Default All protools/computer experts help

So, I bought this cpu on ebay that I thought to have pretty decent specs. Keep in mind I donot see myself as being a computer guy. Anyway, I bought this cpu to handle an mbox 2 and intesive plug-ins/vst usage. Here is a link to the computer


The problem now is taht it really cant handle all the effect and vst's that I try to run. Please let me know your ideas on this. Do I need a whole new CPu? Are there any upgrades that would be cheaper?
Thanks a lot,

It's a Celeron. Celerons have never been, and probably never will be, compatible with Pro Tools.

You need to read the mBox 2 Compatibility page, especially the Desktop PC compatibility link, and the first post in the Best Desktops for PTLE and purchase a computer that is compatible and recommended.
