Which Processor is faster for B110?

Dell Dimension B110

Specs: Windows, Pentium/Celeron
I am planning to upgrade my Dell Dimension B110's Processor to a Pentium Processor.

This is the Celeron Processor (This Came with my Dell):

Number of processors 1
Number of cores 1 per processor
Number of threads 1 per processor
Name Intel Celeron 325
Code Name Prescott
Specification Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.53GHz
Package Socket 478 mPGA
Family/Model/Stepping F.4.1
Extended Family/Model F.4
Core Stepping E0
Technology 90 nm
Core Speed 2527.1 MHz
Multiplier x Bus speed 19.0 x 133.0 MHz
Rated Bus speed 532.0 MHz
Stock frequency 2533 MHz
Instruction sets MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3
L1 Data cache (per processor) 16 KBytes, 8-way set associative, 64-byte line size
Trace cache (per processor) 12 Kuops, 8-way set associative
L2 cache (per processor) 256 KBytes, 4-way set associative, 64-byte line size


This is the Pentium 4 Processor:

Number of processors 1
Number of cores 1 per processor
Number of threads 1 per processor
Name Intel Pentium 4
Code Name Northwood
Specification Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.60GHz
Package Socket 478 mPGA
Family/Model/Stepping F.2.9
Extended Family/Model F.2
Brand ID 9
Core Stepping D1
Technology 0.13 um
Core Speed 2593.6 MHz
Multiplier x Bus speed 13.0 x 199.5 MHz
Rated Bus speed 798.0 MHz
Stock frequency 2600 MHz
Instruction sets MMX, SSE, SSE2
L1 Data cache (per processor) 8 KBytes, 4-way set associative, 64-byte line size
Trace cache (per processor) 12 Kuops, 8-way set associative
L2 cache (per processor) 512 KBytes, 8-way set associative, 64-byte line size

Now, the Celeron has the SSE3, but Pentiums are better than celerons and now I am so confused on which processor is better! The Celeron numbers are even higher than the Pentium 4. Please tell me which Processor is better.

The SSE instructions don't mean much if you aren't going to run programs that take advantage of them and besides the diff between SSE2 and SSE3 is minor. All SSE3 is is an extention of SSE2.

The Pentuim 4 2.6ghz is slighty better, but you won't see that much of a boost.

You would see a much better boost going with a Socket 478 Penitum 4, 3gz, 800mhz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache, for 46 bucks.

Hey Cobra, Thank you for your reply. I may consider getting the 46 dollar Pentium 4 3 GHz but I want to make my Dell into a Terminal Server, so which processor would be good for this operation?

The processor I showed you will be if you are going to host multiple, simultaneous client sessions. It will be able to handle it better then the weaker ones. Plus the Pentuim 4 3ghz has Hyperthreading, but your motherboard has to support hyperthreading to enable this feature and the programs that you are using have to support it as well to take full advantage of it. XP and Vista both support Hypethreading.

If it's broke, then blow that sucka up!

Hey if you want to know something about the Dell B110 and the Celeron to P4 upgrade check it out. I have one of these systems, they come stock with the Celeron 2.5, 2.7 processor w/2-256 400MHz memory. I looked in the BIOS when I upgraded to 1GB of 400MHz ram. I called Dell Tech and asked why the BIOS were locked down in the memory to 266MHz the Tech told me that to unlock the memory settings you had to install a P4 cpu [800 FSB] not 533 like the Celeron has. Once you go with the P4 your memory should be able to unlock and run at 400MHz if thats what you have installed. I guess it was the stock memory. I just found a 2.54 P4 cpu and will let you know if it worked. If so I wont feel like I purchased a piece of [U fill in the blank] danmax
