Moving to Consumers forum..

As to your question, unless you specify what machines will be used for, its not likely that you will get the answer you are expecting.

If you need the computers to carry out multiple tasks at once (using them as small web servers or something similar) then the Celeron is definitely not the way to go as they aren't very good for multitasking (yes I own one).

For regular CPU intensive applications I would recommend P4, AMD, then Celeron. If they are going to simply used for daily office operations such as M$ Word, M$ Excel, email, surfing the net, etc, Celeron will perform fine for those purposes and at a big price break as well. The machine you mentioned above you should be able to get monitor and all for around $500 in parts in the US (minus the OS).
