    Celeron Server, Bad Idea?

    I have heard that Celeron's make bad servers? Is this true? I have never used a Celeron server before, only a P4. I am getting a second server though and I am torn about which to go with. Can someone give me the pros and cons of each? I use my servers to host 75-100 medium bandwidth people that use alot of PHP and MySQL databases. Will both of these servers be able to handle that? Can someone tell me what the deal is with Celeron Servers? Are they a bad idea? Will they run just as good as the AMD or what? Should I just go with a P4? Pros and cons of each please....

    Choices(assume bandwidth is all equal, all running Linux):

    Celeron 2.53 GHz
    1 GB DDR-2
    1 x 80 GB Serial ATA / 7200 RPM

    AMD Athlon XP 2200
    1 GB DDR-2
    1 x 80 GB Serial ATA / 7200 RPM

    Pentium 4 2.8 GHz
    1 GB DDR-2 RAM
    1 x 80 GB Serial ATA / 7200 RPM

    Any and all help is appreciated.

    I will vote for the P4 2.8 unless there is a XP 3000, then I'd get the 3000.

    All the servers above may or may not fit what you need. It depends on trial and error. From the looks, 1 GB RAM should be sufficient.

    Actually, my personal choice would be an AMD64 3000 if your going to be doing alot of PHP/MySQL type stuff. There's a very decent offer from Netivex in the Offers forum in case you want to check it out.

    celerons are pretty ok.

    but if you're doing a lot of database stuff, you'll want all the processing power you can get.
