    I have an old G2K 300se that I have resurrected for secondary UO use. I am looking for opinions on what I should do with the machine.

    Current specs
    Celeron 1.2 Tualatin GHz socket 370 100MHz FSB
    128 MB PC100

    Here is what I want to do

    option 1
    Overclock the celeron to 1.6 GHz(stability wise, as fast as I would go for this chip)

    Option 2
    Tualatin Intel Pentium III 1.4 GHz( same L1 cache as Celeron, but has 256 KB of L2 cache)


    -----

    I am going to get 2x 256MB PC133(mb supports it), 168Pin DIMMs to max out the memory.


    Does anyone think that spending the $10-15 extra to get the PIII is worth it?

    um ...

    so you would clock that via dipswitches on the mobo ?

    if i'm not mistaken, that would clock your memory as well.

    I would get the PIII.

    Yes I would be using the dip switches for that.

    Thank you for the reply.
