3200+ is better because of Level 2 cache....512kb as opposed to 256kb.

For skt754 correct? The sempron 3100+ runs at 1.8ghz with 256kb of level 2 cache, while the AMD64 3200+ runs at 2.0ghz, with 512kb of level 2 cache.

The cache makes a difference in the rate data is "thrown around brought back up". In other words, the processor doesn't have to search around so hard for information because it is saved in the extra cache.

The sempron 3100+ is more comparable to the AMD64 3000+

You can probably run MAX graphics options and MEDIUM Computer options at 1024/768.

My CPU (at stock) struggled with high computer options...

Yes you will. Your current CPU will bottleneck that poor 7600GT.

Depends on the core, but I know some of s754 3200+ run at 2.2GHz. I know the newcastles do.

You can probably get 2.4+ on that stock cooler with that 3100+.. Get a Big Typhoon or XP-120 and youll probably be getting 2.8.
