Default sempron 2200 vs. 2400

alright, i posted before about a deal on a computer. i was thinking it over and wondering how content i would be with only the 1.5 ghz. so i called the place and they told me for 30$ extra i could get the 2400. i asked how many ghz the 2400 has, just to save me a google search, and he told me 2.2 ghz or more. i googled it, and the sempron 2400 has 1.6 ghz. BS. anyways, thats not what im here to ramble on about.

do you think the 0.1 ghz upgrade is worth 30 bucks?

I personally would spend the $30 elsewhere.

There is only a $19 difference between 2200 Sempron and a 2400 Sempron on NewEgg.

Besides, If I was going to do it, I'd just spring an extra ten bucks to get an Athlon XP.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600

the motherboard is universal


the store only carries amd XP 64 bit, and sempron, no athlons in the store.

and the computer is a whole tower, with everything included, and i doubt they'll sell me everything but the processor.

i guess its worth a call? ill ask them tomorow.
