    Celeron vs AMD

    I'm buying an used PC. From the two choices I have, one has an Intel Celeron CPU running at 466Mhz. The other a AMD-K6-2 Processor, which I understand runs at 500 Mhz at least. Faced with those choices, and everything else being equal, which is the better processor? Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!

    According to what MotherBoard and Chipset it has, the Celeron might be able to be Overclocked to 500 MHZ or more. I have done it many times. As for which is better. I like the Celeron over the AMD. But as you are going to find out, everybody has there own Opinions. As for as everyhting else being equal, I would ask What MotherBoard and Chipset are these Proccesors using, because it makes a difference. I would rather have the AMD setting on a good MotherBoard, then the Celeron setting on a crappy MotherBoard. Can you give us some more details?

    As Cowboy said, everyone has their preference. It is the Chevy vs. Ford thing. In your case I would go with the AMD because it has more cache (128k of L1 and 256k of L2) on the processor than the Celeron (32k of L1 and 128k of L2).

    My apologies for not responding earlier. Didn't want to bother you guys too much with a $50 decision. Appreciate the information. Hope I don't offend anyone but, I agree, Chevy sucks! Thanks!!
