Nope. I'd be skeptical if it's worth the extra few quid to go for
PentiumIII over Celeron. Since www.overclockers.co.uk are selling 366Mhz
celerons gauranteed to run at 550Mhz/100Mhz bus for #79 (sterling/ex vat).
Celerons are certainly faster at games with main loops of less than 128K,
seeing as the L2 cache runs at core speed, unlike the PII/PIII which runs
at half core speed.
