Thumbs up Intel Celeron vs AMD XP 2000

I am building a new PC and i have two MOBOs.

One currently has an AMD XP 2000 on it and the other has a celeron on it. I believe the AMD is 2.0 GHZ/1.6 GHZ (it gave two measurements), and the celeron is 1.4GHZ

Which one would be an all around better processor/motherboard choice?

Another thing, I have RAM that works with my intel mobo, but it does NOT work with the AMD one. So is it worth using the AMD one and buying some ram?

Thanks

Hai, Par the cheap ram bit NEVER buy cheap ram, You can get a stick of 512 for 35-50 or two sticks of 256 for 40

The Celeron could still be used. Wouldn't be cool to have two PCs?

just as a question, how noticeable do you think the difference btw the celeron and the amd would be?
