You don't want to try building a gaming system around a celeron. It looks like that system comes standard with a p41 chipset. So you can get Core 2 Duos, and Quads. They would be much better for gaming, and wouldn't bottleneck a graphics upgrade as much.

Keep in mind, it's a slim tower. You're not going to have much room in there for upgrades. Not to mention, a standard ATX PSU, likely will not fit.

I think you want a standard ATX tower with a quad core processor, and dual PCIe 16X slots.

thanks for esponding, Is there a difference between dual core and 2 core duo? i think i am gonna stick with the this graphics card that i have at the moment which will not affect the psu right? and will only upgrade the ram to 2gig or 4gig, is the ram upgrade possible in this system? thanks again and the system is 2 core duo(i said dual core because i thought they were the same things)

Core 2 duos are newer architecture, have faster FSBs, and more cache. If you stay with the stock graphics package, you'll be fine with that PSU.
