using a final version of windows or not.Like I am using windows second edition final version.SOme times this is the problem.And one more things have you done something with you motherboard BIOS,because when you are fingering with the BIOS then such error come.One more thing SBlive is a full duplex card and it works fine will all of the chats and phones.So the choppy voice is due to busted ISP.

Well if you are getting problems problems and problems then tell me where U live in Pakistan.I will give you my driver CD of SBlive!........That will sort things out.

Thats all I can do for you Brother.........:)

i am using windows second edition but don't know whether it has final one or not.i never ever go near the bios.how to solve the busted ISP thingy?i have the driver cd and i live in faisalabad.where are you from?
WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW?KILL THE BIOS WITH SHOTGUN? PLANT A DYNAMITE ON ISP? OR WASH AWAY THE OPERATING SYSTEM.:eyes:

The original Celerons were good processors (equal to the Pentium 2 processors) but the newer ones blow. They're nothing compared to their big brother, the Pentium 3 Coppermine, although they're based on the same design. Of course this is not to say that the newer Celerons are worse than the older Celerons, they just don't perform nearly as well as they should. I think the main limiting factor is the front side bus (66 Mhz) and although Intel recently bumped them up to 100 it still pales in comparison to the P3 and Athlon. Right now the Durons are the best and cheapest value processors you can get. If you're looking to get an upgrade for your current system then I say go for the newer Celerons, provided that your mobo chipset can handle them. They're clocked higher and are faster than the older models and based on a smaller die (0.18 micron as opposed to 0.25) which means less heat, less power consumption and more speed potential (overclock :)) and the newer Celeries have SSE technology, which has proven to work miracles for photoshop rendering.

Actually the P3 555 processors were based on the old Katmai design, not the newer Coppermine design. A Celeron 933 would blow the P3 out of the water. A P3 Coppermine can easily take the Celeron to school though.

I have a Celeron 600 which is stabily overclocked to 900mhz. I overclocked with my friend's help by switching from 66mhz FSB to 100mhz FSB. I didn't even have to increase the voltage to make it stable. Its a good processor for $65 US. BTW it was $65 about 7 months ago so it should be cheaper now.
I really don't know anything about how different kinds of processors compare to each other.

These few benchmarks may guide you to take more wise decision

it's between CELERON vs DURON - (i'm showing you the value class processors benchmark. The Higher class processors - P4, PIII, TBird - will lead all these points easily)



see? How Duron outperforms Celeron - even a lousy Duron 600 takes the leads over Celeron 800

The intel celeron processors which are obove 700 have the ability to be over clocked for upto 15 percent more. As the heating is concerned well U will need a new heatsink and fan since the one already on it is very small and cannot give you a good help in over clocking.

If you overclock a celeron, U have 900........hmm........don'y go obove 1.1 ghz..........well thats high too.......!
