Default Planning an upgrade (kind off anyway)

ok here is my position , i have just been given an asus P4S 533-VM fo absoloutley nothing the board has a celeron on it but if the answe to my question rules in favour of it i am going to get a P4 chip for this board

My question is will my current system which is
Amd athlon xp 2000+ with 512mb sdram be better than a pentinum 4 2.4ghz with 512mb ddr ram
if the intel p4 would be better does anyone know the highest chip this board can take , i read in the manual it can take a 2.53 but has asus release any bios revisions to allow higher cpu support becasue if so i will go with a higher cpu
basically which processor is better is my question
the athlon xp 2000+ or a P4 min speed 2.4ghz

many thanks in advance

The Pentium 4 would be faster.

Yeah, I think 2.53 is the highest that board can go.

nah i just checked and if i update the bios it can handle a 2.8ghz P4 as the highest from the latest bios rev although i might just go for a 2.4 anyway
