Er, I'm not sure I follow this, are you saying a celeron will cost me
more or less ?
If I understand you correctly  you're saying I'd be best aiming for a
2Ghz Pentium Northwood, rather than a 2.8 Celeron?

Money's *always* an object, but I don't want to buy /over/  my
requirements as this box will purely be a myth box,  I have plenty of
other machines for compiling/working on :)
