I want to know if Pentium 2 is better than the AMD Duron?

Pentium 2 - 700Mhz
AMD Duron - 750MHz

What is the the speed of the Pentium 3 processor?

Can the PC with the Pentium 2 processir be upgraded to the Pentium 3 and or/Pentium 4 processor?

Many thanks

You will notice absolutely no difference between these processors.

You cannot upgrade from a P2 to a P4 and there is very limited potential to upgrade from a P2 to a P3.

P3's went from about 650MHz - 1.4Ghz click here

Just one more thing.

Is the Pentium 3 processor better than AMD Duron processor? Again there is no difference.

Many thanks

The was never such a thing as a Pentium2 running at 700MHZ - the fastest was 450MHz click here

Many thanks for the replies

I will now probably go for a 2nd hand PC with the Pentium 3 processor.
Possibilities of upgrading the pentium 3 processor (replace with the latest pentium processor)? Is this difficult?

It's not possible without many other changes - ie - motherboard, RAM - possibly PSU too.
