I don't have one myself, but I did put together a machine with an old 754 board and a Sempron 3100+ for a friend to get online not too long ago. I kicked the tires on it for a while before I sent it to her, and it seemed really slow to me, even overclocked to 2.2 GHz. Of course, she loves it; it's a big upgrade over the Athlon XP she was using. I think I'm just spoiled by multi-core CPU's.

I tell you, these things were fast from late 03 to late 05. Mine has been in use daily since early 04. Lately it tends to stay on days at a time as the media box. Just glad that dvi is signal compatable with hdmi smile.gif

Yes, they were very quick back in the day. I had 754 systems back then. For a long time, my primary rig was a Newcastle 3000+ on a DFI NF3 motherboard. I got that thing up to about 2.4 and used it for a long time. After I upgraded (switched to C2D because AMD didn't have anything competitive at the time), the 754 mobo and chip went into a system for a friend, and was in service until less than a year ago. At about the same time, I also built another 754 rig based on the same Sempron 3100+, which was also used to upgrade someone from Athlon XP.

I'm just not used to anything that doesn't perform anymore. Whenever what I have lags in the slightest bit, I go for an upgrade. The Newcastle gave way to a C2D E4300, which gave way to a Athlon II X4, which gave way to a Phenom II X4, which gave way to an X6. An eight-core Piledriver will be up next.

I hope you're not saying you have an Opty for a 754 - Those were made for 939/940 pin sockets, not 754's.

One of my 754 boards is also a DFI INfinity. thumb.gif
