Which should i buy, celeron566 or 550E fcpga for same price?
I have seen both for about the same price to me in the UK. Which performs better after being oc'ed i cant make up my mind after reading the firingsquad reviews. Which do u think would do better. I have the cas2 pc133 ram, and so I would expect the 550E to do 730mhz (5.5*133) and the celeron to probably do (8.5*100). Which is better, a 730 p3, or a 850 celeron?
Bear in mind it'll be used primarily for games, and various applications secondarily.
Thx for the help.
Definitely the 550e. The Cel II are VERY unimpressive! They can overclock REALLY high but it doesn't mean squat if it performs the same as a lower clocked PIII (Cu). One web site had a Cel II 566@901 and it performed maybe a little better than a PIII650e!! The only thing you can say if you bought a Cel II 566 is that you didn't pay too much for it and you are running at 800MHz+. But if you want performance I would go with the 550e. You should be able to hit 750+ with a 550e.

Dont ask me how, or why, i think a typo on the website maybe, but i've seen them both for 129pounds, ex vat, thats 150inc basically.
If i can get them at these prices, which d'ya reckon? http://cgi.www.demon.net/cgi-bin/www...ricelist_r#CPU
(if u want to look, its a UK shop)
I've got good quality ram, micron 128mb rated 2-2-2@133 PC133. I figure there's a good chance the ram will do possibly into the 140's. That'd mean around a 750 p3, what would be the limit on the celeron, and overall which would be better d'ya reckon? My board is a Bx6 revII, and a tnt2m64 video card (which i've run fine at 83mhz before).
Your ram and your AGP will be the limiting factor with a BX mobo. You'll probably have no problems with your ram running your FSB at 140 but your AGP will be at 93MHz! I don't know if your TNT will be able to hold out, but you can test it out by running it at 1/1 on a 93 MHz FSB.
I'm planning on a globalwin FKP32 and IWILL slotket2 with some thermal compound. What do you reckon the celly could hit on that? I basically reckon 133*5.5 would be the p3, 730mhz. Do u reckon the celly will go much above 850??? And presuming i use the celly at 850 and the p3 at 730, which is actually better!?
