- Your celeron probably killed at least half the frames the 7800gs can produce
- It can be you ram, if its not dual channel then set it back down to 1 gig
- could be a driver issue too, if its a pentium 4 your running check that

Definitely man, toss the celeron, get a P4, you can get a 3 ghz for pretty cheap nowadays with 1 MB L2 cache.
