I'm buying a new computer for the church I works at... i don't want it to play games, i dont want to overclock it, i dont need alot of stuff, and gotta keep it under 500

We use a laptop now and its a AMD athlon xp at 900 and some odd MHz with 192MB of ram, and the ram runs out alot...

remember, this isnt for games!! or overclocking!!!

a sempron is the same as an Athlon Xp pretty much, do you know if it will work with the motherboard I picked out? I'm pretty sure they should be able to work with any right?

edit: i checked out Emachines and you have to get a rebate, and it comes with 256MB and then I'll have to share that with the intel extreme, then I'll have 192 available, and I'm back to where I started.

Oh my God, I would have bet thousands that no one would EVER sugest buying an E-machine, but there you go!

ya well, its supposed to replace a laptop right? and you just want a comp to do ordinary tasks, so just buy a pre-built system that comes with monitor and all that stuff? and if its really cheap just buy another stick of value ram off of ebay? lol

and most boards probably have a BIOS update out that allows them to recognize Semprons if they didnt from the Get Go.
