Sound like a silly question but what would be quicker?
I have a dual I just grabbed but my main is a p4. The Pentium is not hyper threading.

Ok I understand it low end. Which is better though a single core pentium or Dual core celeron

Reason I'm asking is because I was unable to get a benchmark comparison of the two.

a dual core can handle more work load. example if you virusprogram start sheduled scan when you work on something, you wont notice

The largest boost in performance will likely be noticed in improved response-time while running CPU-intensive processes, like antivirus scans, ripping/burning media (requiring file conversion), or searching for folders. For example, if the automatic virus-scan runs while a movie is being watched, the application running the movie is far less likely to be starved of processor power, as the antivirus program will be assigned to a different processor core than the one running the movie playback.

Well in this cold weather an old Pentium 4 would be good for heating your house, they were notorious for running hot. I would just wonder if the Two are even pin compatible as the Celeron E1200 is a much newer processor and may be using a different CPU socket.

Edit: Pentium 4 socket 478 & Celeron E1200 socket 775, so they aren't compatible if you are thinking of upgrading a pentium 4 to the Celeron e1200

Only -3c right now was -5c and my CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E8300  @ 2.83GHz   24 °C, so not much heat coming from there.

I wish I was in Norway right now, I could get some decent MuckLucs or felt tent boots, my feet are frozen.

Winter boots, something I remember from my time in the Army on Arctic survival training in Norway. An Inuit word I believe (totally mis-spelt no doubt ;D

Weirdly enough yes the two are compaitable as they are both  Socket 775 LGA (Thanks to you guys for the amazing program- Speccy)
And either or I can just transfer the Processor over with the motherboard that came with it its an Asus P5VD2-VM SE
Thank you all for helping me try and figure out whether is better.

Must be a later pentium4 then, lucky.

I was really shocked when I opened it up myself as I always seen pentium 4 as a male processor (with pins) but mine is flat with metal connectors.
