Yes VERY VERY light gaming. I have a AMD 64 +3200 with a GeForce 6600 and it runs pretty good. I aslo bought a Celeron 2.93ghz (Emachines) for $150 with a 17" CRT monitor included. I got it on Black Friday from Best Buy.
I threw in a GeForce MX4000 128mb PCI Card and games still run like crap. Even though it is a crappy card, don't even think about getting a Celeron. I couldn't even run Adobe Photoshop CS2 and I have 768mb of ram. The processor is pretty useless. That is why I'm thinking about just putting a P4 inside of the mobo.
Matter fact, if you want, you can take a look at my thread below. I think its called "Upgrading the Processor". You can see what I'm going through. I think my CPU specs are in there 2. Hope it helps. Peace!
