there is such a thing :)

1.8ghz athlon is not an 1800+ but rather a 2200+

amd performance rating...

I ran pcmark2002 the other day. My 2200+ beat a 2.5pentium in the comparison chart. However a 1900+ beat me out on the same chart for some reason. Go figure.

the setups do matter...

I work on a 2200+ and a 2.4 ghz intel side by side @ work and trust me... there is no comparison...

sure you can oc and what not but for office use @ stock speeds... amd has better iq for the apps we use..

You really can't compare an Athlon XP to a Celeron, come on! :p

The Athlon is definitely a better option. The L2 cache plays a big role there. My Pentium III outperforms Celerons with higher clock speeds. ;)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
