With all other things being equal, how do these two CPUs compare... Celeron 700MHz vs. K6-2+ 550 @ 600MHz... the motherboard provides no way for the Celeron to be overclocked... the Soyo AMD board is better than the e-machine board the Celeron comes on...

Celeron 700 MHz is faster, especially in games and FPU intensive apps

Celeron 700 has a stronger FPU and will probably perform better in games. K6-2 has a much higher bus speed with much better memory bandwidth, and will probably do better in memory bandwidth intense applications like large spreadsheets and databases.

My wife has started to notice exactly how many computer cases I have swtacked up... and some just have to go... the e-machine with a 700MHz Celeron seems like a keeper for a while, especially because I still have a pci GF2...

I found a local community college that would take old scavenged parts, fix them up as part of class then ship them to less afflent areas of the world. (Just an idea in case you are planning on trashing the old systems).

Ya, I know what you mean... It came with only 64MB of ram... it is the 120W psu that just scares me... I have 128MB of ram in it now with 98SE and my old PCI GF2... The 20GB HDD and 4xDVD/CDRW are in better computers already, so it is down to a CD-Rom, and a 4GB HDD... I willl likely add another 4GB HDD... it will be a great 4th or 5th computer for playing a LAN game like Icewind Dale... but I still cannot believe the psu... and it is hard to add one in there because the emachines fit so differently...

That quantispeed architecture that allowed amds to push more info per clock did not kick in till the athlon xp line. So that k6-2 pushed the same amount of info per clock as the celeron. That celeron will be slightly better.
