In side by side testing, the loading of any application for the first instance is about 8 seconds difference for things like Word, Excel, FrameWorks, Outlook. For things...
The 2.4ghz celeron running at 400fsb and the slow 512MB of ram they bought in the system are way slower than a 533fsb and faster pc2700 RAM of the same size.
I have a bunch ASUS motherboard based system with 512MB PC2700 RAM, Celeron 2.54Ghz, and a video card that feels (to all users) to be about twice as fast with opening-closing, running Word and Excel, pulling data out of a dedicated SQL application, and even browsing the web. The difference is the chipset and base speeds of the parts.
I fully expect the P4-533 and the PC2700 RAM to feel faster by leaps and bounds. The 2500 already had 512MB in it, but it was slow as heck. I have older Optiplex 100 systems with a Celeron 433 chip and 256MB of ram, with XP Prof that perform just as fast as the base 2400.
