long story but crux of the matter can anyone tell me if a 3 ghz 478 celeron proccesor will give equivalent performance to a 478 2.66 pentium 4 money is an issue here and the celerons appear 50% cheaper. lot of video editing just wonder what your thoughts were.darren p.s. graphics is nvidia gf4 4200 ti 768mb ddr ram

P4 will give much better performance. Without boring you with details, the Celeron is a cut down P4. Whilst the clock speed may be the same, the performance will not. It's a bit like having a diesel and petrol car with the same engine size, performance will not necessarily be the same.

You appear to be inferring that the diesel will be inferior to the petrol engine equivalent.

In actual fact the reverse is the case. The diesel, because of superior torque levels, will outperform the petrol equivalent at every level.

The Celeron is the cheaper version of a Pentium4 and, for many people, it will prove perfectly satisfactory.

But for the best performance you would select the Pentium4.

thanks guys will the difference be that obvious say when encoding video between the celeron at 3ghz and the pentium 4 at 2.66ghz.is there anywhere with real life bench marks to compare the two. darren

If you're encoding video forget the Celeron
Not a comparison as the celeron isnt shown in this set of tests (

but there is a review here click here

You said:

I know this is a computer forum, but are you seriously saying that a diesel engine, aspirated in the same way as an equivalent sized petrol engine, will outperform it in every way?

Normally aspirated diesels are rare these days, they are usually TDi units.

An example. The Ford Focus with the 1.8 TDCI 115bhp engine at least matches the performance of the two-litre petrol engined version - in-gear performance is slightly superior.

Forgetting the car analogy, as remind says, don't even consider the Celeron for video editing.
