Dude DONT... Celerons peform very poorly. I know because I used to have a 2.6GHz and my AMD Athlon Xp 1800+ out peforms it by at least 4x. And also that system would have no video card so it would be running off onboard video. A celeron with onboard video, I dont wanna imagine it. and also DONT GET A DELL. They are poorly built and a rip off, for the most power for the least amount of money you are better off building a system. Or if you cannot build it get someone you know or a computer store might build it for you for free. Try this system for newegg.

CPU: Amd Athlon 64 3200+ S939 512KB L2 Cache - $61

MB: ASUS A8N-E Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX - $49

GFX: ASUS EAX1300PRO/TD/256M Radeon X1300PRO 128-bit GDDR2 - $68

HDD: Western Digital Caviar SE WD1200JS 120GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA - $48

RAM: G.SKILL 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) - $47

Case: CHENMING 301KEB-0-0 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower - $34

PSU: LOGISYS Computer PS550ABK ATX12V 550Watts Power Supply - $21

OS: Windows Xp Home Edition -$89

KB&Mouse: Logitech 967973-0403 Black 104 Normal Keys PS/2 Standard Deluxe 250 - $13

Total: $430

That system is ALOT better than that celeron system. and could play COD2, BF2 etc
