with its versatile NVIDIA nForce2 chipset,
kind of an oxymoron there, save your money for nforce 4, or 3. 3 will still be cheap, but much better performance even with agp.

An Athlon would be better than the sempron, but it's obviously more expensive.

Personally, I would take the sempron over the celeron, because AMD is known to be better for gaming.

Hope that helps.
