Smile Amd Processors

Another one of my stupid questions!
i have an AMD Sempron 2800+ at 2.0 ghz
is it true that my processor actualy is as fast as 2.8ghz intel chip?
if the anser is yes - for example if a games system requirments is 2.8 ghz it would run on my comp?

The semperon isn't ats a good as a p4 2.8, FACT. And that graphics card will not be able to handle good games. The max you can play with that card is probably wc3.

Hey, let's put things in perspective...
A Sempron 2800+, that runs at 2.0G, is aproximately the equivalent of a Celeron D 335, running at 2.8G...

He means Warcraft 3 and its a strategy game. You probably have heard of it.

64mb via unichrome shared graphics

Thats the video card you have though, and I'm afraid even WarCraft 3 would be a problem for it. I'd definitely update this as soon as you can. This is what will be bringing you gaming speeds down, trust me.
