Also are all Celerons Socket 775? More about : faster ulysses35 a b à CPUs March 12, 2010 3:52:37 PM Celeron is the "Budget" name intel has used since the P2 / P3 days up until the present day.

For example. 2.0Ghz C2D is faster than a 3.0Ghz PD Depending what celeron it is, it might be faster, but I bet the P4 is faster if their both netburst architecture. bullet937 March 12, 2010 10:45:13 PM I've had better fortune with celerons then i have with P4.
