Is Celeron really that bad? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I can vouche to say that I have a celeron 2.8GHz (But basically running at 2.0GHz since the "stepping" is not supported and needs something to make the mobo recognize it) with a radeon 7500. There's nothing wrong with it, I get around 45-60FPS in CS Source on low settings. I bought the 2.8GHz cpu for $35.

yeah, for the price you can't beat it. I built my brother's rig for 250.
mobo
celly D 2.66
512mb corsair value
asus mobo- micro atx w/ ati radeon express 200 graphics
aspire x-dreamer II case (lucked out and got the case for free cause it had a crack in the front panel from shipping.

my bro already had an 80 gig hd, monitor, keyboard, speakers and mouse.

well he mailed the computer to me... I'll take a look at it, get the 6600GT in it, maybe OC a bit... put my old corsair xms 3200C2PT in it so he'll have a gig. add a couple fans... and he'll have the best budget computer I've made!
