A:Hello and thank you for sending your question.

This information has been taken from our DATABASE Both processors (Celeron and Pentium) are products of Intel If you compare the Celeron 333 to a regular PII 333 on the IComp processor benchmark graph, you would notice that the Celeron is a slower processor, but also cheaper Processors nowadays are so fast, you would not even notice the significant difference on their speed.

For your second question, this would have to depend on how you would use this computer If you want to use this computer for the latest and greatest games out there and you are willing to shed extra bucks, the Pentium would probably be a better choice for you For regular home use, I suggest that you buy the Celeron and use the extra money for something you enjoy I hope this answer your questions, if not, please, resubmit Good luck and happy shopping for your new computer!
