Your problem is too little RAM & onboard graphics...not to mention you own an HP...LOL!

You should have at least 512MB RAM, with many gamers recommending 1GB...plus you need a "real" video card - preferrably one that supports DX9 & has at least 128MB/128-bit memory

Asus A7N8X-X
1800+ @ 8 x 210MHz
768MB PC3200
Asus A9550 128MB/128-bit
Gamer Edition
WinME/WinXP Pro

That shows you that the 2.8GHz based on the Prescott is a respectable CPU. However, yours is significantly slower in bus speed, so it's not gonna scream, but it should get the job done. Go get some RAM and a video card, and you should be ok.

celeron vs P4, its hard to tell by words. you have to see differences by yourself. i have experiment it, both same machine, same ram, same hardware, everything, but the CPU. 1 is 2.5ghz celeron and 1 is 2.4ghz p4. P4 runs smoother in games and any video/image program, its much better. but i still think AMD FX 64 is the best for gaming. 2.4ghz AMD fx 64 gets 104 score while the new 3.73GHZ Pentium 4 EE (duel-core with HT on) only gets 102 score.

P4 3.2GHZ
kingstone 1GB DDR 3200

Nvidia geforce FX 5950 Ultra 256mb

by the way, just in case you confuse, P4 EE means Pentium 4 extreme edition, not dual-core.also, there is a new Pentium coming out called Pentium D, you might wanna check that out.
