    C2D E2140 waste of time or bargain at £50??

    hi i found a E2140 on ebuyer.com for 50 quid and was just wondering what you guys think about it. My younger brother wants to play better games and his celeron system obvioulsy isnt cut out for more than paint, just wondering if itll hold up playing some better games??? Cheers

    6420 for £99? not anywhere trustworthy. For £50 it will be an absolute steal as long as it overclocks like its bigger bro's.
