    until now i havn't had good a sound or video card, so i went out to the computer fair and bought a creative 128 sound card, and a S3 savage4 16mb, but now whenever i play games (half life,guake 3,kingpin) it freezes in the middle of them and i have to restart, what could it be?

    Are you overclocking the celeron, you say [email protected] 300, you mean 300 @ 400???

    If so drop it back to default and try it. Overclocking the processor also overclocks the agp bus that the video card uses. Most cards don't like that agp bus overclocked very much
