Bargain cpu

To add to what other posters mentioned, let me say in layman's term, "the VW of cpus" It gets you from A to Z, w/o fancy overhead but don't expect a geewhiz factor, it just gets the job done on the cheap. Wink

AMD Sempron

CPUs on the low cost. Basicaly Semprons are the older 32 bit socket A Athlons with a new lable.
There are versions that are socket 754 and offer higher front end buss speeds but are still 32 bit. The 3100+
is $112 at newegg. But for $124 at newegg you could get the AMD64 2800+.
Two years ago I built a PC with a AMD Athlon 2400+. A few months ago I did another one for a friend who wanted to keep the cost low, used a Sempron 2400+. The only difference between the two is the cost of the processor.

socket a socket 754

In reply to: AMD Sempron:what are its strengths and weaknesses

The socket A version is really a renamed athlon xp with a 333MHZ front side bus and 400 points added to its model number.

The Socket 754 version is and Athlon 64 with lower cache and no 64-bit extensions.

However, AMD IS MAKING 64-bit semprons and should be coming out around July 30, according to xbitlabs.com
