If you weren't hard set on the celeron e1500, then I would suggest getting the wolfdale I sent you. That wolfdale is better than the cpu I have on my "gaming computer"; it will be perfect for your needs.

Also in the future if you need more performance out if it, you can overclock that thing majorly, and the 1 MB of cache compared to 512 KB won't be as crippling.

Ultimately it depends on what you actually think you need out of your system, for me that wolfdale is probably as good if not better than any cpu I currently have on any of my machines, but for some on this board they would probably laugh at its lack of power (compared to an core i7 and the like).
