Default Amd athlon, sempron, pentium4 etc.

Just a question, which processors in order 1st to last are best for gaming/multitasking Amd Athlon, Amd sempron, Intel pentium 4, Intel celeron D. And since I'm soon going to get a Amd sempron 3100, any head ups for its gaming performance? Thank you.

processors aren't all that important to gaming. and you can't just rank the processors like that because there is a massive range for each and the various models overlap.

in my opinion when it comes to gaming:
mid range Athlon>mid range P4>=mid range Sempron>mid range Celeron

I wouldn't get the Sempron. They are pretty low performance compared to the Athlon chips. I'd say get either the Dual-core Athlon 3800+, or get the 3500+/3200+. The x2 3800+ is like 160$ now, marked down from 300$....real good buy.

AMD = better for gaming
INTEL = better for multimedia

athlon 64= higher end processor for amd
sempron= lower end processor for amd
pentium4 = higher processor for intel
celeron = lower end processor for intel

Intels are not neccasarily better for multimedia, they are better for multitasking and CPU intensive programs. Programs that need "more CPU" to run fast. Games aren't really CPU dependant, so AMD chips are basically the shizz for gaming...because they do more, faster.

That's gonna rock for gaming

The Sempron 3100 would've been terrible.
