Yes, they are pretty good. If you plan to get one, get this one. But for $40 more you could get this one.

Cell. an amd 2500+ will perform the best for you. the 2800+ is also a good choice but in my books not enough to justify the money. If you want me to explain their architecture i can but i dont think it will help you non.
