This is for very light use. Mostly surfing the internet and listening to music. Maybe sorting some photos. What do you think?

You could get a better processor I think. How fast is that Celeron? I have an old LGA775 P4 with Hyper-Threading clocked @ 2.8GHz. I don't know how it compares to Celeron, but I can sell it to you cheap if you want. It may not even be worth spending money on an used processor. Just get like a low-end dual-core.

I agree with the others, get a different processor like a P4, C2D or Athlon/x2.

An Athlon 64 X2 would be the best value coupled with a 780G board.

that board is about 60

the process is about 30.

i think you should spend 60 on the CPU and 30 on the Mobo.

I'm assuming his already got these parts because it wouldn't make sense for him to buy a Celeron. What I would do is shell out some more for a low end C2D.

I got the processor for $30. It's for my sister. She just checks her mail, updates her iPod, and takes a bunch of pictures. I don't have the money/need to get a C2D. I think the Celeron should do fine with XP. I just wanted to make sure if it's o.k. for browsing and stuff. I don't want to spend $90 more for a processor she isn't going to need.
