I currently have a celeron D 360 3.46G and have a friend who is willing to give me a pentium D 925 3.0 G, would it be a good idea to switch my celeron for the Pentium D?

The Pentium is dual core, has more cache and uses the 200/800 fsb.
On the other hand, it runs a lot hotter, so dont try using your celery hsf on it. Spend a few bucks to get a decent after market unit. The stock one, that came with the chip have a tendency to loosen off.
Make sure you have great case ventilation, and expect your room to get a few degrees warmer.

Change to the Pentuim D then try and swap the Celeron for a Core 2 (must be a newbie) and tell them "More GHZ = More performance" (lie)
heh, mean and cruel, but i would do the same...definetly "upgrade" to the Pent D and then get a new hsf for ~30$ or so. it should make your whole system feel much faster than using that celery.
