Maybe you remember the first price/performance index back in May when we took a look at the Pentium III. I did exactly the same this time, with actual CPU prices from pricewatch.com.
I created the index values as follows: Quake III Benchmark results as seen on the pages before / CPU price (average CPU price from pricewatch.com). To get better results, I multiplied the result with 100.
You can see that all Celeron CPUs provide most performance for your money. Of course you won't get exciting frame rates, but it will be enough for most games.
