Would this processor be good enough for gaming? Currently I have 1 gig of ram but on the way too 3 gigs and I am needing to know if this will be good for gaming or atleast sufficient? thanks in advance.

fair test is to try it with the setup you have when you install your new memory, not a gamer but i would say its fast enough..

I think it's a Celeron

This may be a dumb question but I do not know alot on CPU's, but is that a bad thing being a Celeron?

Its a Slow P4

that should be ok for games, they have changed model number as D used to be for Celeron

It's old & slow.

In short, no, it won't be good enough for todays games. Fine for checkers, not so fine for Crysis.

It really depends what type of games you want to play.

Its not a celeron its a dual core pentium the "in between" CPU between the P4 and core 2 duo. Do you know what motherboard you are using? That processor will run most of todays games but at minimum spec as long as you have a good graphics card with at least 256mb memory.

Check the system requirements for whatever game you have in mind. Assuming you've got a half way decent graphics card it'll be fine for most of the stuff you can buy, but as has already been stated some of the newer stuff will strain it.
