Right now I have a PC devoted to playing videos, etc...It's got my old Sempron 3400+, and my x1600. It plays normal videos (from the hard drive) just fine, but when I try to play 1080's (also off the hard drive) it stutters like crazy. Would I be better off switching to a 2.93Ghz Celeron D?

(Both will be running entirely stock, as the goal for this PC is to run as quietly as possible - only one weak case fan, plus of course the PSU fan (which is only like 230W) and a CPU cooler (I forget which one, I bought it a while ago).

Why not just use another chip that you could use with your existing motherboard like an Athlon64 or x2?

I already have a Sempron 3400+ (runs at 2.0 Ghz) and a Celeron D running at 2.93, and boards to fit each. And I don't have any spare cash for new parts, so I'm stuck with what I already have.

Sell all of them and get an E1200.

Ah ok, you didn't say you already had the chip/board. I figured an Athlon would be best, but if you have to choose between the two: the Sempron should still be better for your needs. Check it out.

Great, thanks for the answers! (And of course, rep is coming)

sdla4ever, thanks for the offer, it's 478, but I don't think it supports HT. Thanks though!
