    i am going to be building a new computer soon i dont need it for heavy gaming or real heavy uses but i want to know which cpu to get i am thinking of the amd 2500 or would the celeron 2.6 be better because they are around the same price

    I'd go with the Athlon 2500+ Barton core, that's what I have now, and it's quite a nice CPU, Celeron would be alright if you aren't planning on any gaming, but I still prefer the AMD
    Q6600 @ 3.42Ghz | Gigabyte EP35-DS3R | EVGA 8800GT 721/1802/2006 w/ Accelero S1 | 4gb Crucial DDR2 @ 760mhz | 750gb Hitachi 7k1000 | Corsair 520HX | 2 x Samsung SyncMaster T240 24" | Windows 7 Ultimate

    haha no. And you will make your 333Mhz core a 400Mhz core soon enough GO WITH THE AMD. Dont get Celeron. It has a small L2 Cache (pronounced cash) which makes it slower.

    Get the AMD 2500+. It's more powerful.


    @bigdawg, It's not right to assume that everyone will overclock their systems.

    but he should newayz
    That's only your opinion.

    May I remind you that he didn't ask if he should overclock. Why don't you let him decide that on his own?

    He is just trying to compare 2 products.

    If you dont overclock, the AMD will still be better. Definently get the AMD. If you plan on overclocking...The AMD is freaking awesome for that.
