Long story short. I have a very ill relative in hospital and to 'cheer' up her kids i've decided to upgrade the family PC so they can distract themselves a little!
I'm replacing Windows XP MCE with Windows 7. I've got spare DDR2 Ram to get it from 512MB to 2GB and i've got a spare PCI-Express Graphics Card but the Processor is terrible!
My question is:
They currently have a HP Pavilion Media Center a1615 with a Celeron D 352 3.2 GHz Processor. I am tempted to get them a PENTIUM D 3.4 GHZ but i'm worried the stock cooler won't be adequate as i know the Pentium D's run quite hot!

Celeron D are the same size cooler as Pentium D (dual core), iv`e just looked at an old box which has a 3GHz Pentium D with stock cooler running at 42C.
Should give them a reasonable boost in performance, especially with the included graphics card.
By the way, good on yaGo to the full post
