You may want to check out <A HREF="http://www.anandtech.com/cpu/showdoc.html?i=1927" target="_new">this</A> review to find out yourself. But those guys who replied here earlier should be about right. In the review that I gave you, the Athlon XP 1700+ (1466MHz) is ahead of the Celeron 2.6GHz by a huge margin, so I believe a 1.1~1.2GHz Athlon should match a Celeron 2500 in performance for gaming.
Thanks guys. I thought that it might be equal to a AMD 1.6 1.7 but oh well. Fry's Electronics don't have a good deal on any AMD 2.4 right now. But they do on a Celeron 2.5 Guess I will wait. Thanks
Celerons are for people who don't know anything about computers except how to use a couple programs, and are unwilling to learn about them at all.

I can send you my old AMD K6-2 233MHz, you should have about the performance of the 2.5 GHz Celeron.
Avoid buying ANY Celeron, get an Athlon XP or Pentium 4 to get DECENT performance in gaming and productivity apps.
I REPEAT : DO NOT BUY Celeron. Celeron are NOT good at all. Even for CHEAP systems, AMD offers a lot more for the same price or even lower prices!
