I would have thought we were all old enough to realise; but if we wish to look at any benchmarks even gaming ones Celeron D 2.8 (most don't have 2.9 on) is only 14 Frames down from the XP3200 on Quake III 640, only 20 behind on Quake III 1280, and so on with the Graphics Marks, it goes without saying but its a Budget PC obviously; and not only will he not see the difference in the Frame Rates but he's not going to want games all the time when for the price and power he could get a Console so much easier and better for less.
This is so freaking ridiculous I'm starting to laugh. You need to grow up and learn you can't always win. The Celeron is the lost cause. You are the lost cause. Benchmarks prove my case and they always do. You know what your problem is? You deny facts. And you're also a liar too.

think, Giancarlo obviously doesn't, that the Celeron D is more than worth it. Especially taking into account that the only other option they've given you is to keep your 3200, which pushes back motherboard and ram upgrades which would also be useful. Maybe eventually they'll try and help you instead of bringing up their own agenda, you might even be lucky and they'll bring up an alternative that makes sense...
The Celeron D isn't worth anything. It is a piece of garbage. Celeron is a stripped down version and shows you have no common sense. Alternative? You can't recommend junk. Junk isn't an alternative.

Well then if my recommendation and my alternative are offensive to you - rather than get all hyped up why not try and help him by giving a recommendation of your own? So far all you've done in this thread is say my recommendation is wrong; which would be fine on its own if you gave an alternative to my recommendation.

Theres Pros and Cons about Both Processors, One Processor is faster, the other is better for Gaming, but Im not buying a new CPU, its not worth the extra money if it work with my games as good.

Well then if you're paying that area of money and still want a new CPU get the 520. If you're happy with the motherboard and CPU there really is no point in upgrading - certainly not if you're just going to want it for gaming.
