crap, sorry


If you plan to use it for gaming then ya it won't be that good. For simple stuff like the internet, messenging etc, it will be fine and should work well.


You do know that the Celeron is a low cut version of the Pentium D and 4 right? I'm having trouble running Itunes, firefox and AIM on a P4 @3.4ghz.
