Default Best Budget CPU Setup

So I gonna build me a computer. I literally dream of the new 64 X2 but kinda have a tight budget.

So what would be the best setup. What is a decent processor that can get me by for a while without a hefty price on it. Im not lookin at anything powerful.

What exactly is your budget? That will give us a better idea of what you can get.

Athlon 64 3000+ vience core

If that to much for your budget then it time to start talking about semprons.

Well, there are a LOT of decent CPUs that aren't quite new. We are gonna NEED to know what you want to do with it and your budget so we can find something that will work great for you. Specificity is the key here.

Semprons aren't that bad, esp if you plan on ocing them.

I agree skt 754 semprons are quite nice for the budget user. They are more then competent to do most tasks minus extreme gaming.

On the other hand skt A semprons I would not be caught dead buying.

AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000+ sounds fine for something cheap and affordable.
