a 2.8GHZ Celeron will be quite enough to run games like Half-Life 2, depending on the graphics card
Celeron's are not bad, they just don't quite perform the same as Pentium's
Thank you apokalipse,it's about time somebody kind of stick's up for celeron's
,OnlyCurious if you are planning on picking up a celeron make sure it's the new D serie's,the D serie's is based on the presscott core with a bigger 533 fsb and 256kb cache compared to the old 400 fsb and 128kb cache,and the best part is they kept the same low price as the old one's.
