I posted a thread in the consumer watch forum asking where i could get a cheap (refurbished) pentium II/III base unit. I was just wandering whether buying a pentium III would be worth the extra cash over the pentium II. I really only want it to play counterstrike on over LAN. (already got a decent'ish' pc). Any advise would be great, as would places to get the best deals from!

hmmm.....thanks for the links but could you tell me whats the power difference between pentium 2/3. Also will i be able to put an AGP graphics card into the system.....say a geforce 4 ti4200.

Whether or not you can put in an AGP card will depend on the mobo; if you know the machine model, you may be able to find a spec sheet on the manufacturer site.

There wont be a hell of a lot of difference between a pentium 2/3 and i would think they would run an agp card but prolly only x4 agp ones.

I would suggest going for the Pentium 3 seeing as it is actually better than the Pentium 2 (obviously) and it would make it easier for any other programs or games you may want to install as well.
