it should work for a budget machine. If you can spend a little more, there's the AMD Athlon 64 2800+ at $124. I was looking at it for a budget machine for my cousin.

It'll work. It's not great, but hey, a 64 bit processor for 75 bucks, who's arguing with that?

Ya, I'm getting my friend the 2500 for his uber budget gaming comp. I'd stay away from the 2600 as it only has a 128mb chache, but the 2800 is a good buy.

I'm using a non 64bit sempron 3000 for this laptop and it runs stuff great. The quality difference between the athalons and the semprons isn't as bad as pentiums and celerons.
