Really? Are you that much of an ass that you just need to wander into an AMD based thread and prod people because they use a chip manufacturer that they think is good, or cheaper, or whatever? Wow...

Grow up?

Evere@dy, I'd stay with the 3100+. Is it a Sempron 64 3100+? The reason I ask is because there are several different types of Sempron 3100's that were not 64bit (S754). If it's a Sempron 64 3100+ then it's practically identically to the 3200+ granted half the cache is disabled and a different stepping. Just OC the 3100+ to 2.2Ghz and save $30

Good luck
