hello developers,

just wanted to know ur experience on the topic of "which processor really

my requirements are simple:

	-mostly php-mysql
	-occasionally vb-sql server
	-some web design work (text editor, photoshop)
	-maybe flash/java
os: win-lin dual-boot
gaming: no
video editing: no

do u think a celeron would suffice for this kind of development? i always
thought why spend more when a cheaper option may work, but never really took
the risk!
now i'm however seriously evaluating the cheaper option, ~1700 vs ~5000

i would like to know your *experience, not just opinion* of using celeron
(or sempron for that matter) for not-so-heavyweight development. pls also
share ur experience with AMD processors. do they really get hot??

thanks in advance,
