My mobo and chip fried a few months ago and I bought some budget replacements to get me by until I had a little more cash to spring for an upgraded proc.

I have a Gigabyte GA-K8U Socket 754 ULi M1689 mobo and a Sempron 64 3000+ proc as of now.

I have no desire to have a high end machine anymore, I went through that with my previous setup and it turned out way too expensive. I think my motherboard is fine, even though it's dated with AGP, socket 754, and no dual channel.

I have also set aside my 6800 vid card for a more cool, less space approach with an EVGA 6200.

This is the proc I am looking at, it's still a budget proc, but I want to ask opinions from fellow members of this great forum how much of a performence increase this will have compared to my current Sempron.

you should see a noticable speed difference in load times and such. i upgraded from a 2800 sempron to a athlon 3000 and it cut my load times in half for OS, games, and apps.
