I currently have a celeron D 360 3.46G and have a friend who is willing to give me a pentium D 925 3.0 G, would it be a good idea to switch my celeron for the Pentium D?

Definitely. As long as you don't have to pay anything.

The Pentium is dual core, has more cache and uses the 200/800 fsb.
On the other hand, it runs a lot hotter, so dont try using your celery hsf on it. Spend a few bucks to get a decent after market unit. The stock one, that came with the chip have a tendency to loosen off.
Make sure you have great case ventilation, and expect your room to get a few degrees warmer.

Change to the Pentuim D then try and swap the Celeron for a Core 2 (must be a newbie) and tell them "More GHZ = More performance" (lie)

heh, mean and cruel, but i would do the same...definetly "upgrade" to the Pent D and then get a new hsf for ~30$ or so. it should make your whole system feel much faster than using that celery.

your system will run much much faster with pentium d - you can overlcok the bus to 920+fsb
