Athlon 2600+ (thoroughbred) vs. Sempron 3000 Both Socket A
I need to upgrade my comp. Current spec: Athlon XP 2600+ (2144Mhz), Aopen AK77-600GN, 1gb Corsiar RAM, ATI 9800 PRO (AGP).
I can only really afford to upgrade my proc, so what i'm really asking is "Is a Socket A Sempron 3000 (2.17Ghz) any better than my 2600, and if so, is it significantly better?"
Can't find much in the way of comparisons on the net anywhere, so any help would be appreciated.
PS. Tried OCing the Athlon and it'll only get as far as 2208Mhz, so no luck there!!
PPS. Anyone know how well Skt A Semprons OC? (Generally)
Don't ask questions, just click my rep tick. Now.
