Default Intel Celeron?

How does this processor compare to a Pentium Dual Core? Not worth having at all? Or will a certain AMD one run better?

A Celeron Dual core is pretty much a Pnetium Dual Core with less cache and a lower clock speed.

At a Celeron Dual cores price AMD would probably be a better option.

What is your budget and what do you plan on doing with the system?

I play a bit of Gunz and WC3 from time to time. Not much else.

And There are plenty of rebates too in there.

Yes i cut and pasted 50% of this build from another one of my recommendations but it suites you to a T since your not doing anything overly demanding but still want to be ready for new games.
