how much are you will to spend on it? That is by far the most important piece of information we need.
And a celeron? What are you on? You need atleast a good dual core for gaming, and a celeron does not qualify as good.
You'll need to set a budget and do a bit better on the purchase date
^ I think he hasn't caught up with computer components since the P4 days when the celeron D's were a steal.
I'm willing to spend around $500-$1000. Purchase time : In the next two years.
PS: Yeah I'm kinda in the caveman age still, since my computer at the moment is a Dell Optiplex GX210.
uhh yeah, about that purchase time, if you arent buying within the next 3 weeks its not worth parting stuff out since in a couple months new CPUs and GPUs are due out. Come back when you have a firm budget and are going to be purchasing within a month, tech changes to fast to even contemplate what might be a good value in even 4 months let alone 2 years
We can't really advise you on parts because everything will be different in two years
If you have a look at my guide, linked in my sig or stickied at the top of the forum, you'll get a quick update on what to use these days.
