the athlon.

athlon to sempron is like p4 to celeron. the celerons and semprons are a crippled version of the athlon and p4, they just have like no cache.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

^^^ Yep. A 2500+ Athlon would outperform a 2800+ Sempron easily.
