    i went to overclockers.com and saw an article that showed you can reach 3ghz on a celeron 2ghz. they used an MSI645-E mobo to oc it, but im sure theres something better to use. got any ideas of what i could use with a celeron 2ghz?preferrably one that could easily increase the voltage and fsb, maybe even support rdram(is that possible?). Anyways, i thought some people might find this as a good alternative to dishing out $200+ for a p4.

    ok,try going to overclockers.com and check out the article, its pretty recent. it benchmarked better than a 2.66 p4 and it costs about 100$. i think thats really appealing, dont u?

    You should also consider that the new and fastest celeron only uses 128 kb of cache memory whitch i think is a weakness.
    High mhz frequency is not all...

    But i agree, the price is damn good... :thumb:

    Celerons are very nice proc's but you are better of with a P4. Like aznx said get the 1.6ghz and OC it. You would be suprised how much they will OC. And remember benchmarks are only numbers. They cant show how well it will do when running multiple programs. Playing games etc...
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.
