Well seeing that the Sempron you are looking at is much like the celly, I'm not quite sure how to answer. You get what you pay for in this buisness. I wouldnt expect too much but it would certainly be an improvement. I'd say for the price its worth the risk.

i would advise getting an athlon xp-m 2500+ over a sempron, cuz you can overclock the xp-m with ease and the xp processors have 512k L2 cache whereas the semprons only have the 256k L2 like the durons. So that is something to think about.

i have a HD with W2K and ATI Radeon 7000, i know, but for now, it should work at lot better

For that price, I think it would be worth it. Hell, I might just order one to upgrade my PIII server.

Not every computer has to be overclocked, I don't think his son would notice the difference.
