a cheap Athlon XP or Sempron system would do nicely

Well, the boys up top pretty much pointed out exactly what the specs were. The celeron dominates... I think it'll do better for gaming either way.


<b>I'm an unhyphenated American.</b>
System Specs:
Intel Q6600 @ 3200 1.4v
Abit IP35 Pro "The Snake"
2x2gb A-Data @ 800
Diamond HD 3870 512mb

Great FORD TRUCK resource:

I'd go with the Celeron.

EDIT: The Celeron also runs cooler than the Duron and has a much better stock hs/f. The CPU itself is also a lot more durable.
for once, amd fanboys need to shut up... the celeron wins this round...

if you are limited to only these two systems, then the celeron might even be better for gameing...

the duron would be comparable to a celeron @ 2.8Ghz...

Sad but true, I love AMD but you got to look at the facts here.
