    I have five "Pentium Class" computers at my house. Three of them are Dells (one PII 450, one PIII 450 laptop, and one P4 1.5Ghz.) I also have a slow Compaq DeskPro 4000 Pentium MMX 166Mhz, and a home-built Celeron 850Mhz. Majority rules, so I voted Pentium.

    I've never owned a computer that didn't have an Intel CPU.

    i got 3 pcs...
    pentium 750
    celeron 433
    amd k6/2 400

    the celly floors the k6/2 for performance and my pentium floors me m8s 1.4ghz athlon for windows operating (loading programs and games, saving etc). He gets about an extra 40fps in 1024x768 on counterstrike... altho i built both pcs personally and tweaked them as best possible.

    imo, u spend less money on an amd, and spend the money u saved on cooling for it cuz they're gits to get cool :/

    MdSalih, there are also several types of pentium class processors too, but Athlon XP's are the best anyway.

    well i like both the pentium and athlon, but when coming to built a computer i go on price more than performance.

    2. Pentium lll 450mhz
    3. Athlon 1.0ghz
    4. Pentium 4 2.0ghz
