sorry guys...didnt respond in some time, well the currency is £ GBP...and idealy i think he would like the system to be an internet browsing system which can do a little more if you get me, so if his son does decide to stick a game on it, it will play it....just a bog standard family pc! but also i was thinking i could overclock it for him to give him the little extra...soo im still looking, he should be giving me the money by the end of this month or next month and then he wants me to crack on with it

After doing a bit of research for you on which two of those listed systems would be best I would have to say the AMD check out this LINK
They are comparing p4's with clock speeds almost the same as the celeron you listed. And the AMD is still doing quite well... If its keeping up with p4's @ 2.5 which would kill any celeron @ 2.6 then clearly the AMD is the better choice. As it would destroy that celeron. (losts of killing and destroying )
if it was my choice I would take the AMD and never look back. Also if overclocked that AMD could compete with p4 @ 2.8 and possibly higher. In some of the tests its even beating the 2.8 when its still at stock speeds
Hope this helps
