    Celeron is weaker cousin of Intel Pentium with same core, usually missing part of the cache. Practically speaking, it's partially unsuccessful core re-branded "Celeron" so they don't have to throw i out.

I'm currently using Win 7-64bit, 2X2GB, 180GB SSD, AMD 945 quad core, 880G motherboard. Think of getting the Win 8 upgrade, new 4 (4170) or 6 core AMD cpu, 970 motherboard. Would Win 8 make it worth it to get a 6 core cpu, or should I just get a faster 4 core processor (4170)?
