  1. Hi guys, I intend on purchasing a new PC late next year, but for now since I have these two crappy ones to choose from, can I have your opinion on which one should perform better for playing games. Crap PC no.1, Gateway Performance P3 933, 133fsb, max 512mb pc 100/133 SDRAM, AGP G4 Ti4600, XP Home or crap PC no.2, e-machines P4 1.8 Celeron, 400fsb, max 2GB 200/266 DDR SDRAM, PCI only ATI 9100 PCI (best PCI card?), XP Home. Nice choices eh? Oh well for now, so which one? Thanks

    ....Aaahhh forget it, they both suck! :D

    Id get the Gateway. Even though the Celeron has a higher clock speed the P3 is a better performer. Also the TI 4600 beats the crap out of a PCI 9100 especially if its the built in 9100. Yu might even be able to OC the P#.

    Start here for a comparison on the processor speed - the celeron will beat out that PIII 933

    As far as that 4600 vs the 9100 I really couldn't tell you. A guess on my part would say the 4600 would win out in most if not all cases.
