90 dollars can get you a second hand 6600GT easy. If you shop around you can find the DFI ultra-d motherboard for 90 dollars, and is S939.

the DFI NF4 series boards do support SLI.

Sempron's are different to Celerons. their P-rating does actually tell you how they perform. AMD has the P-rating for a reason.

a 3GHZ Celeron will perform less than a 3GHZ P4, howerver a 3000+ Sempron will perform about the same as a 3000+ Athlon 64. and the Sempron's are cheaper.

Athlon 64's are the better CPU's, however Semprons are still great if you don't have much to spend.
