It would suck without a good motherboard you won't have good performance.Dude I got a Celeron 1.7 Ghz and it runs fine(Meaning It ran some high configuration games).Anyway this may look good to ya if you want an Intel configuration:

Pentium 4 2.4/2.5/2.6 Ghz w/Ht Technology A motherboard that supports 800 FSB.

I dont want to put intel down, but if you play games amd is still is faster.... And like the person above me sed, a faster cpu is useless without a good motherboard.
