shure you can. though lets me put this quite clear: the Celeron is not a good CPU to game on.

 

also mining in this day and age? the graze stopped ages ago and very few induviduals continue it due to the high ROI time

The Celeron G530 is a 7 year old dual core. It's not really suitable for gaming, you will experience heavy CPU limitations with it in games.

 

I don't think that the mining rig is going to be profitable with current crypto prices. You can however use the RX580 for Folding@home or BOINC to help scientific research.

the celeron is a dual core 2.4GHz processor, you'll be most likely bottlenecked hard but some gaming is still doable
