I tend to disagree about the PIV vs Celeron.

I understand to have a smaller L2 cache which considerably effects performance.
I could be incorrect with this, but I have seen much anecdotal evidence to back this up.
I would suggest investigating some legitamate benchmark tests, Im sure there are plenty of comparisons on the net.

The $ difference between PIV and Cel are not that great.
I would never buy a Celeron over PIV.
