    Doesn't really matter - The celeron is about as fast as a Pentium 3 1GHz for most apps, probably faster.  You shouldn't have any problem related to the CPU if you get this card.

    Hi techempire,

    Doesn't matter. The Celeron is a tuned down version of the Pentium, mainly reduced in cache memmory.
    In fact, the Celeron 1.4 can be considered a PIII as it has the same amount of cache used in the older Pentium III processors.
