Talking neat to try..

wouldnt it be neat to try to build a celeron gaming machine?

use a top-of-the-line celeron processor, and use the best PC components available?

i know the celeron may produce some lagging, but with the best video card, 512 MB, a 500 W power supply, and water cooling, it might just play some good games!

it'll be a pretty good waste of money. Those celerons aren't just slow, they're prone to crashes. They start grabbing at memory they don't have and lock up. Good luck with that though. And a friendly reminder from another thread, you'll want to reduce your sig size pretty fast... I don't know how long before the sig police will get you.
