got an old rig that i'm selling to a friend. only the cpu is dead. so he said i'll buy a new one. so he's trusted me to find one and he hands over the cash. <br />
I'm wondering if i should get a 3000+/3200+ 64 or get a sempy. I've never had a sempy so i dnt know how they perform. I will be overclocking the rig for him before hand. I know that the 64s have the 512kb cache where the sempys have 256kb (not gettin 128Kb, thats too little). Its more of a general purpose pc so i don't know if the extra cache will be of that much benefit or if a higher speed would do him(dependingon how sempys oc of course). the restof the rig is as follows:<br />
Msi K8N neo Platinum<br />
1Gb of Ram (prob kingston value)<br />
Colorsit PSU 550w <br />
Radeon 9600 XT agp 8x (gonna be sorry to see her go <img src="/images/smilies/sad-smiley-002.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Sad Smiley 002" class="inlineimg" /> )<br />
<br />
so what would be better a 64 or a sempy? cheers

My Sempron 3400+ in my server (yeah, not a great server chip but whatever...) is the 1st Sempron to have a 64-bit architecture. It is, however, a S939, so I don't know about 754. Google it! <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />

EDIT:<br />
Try this link:<br />

You'll need to choose some of the specs in the pull- (or drop- ?) down boxes; I chose Type: Sempron and Socket: 754<br />
It says that all S754 Semprons have an "Operating Mode" of 32/64, which can really only mean x86-64.
