Personally, I'd go for a lower clocked Pentium with a Northwood core if you
can find one. Admittedly, they're like rocking horse poo, but you'll end up
with a cooler chip that'll be equally powerful to a 2GHz celery. According
to newegg, a 2GHz celery'll cost you twice as much as a 2.2GHz P4. Argh!
If money is an object, a celery'll do you fine, but don't expect it to be
any good at media encoding and compiling and other multimedia related
stuff. For TV playback (HDTV excepted) it's more than adequate.
