Both of which would be suitable, but what is the better value processor. The Celeron is cheaper but features only two cores and the Athlon X4 has four cores. (I know there's architectural differences, but it may be relevant at this price point. ) The X4 can OC, but the Celeron cannot. The Celeron is cheaper and has superior single core speeds, but is now on a dying socket. (LGA 1151 Skylake to Kaby Lake), but the Athlon is on the AM4 socket, which is going to be supported until 2020.
Tasks being done:
Mostly web browsing, netflix and youtube. Most intensive game played, at the moment, is Sims 4.
I don't know which CPU to go for, honestly.
