    I've got a Celeron 2.4 with a 9200SE card, 1 gig of ram. What should I upgrade first, the processor or the video card, to allow me to play HL2/Doom3?

    video card....

    your vid card is more of a bottle neck than the celery, right now.

    Assuming I upgrade to a better video card, is it worth upgrading to a P4 with the same socket? It's a long story how I ended up with this rig, parts of it are good (P4P800, PC3200), the processor not so much - neither is the video card.
